Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

Car stalled out and now won't start

Car cut off without warning as if gas ran out although there is still a quarter tank of gas. I've checked fuel pump by removing the fuel line as it exits the fuel filter and gas pumps out with each turn of the key. I next checked for spark and there was only spark from the left coil. I replaced the right coil but still no spark. Could this be cause or can it be a timing belt problem?

Sounds like the same thing I ran into (again mine is a Mits Mir 2001). I guess I'm late in replying though. Never knew about this site. Anyway, its probably the timing belt. My car died too just like it ran outta fuel. However I made the mistake of cranking the engine. That's a bad idea, you may end up damaging the engine.

Check the vent in the gas cap. Vacuum in the tank will build up and prevent fuel flow till relieved. When it won’t start, take off the gas cap and listen for the sound of air rushing into the tank.

My 1999 chevy silverado is cutting out and dying. i've changed the fuel filter, it ran fine about four miles then stalled and won't will start and idle then seems to run out of gas.

Wouldn't happen to be a diesel, would it? If so, do a search on ebay for a remote fsd/pmd module. Fixed my 95 'rado (in less than 20 minutes) with a 6.5 turbo diesel -it would stall wherever and whenever it wanted, without warning.

Try adding gas to the tank, it might have a bad sending unit that reads 1/4 when the tank is empty.

You might have killed your fuel pump. It's said that if you let the tank get too low or run the pump dry you can ruin it. I would see about getting a fuel pressure tester to check it.

Running low on gas... car stalls thinking i ran out of gas ... put in a the 2 gallon red container... still no start then put on another 2 gallon and still nothing just clicking like it wants to.. but...

If its a Carburator car then

1.) press the the axcellerator straight down to the board
2.) tumble a few times.. and it should start.

other possiblities besides a flooded cab is

1.) drugs from the fuel tank clogged up the lines or the carburator
thiss will happen when its running low and if the tank is rusted inside.. very hard to detect without removing the tank..

2.) the fuel pump could be clogged up as well..

The clicking sound you might be hearing could possibly be the starter.. It may not have enough power to start. Check your battery to ensure its good. if the battery is dead you may need to get it charged or get a jumper cable and a jump. but for the battery to run dry means that the alternator isnt functioning propperly. once the car is started, remove the + battery pole while the car is idling and see if it stalls or cuts off. if it does get the alternator checked... Personally i'm betting its the battery.

I wanted to just give a you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
