Question about 1988 Mitsubishi Pickup
I have a Mitsubishi Triton V6 (1997) and when i first start the engine and pull away it lacks power on the acceleration. This seems to last for a few minutes or so until it warms up. If i warm the engine up before pulling away, i don't seem to notice the issue. If i leave the ute parked for more than 30 minutes, i have the same issue. It also seems to be worse if it is colder and as a result of the cold i have to rev the engine for about a minute in order for it to idle.
Full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....
