I'm not positive, but I think your electronic ignition has something called a pick up coil that goes bad. Sometimes the engine may just die while driving, or just not want to run when it starts. You also may have a distributor cap that Mitsubishi made that has circuitry inside the cap, so replace the cap too.
Check the codes again- there are only 2-digit codes. Code 13 is saying "MAP sensor is not detecting any change during self-test". It could be a bad MAP sensor (Manifold Absolute Pressure-the vacuum sensor for the engine), but sometimes it can be a wire harness problem. If a new or known-good Map sensor doesn't fix it, you will need a mechanic to check the MAP sensor circuit.
Usually when an engine dies and won't restart, it is a gas or spark problem. Listen for the fuel pump to turn on with key in on, not start-it should turn on for about 2 seconds to put pressure in the fuel line and up to the engine. If the pump is working, next check for spark at a spark plug wire, with the engine being cranked over. If you have a blue, snapping spark, the ignition is probably good. If no spark, it could be a bad ignition coil, a bad Ignition Control Module, or possibly a bad Crankshaft Position Sensor.
Starter is located in the back of the engine attached to the transmission, it is held in with 2 bolts and 1 nut on a stud... disconnect the battery before you start or else you might get some good sparks... getting to it can be a real knuckle buster... good luck.
You don't need to, just cycle key, on (not start) off,on,off,on and leave in on position and count flashes of check engine light. Will be a 2 digit number with pause in between. For example: 3 flashes, pause, 3 more, is code 33. 1 flash, pause, 2 flashes, is code 12. When you get 5 flashes, pause, 5 more, that's 55 which means end of message.
did they change the fuel filter at the same time?a bad filter will cause the fuel pump to overwork and can cause premature failure.you may also have a fuel pump relay going bad,it is probably located in a fuse/relay box under the hood.
