A clogged fuel filter can cause a Mitsubishi Galant to idle rough for the first 10 minutes it is running and then it runs fine after that. A fouled spark plug can also cause this issue.

My Mitsubishi galant isn't getting any power when I step on the gas it's hestitant?

Its hard to tell whats wrong with it. If you have a automatic gearbox then try to change the filter, which tells the car on what gear it suppost to be. If you have a manual then it may be something with your engine. It could be the candles or another part which causes your car to run on maybe 2 or 3 cilenders. You should visit a Mitsubishi servis.

Bad battery? Bad Voltage regulator Disconnect the - battery terminal Install a test lamp between the - battery terminal and - battery cable--if light lights there is an extreme parasitic load on battery Remove 1 fuse at a time from the fuse block until the light goes out.

Could be the timing, I have a 96 and a 95, when my 96 done that, i thought it was fuel filter or something of the sort, but it was that it had jumped time. Might be that your transmission is slipping... It happened with my '02 Galant. You would have to check for leaks, and may even replace the transmission fluid. spark plugs and wires may need to be changed, try that first You might need a new fuel filter, because the one you haave might be dirty
