I have a 2004 Mitsubishi galant GTS with 130000 miles. In an accident where I rear ended someone and needed to have the radiator replaced from a trailor hitch putting a hole though it. A month after it was fixed, started having power issues. Was told it was the alternator, replaced that, then it was the battery, replaced that too. Car would start, but lose power quickly and stall out. Brought it to a mechanic that checked the oil pressure and found none. Removed the oil pan and found a thick slicone ring around the opening that was preventing proper oil flow to the engine. Said he could hear a slight ticking noise? After flushing it out through a filter, fould small metal chips from the engine. Thought it would solve issues. Car started, black exaust, ran loud, sounded like metal on metal. Car made it about 30 ft then died completely. Did the engine cease? Do I need to take it for a second opinion before I junk it? Please help me!
have the same problem?
