Question about Mitsubishi Galant
You don't mention the model or year, which make a BIG difference.
Possible causes of poor idle:
Vacuum hose leak or intake air intake path leak.
Dirty or loose throttle body.
Throttle body IAC motor is jammed, see above. Fix is to remove the throttle body and clean it.
Dirty air cleaner.
Miss at revs...
Old plug wires or plugs.
Bad distributor coil, will also cause hard start when cold.
Timing could off setting.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
