Car stalling out when slowing down to light.

Asked by Jun 12, 2015 at 11:42 AM about the 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Galant 3.0L V6 stalls once I slow down for a red light or stop sign. Not every
single time, but just about. Once it slows to around 500 rpm it the just shuts off. Do you
know if this sounds like a fuel injection problem or could it be the spark plugs? Also to
note, I just installed an aftermarket radio and the problem started occurring right after this
