try unplugging the ect,iat, and b1s1 o2 so the vehicle cant tell how much fuel to give and resorts to base programming if it idles then its not your iac look for a vacuum leak, or a vacuum hose installed improperly but it would have to be a big leak, engine needs alot more fuel when its cold, a big vacuum leak would lean it out bad when cold but not so bad when warm

1. There is NO SCREEN.
2. Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

2001 mitsu galant 6 clynder service soon ingine light keep on co


i would start by taking it to autozone and having them read the trouble codes that are in your car. they offer this service for free. You can then go ahead and fix the problems. It could just simply be that you did not put the gas cap on all the way the last time that you filled up the tank.

Wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed


Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

Hard start and choking


I have the same "problem" with my 1990 Galant SS but I didnt think it was a problem. Everybody who knew anything about cars would always advice me to get the engine warmed-up first if it was left with the engine not running for long periods of time. I keep it warmed up for at least 5 minutes or so while waiting for the temp gauge to at least move towards the halway mark. But if its hot then a one click start should be the normal case. Try to get a tune-up on your nearest service center, they dont just replace the spark plugs but also have some sort of kit that helps with the idling and startup issues.
