2001 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl Automatic 166,00 miles

I recently bought my car and now all of a sudden it doesnt want to get the pick up it used to have when I first bought it. I have been told it could be anything from my transmission, catalytic converter, to a fuel pump. The thing that my car is doing is... I start my car up it squeals a little bit and it has this slight putt-putt noise to it, it also has the same noise when I am at a stop. When I go to give it gas it takes it a little bit to kick in...after a few seconds it does. Can someone please give me a almost definate solution to what the problem is? Feel free to ask more questions if you think that will help.

Th there,

When in doubt start with a scan to see if there are any set fault codes, the check light will not always be on if a code is set. I would be checking foe an exhaust leak for the noise you described, start here.

I did do a scan on it before and it said had the code P0421. The light was on before I had changed the starter and gotten a new battery post on my car because it was bad. The light hasnt came on since. Could it be a throttle position sensor or a clogged fuel filter?
