Question about Mitsubishi Colt

1 Answer

Stalling without warning

My 1983 RB 1400 Colt, is generally running fine at idle and fast driving.
But sometimes when i am pulling away from traffic lights at times there seems to be a splutter or blind spot in the fuel supply.
My mechanic has changed Filters, Points, Plugs and timing belt, but the problem seems to be getting more frequent. He suggests i get a new car, but i love this one and in spite of its age its in good condition and there is a genuine only 61,000km on the clock.
Thanks for any help....Jas

I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

Car stalls after check engine and esp lights turn on


Sometimes the issue is with the mechanical vacuum pump off to the side of the ABS/ESP module. It looks like a round silver canister. This issue is all over Google with many possibilities but the one I copied is most common.

Bmw 325i 2003 stall


Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

This problem apears when the battery has been diconected for some time. Start the car, and leave in in idle without driving it for about 10 min. The car runs fine after that.

Mine was doing the sme thing-run fine then stall. restart in a few minutes and run fine for a while then shutdown. some times give codes o3oo, 1781 and 0700 but not always.
I installed a new crankshaft sensor and it solved the problem!
