Check your EGR Valve and your IAC. These can and are usually common problems with bad idle and at sometime your car will be hard to start and when you give it gas it will feel like it almost wants to just lunge forward really fast

If it runs ok other than that, you may just need your Idle Air Control Valve cleaned (IAC). ALso, Autozone will scan your engine for fault codes for free.

Car will start but will not go into gear


If the vehicle was running fine before, you've most likely got a transmission fluid leak. Start your car, put it in reverse then drive, then back to reverse and up to park. Leave the vehicle running. Pop the hood and check the transmission fluid, I'm sure you will find it's either low, or you've blown a pressure hose and lost all the fluid. I hope this helps.

2003 mitsubishi mirage 1.5 If i was one tooth out either way when replacing timing belt what sighns would it show when starting engine


Assuming that this is a non-interference engine and that it wouldn't be damaged from being a tooth off, it would either idle fine but make very little high-rpm horsepower, or idle very badly but runs great the higher it revs (generally speaking). This is not adjustable, it has to be taken apart and fixed properly.
This would be very dramatically noticeable, by the way.
Replacing the belt will mean that the ignition timing would have to be checked (if it has a distributor that runs off of a camshaft). This could solve your pinging problem.

Stalls after getting gas then starts fine. Also noticed it idles rough at other times. No trouble codes. Any thoughts?


When it stalls after getting gas, are you filling the tank up beyond the first stop? I was filling mine up after the pump shuts itself off in order to top it off as much as possible. I learned this can plug some type of purge vent or something like that. I stopped topping it off and haven't had a problem since. Mine would hesitate and then die at the first couple stop lights after getting gas. From what I've read, the cheap fix is not to fill it up past the stop point, but the permanent fix is to replace the gas tank since the vent physically part of the tank.
