Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant
Car now runs fine until I cut it off.then it will not start .i beleive it is a gas problem
When the problem happens, check for spark. The crankshaft position sensor can get heat sensitive, and if it stops you will get no fuel injection and no spark.

I hate to be the one to tell you this but if there is fuel,oil,water getting into your plugs than you have bad rings. the vehicle will not start because it is not getting enough compression to do so. If you love the car and would like it to run again it will cost about $1000.00 to have the rings done if not more. But since there is water than fuel getting into your plugs than it is a defenent sign that your rings are bad.

Sounds like the same thing I ran into (again mine is a Mits Mir 2001). I guess I'm late in replying though. Never knew about this site. Anyway, its probably the timing belt. My car died too just like it ran outta fuel. However I made the mistake of cranking the engine. That's a bad idea, you may end up damaging the engine.

You should have your TPS and EGR looked at as those cause rough idles...Other causes are bad idle air control valve, bad plugs, bad distributor cap & rotor, a bad wire, bad O2 sensor, etc...

Testimonial: "Thank you for your time. We have replaced the plugs,wires,rotor,cap and distributor.If TPS,EGR,o2 bad,wouldnt engine light come on?"
check fuses and fuel pump relay, and sometimes a simple bump or jolt or short can set off the fuel pump safety switch and is usually locates in the trunk hidden or glove box.
