Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Mirage
Can get started and by keeping the revs up it sounds ok, but when I back off the accelerator it dies. Have even tried taking it for a drive till it gets to temp. Drives fine until I get to an intersection, but still will not idle when stopped. (in either drive or park)
Had that problem on my camaro. turned out to be a crank sensor on mine. also theres a small actuating valve on the intake i dont remember the name of it now but that could cause the same thing to happen if it gets carbon built up in it.and it is a cheaper fix than my crank sensor ..id check that first

Testimonial: "It's the fuel pump indeed. Also the gas tank found to be very dirty. The fuel pump was replaced, fuel system cleaned, now the car runs perfectly."
This is caused by a loose plate or plate retaining screw outside the throttle body. There is a mounting screw in the bottom of the throttle body that holds an adjustment plate. the screw ussually gets loose and needs to be retighten due to vacuum loss thru the head of that bold. It simply needs to be retighten. IT IS VERY HARD TO REACH THIS BOLT and does not have much room. Patience is a virtue here.

I have a 1994 1.5 litre Mitsubishi Lancer with a 12 valve engine. Located to the right of the rocker cover is the distributor and coil assembly. I have to replace the coil because the old one died. I can remove everything with ease except for a small spring loaded plate that appears to have been pressed onto the shaft. How can I remove that plate without damaging the shaft so that I can replace the coil?

the next thing to check is the fuel system.
is there fuel in the system, the tank, fuel lines. is there fuel pressure at the injectors? check the fuel pump electrical system, the fuse, fuel pump relay, fuel cut off circuit. some factory security system have a fuel inhibitor, that disable the fuel pump circuit!
