Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage
When in idle either in park or in drive but stop it seems like it will shut off but doesn't. this is a 1995 4-cylinder automatic.
I think the solution to your problem is to check the idle speed which should read 850rpm. If it's less then you should adjust the idle speed screw on the throttle body.

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates
is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use
carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC
chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is
running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the
speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and
blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the
negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control.
Below is a picture of the switch I mentioned.
