Testimonial: "Thanks for your informative reply"
I'd be tempted to have fuel pressure checked, if at all possible, when it quits. If nothing else, carry a can of quickstart with you, and when it quits, remove air intake at throttle body inlet, and open throttle plate and give a good squirt of quick start, then try to start it. If it starts for a second or 2, then you know you have spark, but no fuel. I've seen fuel pumps work good while cool, and cut -out when it gets hot. Then sit and let pump cool off for 20 minutes or so, then pump up to pressure again and away we go, until it gets hot again. You might also find if you park in the shade, you'll get further, or even on a full tank. Another good idea would be to change fuel filter in case fuel pump is working too hard pushing fuel through a plugged filter, and causing low fuel pressure.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 mitsubishi
I hope this helps. I had a problem on a couple of different Mitsubishi's where the battery went dead and all the major components were good. No warning lights came on. Check the fuse block . Not the standard fuses but the specialty fuses, the block fuses. Look at them carefully with a flashlight.Test them with voltage meter if necessary. Make sure that one is not blown. With any luck a dollar fuse will turn everything back on.

GO TO AUTO PARTS STORE BUY A FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE THAT CAN CHECK FUEL PRESSURE UP TO 100 PSI. LOCATE YOUR FUEL PRESSURE TEST PORT.LOOK FOR SCHRADER VALVE ON FUEL LINE NEXT TO EGR VALVE.PLACE A RAG NEAR THE SCHRADER VALVE AS YOU INSTALL FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE TO CATCH GAS SPILL AS YOU SCREW IN FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE HOSE FUEL PRESSURE 30 - 45 PSI WITH ENGINE RUNNING. THE ENGINE MUST BE OFF HOOK UP THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE.IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE WILL HAVE INSTRUCTION HOW TO HOOK UP FUEL PRESURE GAUGE.BE CAREFUL CHECKING FUEL PRESSURE IS DANGEROUS JOB.DONT ALLOW NO MASSIVE FUEL SPRAYING WHEN HOOKING UP FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE YOU WILL GET CAR FIRE.
