Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

Open Question

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 L with 156K on it. I can not get an emission test done because of 2 problems. (1) the computer reading gives a code that it's not ready due to needing to drive thru a drive cycle, and (2) it sometimes stalls out at traffic lights, but always starts back up. I have no tag for the vehicle so i cant drive it legally on the streets. I took it to my mechanic who up until now, i felt that he was competent enough to fix any problem. He told me hedid not know what was wrong.

    well first you have to complete the drive cycle to find out what, if any, codes are stored. then you can find out what is causing the engine to stall. symptoms you are describing may point to transmission torque converter lock up. i've inspected cars that have expired emmision stickers and needed to complete drive cycles. what i've done is written a note on the emission print out explaining that the vehicle cannot be inspected until the computer has the proper information from the various monitors. then ask the customer to drive the car in his normal fashion for a couple of days. then return to see if the monitors were set. this may not help in the event you get stopped by the cops, but no one i've helped ever related such an incident. i've also driven customers cars to set the monitors. another option is to pay the dealer or someone familiar with the drive cycle of your car to run on a dynomometer.

    thanks. I've driven about 1000 miles, and it still ells me to complete the drive cycle, due to it restarting everytime it restarts.

    the only time the computer clears the memory, is when the codes are cleared with a scan tool or the battery is disconnected. memory should be maintained after simply turning the car off and restarting. it's confusing

SOURCE: transmission error code P1750

Might be really simple - but EXPENSIVE! I had a similar fault - apparently the first planet set breaks up. Cure - a new box. Price - crippling!

Don't be tempted to skimp on the box. Get a rebuild from a reputable supplier. A s/h box will set you back around £5-600 in UK where a rebuilt (guaranteed) will be more like £1800. The thing with the cheap box is it costs about the same to fit but you don't know how good it is till it's too late! Then you're still shopping for another but you're £600 lighter!

Also, you could be buying other faults. If the speed sensor has had a problem - the box will change badly (snatching) and that will be another £250 where the expensive box will have ahad one fitted!

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Galant won't crank

Start with the old addage, "Give it fuel, Give it fire, and you will get what you desire." Check your fuel rail under the hood, it should have a valve almost like where you add air to a tire. Press the pin, fuel should shoot out of there. If not, its a fuel problem then you just trace it back down the line. Could be a fuel filter? Next, check your spark. See if your getting any to the plugs, if no, start tracing it back. Also, you didn't say if you recently replaced plugs and wires. If there are plug wires, which there should be, make sure they are connected to the right plug. If not your firing order won't be even close, so thats a no start. Check your fuel injection relay under the hood if you have one. Make sure it is working. This relay gives the fuel injectors their power. Basically, check anything that you need to make an engine run but start with the most basic first. Could be a bad MAF Sensor too. Also, don't rule out something crazy like a Crankshaft position sensor. There are ways to back probe all the sensors with a test light just look around online and find out what sensors you have and how to test them.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 liter, the electrical issue is that the battery seems to lose power and trips out the radio and will not start and have to put in radio code all the time and fuses seem to...


How old is the battery? More than 3 years it may be failing. Summer heat will test the battery limits.
Could be the alternator / regulator is bad causing large spikes in the voltage.
Take to an Auto Zone or other auto parts store and ask them to test the battery and alternator.
good luck

2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side


The probable causes are: 1. The drive belts are slipping. 2. The drive pulleys for some engine accessories are misaligned. 3. You have turned the steering wheel to the limits. 4. The drive belts are loose.5. Your brake drum backing plates are rubbing against the brake drum. The brakes also might be a problem. check the brake drums/discs. Finally check your wheel and wheel alignment.
