Question about Mitsubishi Lancer
Throttle position sensor bad,or catylitic converter plugged, which will get very hot and hiss as the exhaust gases trying to escape. Could also be a speed sensor. Check engine codes. A 5.00 device is available on Ebay which gives you a tester for your bluetooth laptop or Android phone. IT's ELM 327 device. or goto www.kijiji.com and find local mechanic to test codes for say 10 bucks. rather than 90 at a dealer.

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

You're not getting enough fuel. You should check your fuel pressure. If you have enough fuel pressure, your injectors are probably clogged up. Run a lot of fuel cleaner through your tank when you put gas in and see if it makes any difference. Lucas fuel treatment is the best to use.

SOURCE: idles but no acceleration?
Their are a few things that would cause that to happen. Check your plug wires to be sure they are on tight. If you havn't had a tune up in a while I would definately replace the wires and spark plugs. Both are things that cause those problems. I don't what you are driving but if it is newer you also might have a bad ignition module. If you have no distributor then you will have those instead. Their also is the possibility of the timing being off. While this tends not to happen by itself it could happen if your timing belt needs to be replaced. When the belt strecthes over time and use it can cause to throw the timing off. I hope this helped you out. It woulod be appreciatted if you could rate my answer. Thanks, MIKE-
