Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

To fix the Problem described below, fobara recommended "Iron Tight". Searched but could not find "Iron Tight". I did find "Irontite" made by Kwik-Way, Inc. Is this what fobara was recommending. Or is "Iron Tight" a different product? If is is different, please identify the manufacturer. If the Kwik-Way product is correct, they make 2 Sealers: "All Weather Seal" and "Ceramic Motor Seal". Which should I use or should I use both? Please email, thank you. Mitsubishl Problem: 1) Mitsubishi Galant 2000 water blowing out of overflow. Problem started after slow radiator leak caused car to overheat and it was driven about 4 miles on fwy before car was stopped to have radiator refilled. Resealed radiator, but it opened up again. Replaced radiator. Water blowout was noted, so I replaced radiator cap, then Thermostat. Problem continues. Can drive about 25 miles before enough water is blown out (about 3 Qts), that the car starts to over heat. If it a head leak, is there some type of sealer that can be added to stop the leak? Email:

Go to an auto supply store and get the engine epoxy for the metal your block is made of. Aluminum or cast iron have different expansion rates so do not buy the wrong one! Follow the instructions but wait a bit longer than recommended before you put everything back together.

Hi VW fans a 2007 Jetta 2.5 liter with a

The problem that you describe is in no way normal. That six second lag that you describe is more than enough time to get you into a serious accident. I have experienced a similar issue on Mitsubishi automobiles. When the hold down on the throttle cable is holding the cable too tight (not enough slack in the cable) or if someone has adjusted the throttle cable to remove the slack causing it to be too tight it will cause a fast idle lag like you describe. On several fuel injected cars stick and automatic I have experienced the engine rev issue you describe. Every time it was fixed by setting the cable tension back too loose.
Another item, if the cable slack does not fix the problem, fuel injected cars are fitted with an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). They are located on or by the intake throttle valve. The price range for most is $30 to $100. If they malfunction they will raise the idle speed by letting too much air go around the throttle valve raising the engine speed even though the valve is closed. You can check if the throttle cable is too tight yourself. The IACV may have to be checked at the dealer. Only the dealer can tell you if the problem is covered under warranty.
As always check to make sure that there are no loose vacuum lines under the hood.

Spark plug blew out of motor

The spark plug blew out because it was not installed correctly and was loose. Install a new plug and do it very carefully as there may be carbon in the treads the plug screws into. Screw it in until you feel it getting tight and then turn it back. Keep turning in and out until it fully seats. Always follow the vehicle manufacturer torque recommendations, but as a general rule 14 mm plugs with a gasket style seat should be tightened to 26 to 30 ft.lbs. in cast iron heads, but only 18 to 22 ft.lbs. in aluminum heads. Likewise, 18 mm plugs with gasket style seats should be tightened to 32 to 38 ft.lbs. in cast iron heads but only 28 to 34 ft.lbs. in aluminum heads. For taper seat spark plugs, 14 mm plugs should be tightened to 7 to 15 ft.lbs. in both cast iron and aluminum, while 18 mm taper seat plugs should be tightened to 15 to 20 ft.lbs. in both types of heads.

Overheating in my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

sounds like a head gasket problem not much other than replacement can fix that. if it is not a bad leak and you want a short term temperay fix try iron tight but i suggest trading it in after adding iron tight because it will stop the leak for short term but cause major problem in the long run any local parts store should have iron tight. good luck
