My car transmission won't engage when I put it in any gear...... 03 mits galant


If automatic, could be toast, but at least remove trans pan and inspect filter, wiring and linkage. If stick shift, check linkage and clutch. Either trans could have broken u-joint in half shaft.

Mitzy fto 1995 no gear


The Mits automatic trans of the mid 1990's are not the most reliable. In fact the number one problem with the Mits Galants of that era is the auto trans dies. Unless you have a 4WD trans I believed the Eclipse used the same trans as the Galant.

This is the kind of thing you have to pretty much take to a trans shop. One word of caution; do not let them take your trans from the car to figure out what is wrong with it unless you are planning on having them fix it. This is a typical ploy of trans shops. They get your car in and get your approval to pull the trans to check it out. You will not get your car back together unless they rebuild the trans so call around and ask about the price of having the trans rebuilt before you take it anywhere so you have an idea who is going to rip you off so you can avoid them right up front. With that said..... Assuming the transmission is filled with the correct amount of transmission fluid you should know that the major weakness with the the 7th generation Galants (1994-98 Galants) is the auto trans fails. Generally you will see a gradual loss of function. First it will stop going into some gears, then it will not even move the car at all for a short waiting period. In the end it just wont move the car period. Ultimate recourse is to either rebuild the trans or replace with a manual unit from a junk yard.

1995 mitsubishi galant will not engage in any gear but park does keep it from rolling. Would this be because of the torque converter?


You have a 7th generation mit galant. These are great cars but they have one major weakness; the auto transmision dies. Generally you have to have the trans rebuilt or many owners swap ion a manual trans. There is a great web site for owner's of the mits galant. http://www.thegalantcenter.net/ lots of great information about galants to include hwo to swap the auto trans for a manual. You want to go to http://www.thegalantcenter.net/forum.php and scroll down to 7 generation section of the forum Galants are great cars; I own 4 of them, all 7g

I don't know what a RVR is but this is the kind of thing you have to pretty much take to a trans shop.
