car stumbles when in gear.

Postby 72rs » Mon Oct 12, 2009 3:57 pm

im tying to fix my dads 97 galant that has a strange problem..........the car will start and idle fine (1100 rpm at warm up......800-900 at warm idle). when you give it gas (really fast) in park it will stumble and act like it wants to die (but it dosent), if you ease into the throttle slowly you can go to any rpm you want with no problem. also when you put the car in gear (automatic) it will stummble really bad when you give it gas.......the car wont even make it out of the driveway. this is my first mitsu to try and fix..........and i have no clue where to start...also the check engine light dose not come on. it works .......just no codes.
