    I’m new to Mitsubishi’s and I got a 97 2.4l 2g last week it would always need a jump or else it would die after turning off so I got a new battery and it’s been running fine.
    The heater didn’t work so I changed the thermostat and broke a bolt and the car was sitting for 2-3 days without being started and I finally drilled out the bolt and refilled it with the coolant I had to drain out and I started it and the rpms were super low and it was running rough and then it died now it only cranks but won’t start and it smells like gasoline, I also hammered off the coolant temp sensor on accident and I was wondering if that could be the reason it only cranks and won’t start it’s also cold outside

    Yep, no coolant sensor equals no start, replace the sensor, replace the spark plugs and rock on.
