Just got this 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. I knew it had couple of problems with it, as I'm decently handy with cars. I thought I could figure out the problem. I'm a bit stumped on this one.
My first problem is starting the car. I assume both the problems are related but it could be separate problems. When I start the car normally it will stay on for a couple seconds then the engine dies out. My radio and everything is still on, but if I start the car and rev the engine it solves the problem and the car will stay on. Also about a week of this the car started making a high pitch ringing around where the throttle is. I'm certain it's not a belt and it only does this when I'm idling. If I rev the engine just a little bit it stops. I started jiggling hoses to see if the ring would stop assuming it could have been an air leak, but nothing. I think its a idle problem but I'm not to sure.
Does anyone have any ideas regarding the issues I've stated?
