    i have fire on my 1993 stealth but it will not start, what do i do? and what is the emc

    I have a 93 Stealth, it seems after any moisture, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes of cranking the engine to start. I replace the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, and had a mechanic replace the distributor. Now it does not start at all, the mechanic powerwash the engine to simulate the conditions. They suggest a new ECM, I love this car but its becoming a money pit.

    Could it be the fuel pump, not enough pressure??? I ready don't want to put out the money for a new ECM

The easiest way to relieve the fuel pressure is to start your engine and pull the Fuel Pump Relay - car should die. Now there is no fuel pressure. Turn the key to the off position and change out the fuel filter. Once the filter is changed, put the relay back in and prime the system - turn the key on (don't start) for a few seconds. Turn off, turn key on for a few seconds then start the car. Check for leaks by filter. Easy peasy. Hope this was helpful :-)

93 dodge spirit won't start

if the engine turns over then check for spark at the plugs. if this is good then check for fuel pressure with a gage. if the pressure is not right the car won`t start. you could have a plugged fuel filter.

My money says it is the ECU (engine control unit) early 90's Mitsubishi's are known for poor capacitors in their ECUs. If the car is not starting, if it has spark but no fuel my first money is that of the ECU. If it has fuel but no spark I expect something within the electronics.

Is this engine the SOHC or DOHC.

If you need to replace the ECU there is a MD number you need to use to match the proper unit. The ECU is located under the stereo, remove the two interior flaps (carpet strips) that cover the shifter are. The ECU has 3 large electical plugs, remove these and unbolt the (3) 10MM bolts to get the ECU out

I have owned and replace three Mitsubishi veichles with bad ECU, one of which is my son's 93 Dodge Stealth with 3.0 SOHC.

Please let me know if this had assisted you.

Always check for spark and fuel wgrn trying to diagnose a no-start. Check for fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. Look up the recommended fuel pressure for your vehicle. If It's in range then fuel filter probably good. Check for spark by unhooking a wire at spark plug and connecting it to a spark tester and have someone try to start while you watch for spark.

93 dodge stealth sohc ran fine one day then wouldnt start

first you must determine if it has fire, and fuel pressure if so then injector pulse. Any OBD codes???? you really need a scanner to go any further without guessing.
