Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
I replaced battery and put can of heet in gas tank just in case of condensation. Car will start for a few seconds ,after spraying starter fluid in intake, but dies as soon as that is burned up. Then just turns over but wont start. What else should i check?
Sounds like you have spark and no fuel.
Could be bad gas, sludge in the fuel line or injectors, or a failed fuel pump.
If you check fuel pressure with a gauge and it is normal, you may need to drain the tank and clean out the injectors.
Gasoline turns to shellac after several months, which acts like varnish.
