    there is only one egr valve.there are over 100 vacuum lines,but if you look at the exhaust manifold,there will be a 3/4 inch diameter tube that goes to a 2 1/2 inch diameter egr valve near the back of the engine.

Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

This doesn't sound like an alternator problem at all, It sounds like an EGR issue or vapor lock issue.

Engine Light goes on then clicking under dashboard -- engine stalls


could simply be your battery is about to die and the voltage is getting too low.
if the engine light is going on then take it to a mitsubishi dealer and they can read the stored error code.

The 1st thing to do is have a trouble code retrieval test run to see what is making the check engine light come, this is the source of the problem.

I think you may have either a battery cable issue or more likely a ignition switch problem, most Japanese cars use the same design switch and I have seen the issue on other cars.

2002ford truck explorer when i frist start my truck it will stall out a few times then wiil run good for awhile then for some reason stall out 3 or 4 times some times i can drive for 150 miles with no...


it sounds to me that you idle controll valve isnt responding (could be dirty) get a can of carb cleaner and clean the thottle body inside and with the engine running. squirt just a little and the engine will start to stall and the idle air controll will start to open ( you will hear it start sucking) then spray more in sperts try to keep the engine running at idle . this will make the engine RPM's change and open and close the idle controll valve thus cleaning it. when done save some carb spray. put the air cleaner hose back on. and start the engine and with the engine idling spray around the intake and base of throttle body if the rpms change you have a vaccume leak than will need to be repaired.
good luck
