Question about Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

I have a 98 mitsubishi mirage that i just had a tune up on. The check engine light has now come on and 1 mechanic is telling me that the IAC motor is about to go out and another said that I needed to get both an IACmotor and a computer because the bad IAC has now short circuited the computer. Which is right? Im on a budget & I cannot afford to take a gamble. Thanks!

Well both solutions are possible but since you are on a budget I would replace just the IAC motor it may not need a computer this is the most economical solution

Cant get my 2001 mitsubishi mirage to turn over lights come on batt is good

If the batt tests good, I'd check the solenoid. Bypass the solenoid by giving power directly to the starter motor. If the Engine turns over, your have a bad solenoid. If not you have a bad starter motor.

I have a 1994 mitsubishi mirage 1.5L with a 5 speed manual in it and i was wondering if i could put a motor and transmission from a 200 mitsubishi mirage 1.8L will fit in my 1994 mitsubishi mirage. if not...

By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?
