Question about 1994 Mitsubishi Mighty Max
When first starting my truck, it will idle for about one second then bog down and die. Second time starting it will actually continue to idle fine until pressing the accelerator, in which case it will bog down and die again. If you just slightly pull up on the throttle it will rev up and sound great, however, if you increase the throttle too fast it will bog down. After about 20 minutes or so of doing this, the truck will warm up and run perfectly and it will not do it again until it sits, turned off, for at least 2 hours. Any ideas?

Try changing your fuel filter, like on all fuel injection and electronic ignition problems the shade tree has to use the process of elimination. This is one of the cheapest.

full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

Yes, the computer does retain fault codes. They can be retrived either with a scan tool or by using an analog volt meter. (Good luck finding one of those if you don't already own one.)
Volt meter method:
Find the diagnostic connector located next to the fuse lock under the left side of the dash
Connect the positive lead of the volt meter to pin 1 on the diagnostic connector.
Connect the negative lead to pin 12. Turn the ignition switch on and disclosure of the ECM memory will begin.
The ECM will output 12 volt pulses. There are long pulses and short pulses. The long pulses count as tens and the short pulses count as ones. Example: 3 long pulses and 2 short pulses means code 32.
If there are 2 or more fault codes in memory, they will be output one at a time in order of the code number from lowest to highest.

12 Airflow Sensor or Circuit
13 Intake air Temperature Sensor or Circuit
14 Throttle Position Sensor or Circuit
