2003 Mitsu Galant Stuck in Garage for 4yrs

Asked by Sep 08, 2016 at 06:39 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Galant DE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Guys, I have a couple of quick question; I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant V4 (60k Miles) and it has been sitting in the garage (Close Door) for 4.5yrs.

- What are the things that I need to replace?

From what i researched so far, is that I need to replace the battery (of course) and I have to also replace all the fluids (Oil, Brake, Coolant, Power Steering and Transmission Fluids); but a mechanic told me that you cannot replace/change the transmission fluid because the transmission is closed, whatever that means.

Hope to hear your replies, Thanks.

Ohh, I forgot to add my other question; - How much do you think it will cost to do all the necessary repairs? - Do you think I should just buy a new car, since the value of the vehicle decreased tremendously over the years?

Updates: I installed a new battery and put a quarter oil in. When I start the vehicle it just doing "click click click...." and nothing is happening.. Is it the starter?

Update: This morning I tried to start my car again, and on the first key turn, click click click, and on the second turn the car starts... I have it running for about 20mins, and I turned it off, to re-start it again, and it did not start, it goes back to the click click click. Is this forum still active?
