How do you replace crankshaft sensor on 1998 eclipse?

You nee to remove the crankshaft belt pulley, after that remove the lower timing belt cover. When you do that, you will gain access to the sensor and you should be able to replace it. After removing the lower timing belt cover you may need to turn the crankshaft so that the timing blade is not in the slot of the crankshaft timing sensor. On mine for some reason it doesn't like to come off with the blade on there at all, but mine got bent and so I replaced it with aftermarket timing sensor blade.

Why does a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant blow cold air?

Sounds like the Thermostat may be stuck in the open position. Hurry and replace because this condition will cause your water pump to fail shortly after. Cold air was my first sign and because I didn't replace it, I'm now replacing the thermostat, water pump, timing belt and balance shaft belt(because they got wet when the pump went out). $250.00 doing it myself, approximately $670.00 at the dealer.

I have an 03 Galant and when it started blowing cold air it was because of a defective cut off valve in the metal heater line just outside of the heater core. The design of the A/C and heater system places them together requiring that hot water not flow the heater is not in use. It is located next to the glove compartment and will require the removal of the dash pad.

Spark Plugs and Wires

Where are the spark plugs on a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant and can you change them without much trouble?

Spark plugs are always either located on top of valve cover or front or back of cylinder head. Always use the correct tooling which is a spark plug socket which has a rubber seeling in the inside to hold the spark plug while removing and protecting the plug from breaking. Its good to get the recommended spark plug and checking the spark plug gap before replacing new one.

AnswerTrace the spark plug wires from the distribution system and you will find that they are on the back side of the engine (nearest the firewall). No, there is no EASY way for the layman to change any plugs located like that. Feel is the best way to get them out -feel where plug is, guide the plug socket over plug, undo it and remove. In some cases, you can use a dental type mirror to reinstall the plugs. I suggest doing them one at a time to keep your firing order in line. AnswerActually I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galants and they are not on the backside of the engine. Mine are on topside of the engine behind the oil cap. There are two types of spark plugs on the 2000 Galant. Two that are connect to a psuedo-distributor and the other two have small black boxes on the which are computer sensors that are constantly reading the spark timing. It is actually very easy to change them. The plug wire socket pops off and then you can screw the plug out. just make sure that when you remove the two with the computer boxes on them that you do it very carefully not to bend or bang the box, cuz them you'll have a problem. AnswerJust changed the spark plugs on my 2000 Galant 4cyl....very easy! The above answer is very informative, the plugs are located directly on top of the motor behind oil cap.The only thing I will add:make sure you have some way to remove the plug from the engine(the plugs are about 7" down inside the motor)once you loosen the plugs you still have to some how get them out.I didnt have a tool that would fit down the hole to grab it so I stuck a few pieces of bubble gum into the spark plug socket and they came right out(kinda like putting gum on the end of a stick to get a coin out a gutter)It takes a total of 15min.Good Luck. :-)

How do you change the rear left brake light bulb on a Mitsubishi Galant 2001?

Bare with me because I am trying to remember this from memory. If you open your trunk and look on the inside next to the light being replaced, you should see three black protectors which probably appear to hold up the trunk carpeting interior. Remove these protectors and pull back the carpeting (held on by velcro attachments). You should now see three bolts with retaining nuts. Remove the nuts with a deep 10mm socket and pull the light from the body from the outside of the car. After the light is out, you will see three light sockets. The brake light should be the most inner light. Twist the socket towards the left and the light should easily come out. Remove the bulb and replace it with the exact same bulb. The bulb has two filaments, one for the park lights and the other for the brake lights. After you've replaced the bulb, installation is the reverse of removal.

Check Engine Light

Where is the reset button for the 'Service Engine Soon' light on a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant?

There is no reset button. Cars built since 1996 have an OBD-II diagnostic connector. Connecting a code scanner will let you read out the reason why the SES light is on, and also to reset it. Alternatively, in most cars, you can reset the SES by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes.

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

get your VIN and call your local mitsu dealer, they will be able to help you, but only if that stereo came with that car.

I bought one from a garage sale and all i had to do was call the dealer and have the serial number of the radio and vin number of the car and they gave me the code.

2003 Mitsubishi Galant engine misfire?

engine misfiring can be several things. first check plugs and wires. next check timing belt may have jumped a tooth or worse worn to the point it is about to break. Obviously check gas for water in tank. Especially if you like to run tank very low before putting in more gas. What happens in this case is condensation forms on inside of tank and forms in bottom of tank. Does misfiring only happen when tank gets to a certain level? but filling up and it goes away? suspect water in tank.misfiring can be as simple as way past due for tune up ,fuel filter, bad plug wire.You did not say what the engine size and if it had a distrubutor or was distributorless.If it has distributor then look at cap and rotor button. If distributorless could be cam or crank sensors acting up. But remember keep it simple, if you have not given it a tune up in a long while start there, 90 % of the time that fixes it.

How do you install the timing belt for a 1993 Suzuki Sidekick?

http://www.kick-fix.com/

see timing belt section. for both motors , 8v and 16v.

It is a pretty big job and if you want to tackle it I suggest you get a manual from a parts store for about $18 and it will have pictures and everything. You also will have it for the next repair. Good luck.
