1999 Galant idles ok, jerks and bucks while driving under power

Asked by Jul 22, 2013 at 01:24 AM about the 1999 Mitsubishi Galant

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When the car is idling stopped, it idles fairly decent.  When the car is out on the road, it jerks and bucks and threatens to die out.  Driving slow, the problem is still present, but to a lesser degree.

Could be the crank sensor/ cam sensor may try those.
