Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant
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??
the theft light flickering leads me to believe that your problem is with the vehicals imoblizer system

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).

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.

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
