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)

Look in your engine compartment for damaged vacuum hoses. Your problem seems to be a vacuum leak. Hoses may be unplugged , split , ripped , broken from heat source, cracked. Take your time and look closely at every hose , I think you will find your problem. Good Luck Friend.

Are you talking about heater core? My labor info for 3.0L galant says 5.8 hrs. So the cost depends on what the shop charges for labor? If a shop charges 100 bucks an hour, that is almost 600 bucks and that's labor. Parts are extra.

I hate to have to tell you this, but the 2.4L (4g64) is an interference engine. That means when the timing belt broke, the pistons hit the valves, causing at least a few of them to bend.

here is the overhaul section of the factory service manual for the 2.4L. its technically from the eclipse manual but it will work for the galant. The intake manifold and exhaust manifolds may not be the same but the head, block and timing belt sections are exactly the same.

also here is a walk thru (with pics) for the timing belt procedure:

-You mean you see oil inside the radiator. ? If so then head gasket is blown or may be the head is cracked. Now water and oil are mix together.
-Do compression test to find out. If no compression then it need to be rebuild.

Good luck

Possible dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

gear oil is not the problem because it you started a cold engine and let it idle for a while (5 minutes) the gear box oil will thin out
IN correct oil generally shows as slashing gears when changing as it prevents the synco rings from operating properly
I f you have a hydraulic clutch ,it indicates a problem master cylinder and you are pressurizing the system to compress any air that should be bled out properly
If there has been no clutch system maintenance since new , or within the last 5 years ,it would be ideal to take it to an accredited brake and clutch specialist shop and have both the slave cylinder and master cylinder replaced

Your vehicle actually has two fuel pump relay's ! You can view fuse box diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter your vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on electrical distribution ,then under subsystem click on junction block . Then click on the search button , then the first blue link . Scroll down you'll see fuse box diagram . Do you know how to do electrical testing where the relay plug's into the junction box ? Check for B+ voltage , control from the PCM / ECM or ECU what ever Mitsubishi call's the engine computer . The computer will energize the fuel pump for two seconds to prime the fuel system , it won't turn it on again untill it see's a input from the crankshaft position sensor while cranking the engine.
