Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Colt

2 Answers

On starting the engine the engine warning light stays on

Pressing the accelerator has no effect, no accelaration and car only does a max of 30mph even with accelerator pedal flat on the floor. This has happened 3 times in a few weeks, the last twice within the past 3 days. Each time the problem has resolved after starting the engine up and turning off 4 or 5 times and revving the engine hard once. In between the car runs really well with no problems.

Actually a 2005 Colt

This sounds to me as the throttle position sensor or the air mass meter

Traction warning light comes on at 30mph and puts it in safe/limp mode - can't get faster but also doesn't slow down unless I press the break (even when not touching the accelerator)


Probly a computr issue...dont guess on parts. Unplug it and clean pins..then plug back in..see if car reboots. If no git it scand but find anothr mech. Go to surecritic.com

Will throttle position sensor effect your accelaration from a stop ?


Yes, the TPS will definitely affect your acceleration from a stop.

2002 Chevrolet Blazer won't accelerate past 30mph


A flashing check engine light means the engine is misfiring. This flashing light will eventually set a code in the low 300's. When you get the code it will tell you which cylinder. If you get a straight 300 it means multiple misfires. Right now if the light is only flashing, check the secondary ignition for loss of integrity. It's more than likely there. I hope this helps.
