Question about Mitsubishi Colt
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

Tips for a great answer:
Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
