It may just require the base idle resetting, however not something that you can generally do at home depending on the age of the vehicle and how sophisticated the electronic controls are. Could also be a faulty idle speed control motor, common problem for early to mid 90's mitsi's. The best bet is to take it to a reputable garage, or a Mitsi dealer and ask them just to diagnose and advise you on costs, and give them an upper limit on how much you are willing to spend on diagnosis.

My 1988 buick century stall,s after driving. engine warm,s up.won,t start right after stalling.start,s after sitting 10 or 15 minutes


Possibly an ignition module or crank sensor problem. These are the two most common stalling electronics that will cause a stall when they get warm/hot and will then continue to operate once cooled down

Stalls when warm , no start when warm


What you need to do is when it stalls out then check to see if your loosing fuel or spark.Check for spark at the spark plugs.don`t just check one.Check all the front 3 a least.If no spark then you probably have a bad ignition module.It is under the coils.Good luck.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
