Engine Performance problem
1989 Other Mitsubishi Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 190000 miles
1989, mirage, 1.5 liter
k this is a car my dad just gave me, it starts no problem, but it stuters and has little power from a stop.
iv found that when I move the gas pedal the car will kinda kick in for a sec, but if I push the pedal down it just kinda boogs it does not like hills
but when I hit the sweet spot on the gas pedel the car really takes off it has great power.
this is what iv done so far, I was lucky to find a car with the same motor at the junkyard,
parts iv changed so far
1, mass air flow (that thing in the airfilter)
2, tps sen, (i had tried moveing this thing like a 100 times it has an effect but is not changing the problem).
3, power transiter, (or power diode, its found just above the valve cover).
3, cap, rotor, coil, capasitor, coil wire.
no real change,
I will fix this car one way or the other :)
(maybe a fuel problem? ) Aargg!
have the same problem?
