Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

1992 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR,4g93t engine,1.8 Dohc turbo,cd5a chassis

Hi
Having starting problems with my lancer, at first I thought it was a starter motor problem as I was having prior problems when car was warm or had stalled then it would not starter until car was abit cooler. Now my car cranks over but doesn't fully start, when it does bite, it doesn't idle long & it sounds like a helicopter & then it back fires. My car is running rich and has a Sard race fuel pressure regulator which is reading 40psi, is this normal? would this be a fuel filter/fuel pump problem? Any advice would be much appreciated.

I have the exact same problem of not starting even though turning over. I have a cc with a 4g93T, check everything from ignition, compression, IAC motor, plug gap, wiring and plug lead resistance & fuel pressure and FPR to no avail. Had an autosparkie go over it and it had him stuffed. He asked me where the ECU is and to give it a hard tap sorta like the amount you hate it not starting. Closer inspection of ECU numbers informed me it was incorrect. First bet: give it a hard tap and try start or have a look at a new EMS if you have the coin. Or mitsi wreckers may help in the hunt.

it could be your ignition leads or the spark plugs. check them and buy some new spark plugs because if the gap isnt right then it can have trouble when idling or pulling away.

If this does not work it could be dirty fuel injectors or fuel system.

first thing to do is remove spark plugs and if they smell really fuely you will need to change them if that doesnt help you will need to get the microtech tuned for a good coldstart , this depends on if its running stand alone or as a piggy back
cheers.

Hi Thomas, sounds as if the starter motor is 'dragging' Basically that means either the bushes or brushes are worn or something else in the starter motor is causing the drag. I think the problem is in the unit giving the problem. Regards Johngee

Sounds like the starter solenoid or starter motor not engageing. Remove the complete starter motor assembly and take it to a shop to have it tested. Also when you remove the starter from engine look at the flywheel teeth to see if they are sheared off causing a no start condition. Hope this will help you.

Battery is strong. no prior problems. no click, no


Corroded battery terminals, perhaps. Clean them and reattach. Could also be a bad starter or a bad starter relay.
