Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Galant
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.

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.
