Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant
Got a 98 Galant and got stuck in the mud during deer hunting. During trying to get the car out the engine fuse blown and oxygen sensor broke. Replaced the fuse and sensor - the car starts fine. As soon as the gas is pressed the engine dies. The car will run if you press down on the gas pedal hard but black smoke will come from the exhuast and can only get top speed of 25-30 mph and 4500 rpm (doesn't shift into gear). The car dies if the car come to a stop. When I try to restart the car it doesn't start but if I take the car keys out and insert again it will start!! help ....
I would take a look at possiable damage to the PCM (powertrain control module)
