Question about Mitsubishi Colt
Just bought a 2004 Mitsubishi Colt 1.5L CVT. Today was the first time I drove it from cold and when I put my foot down to take off from stationary the engine died. Kind of felt like it ran out of gas as I tried to accelerate away. Or what it feels like in an old car when you pull the choke out when the engine is already warmed up. It started up again fine and did the same thing again. If I only put the foot down lightly it didn't die but it was like the engine was choked or something. As the engine warmed up the problem went away slowly and once it was up to temperature the problem has gone away completely.
Its a faulty auto choke not sure on model so dont know if its electrical on machanical the used to be a small spring that was conected to the carbs with water running around a housing unit when the water got hot the spring contracted causing the choke to go on or off but i would bet its the auto choke

These cars are notorious for intake manifold leaks. This could also be a throttle position sensor. If you have a MIL (check engine light) I would scan it with an OBD II scanner and pull the relevent code off the scanner it will give us a much more accurate direction to proceed
