2003 galant engine light - check coil

I had my car 2 weeks and was fine, Took it for a full service, replaced timing and drive belts also then was driving it the next day and check engine light came on, lost power and wanted to stall at the give way. Turned it off and then back on and was fine. This problem keeps recurring. Took it back to mechanic, had the computer put on it and it said to check coil 2. Had that coil aswell as the coil lead replaced and problem still happening. Next step is apparently that the computer is faulty and it will be sent away for repair, I am not so sure as it was fine until its service. Any ideas please?

I have a 2003 Acura MDX touring. I just had the timing belt, water pump, thermostat replaced as a maintenance repair (190K miles). The car was running fine when I took it to the shop for repair. Upon

I have 2 questions

Why would you not check for codes & make the proper
repair within a week of any check light,that is what is required

You say been on awhile,the vehicle had a fault code & system
problem & still does

Why would you have a timing belt & water pump installed &
any repair shop return your vehicle with a check light on

What sort of shop is that to return an undiagnosed vehicle

Neither you nor the shop seen to have any interest in
these check lights Why is that?

When to change timing belt on 2003 mitsubishi galant

Most timing belt suppliers recommend 50k to 60k miles for replacement. Your Galant has a interference engine meaning that if the belt fails your will incur major engine damage up to and including replacement of the entire engine.

So if you have over 60k miles on the car go ahead and change the belt, and while you have it apart replace the water pump.

Timing settings on 2001 mitsubishi galant

Uh-oh, the belt probably jumped. If that's the case, most of them are interference engines,which means alot of bent valves. The head will need to be repaired or replaced as well as the belt & if you do it yourself, don't even be off one tooth with the timing marks or it'll bend them again.

Service engine soon-2003 mitsubishi galant, 87000 miles

it might be the a couple of thngs...

1)catalytic converter messed up
2)oxygen sensor before or after the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
3)belts need tightening
4)your fuel cap has not been well tightened.

go down to a mechanic and have them check your engine light. They most likely will have a computer to check and narrow down what might be the problem.
