Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2001 mitsubishi galant v6 , small evap code, shutter on accelerating, rough idle or high when car is cold. Just had the throttle body & idle cleaned. Put cleaner in the gas tank. Running on the recommend premium required for that model. Hoping its not the idle air because that expensive. Heard it could be the evap purge canister. Please help my baby purr again :( another noise I been hearing is when I accelerate, it reminds me of the Jetsons car lol. Like it purrs but in a loud worry some way.

97 mitsubishi galant has p05050 code. we change the throttle body but still loops when idle and code still present


What is the code description ?

That is not a Generic Code

You only change a throttle body if you need a tacm (motor)
& have to buy the whole thing.

Your not diagnosing the issues

You need factory manuals & trouble charts to follow,
unless you know the system & have a lot of experience
with same car,same problem

Where is the throttle body & what does it look like ?


ALL Throttle Bodies or throttle control are bolted
to the intake manifold

Think of it as yesterdays carburater

Follow the plastic intake ducting from air filter
to the throttle body

DO NOT install ANY PARTS based on ANY CODES

It doesn't work like that

Codes ONLY point to a system NOT to what to replace

I have a mitsubishi galant 1998 model.the problem is the rpm is to high even in the neutral the rpm goes up to 2000 rpm.


Do you have a "Check Engine" light? If not, check that the accelerator cable is functioning properly. When the accelerator is in the normal position the throttle plate should be completely closed. If necessary you should remove the air duct to inspect the interior of the throttle body. The cable should be have no slack but should allow the throttle plate to close all the way.

If the throttle is working properly then I would suggest looking at the idle air control (IAC) valve which controls the idle speed when the car is in park, in neutral or in gear and the accelerator is not depressed. Try disconnecting the IAC and note how the idle is affected. This will cause a Check Engine light to turn on. To clear it, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes then start the car. Let me know what you find out.

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Galant with rough idle and no power when accelerating. Replaced spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires, MAF, both oxygen sensors, air filter and the engine still...


I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.
