Mitsubishi MK triton V6 starting/misfire/stalling problem

Usually happens randomly on cold start up. Engine cranks with a misfire,If you keep cranking it will start and run on a couple of cyls at very low rpm for a little while. It will instantly stall if the throttle is used at this time. It will clear itself and run fine after a couple of minutes. Most of the time it will start without a problem but then if I'm too heavy on the throttle whilst it hasn't reached normal operation temp it will have a cough and start to die. I have taken it to workshops with scan tools with no code errors and have also replaced cam sensor and power resistor. I waited for it to play up on start before I replaced the power resistor. Once I replaced it without disturbing anything else, it fired straight away. I thought I had solved the problem until about a month later it has started doing it again. Any help would greatly appreciated. problem

it is possable/likely a bad ECTS (engine coolant tep. sensor), this can cause the injectors to allow to much fuel into cylinders and cause a low compression and or flooding situation, good luck, marty

Random cylinder misfire


Scan the computer for trouble codes, unless that is where you got the random misfire code. It may point out the problem. Misfires are usually fuel/air, spark (ignition), or cylinder compression related. The pcm senses a loss of power through the crank sensor, noting the crankshaft doesn't turn as fast as it should. If it cannot isolate it to a particular cylinder, it will set the random misfire code.
Would be good to know what fuel pressure is as a start. Note that cold start problems may be fuel related, as the engine requires more fuel on a cold running engine. If the coolant temperature sensor is out of whack, the computer may not realize it is a cold engine. Just a possibility.

Engine noise 3 6 v6 engine


This is possibly due to the knocking tendency during cold start. This usually happens if the oil used is of higher viscosity than the recommended value. Try changing the oil with the recommended one; and if the problem still persists, this could be due a minor leak in the head gasket or due to an excessive clearance between the piston and the cylinder, which would be sealing automatically when the engine warms up.

Car stalls unless gas constantly supplied otherwise car dies all dash lights come on usually on start up


Inspect and clean IAC valve (idle air control valve), replace if necessary. If IAC is Ok, please provide additional info!! Does your vehicle experience random or repeated hard starts?? Is your "service engine soon" light on?? These vehicles are known for faulty crank position sensor, usual symptoms are: hard starts, random/constant stalls, SES light on, misfire or no start. Some or all symptoms may or may not occur simultaneously.

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration


full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....
