Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Mirage DE, and for a while i haven't had the same power as before. I can press all the way down on the gas pedal and it takes a while just to get to 40. It is the worse when I am at a red light and try to accelerate. I have had 3 different technicians look at it and the problem doesn't seem to fix. When the AC is on, I have to turn it off just to get some type of acceleration. Thoughts?

Why does my 98 Mitsubishi mirage DE smell like gas after i changed the spark plug wires?


After you changed ONLY spark plug wires?

I would say you failed to mark them before
you took them off & make a diagram or have
reference material & you put the wires on wrong
& now you have cylinder misfires & unburnt fuel
out the exhaust

My horn doesnt work in my 1998 mitsubishi mirage how can i fix it


have you checked all fuses and relays? if they r all good then you need to see if there is power to the horn by using a test light. this takes two people to do one to hold test light to horn wire one to press horn. horn is located behind front bumper. if you have power then replace the horn if no power then you have a blown fuse or bad relay or bad horn button in steering wheel.
