Question about Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

Mitsubishi lancer 1995 surginglancer coupe with the 1.5L carby. I have an intermittent problem that around 2800rpm the engine will surge violently thus jerking the car back and forth. When this happens, i can put it in neutral and hold the throttle constant at this point and the engine will rev up and down for a bit then finally returns to normal revving. It seems to happen when the car is hot or cold, but I think if I warm up the car before going for a drive it doesn't happen. Any suggestions would be great I have been to some mechanics and a dealer but they either couldn't reproduce the problem or didn't know what to do.

Is the check engine light on?

A major cause of surging is either air leaks between the air flow meter and the engine intake manifold, or a bad or mis-adjusted throttle position sensor.
