Car shut off and won't start back

Asked by Mar 14, 2018 at 05:52 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Galant

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4 that is not
getting any fire AT ALL. I was going down the road
about 50 and it just shut off and hasn't started
since. We have replaced the timing belt ( I know it's
not out of time husband is a mechanic but this one
has stumped him) balancer belt, and crank sensor
and still nothing.

Being a mechanic, your husband should have an idea of the possible cause(s). I feel that he was not really sure of where the problem is when he went ahead and replaced all these parts and the vehicle still does not start. If he works as a mechanic, he should consult his friends that are also mechanics. This is what I do when I find myself stumped with a problem. No offense intended, just common sense.

Yes you are right we have and it seems everything they come up with isn't right he is leaning toward the computer but not 100% and the reason he done that is because my belt had also fallen off. No offense taken

Mine did the same thing turned out to be the antitheft system
