Question about 1988 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

Open Question

We just bought a 88 mighty max and it worked great at first, but then about 5 miles up the street it just stalled. Is there a common problem in these vehicles? I am hoping it is something easy to fix because we would like to restore it... Please Help! We were also wondering what the truck is supposed to look like, color, etc... we would like to restore it to what it is supposed to look like, instead of painting it something random. Thanks!

My sons 88 Mighty max runs terrible at about 35 mph and up. Seems to run betterhe air temp is cooler, like 60's and lower. We replaced plugs/wires, cap/rotor, fuel pump, air/fuel filters, some que


Air is more dense at lower temperatures so the cylinders fill better and there is some evidence increased humidity also helps engines to run better.

Replacing stuff in the vague hope it will provide a cure can be expensive and very frustrating and is no substitute for proper checks and replacing only what proves to be faulty.

New plugs won't improve matters if the spark is really weak and a new fuel pump is really money down the drain if the pressure regulator is faulty or the injectors aren't spraying properly or the carb has some blocked jets or if the oxygen sensor is sending the wrong information...

It is best practice to always start with the basics - engine condition, timing, compressions, cylinder leakage and so forth. Your description indicates the engine is short of fuel or fuel that it can use but could equally be caused by a restricted exhaust. I once had a car just like that and it was a worn exhaust cam lobe that was causing the trouble.

Will a chevy s-10 motor work in a 85 mitsubishi mighty max


Not without using the chevy transmission (and transfer case if it's a 4WD Mighty Max), Custom Motor Mounts, Custom Transmission Mount, Wiring Modifications, Driveshaft Modifications (either lengthened or shortened, depending on where the transmission or transfer case is located). Possibly shifter hole modifications (if it's a 5-Speed Manual), or Custom Linkage/Linkage Modifications (If it's an Automatic)

you have water/coolant entering the combustion chamber. either the head is cracked or you have blown a head gasket.
