Did you clean the throttle body when you replaced the sensors? Check all of your ignition system, plus and wires? All filters, (AIr/Fuel) recently changed? If that isn't it, I think it's time to take it into a garage and have them diagnose it for you.


Yea I cleaned the throttle and still nothing. My friend said said something about the air flow not sure what that ment. Thank you

I have an 03 Galant and just last week i had the timing belt replaced and the balance belt replaced as well as a water pump, my mechanic said the problem of my galant shutting off when I came to a stop sign or light would be fixed with all of this done! well he was wrong, since then it has then shut off on me 4 times but has no problem turning back on! my battery is brand new and so is my alternator and has had a fresh oil and radiator change! So why is my galant still shutting off? Check the fuel pump, thats my next check!
