I would have the car plugged into a scan tool and check the data screen for the coolant temp sensor to see what it's reading.The sensor should be reading around the same temp.as out side the car when the car is cold or same temp as the temp gauge if the car is warm.If it's reading way too cool it is mostlikely your problem giving it way to much fuel.

I have a 1999 mitsubishi chariot gdi,the car revs even when idle what could be the problem?


The problem could be a bad throttle position sensor or a bad idle air control valve.I would remove them and test them for proper operation .These test s should be done by your local service station because every car has a different procedure for testing these sensors.Any of the sensors on your car can be tested but like I stated they all have different procedures.

On a cold start my 2002 estate 2.4 gdi missfires.


Since you vehicle is 7 years old. The temperature is due for a change.

the temp sensor give the exact engine block temperature information to the computer (ECU).

An old sensor or sensor giving incorrect temp to the ECU will cause this problem.

The correct term is call close loop. When the engine at start up the computer will only count on the temp sensor to report temp.

When temp is reaching 195F,the mode change to open loop. All sensors comes into play and at the point the fuel inject will scale down for the warm up state.

Running rich condition can be cause by an old temp. sensor.

Change the sensor and the RICH condition after warm up will go away.

Mitsubishi chariot gdi


Hi, I have a Mitsubishi Chariot Grandis Exceed 1998 (4g64) and recently changed the engine. Prior to changing the engine the car had a shudder when driving approximately 70kmph. This appears to be caused by some sort of misfire as one can see the ref counter dropping and picking up slowly. After changing the engine I still have exactly the same problem which tells me it is not the engine. I took it in and they tested it with one of those plug in machines but to no avail as it did not pick up any faults. Due to the slight drop of the needle prior to the car shuddering, I cleaned out the injectors but this does not appear to be a part of the problem. This usually occurs more often when the engine is warmer and not when one start up and drive. Any ideas what can cause this?
