Question about Mitsubishi Mighty Max
Only when the engine is cold, and the check engine light comes on while on the highway, it will decelerate like my foot is off the gas no matter how much I press it. I have to take my foot off the gas completely and re apply it to get the car to try and accelerate again. it sometimes bucks and sputters during throttle as long as the check engine light is on, which is again only first thing in the morning. if I pull over and cut it off and restart it, the light is still on, and after a few minutes it will shut off on it's own and it runs fine like nothing ever happened. all sensors are plugged in securely and dry. I recently changed the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, pcv valve (and cracked the valve cover tightening it down) fuel filter, and air filter. could this be a mass air flow sensor, o2 sensor, or egr valve? I did push the diaphram in the egr valve up and it moves freely. and for backround purposes I did seafoam the truck like a week ago by pouring in through brake booster line into the intake manifold. thank you

Any trouble codes? There should be a code registered by now. That should point you to the problem. And if not, you probably need to look at the sensors data feed when the problem is going on. Look at live streaming data, I mean, the MAF, oxygen sensor, in fact all of the sensor data.

Are there any codes/check engine light?
Just off the top of my head.

hi there, i had the same problem with my 98 astro van, and took it to the shop, the computer pumped out a mass airflow sensor, they replaced it at considerable cost lol, but the van now runs good

Check engine light on? Any codes? Missed before and after the cap was changed? Or is the cap new so you assume its good. I have had caps bad out of the box.
