Question about Mitsubishi Galant

2 Answers

After re-connecting battery on 2000 Galant engine won't stay running unless I keep giving it gas. I saw some posts to let it idle for ten minutes to let the computer adjust but I don't think they meant for me to keep my foot on the peddle for ten minutes.

Yeah thats what they meant, just don't idle it too high. If the problem don't go away, read it with an OBDII scanner. That will give you what the problem is.

    I have the same problem, however I can't let it run for 10 minutes unless I'm keeping it over 3500 rpms or else it will die. And sometimes even then, it will die. I've driven it to work and back, about a 10 minute drive each way, but I had to put it in neutral and give it gas while breaking with my left foot at the lights.

Drive the vehicle for about thirty minutes. at different speeds, not above the speed limits of course, the computer will learn the specs of the car systems

Will not start up, nor will it idle. Must hit the gas for it to stay alive.


No sure why throttle body would keep a car from turning over. I have had a couple cars which ran ok at higher speed and wanted to die when I came to a stop. Spark plug wires and plugs worked for me. Sorry I cannot be of more help but that is all I got. Have you checked for any trouble code associated to the check engine light.

99 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L Car will start but won't stay running unless you keep giving it gas


I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.

Removed battery post now car won't stay started how do I fix it 2003 es 300


All you need to do is hold your foot on the gas pedal to start and hold to keep engine running, hold gas pedal for about 3 minutes then let idle, computer needs to relearn the idle speed thats why it stalls out, hope this helps,

Jeep 2002 grand cherokee dies unless i keep foot on the gas...


The idle relearn needs reset. Keep your foot on the gas at about 900 rpm. Make it idle for about 5-6 minutes. Slowly ease up on the gas until it will idle on it's own, it might take a while. After you get it to idle, it might be idling real low, but on its own, Let it sit and idle until for 20 minutes. After that it should be back to normal. You will have to do this every time you have the battery unhooked for a while.

When we drive the galant it dies when we dont give it gas. only stay started when we use the gas petal.


Sounds like an issue with the idle air control motor.

The idle air control motor keeps the vehicle running when you are not pushing on the gas pedal.

You need to replace the idle air control motor.
