Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage

1 Answer

My 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5L just died in an intersection, without notice. It has no spark at the spark plugs. I am trying to test the distributor. First I need to remove the electrical connector to check the resistance, according to Chilton. However, I can't get the electrical connector off, and am worried I will break it. Any suggestions for a different way to test it or how to get the connector off without breaking it? Thank you! Joshua

Before you go any further
pull the oil filler cap from the rocker cover and see if the cam shaft and rockers are moving when you are cranking it over
suspect a broken timing belt as that will not allow any spark

Check the contact breaker is opening. Check continuity to the coil, and make sure the distributor contacts and rotor arm are clean.

They should be able to do that. Give them the yr , make, model, enginesize and you mention the rotor cams. I've never heard that term except when speaking of point type ignitions.. Is this a point type? Do not be concerned about pulling the old one unless you need the car. Then, take the car to them and you can do your comparisons ther at the store, Good Luck What is your concern about pulling it out? -Ned

I'm assuming that both planetary shafts - the ones that connect the differential on the gearbox to the wheels - are intact and working correctly. If you need to check them just put the gearbox in Park, lift one of the front wheels and try to turn it - it shouldn't move.
Then the transmission has failed completely. The only thing you can check without dismantling the entire gearbox is the level of the transmission oil and its status - you will probably have to replace it and its filter. If the oil is ok then a visit to a repair shop will be mandatory and expensive. Replacing the entire gearbox with a second-hand one from a breakers yard will be cheaper than fixing it.

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.


It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.
