The 1.5L was never a power house, but the first checks should be
* check if the ECU is throwing an error code. If so this is a vital clue.
* verify the cam belt alignment. This can slip a few teeth and cause all sorts of problems
* verify the timing (assuming your 98 has a distributor or cam position sensor adjustment)
* Pull the injectors and soak them in injector cleaner.
* clean or replace the air filter.
* Check the coolant temp sensor (on the thermostat housing) does not have damaged wires. This sensor is vital for the ECU to decide what timing and mixture is needed.

If i'm not mistaken the light beside the battery sign is the check engine light. this lights up if anything under the hood is not functioning the way it should. Unfortunately i cannot be more specific on this. It just means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your gas cap could be too loose (no kidding).

Well as you've mention your oil is dropping at a very fast rate then its a good place to start checking. You can check if your oil seals are ok and might as well check all the filters...oil filters, fule filters air filters.

Hope i have answered your question. Goodluck!

basic rules.

1 remove the cable.
2. use the right size socket and insert it to the plug.
3. loosen the plug and clean or replace.
4. tighten it back.
5. do it one at a time. it would be confusing to install the wires back if you pull them at the same time.

tnx 4 using fixya and tnx 4 asking,

This could be just a problem with the ignition. Check if all the plugs are getting sparks by pulling one at a time the hi tension wire that covers the spark plugs while the engine is running. Check also the rubber plug, the hi tension wire itself. If all checks out you may want to inspect the ignition coil and the fuel filter if it needs replacing.

First thing I would check is that all of the plugs are still tight. This is a common problem of them coming loose without the proper torque.

Spark plug gap for 1990 Mitsubishi Lancer


hi, in the american database for alldata, there is no lancer in 1990, if your engine is dohc, or sohc though, i checked 2.0 and 1.8, both are 1.0mm - 1.1mm gap. shouldn't be any problem running at these gaps, most every mitsubishi engine runs at this spark plug gap.

1994 1.8 CC lancer has no spark Primary and secondary coils checked out ok Transistor checked out ok has power to coils when key is on Should spark????


So you're getting voltage to positive side of coils, but no spark at plugs? If you were to take the coil plug wire and hold it about 1/4 inch from engine ground do you get spark? (Use well insulated handles, don't touch metal) If yes, maybe plug wires, if no, does it have a control module? I'm not familiar with Mitsubishi, I've worked mostly on American cars.

so u have a CH/CG lancer

you would need to remove the two 10mm bolts from the coil packs and leads and then stick the smaller version of spark plug socket in remove them, bear in mind if u have a mivec motor the spark plugs MUST be Platinum :)
