Why do your 1998 Mitsubishi galant shake real bad and cutoff when you stop at a traffic light or stop sign?

Why does the oil light in a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant keep flashing every time it breaks at a low speed and it just had an oil change?

This happened to me in my 1994 Mitsubishi Galant ES. This was a very annoying problem to me. I lived with it for about a year and then the oil change guy said my oil pan plug was stripped and I was leaking oil.

It was probably leaking oil all that time and I was just adding more all the time. He suggested a new oil pan and put a temporary plug in. What I ended up doing was taking it to another mechanic who was able to re-thread the plug, replace the oil sensor (and my carbon cannister fell out so he tie-wrapped it but that’s another story).

After this I have not had this problem. Bottom line is you may just need to replace the oil sensor.

How do you change timing belt on Mitsubishi Galant sigma 1200?

Follow these steps to replace the Timing Belt on your Mitsubishi Galant:

1) Disconnect the battery ground cable using a wrench. Remove the splash guards and loosen the accessory drive belt tensioners, then lift the accessory drive belts off the pulleys.

2) Remove the top engine mount and its bracket, the alternator and the power steering pump and leave the power steering fluid lines attached to the pump, and just lay the pump out of the way.

3) Remove the air conditioning compressor and the crankshaft pulley bolt, then pull the pulley off the snout of the crankshaft. Remove the belt guide plate, the timing belt cover cap and the timing belt covers.

4) Turn the crankshaft until the crankshaft timing marks line up. If the camshaft timing marks do not line up, turn the crankshaft one more time, then all the marks should line up.

5) Now, loosen the tensioner bolt and push the tensioner away from the belt. Tighten the bolt enough to hold the tensioner out of the way. Lift the timing belt off the sprockets and pulleys.

Check that the timing marks are still lined up.

6) Install the timing belt working in a counterclockwise rotation, starting with the crankshaft sprocket. While keeping tension on the belt, route it over the right camshaft sprocket. Hold the tension, then route the belt under the water pump pulley, over the left camshaft sprocket, then behind the tensioner pulley.

7) Loosen the tensioner bolt, allowing the tensioner to put tension on the belt. Turn the crankshaft clockwise two turns until all three timing marks are lined up again. Tighten the tensioner bolt and the crankshaft pulley and install the rest of the parts in reverse order of removal.
