Question about Mitsubishi Galant
there are a few possible causes for this
first thing is do not blame your bro. it is probably nothing that he has done, and just unfortunate that it went while he was driving.
first thing to do is check the air filter,and fuel filters, especially if he was driving anywhere where there may have been a lot of dust. the filters may just be clogged up.
second is to check that all of the vacuum pipes on the engine are secure and not leaking or broken. this is the most likely and quite easy to fix once you have found the culprit.
it may also be worth disconnecting the battery for an hour to reset the ignition control unit as well as newer units are "semi-intelligent" and learn driving styles. this can ocassionally lead to glitches like this when two people with different driving styles use a can for long runs. the unit goes back to default setting for a day or two until it relearns you driving style.
after checking these items, it may be worth getting a computer diagnostic done as there are many sensors on the engine, and things like the air flow sensor, that could cause these symptoms if faulty without setting of the warning lights on the dash.
without a diagnostic at this point, costs can escalate rapidly if you start randomly changing components. a diagnostic test should pinpoint the problem and could save you a lot of money in the long run.
please feel free to ask if you need any more information.
