Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Galant VRG. When driving at low speed and turning either way, I hear a thumping sound from the engine now and then. Sounds like a minor explosion and seems to come from the lower end of the engine compartment. What could be the problem?

the truth is , you didnt post country, nor engine size.
they match engine power to transmission (load rating)
so>? forget that.. that is for later.
IT DIED< so if the engine dont START the tranny issues are moot.
so does it crank.????
if it cranks , it next needs spark got spark to all cylinders.
that is if its not the Diesel engine, IS IT??

2002 olds intrigue shakes while idling with brake on in drive


The cause is too low an idle and engine is starving for fuel so it shakes like that.The thumping sound you hear is most likely just the exhaust being too close to the floor amd bumping against it when in drive with brake on.You said yourself that it stops when you put it in nuetral,well the engine speed goes up when there's no stress on it.With some one holding the brake and it's sitting there thumping,set the idle speed up just enough to make the engine stop rocking that way.

When turning sharply at low speed I hear a loud thump. 97 Lesabre


You may find it's either a worn CV joint or it may just need greasing up.
Check the bellows for splits, and if OK you can cut the large band that holds it in place, pull it back and check for grease, fill with grease and reattatch using a tie-strap.
