2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Stop Light Switch, How to replace the part?

2005 Mitsubishi... | Answered on Aug 21, 2018

When you start the Lancer, does it actually turn over and start? Or does it sputter while you're pressing the start button?

This is what I would start with. First, I'd find your fuel regulator and follow the vacuum line that leads to the engine - then unplug that. Find some extra tubing or rag that you can replace that plug with to keep it sealed. Then, if you're car starts running, you'll know its just a bad regulator.

If that doesnt work, the second thing I'd try is pulling off the air-intake and spray some brake cleaner in there to see if it will start. If that works, then you have a fuel leak or clog somewhere thats preventing your fuel from reaching the sparkplugs.

Hope this helps-

The high viscosity ensures transfer of lubricant throughout the gear train. Some modern automatic trans-axles (integrated transmission and differential) do not use a heavy oil at all, but lubricate with the lower viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available within the automatic transmission.

Your vehicle has similar signs that some VW's showed in the early 2000's. Depending on where you live, here in the Midwest, we found a main wiring harness that ran under the inner edge of the driver side, under carpet was exposed to salt and water during the winter. This caused connectors to brake and cause many issues.

As for your issue, seems that all these components may be sharing the same electrical circuit and therefore not working properly.

Depends on hot you ran it. Probably blew a head gasket.

Around 60000 miles. Check with the dealer or google it.

If this is a "fly-by-wire" car, gas pedal may have failed or not be in sync with throttle. This can happen when throttle gets dirty and sticks part way open. If not FBW car, insure gas pedal is operating throttle body blade.
