Check your half axle CV joints. Inspect the rubber boots for any ripped rubber and replace if found to be torn. If your CV joints are ok then the problem is inside the transmission. The part that will need to be replaced inside your transmission is the TORQUE CONVERTER

Bad gas? or maybe fuel filter?

check engine mounts especially the rear box mount because under high torque situations (1-2) gears there may be mis-alignment of the drive shaft occurring and the vibration is from "U" joints behind the gear box getting out of alignment and phase angle.. Check slip joints for lubrication and wear.

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Grating Noise, Front Struts?

It very well could be the strut.
smaller chance could be the CV axle.
Also have the splash guards/heat shields checked to make sure they are all tight in place.

How do i get the serpentine belt off a 2003 mitsubishi outlander

To get this off, there are two ways:

1. Loosen the alternator, and pull it back until the tension is released.

2. There will be between the various pully's (belt runs around) a tensioner. This is holds the belt tight. With a rachet and socket, pull (push) the tensioner until the belt has slack - pull one part of the belt off (any pully) and release the tensioner back to it's position. (It will go further than when the belt was on - this is normal.

When installing the new belt, if using the tensioner, the belt will need to be placed on the tensioner last - get the belt around all other pully's in it's correct configuration, then, pull back (push) tensioner *(while holding the belt tight with other hand, and ready to be pushed over tensioner) and slide belt into place over it.

Also note: a serpentine belt will only go on one way (grooved side down).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How do you reset change oil light on mitsubishi outlander

Turn the key off.

Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.

Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.

Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.

Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.

Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.

On a highway, if I remove my foot from the gas then push the gas pedal again, I get vibration in the rear end. It also feels like going across a rumble strip but not quite as rough. It will last for about...

You could have a bad U-joint or a bad transmission mount.
If your U-joint have a grease fitting, you could try lubing it. If it does not, then it may need to be replace upon inspection.
When inspecting the u-joint. Look for excessive movement's Look at the condition as to any excsive  rust at the U-joint Look to see if there is any binding of the U-joint Look to see the condition of the transmission mount's and any other bushing to the rear axle assembly
Good luck and hope this helps.
