Question about Mitsubishi Outlander
I have a 98 mk triton 3.0 V6. under full acceleration it drops a cylinder and hesitates. it doesnt do it if i accelerate slowly. im thinking that its not plugs or leads because it doesnt do it all the time. pls help

"initial acceleration", meaning in the morning when you start it up or when youre at a stop light and you go to floor it after the vehicle is warmed up?
a few things to check out:
fuel injectors, fuel in the tank, and fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump. low fuel pressure can cause bad acceleration
ignition cables (plug wires), plugs, coils, etc.
is your check engine light on? if so you either have a bad sensor or a bad actuator to the pcm (powertrain control module) THAT will definantly cause it. it will ignore all sensors if it goes into open loop and it will **** more fuel and it wont perform.
if the check engine light is on, take it to a place with free scan tool readings. autozone has this. they will probably tell you its an O2 sensor (oxygen sensor) problem if theres any mixture issues at all. dont always believe the scan tool reading there, just use it to point you in the right direction. its somewhat accurate for most other things, but O2 sensors very seldom actually go bad. its basically shooting the messenger.

you can try changing the ignition coil, I own a 97 Dodge 1500 and mine did the same and thats what i had to do.
