Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

I recently had a oil change and a tune up. My car is running and sounding fine but when I cranked the car up this morning, my engine light came. I also bought a gas lock from auto zone so that no one can damage my gas line but I put that on in July and never had problems. what could it be???

You could put your old gas cap back on for a week to see if that makes the light turn off . You could also go back to Autozone and have them read the codes from the car. They do it for free to sell you parts. That way the car can tell you what the problem is and you do not have to guess. For example it could be that you need to replace your oxygen sensor.

Engine start and then stop, engine will not running continuesly

You may have a faulty MAP sensor. If you have already checked this part and it is fine. Please write back with as much detailed information as you can. Typically I request Year, make, model, mileage, symptoms, Engine light status, if engine light is on I need the codes read (so I can review them), tests that you have run and what you found, recent repairs and/or parts that you have changed, and the maintenance history (Ex: tune-up, oil change, charging system and battery). I hope this helps please write back. I'd like to know how the repair is going. Good luck.

First, the check engine light is telling you there is a problem with the emissions or performance of the engine. You need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes.
The smoke in the morning could be a leaking head gasket - something is leaking into the cylinders and being burned.

1995 Nissan Serena stops running after 1 hour of driving up and down hills

It sounds like a electrical problem would advise to take it to a mechanic to see if there is signal from a sensor dropping out for example a crank sensor being faulty would cause a car to stop running. would like to no more information on the wont turn over such as do you have power, lights on inside the dash does it try to crank but just not start.

Check, clean and tight correctly the battery leads. If the problem still occurs remove the electrical starter motor out from the engine, repair it (change carbon brushes, bearings, ...) and install it back in place. Then test the engine. It should cranking & start immediately.
Good Luck!

2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.
