I just had the same problem on my 2001 Galant ES. I took it to get repaired and I was told that it was a displaced or off-centered camshaft. Cost me $380 parts and labor.

My Mitsubishi Galant died while driving now wont start?

check the engine fuse it might be blown,or timing belt it might be wornout I had this problem happen twice to me, where it died on the road and I had to pull over and it would not start. This was a 1994 Mitsubishi Galant. The mechanic replaced what I think is the internal distributor, it was some electronic black box literally, and after that it was fine. I guess they burn out every 7 to 10 years.
