Eclipse: mitsu..The check engine light came on, the car was stalling…

Customer Question
I have 2001 mitsu eclipse...
I have 2001 mitsu eclipse with a 4g64. The check engine light came on, the car was stalling. the codes i got were 1090 and 821 (no letter before them). These are not generic OBD2 codes, why would an OBD2 system give me codes not in OBD2 format? what do these codes mean?

sometimes it stalls. I think it is a software problem with my scanner, i have used it before to pull OBD2 Generic codes before, but this is twice i got a non - obd 2 code from a mitsu.
Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok it must be your scanner . Can you get it scanned at auto zone they scan it for free. Once we have the correct codes we can diagnose it properly.
