Being a gas engine you shouldn't have to bleed it. If you have run completely out of fuel, there's a high probability that the fuel pump could have gone bad. The pump, which is located inside the fuel tank, relies on the fuel to lubricate and cool it during normal operation. If the fuel supply ran out and the pump ran dry there's a good chance that it burned out. On most engines there is a test port on the fuel rail where you can check for pressure. Hope this helps.

My car cranks but will not start RVR GDI mitsubishi


Check all fuses first, then with an assistant, check for spark with a spark tester. if there is spark at 2 plugs, check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail with a gauge. Engines need three things to run, fuel, spark, and compression. If there is spark and fuel, do a compression test, if the timing belt jumped/broke, you won't have any

1998 Mitsubishi Galant 1.8 GDI (EA1A model) starting problem. So it's not starting but turning engine over. Checked the spark plugs and they were oily. Cleaned them and still not firing. checked to see if...


Dude....putting 2 stroke fuel into a 4 stroke engine is just silly, but not where your problem lies. Check the coils to see if it is generating spark...if not then check the ignition module....even 'oily' the plugs should fire.

97 Mitsubishi legnum,runs great but takes a bit to start, thought it might be fuel pump relay as you can,t hear pump start when key is turned on, is that normal for legnums.


Hi,
is your car a GDI engine? If it is GDI you can't really hear the pump working when you put ign on.
Give me some details and I might be able to guide you there.
Chassis, engine numbers, GDI ??
