2000 Galant A/C Problem

I have a 2000 Galant ES 4 cyl with 31,000 miles on it. The a/c has stopped getting cold, the fan works on all speeds but I'm not hearing the compressor, if that's what it's called, kick in. Does anyone know what the problem could be? I'm thinking that it should be something that would still be under warranty and that the dealer should repair at no charge. Thanks for any advice. If you have to replace the a/c compressor, is that something any mechanic can do or do I have to find one specially certified? Just asking because I have the replacement a/c compressor, but not sure if I get it installed if it would require messing with the freon or not?

2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side


The probable causes are: 1. The drive belts are slipping. 2. The drive pulleys for some engine accessories are misaligned. 3. You have turned the steering wheel to the limits. 4. The drive belts are loose.5. Your brake drum backing plates are rubbing against the brake drum. The brakes also might be a problem. check the brake drums/discs. Finally check your wheel and wheel alignment.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl ES underhood squeal on right side


Be gentle with my rating. I am a long ways away. It sounds like a fan belt. You should pop the hood next time and see how it sounds when you have the squeeling going on. Fan belts will squeel until the get warmed up and then stop because the heat makes them grab the way they are ment too. Let me know, Raz

Heater/ blower on 1999 mitsubishi galant 2.0gls


Most likely the resistors are stuffed.
Top speed the electricity goes straight to the fan motor.
The other settings go via a resistor to slow the speed, hence the 3 speeds. So the resistor feed is main suspect

Overheating and heater blowing cold air.


Heres the answer for the clicking sound

I had the exact same problem, yes it was the heater control valve, the repair was 285.00. The tech that replaced it told me it is a common problem for the Galant. He said that if you keep your temp selector on either all hot or all cold that it keeps constant pressure on the plastic gear teeth in the valve. As they break off one by one you begin to hear that clicking noise as the dont catch. When you finally break off the last one it stops working.

According to him if you always leave the dial at least one notch from fully hot or fully cold you will not experience a failure of the switch
