Reguardless where it is, the transmission will have to be overhauled. I think probably a shaft snapped or the bolts could have come out of the convertor if it was making noise before it happened.

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.

Would a faulty IAC valve make a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant stall at a low idle?

Yes, it would. While the Throttle plate is closed when not pressing on the gas pedal. The IAC is a bypass passage that allows air to continuous flow to the engine. I just had the same problem with my 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. I unplugged the IAC and the engine no longer wants to stall out, it just runs at a higher RPM to compensate for the nipple on the IAC not moving back to create the bypass passage.
