Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
When i accelerate from a start and cruising the car has a hard time accelerating. It shakes a lot and sputters. I replaced the spark plugs and air filter. What could it be???? Please i need help ASAP!
Is this a 2.4? I had one that the balance shaft belt broke and made the timing belt jump. Had the same symptoms as you. Vibration comes from the unbalanced oil pump shaft, sputtering could come from the timing being off.

May be the micro filter in the high pressure fuel pump. This pump is located in the engine bay. The vehicle also has a low pressure pump in the tank. If the high pressure pump is not delivering fuel to the fuel rail effectively in the GDI versions, the car will die under load. Its not a big job to do usually its a kit replacement with o rings and a micro filter. Probably a job for the serviceman.
