Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage DE dies when idling

First replaced battery, seemed to help, then started dying again, so changed out spark plugs, and air filter. Started good today, then after 1 mile driving distance I came to stop light and car died. Would not turn over no clicking even. Pushed to parking lot and got a jump. Started right up and when I tried to leave parking lot and it died again - no click no turn over no nothing.

Help!

With the battery fully charged try scraping the positive over the terminal on the battery and see if it sparks like a draw is sucking out amps if theres no draw on the battery it wont spark at all (good) if it sparks (bad) you have something grounded and killing your battery.. gl

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
