    Then you need to check for spark and fuel.

    If it has plug wires,( I think it has two coils above two plugs and wires to the other two), unplug a wire from the plug. Put a small phillips screwdriver in the wire, lay the screwdriver about a 1/4 inch from a metal part of the engine. Have someone crank the engine and see if spark jumps from the screwdriver to the metal.

Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

2002 mitsubishi galant runs fine 15 min. wont start wait 20min it will start


As with any no start issue, you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure problem to proceed.
I would check those things the next time it will not start.
Could be a relay, coil, sensor, or other component.

Have 2002 regal 200k miles bought it used a couple of months ago was driving along ,came to a stop engine died . .Now when you turn the key the dash lights flash and wont start. car will start if you...


Look under the dash by the parking brake and try to see if any wires are being moved or chafed by the parking brake linkages. That is what I have found in the past.

2001 Galant..Shut off while parked and not it won't start!


That sound you hear, does it sound like it is coming from the back of the car, fuel tank? This is most likely the fuel pump starting up. I would still have your fuel pressure checked, if too low you'll have issues. If fuel pressure is good it most likely has to do with the electronics; does it have spark? Remove a spark plug lead and check while cranking the engine over. Also it is possible the timing belt failed, remove a dust cover off the cam, crank over and be certain it rotates. My gut says you have an electrical issue, such as cam or crank sensor. You'll need to check cseveral items to confirm.
If I may be of further service, please ley me know.
Thanks,
Tom
