I have a 2001 Mitsubishi galant ES with a 2.4 liter engine. The car keeps bogging out and turning off everytime I come to a stop. Sometimes it will not stall if the AC is on. I replaced the oxygen sensor because that was what the code said it was but that didn't help. I really need help know why it is doing this.

Do you
have the same problem?

Codes don't tell you a component is bad. It only identifies the circuit that is malfunctioning.

Is the MIL still there and what code is that?

Idling is not stable causing the stalling. Have the throttle body and ISC (IAC) checked/cleaned.
