Question about Mitsubishi Passenger

Open Question

My 1997 Mitsubishi chariot GDI Grandis is idling rough

After leaving the key on until I flattened the battery, my car has not been idiling without stalling. It starts well and idles better when cold, but wont idle when you stop at a stop sign etc. I put a new battery in as the other started to show signs of age. It seems as though I have low octane fuel in it or dirty fuel, but I used two fresh tanks of 95 fuel and two bottles of fuel injector cleaner but no better. Please can you advise. Gordon

205 is the width in mm. 65 is the hight of the sidewall (.65x205=133.25mm)65 percent of the with. 15 is the diamater in inches of the rim (tire hole) for example if you keep the same rims 205 75 15 would be the same width but slightly taller.
215 65 15 is wider and taller as 65% of 215 is 139.75 millimeters. if you go to 16 or 17 inch rims u can get much bigger. the width of the tire must not rub on the insides of the fenders. the hight must not contact the top of fender taking in consideration the suspension. u can look for car clubs of that model and chat with the members.

I think it is blue oil smoke that you are describing, indicating internal engine wear of piston rings and/or valve guides leaking excessive oil.

Usually, this occurs to high mileage vehicles, or vehicles which haven't had regular oil changes every 3,000 mi. for the life of the engine.

You say that it attempts but fails. If it turns over, at a normal speed and tries to start and doesn't, check that the fuel is good and new fuel. Not fuel that has been in the tank for a long time. Check the fuel filter to see if it is clogged, Check the fuel injectors to see if they are all spraying fuel and there is enough pressure in the fuel lines. Check fuel pump for proper fuel pressure. High mileage engines check for compression in each cylinder. Possible bad ignition wires or ignition timing is off. Has the engine been steam cleaned recently. Is there water in the fuel? This gives you some things to check. Good luck.

My mitsubish chariot grandis 1997 has rough idling and does not exceed 2000 revs when travelling. it also does not exceed gear number 2 when u accelerate more. what could be the problem?

Hello, I would have the timing checked first. It sounds like that may be the problem, but if it is not, a plug wire may be loose in the wrong place? Please gather as much information as possible tell me everything including with the plugs, did they remove one wire at a time so as to not put them back in the wrong place? I need to lnow if you have checked things like is it running hot, or rough at speed or just at idle, etc. Let me know okay? Thank You for using!!

I had battery check last week because it wouldn't start now it stalls when idiling

Check the alternator to see if it's working. If the battery is 3 years or older then you should have it tested too.

My 1990 nissan 240sx started to just stall out when I come almost to a complete stop and when I put in reverse if i dnt punch on the gas it will stall then it wont start rite away it takes a while then...

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem 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
