    It still drives, but the pedal is stiff and jumps a little sometimes.

It could be the spark plugs, at least that is what it was for mine, if you have over 50k miles without a spark plug change i highly suggest one, also a oil /transmission change would be great for your car too if you haven't done those reciently. I would also suggest using a higher grade gas, sometimes this fixes the trick too.
If you try all those and still experiencing hard transitions please let me know and i'll try a more indepth analysis on your car.
Thanks jyotsna.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant will not start, sometimes. This just started when I got home today. Car sat for about 1 hour then wouldnt start. Engine was turning over but would not start. Waited about an hour...


Check your fluids, oil and coolant. May need to check radiator fan operation. And check for trouble codes. If the cel light came on, it should set a code that can point to the problem.

I have a 2003 mitsubishi galant, 4 cyl. whenever i take off it goes really slow like it doesnt want to change gears. (automatic) i had the trans checked & they said it's ok. could it be a fuel...


I have a similar problem...when at a stop it jerks in hesitation sometime feeling as if it wants to stall. It also does this when accelerating from stop...it has completely stalled out once when accelerating after switching from reverse to drive, but started right away.
