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?
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.

had that problem on my camaro. turned out to be a crank sensor on mine. also theres a small actuating valve on the intake i dont remember the name of it now but that could cause the same thing to happen if it gets carbon built up in it.and it is a cheaper fix than my crank sensor ..id check that first
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.
As far as i know, original stock carburetor for Lancer 1989-1992 engine 4G15 12 valve is Aisan Variable Venturi. It have 3 screws : - air-fuel mixture screw - main jet adjusting screw - idle adjusting screw

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?
