Could be a clogged fuel filter. Could be a loose gas cap; that's the classic trigger for a CEL. Could be a fault in the exhaust system. You can have the engine's computer codes read to see if there's anything there. But it also could just be a tank of bad gas. Top off the tank with a top tier brand ( http://www.toptiergas.com/retailers.html ) right away and after each 1/4 tank you go through. After doing this 3 or 4 times, if you had bad gas it should be pretty well diluted with the "good stuff". If bad gas was the cause, after each top up the problems should diminish.
In a previous car I got a bad tank of gas from an Amoco station and I wound up replacing the plugs & wires and doing a few other things before I figured out that's what it was.

Found out that it was an EGR valve. Not covered by extended warranty. Cost about $450 at the dealer ship. The part itself at a automotive shop is about $230.00.
Pep Boy's tried to tell me $750.00 WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!! isn't the dealer supposed to be more expensive? However i will get a second opinion to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced could be a big cost saver.

Code read EGR valve. Cost $230 for the part. cost at dealer with part and labor is about 430.00 on their estimate. Pep Boys estimate is over $700 . WHAT THE HELL. isn't the dealer usually more money than anyone.
But i will have a second opinion to see if it needs replacement or cleaning this could save me a ton of money.

I am looking at purchasing an 03 Mit. Galant. It has no heat, we disconnected the hoses going to the heater core and it appears that there is no flow thru the heater core. Any Ideas?

I went through that drill a couple of winters back on my wife"s 02 galant. I had to take out the dash and replace a little electric motor that opens and closes the water to the heater core.

#2440 of 2502 power sockets are dead
Dec 15, 2009 (8:58 pm)
i have a 2003 mitsubishi gallant. i can not get the power sockets to work. i checked the fuse, the fuse was good. please help with any sugestions
Dec 16, 2009 (6:51 am)
On the wife's 02 the socket came loose and fell back into the consul. She's been using the cigarette lighter for her phone charger so I left it at that. I don't care to tear into it if'en I don't have to. I have other Junkers that keep me busy enough.
In your case is it possible the fire wire going to your sockets has a break in it or a fusible link. Try this. Take the fuse out and check the continuity with your ohm meter between the socket and where the fuse goes in. If it has continuity, check the ground side to the chassis.
