Auto Mechanic: nelson freitas,
 replied 4 months ago

it could possibly be a large number of things causing this...

Is there a check engine light on or any other issues that you have noticed with this?

I will look into possible causes for this that are specific to you vehicle. What size engine is in the Galant?

its a v6

From what I have found it is very common for the throttle plates to become quite dirty and cause this issue with your vehicle.

I would recommend starting with cleaning the throttle plate.

Let me know how well this works and if you need any more information.

whats a throttle plate
Auto Mechanic: nelson freitas,
 replied 4 months ago

it is what controls the amount of air that enters the engine. If you are unsure of how to clean it properly I would suggest taking that car to a repair facility and asking for a throttle body or air induction service.

I have used many different products and I find that BG products are the best but these products are not available at parts stores they are only sold to repair facilities. If you go to the BG website they do have a shop locator that will help you locate a local shop that can help you out.

Also, can you please rate my services today, Your honest feedback is appreciated.
If you dont feel like I deserve a 5 star rating please let me know if there is anything else I can do before rating
