Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

Open Question

Hesitation during acceleration

I have a 2000 Galant. It has a bad hesitation during acceleration. It almost feels like 1 cylinder is not firing. I replaced the plugs and wires. Sometimes the problems seems to go away, but always returns. I want to know if the coils could be bad. If so , how can I check them before I spend $200 or so to replace them. If it is not the coils what could it be? Sometimes I think it might be the transmission slipping??

You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).

SOURCE: hesitation acceleration

have you checked the fuel injector? if enough fuel is not getting through when accelerating it could "choke" causing the hesitation

The upper intake gaskets may be leaking. They are made of plastic and metal and will leak air. Do not remove the cover on very top of manifold when changing.

SOURCE: lack of power, hesitation, #1 miss firing

you may need to perform a leak down test to the cyliner and maybe you may have carbon on that valve. make sure the new spark plug wire has the correct continiuty

Temperature light and hesitation during acceleration.


You could have air in your coolant, causing this false reading. the hesitation could be related, if the air 'bubble' found its way to the coolant sensor.

My 2001 galant hesitates on acceleration. changes plugs oil air filter etc.. any thoughts?


a faulty tps sensor will cause hesitation on acceleration.also a loose or broken place in air duct to throttle body will cause hesitation.also clogged fuel injectors and fuel filter.to save money have car scanned.if you have a faulty tps.the scanner will tell you.
