Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer

1 Answer

Stalling when comming to a stop.

It's got 232 000km but my battery died on me so I bought a new one and installed it. Started fine but when I came to a stop it stalled on me. My mechanic said that the sensors were used to not having enough power running through them so now with the new battery the sensors arn't working like they should with more power.

Is this true or can it be something else?

No, this would not be the case, but the sensors may be old, so get them replaced and make sure the battery connectors aren't old and corroded, also since there are so many miles on this car, check out the alternator and see if you need a new one.

hope this helps :)

71 c10 not staying charged... new battery alternator fuses good and new voltage regulator


Maybe it wasn't running long enough to charge up the battery?
Stop trying to jump it, when you are having problems with it dying, take the battery off and have it charged. And/or buy a $20 voltmeter to see what the battery shows. If it says less than 12 volts, it is discharged, and needs charging. A good battery that is not run down should have at least 12.5 volts. A new battery that is charged should have very close to 13 volts, maybe 12.8 volts.
When you have the truck running, check the alternator for charging. You put the voltmeter right on the battery and check it again. This time, with truck running, battery should show at least 13.5 volts. That shows the alternator is working. A good alternator will put out about 13 or 14 volts-the regulator will keep it from going any higher to prevent problems, like a melting battery or electrical parts burning out.
I would say get the charging system working right, then address the problem of dying at stop lights. That could be a carburetor problem, if the alternator is working.

Iwas driving my 1999 alero n it studdered for a second. I gave it some gas nand managed to drive one block before it died. I tried to start it but it won't start it turned over but that is all it did


Look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY after it doesn't start. These cars and many more GM's have had problems with the antitheft system. Parts in the system tend to fail and cause this "no start" situation. Symptoms range from stalling while driving, to starting for 1-5 seconds and then stalling. This link might help you if this ends up being your problem.

2004 VW New Beetle Stalling


Check the oil level to make sure you have sufficient oil in the crankcase, and that it's not burnt. Also check the level of the antifreeze/coolant in the cooling system. Low levels can cause the car to shut down. Alway look at the cheaper easy to solve problems, then move to the more complicated.
