Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Mitsubishi 2.4l intermittent stall

I will try to be brief. Bought car a few years back and had some preventive maintenance done to it. Both timing belts will replace as well as all the components within the timing plus water pump and crankshaft positioning sensor. Fast forward a few years. Has been intermittently cutting out going down the road just like somebody turn the key. Has started back up every time except for once a few days ago. Had to let it sit for about 15 minutes. Did start with check engine light. Code is for crankshaft positioning sensor circuit a. Runs normal even with a check engine light on. Sometimes it does it once or twice a week or 100s of miles in between episodes....thoughts?

How about checking the sensor and circuit

Posted on Oct 25, 2021

Testimonial: "Thank you for the reply. The sensor itself is really hard to get to being as it is behind the lower timing belt cover and we'll have to take numerous items to part to physically check the sensor itself. I'm not sure how to check the connector up by the top of the motor though"

Ever had someone guess for you over the
phone or on the internet at what is wrong
with your car or any product?

How would someone do that without the car
to talk to you the driver,road test with professional
tools.look at data & component test with or without codes

I can't imagine how long or how many times you would wait
an hour before you could start your car before you would drive
or tow it to shop & end that misery

It is not the injectors

I would say the fuel pump is or has failed
But again,you shouldn't take anyone's guess

You have to have the vehicle tested
The fuel system can be tested in about 8 different ways

You could have several problems & if you only drive the car
& never work on it a few times a year I'm sure that is the case

It needs lots of testing & lots of thing done to it

You injectors are 14 years old

The only way to clean them is to remove them & mail away
for Ultra-Sonic Cleaning

No fuel tank additive or on car cleaning will help an injector
in service for 14 years

I could spend see you spend two thousand easily,just to catch
up on Preventative Maintenance,given you made no mention
of the vehicle history,past problems,repairs,etc

2001 lincoln town car

Checked for OBD Codes?
Done any Preventative Maintenance?
Any testing at all,so we can guess at it?
Looked at any data when it stalls (Freeze Frame Data)

Idle is rough

Spark Plugs have to be changed every 3 years
Front Oxygen Sensors changed every 100,000 miles
Can't have any Vacuum Leaks -- anywhere on the vehicle
Need to have it road tested with a Professional Scan Tool
& look at all data & get caught up on Preventative Maintenance
Very few people change motor oil 3 or 4 times a year, if at all,
and the Variable Cam Actuators fail, as a result,that & few other
things can cause rough running engine & resulting idle issues
It's well known that Ford COP Ignition Coils fail sometime in
every year of ownership

When do i need to get maintenance on my 2007 mitsubishi galant?

Every week its a good idea to check tire and oil pressure, wiper fluid, coolant, the usual's. Oil changes every 3-5 months, and check-ups at least yearly with your dealer. If you bought it new, the dealer often supplies a maintenance package for the first few years.

I also have a Mitsubishi Eclipse (1999 2.0 L) that stalls intermittently when I come to a stop. It might run for a week with no problem, then do it again. It's an automatic transmission. At a stoplight rpm...

My 97 had intermittent starting problems. It never died while running but give this a try... The next time it won't start, remove the bottom of the back seat and turn the ignition on without cranking the engine. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds and then turn off. If you don't hear it run, it could be a problem with the fuel pump relay. There are two relays that are part of the system and they are located in the engine compartment on the firewall next to the master cylinder. I replaced the cheaper of the two and that fixed it.

1998 Volvo S70 stalls intermittently

Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.
