I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. Was running fine and now it won't start.


Asked by Dec 09, 2014 at 11:56 PM about the 2000 Mitsubishi Galant LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It does turn over and sputters. I found gas
in the oil with very little oil left even tho I
recently got an oil change. There's also gas
leaking down the side of the motor. I also
checked the cylinders/plugs and there was
quite a bit of oil in the end ones.

Fuel injectors leaking or stuck open? Dangerous to try to start the engine with the oil pan full of gas


Possibly. I was worried about a blown head gasket or bad pistons. What's your take on that?
