    They did a car scan and nothing came up, could the sensors still be bad without showing? Or could it be the computer itself?

    They ran a Scan nothing came up. Can sensors not be working and still not show on a scan? Or could it be the cars computer that's bad?

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It can be two things. If they performed a car scan then the problem can be determined easily. If not, please ask them to do so. It can be a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor or a faulty IACV (idle air control valve). If one these sensors are faulty problem like yours occurs.

Car scan is highly recommended rather than guessing on what part to be replaced although my suspicion is a faulty MAF or IACV.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2003 Galant will fire but will not start fuel pump or filter?


It could really be either. The filter is the cheapest to replace (Usually around $20) and according to Mitsubishi should be replaced every 40,000 miles or so. I would replace the fuel filter any day of the week before going into replacing the pump. Hope this helps you.

Hello, I have a 96 mitsubishi galant es that wont start


could be the crank sensor, you need to check spark and fuel delivery, if you have fuel then its got to be the high tension side of things that are wrong, does this model run off a coil pack for the ht, could be that, you said you change the alternator, check connections at the rear of alternator, this could be the supply for the ht etc,good luck.

stop burning up your engines. cars shouldn't use any oil, it is either being burnt, which is not good, or leaking onto the ground, which means you'll have no problem finding the problem, it is right above the puddle in your driveway
