Check maf sensor and throttle body, intake leaks downstream of the maf. Could also be a clogged injector or fuel filter. If you have some carbon buildup a can of Seafoam in the gastank will help. Also would be a possible failing throttle position sensor
Please kindly let me know if the information was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Car quit running at red light


Your no start condition is either lack of fuel(doubtful since it used to restart) or no spark. No spark could be from a failed crankshaft or camshaft sensor.

Engine skips when accelerating and runs fine at idles and top speed


If you feel the engine missfire on acceleration, you could have a weak spark plug and/or plug wire. If you have not replaced them in over 30,000 miles I would start there.

Mitsubishi spyder cranks but can't start, it has spark and fuel pump runs but do not know pressure psi.


sounds like a bad ignition module if your pressure reads out good, if you have spark and no start it most likely is this since it takes the signal from the distributor and sends it to the injectors and the spark coil get a reading on that pressure first though

2003 Mitsubish Eclipse GST Spyder alarm goes off for no reason at all. If you hit the unlock button it quits, but it might go off again at some random time.


I HAVE A SPYDER ALSO. ALTHOUGH, I HAVE NEVER HAD THAT ISSUE, THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET THE ALARM TO STAY OFF WITHOUT GOING OFF AGAIN IS BY INSERTING THE KEY INTO THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR. THAT RESETS IT PROPERLY.
