Question about 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT

2 Answers

Hi, My GTO Twin Turbo 1992 Model has a fault with it I can't seem to fix. I can drive it for about 1/2 a mile and then it tries to die. A lamp on the dashboard looking like a catalytic converter shape with heat lines above it appears and then disappears. It will restart and then dies after a shorter period of time. This happens again and the times before stopping get shorter. Eventually it wont start. I wait for an hour and then i'm back to square one. 1/2 a miles driving. Pleeeese help Kind regards Paul

How do I find out if the fuel filter is clogged in my 05 Turbo PT Cruiser? After running out of gas (and now with a full tank) the engine starts up great drives for several miles then chokes up and dies. ...

run the fault codes and check for canister purge valve solenoid fault . IF the filter is blocked it stays blocked . What you have is a problem that when the engine requires sufficient fuel there isn't enough and so it dies . After stopping what ever is causing the shortage is relaxed and so it starts and goes until the problem unit is activated again (Vacuum in the fuel tank)

2002 is common rail with all fancy electrics and computers and stuff like that ,now this makes it very difficult for this old fleet fitter who used to repair diesels with nothing more complicated than a vacumn controlled speed govenor ,where we used to re-calibrate the injector pump on the vehicle .I think this fault is either something simple like a plastic bag in the fuel tank that gets caught up in the pick up pipe ,failing which its a complicated electronic issue of which i confess to knowing nothing about

the onboard cpu engine control module is going into closed loop. you need to take it to a different shop and see if they can hook up a diagnostic computer and find out why it is doing it. closed loop is there only to get you off of the hiway if you are having problems not to keep driving with it like that. What ever is causing the closed loop condition could cause serious damage if not fixed.
