Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Lancer
My Mitsubishi Lancer 1.5 lt is losing power when under load I have replaced the spark plugs and checked the HT leads it powers up around 3000 rpm but down low has no power could it be the coil? I am open to all suggestions .
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!

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.

YOUR CAR ONLY HAS COIL PACKS. CHECK VOLTAGE AT HARNNESS, IF OK REMOVE COIL PACK FROM SPARK PLUG REMOVE BOOT CHECK FOR VOLTAGE THERE, IF NONE POSS. COIL PACK.
