What kind of sensors are disconnected when you change clutch and spark plugs in Mitsubshi Galant V6 1998

Asked by Jul 28, 2012 at 02:52 PM about the 1998 Mitsubishi Galant

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been unlucky with my Mitsubishi Galant V6 1998 car. It has worked excellent up till for a couple of months ago when a workshop changed clutch, spark plugs and oil in the gearing box. After that the car cannot exceed 1800 rpm even when no gear is connected. The TCL-error code 12 is shown and the Mitsubishi workshop in Luleå Sweden has changed all the sensors and the steering box but cannot find the problem. They have now given up. I am rather certain that the error code must have a connection with the clutch and spark plugs change. Do you think that such a change can course this problem? When you change the clutch what kind of sensors do you disturb or disconnected? As I have heard it is only the connection to the speedometer you have to disconnect! PLEASE HELP ME with an indication that the change of clutch can course the problem above. Kind regards from Luleå in northern Sweden! Nils-Göran Jonsson.

Is it a front wheel drive?

sounds like maybe its not a sensor and could be a tcm issue

If intake had to be removed to put the plugs in the back head. These are some of the things that would have to be unhooked. Map sensor, crankcase sensor, fuel injector harness, and throttle position sensor just to list a few. I would push/wiggle all wiring connections listed.

tcm (transmission control module)
