1998 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
My question is full of details, but will start with what happened with this at the first.
The battery was put in wrong polarity-it blew out the choke relay fuses 100/50 amp. Replaced it would idle, run for about five mins. And then shake badly and die out.
I chg. Battery post/car has new plugs /wires/new battery/ air filter/oil chg./Fuel filter. Had to tow home. It sat for awhile. Got it to an auto zone, with check engine light. It listed flow control sensor ecm /fuel pump/ timming /fuel inj/or regulator, which is part of the need repair if the fuel pump is bad, a unit repair if I was info. Correctly. The fuel pump was found to be bad, yet the flow sensor when connected kills the car and will not let you drive. However, with this disconnected the car flys. The mech put on a 4/k ananyzer. It showed a bad map sensor /replaced. It then showed multipleerrors. So I changed out the computer, cause he thought it acted as if it had a short.I have also tried 7flow sensor units and the car will still not run if you connect this, but will run w/o it great. I replaced cap/rotor. The idle is steady w/o the unit ecm, yet holds for only 7-10 mins with the unit on and it dies /won't let you put in gear to drive out due to it dies out. If the idle control were bad would I be able to keep car on at all? Other parts replaced sit ontop of the throttle housing as well, it still won't run? Whats wrong? Money is short as I am a cancer blessed alive.
have the same problem?
