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.

No it wont run it ran before putting new plugs and wires in now if you start it up itl just idle out and turn off if i was to drive my car id have to come to a red light or stop sign put it in nuetral tap the gas pedal so it dosent die and then put it in drive. But i havent done that bcuz i know thatl be bad on the engine it is an automatic too

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

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.

Its a v6 when u start it itl just idle n die turn the key 5 seconds later it dies
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Doug, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

And if you give it just slight application of the throttle, does it remain running and seem normal (like all six cylinders are firing)?
