Is the engine still in time? YOu may have slipped the camshaft timing due to a belt problem. This engine is an "interference" type, meaning that you may have suffered a major amount of engine damage if this is the case.The pulses can be seen using a digital MM...accordiaman

Possible losing spark. Have engine codes checked for possible cam or crank sensor failure.

2002 galant will start up fine cold and run for 20 min, after hot soak will not start, back fires through intake


Yes your 4 cyl engine uses direct spark with a coil over each spark plug.
And the computer controls the firing of the plugs and injector pulse.
The problem could be the crank or cam sensor, or the wiring harness, but in most cases the check engine light should be on and a code set.
You might want to check the computer for codes, then try the cam sensor.

Galant won't turn over when trying to start. No spark from plugs. Changed crank sensor and timing belt and still won't start. Any suggestions


you now need to check for 12 volt power, and signal to the coil, also be sure all you timing marks are correct, if you have no spark, unplug one of the injectors and using an led test light check for injector pulse power across the two terninals while cranking, if you have no injector pulse then you could have a problem with the ignition passlock system, or key decoder

1995 galant died the other day wasn't getting any fuel replaced the fuel pump the works but car still wont start


You need three things to run: spark, fuel, compression (timing). Check for spark simple, check for fuel (crank over engine and pull spark plugs, is fuel on them? ) if not rent noid lights from Autozone or such to check upon injector pulse. If nothing let me know and we'll look further in to it.

Best regards,

02 Mitsubishi Galant, changed igniton but now wont start


There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

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.

its a very common fault with the GDi engine, normally first shows a fault after 60k miles. Fault will also make the engine feel slightly juddery on occasions whilst cruising... either/both Accelerator body or Cam sensor are the usual culprit. Both can be rather expensive.
