Question about 1994 Mitsubishi Mirage

My 1994 Mitsubishi Lancer (4g15) engine stops

My 1994 Mitsubishi Mirage (4g15) engine stops running while driving, then when you crank it, will start again. It happens repeatedly. I had my gas tank cleaned, fuel filter and spark plug wires replaced. What else can possibly be broken?

    Sorry for late reply. Had busy week and not able to open e-mail.

    I don’t know the tool I could use to answer to your clarification request, so I used instead this tool for posting of solutions.

    The "check engine" does not light. The problem started 10 days ago. The first time it happened, I was able to restart it easily and drive it home.

    My home is just 1.8 km away from office, so it doesn’t happen daily. I think when I drive around 8 km and more, that's the time it happens. The latest it occurred, It restart easily but I'm not able to run meters before it died again (tried & happened twice). I had to rest it for around 5 minutes before I was able to drive it home for around 5 kilometers.

    Is the check engine light on? Does it do it all the time, or just when it starts the problem, it keeps happening for a bit?

Fuel pump

Testimonial: "It's the fuel pump indeed. Also the gas tank found to be very dirty. The fuel pump was replaced, fuel system cleaned, now the car runs perfectly."

This is exactly what happened to my 1996 proton wira (4g15) last month. I had the fuel pump, fuel filter, and spark plugs replaced and the entire electrical system checked.

Now it runs faster and stronger but I notice a sudden change--it has started to consume fuel at a much greater rate than it had before the fuel system repair. I'm wondering whether this is normal or some other problems were overlooked.

If the coil packs are getting hot from the manifold, this could cause this, but I would think that a code would be displayed. Also, as as Gangster24 mentioned, the fuel pressure regulator could be going south. It is more likely to be heat transfer to electrical components, Ecu going out, coil packs, ect. But these all should throw a code.

1) Warm up engine first(run 5-10 mins)

2)Shut off engine

3) Back out on the idle speed screw until it justt doesn\'t touch the throttle linkage. Then screw it in back about 11 turns

4) Screw in the A/F mixture screw until it stops(do not force tighten)

5) Screw out the A/F mixture screw 2 full turns

6) Start the car. It will run like its choking. As long as it\'s running it\'s ok.

7) Now turn in the A/F screw until engine dies. If this happens, turn
out the A.F screw half turn at a time to bring it back. (try to start
the car of coz)

8)Continue to turn out the A/F screw at half turns every 3 seconds.
Engine will pick up speed. Continue to screw out until the point engine
runs worse. When that happens screw back in half turn every 3 secs to
the point engine runs smoothest.(do this by ear or watch engine
vibration)

9) Now set the idle speed. Go on the air conditioner. Watch the
tachometer. Turn in the idle speed screw until rpm is around 900 to 1000
rpm.

10) Now it\'s ready to rumble..

By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?
