SOURCE: need to replace the water pump on my 1997

If nothing in the cooling system has been touched in the life of the vehicle, you should have the cooling system flushed, new thermostat and new hoses (upper/lower radiator hoses and input/output heater core hoses). A new belt probably wouldn't hurt, but it all depends on the maintenance history of the car.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the air cleaner and intake hoses as required.
  3. If necessary, detach the EGR temperature sensor connector.
  4. Tag and disconnect the vacuum hose from the EGR valve.
  5. Remove the mounting bolts and the EGR valve from the engine.
  6. Clean the mating surfaces on the valve and the engine. Make sure to remove all gasket material.

  2. Install the mounting bolts and tighten as follows:
  3. 1.5L, 1.6L, and 1.8L engines—7–10 ft. lbs. (10—15 Nm)

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.

It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.
