The car hesitates when idling or stopped at light/ stop sign, and the rpm drops to zero then goes back up.

The battery was a red herring - it would not have anything to do with the problem.
Faulty spark plugs could cause a miss but probably not make the engine stall.
What you described is a classic example of a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body. The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake. It opens the control valve to raise idle speed when necessary.
I would check the control valve and the throttle body.

I need to replace the idle control module. Where is the idle control module located of 2003 mitsubishi galant 2.0 liter engine?

We don't have a galant with a 2.0 engine in the USA - - the idle air control valve should be mounted on the side of the throttle body.

Why my galant 92 model that the idle not stable in will up and down and sunddenly the engine shutt off.i change fuel pump,ignition coil,the spark plug, but still in that problem, pls help me to this...

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

It's common on Mitsubishi cars specially when the car ages. The problem will surely be on the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. The MAF controls the vacuum supply in the car and has connectivity on the air and fuel mixture.

If the MAF sensor is faulty, you'll have erratic idle. Sometimes will result to stalling too. The MAF sensor is located in the throttle body where the air intake tube is connected. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

2004 Mitsubishi Galant sometimes struggles to start the engine & drops RPM's when I brake or the car is on a complete stop. (just replaced alternador)

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is a common issue on this car. You definitely have a faulty IAC (idle air control) valve. If the IAC is faulty the car is hard to start, may experience an erratic idle or just stalls when depressing the brakes. The IAC is located on the throttle body so you will need to have it replaced to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2003 galant not heating properly cold air will blow but no heat

make sure first you check your anti-freeze level. one simple procedure to do is to see if both radiator hoses are the same temp after the car is warm up. if not suspect faulty thermostat.

My 2000 saturn sl2 starts perfect when it is cold, once it is warm it idles iradically and stalls. If I cut it off for 5 or more minutes once warm it is almost impossible to start. It has to be cold.

I am not completely familiar with the Saturn car lineup, but I will offer some information for the problem at hand.

It sounds like it has to do with something called a "Throttle Position Sensor". Again, Saturn may call it something different. On some vehicles, the TPS works in conjunction with a module near the cooling (radiator) system. As the car and coolant warm up, a springloaded device inside the module is pushed up allowing it to touch electrical connections. When these nodes are touched, completing the electrical circuit, it sends the information to the TPS telling it to lower the idle speed. If the TPS is faulty, then it will idle wildly as it warms up.

This may not be the case for your Saturn, but it sounds very familiar to a problem I had with a Ford and a Toyota.

Good Luck!
