Question about 2005 Mitsubishi Galant

Noise when accellorating

I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Galant and I am having a metal running noise that is happening only during accelloration. If the car is in park or at a stop, it does not make the noise. It appears to be coming from the left front end, any ideas of what it may be?

Do you have the 2.4L four cylinder I bet?

Look underneath the vehicle at the exhaust pipe where it passes under the oil pan. The heatshield on this pipe is known to rust off and rattle. So much so that there is a bulletin to remove the shield (two 10mm bolts and one clamp) and throw it away! 2008+ models no longer have the shield, as it is unneeded and problematic.

I got into my 2006 trailblazer today and when I accellorate it make a loud squealing noise


It sounds like the black serpentine belt. It's about $20-$40 and easy to replace. Or it could be the pulley. First check that belt.

01 lexus is300 starts and idles fine but when I give it gas, it falls on its face.

First, your CEL does work, correct? If so, it may be a fuel delivery/pressure problem. It could be that your fuel system is clogged or that your pump is not switching to high speed under demand/accelloration. When at idle your fuel pump is at slow speed. Whenever there is a demand for high fuel pressure, thecircuit opening relay closes(in small black box by ECU) and allows the pump to run at high speed. It's a possibility this relay is not energizing. The only way to check is to verify you have power across terminals 1 and 2 and that the relay does in fact close. Fuel pressure should be 43 psi and the only way to manually check is to install a guage on the regulator using adaptors. Another aspect, even though you're not throwing a misfire code, you could have bad spark ie plug wiring is tracking, coil packs grounding out. This is the only thing I can think of at the moment that wouldn't give you a CEL, but give you those problems. You may want to check A/F ratios and see if its running very lean during accelloration.

I own a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. At highway speeds I hear a loud winding noise coming from what sounds like the right front of the car. And also a whistling noise on deceleration.

sounds like you have an hole where air is blowing past. check for any missing screws or holes. if a mounting brace for any hoses or pipes that run under the vehicle have come loose they could whistle as well. if the noise during deceleration only happens when you brake then it's time for new brake pads.
hope this helps

When the weather is warm...

Hot weather equals thinner oil equals rattles

If the engine is a high miler try using a multigrade with a higher viscosity or dump a can of STP or Wynns into the engine to bulk out the oil when it is hot
