Question about 1990 Mitsubishi Galant
No, it is not a distributer problem.
The problem is in one of three places.
Either the alternator does not have enough output, the battery is not accepting the charge, or since you said you have had these checked poor battery connections.
Begin by removing the ground cable from the battery, now remmove the positive cable and using a light peice of sand paper or wire brush clean the terminal from the bettery all the way to the starter at every connection. Replace the positive on the battery and do the same thing to the ground cable.
Use a dieletric grease or a little chasis lube on the connections to prevent corrosion build up.
This should take care of your problem. If not then take it to an automotive electric shop that can check it with the proper equipment.
