Hi, has your battery light been coming on? Will the car jump start off another car battery? If yes, I would guess your alternator has failed. To verify, jump start the car, remove the jumper cables, and use a voltmeter to check voltage at the battery. Voltage shoule be at least 14 with engine running and no jumper cables. If less than 14, remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts chain. If you have questions or need instructions for removing the alternator, please let me know.

    OK, what does the car do when you try to start it? Have you tried to jump start the car?

    Great, and do you have a handheld voltmeter or is there one on the instrument cluster you can use to check battery voltage after the car is started and the jumper cables removed?

How do i replace starter on a 1997 galant



Before you start, be sure to disconnect the battery. The starter is located between the firewall and the engine, underneath fuel injection assembly. Stick your hand in there and you should be able to feel how the starter is positioned. There are 2 or 3 bolts holding the starter and they're easy to remove. You need to disconnect the wire on the starter coil (the coil is located on top of the starter itself).


Now the fun part: removing the the starter itself. The way I did it is by wriggling it out the open space on the left side of the engine, hence the tight fit. Move any cables or wires that may get in the way for more room. (Important advice: Remember, patience is a virtue!)And there ya go! To install/re-install the starter just do the reverse. It's a lot easier to put it back in than removing it.

Car just stopped (sudden stop) when it's running on the road.


You will need to Change the Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter and Also Check the Belt Tension. If it is even a little loose it will not Charge the Battery and could cause this problem also. Let me know what you find.
