SOURCE: Engine motor mounts on 2001 PT Cruiser

Place a block of wood under the engine sump to prevent damage when you jack up the engine to take the tension off the mount. Make sure you do not jack the engine up too much as you might damage the exhaust,cooling hoses etc.

SOURCE: need to know about changing the timing belt on my 2001 mitsubishi

This will take about 3-4 hours. If you look at the drive belts, they will all have to be taken off to get to the timing belt. The engine crankshaft has to be positioned for marks to line-up. The crankshaft will have to be prevented from turning so you can take off its drive pulley. Rotate until the alignment cylinder is near TDC, remove sparkplug, then packing a small rope on top of the piston prevents the engine from turning.. Once you change one timing belt, you will never buy another car with a timing belt again. You can get a manual on eBay.

SOURCE: water pump chang on mitsubishi Galant 2.5 V6

Waterpump replacement requires removal and replacement of your timing belt. Because of this it is not your typical do it yourself repair. Engine timing is critical, and not having your belt set correctly can lead to catastrophic engine damage.

You can purchase a service manual at your local parts store to get an idea of what is involved, however this being an interference engine you should leave this job to a professional if you are uncertain enough about your abilities that you need to ask for help on it. The cost to replace the waterpump is far far less than the cost to repair a engine that had an incorrectly set timing belt.

SOURCE: need radio code for 2001 mitsubishi galant

I read on another site that if you get locked out, your radio will show OFF. All you need to do is keep your radio on for an hour. It will reset itself. Your car doe not need to be on. Not sure if this works, but it is worth a try and may save you $80!!

Repeated Motor Mount Failure on 2001 Mitsubishi Galant.

Odd situation. There's four mounts only: one on the transmission, one next to the water pump, and two on the center arm (front and rear engine sides). Mounts can fail due to oil contamination, and of course, rough treatment, which you say you don't do.

The center arm mounts are the most common failures, as these absorb the torque movements of the engine. Multiple failures are unusual, and aftermarket mounts are usually acceptable quality.

The question is now which mount or mounts were replaced. It would be VERY, make that EXTREMELY, unusual to have all mounts fail, and to happen twice in 130K. I would now question the motives or skill of the mechanic. Perhaps there was another noise of clunking that was described as "motor mount" failures.

2001 Mitsubishi Galant Motor Mounts Failing

Check the NHTSA comments on They have a list of consumer complaints separated by vehicle and also the makers action plan or Recall number.

You can start an investigation with your report too.

Sometimes with repeated failures like yours there are other causes. I am not familiar with your brand, but if you have rear wheel drive, then the transmission mounts can be soft and putting to much of a strain on the motor mounts.

The body or frame can be less rigid than normal and allowing the engine to twist with the Torque from the motor. You may also need to center the engine on its mounts before tightening it down the mounts for good. There may be shims missing to help align the drivetrain.

If this vehicle has a driveshaft, you should feel any vibration in it, but a bad vibration can affect the motor mounts too!

Check the site I mentioned for details.

2001 Mitsubishi Galant leaks water into passenger side floor when Air conditioner is on. Whats wrong with the car?

The A/C evaporator drain tube is most likely blocked. If you have a V6, you're in for a real treat trying to reach the thing to clear it. The tube is on the firewall behind the driver's side rear motor mount, and slightly to the left as you're facing the firewall. It is a 1/2" diameter metal tube projecting about 1/2" from the firewall, and is covered by the firewall sound and heat blocking material which has to be folded back to reach the tube. A pair of what I believe are brake lines are one finger's-width in front of it, making it VERY difficult to get to the tube. (Brilliant design, Mitsubishi!) If you are very dexterous, you can slip a small piece of wire or a cable tie under the brake lines and into the tube from the front to try and clear it. Good Luck!

I having trouble finding the crank position sensor on my mitsubishi galant.

You did not specify year or engine size, but...

The crank position sensor is located inside the timing cover, behind the crank pulley.

The wiring for it extends out of the timing cover by the motor mount upwards to a three wire triangular connector. On four cylinders the connector is mounted by the front corner of the head. V6 models the connector is mounted in the valley between the heads.

Later 4cyl models integrate the connector into the lower cover, but the sensor location is still the same.
