Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

Getting fire and fuel and still wont crank

I was driving down the road when my car died. its a 2000 model mitsubishi mirage. we thought it was the fuel pump because we didnt hear it coming on so we changed it. turned out it wasnt. the engine is getting both fuel and fire from the spark plugs. thinking it could possibly be a sensor?? any ideas?? and is there anyway to jump the obd2 to get the codes from the check engine light?? i cant get it to an autozone and cant afford an obd2 reader??

    If it is getting fire and fuel the only other thing is the timing belt. How many miles on the car?

99 mitsubishi mirage just died as i was driveing. now wont crank, sounds like timing is off. Any suggestions


If the car dies like you flipped a killswitch and wont even try to crank the motor I would definitely lean toward the ignition switch in the steering column is fried. Once it shorts out the car dies and wont crank.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage that starts then dies


There are a few things for you to do to get it running right. Any fuel that may have been in the system would have turned in to varnished and needs to be cleaned out of your fuel system. You can buy a can of Sea Foam from the Auto Parts Store and follow the instructions. THe other thing to is to buy a can of throttle body cleaner and clean out the throttle body and Idle air control valve which would cure the stalling problem. Start with that and give it a good run on the road and then do an oil and filter change to ge all the water condensation contamination out of the engine and also to the transmission fluid and filter change too. Good luck and this should na a good start to getting your car running 100% again.

1998 mitsubishi mirage wont start?


check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead

If you have spark, try changing the fuel filter. If you don't have spark, get back to me.
