Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
What's the issue you are having?
So it runs fine now right? I mean it sounds to me like it might have been flooded, usually when a car is stalling and then you let it sit for a while and it starts up fine its because it was flooded. Letting it sit lets the fuel run down into the crankcase and out of the cylinders. That would be my guess.
Have you made sure that there are no vacuum lines unhooked anywhere? Also, did you replace the intake manifold gaskets?
The only thing to do if you are positive that the firing order is correct and there are no leaks is just triple check that everything is plugged in and connected tightly. I know you said that you already did but if it was running before something has to be missing since it is not running now
I have seen so many times just a small ground or some tiny connector that I missed and the car won't run. Just have to be sure, follow the harness and make sure everything is connected tightly
OK sounds good.
Alright, not sure I can help you any longer so I'm gonna open this up to other experts.
Hi,When the engine is started now, apart from the dying does it feel relatively normal prior to the stalling? Like it does not feel as if it is running on 4 cylinders or anything like that right?
If it does seem to run OK apart from the stalling, was the throttle cleaned after the job? This is required any time you have the power disconnected to the engine else you will end up with rough idle/stalling.
And if you give it just slight application of the throttle, does it remain running and seem normal (like all six cylinders are firing)?
