Question about 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS CVT Sedan
Hi. I have a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer and for some reason the "Service Engine Soon" Light keeps popping up (comes and goes) but my car keeps dying on me. Mostly when stopped or in reverse the RPMs go very low almost the the Zero line and then go back up to normal, but when this happens and i dont put it in neutral and give it some gas it will die. Most of the time it does happen when i'm moving in reverse. Please help, i've been to so many mechanics but unfortunately they have not been able to figure out what causing this. Thankyou !

first thing to do is remove spark plugs and if they smell really fuely you will need to change them if that doesnt help you will need to get the microtech tuned for a good coldstart , this depends on if its running stand alone or as a piggy back
please leave feedback.

could be the oil pump, but before you get to that, whens the last time you had you oil changed? is it the right type? was the filter changed to? if the oil is to thick for your engine, the pump could be having a problem pushing it. If its dirty, same thing applies. Next time you change your oil, be sure to use a full synthetic. its a superior oil all around.

You first have to find out what the OBD II codes are by using a OBD II hand held machine that goes through the codes and lets you know what is coming up. There are like over 20 or more things why the engine light came on so please use the OBD II code sensor hand held device which will tell you off the bat the answer to why the engine light came on. You can go to advance auto parts and have them check that out for you at no cost.
