My 1996 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5L is giving me a hard time to fix it. I recently changed the head gasket and valve cover seal. After I finished adjusting the timing from the distrubutor the car sounded a little reved up than before. The car would idle, but rev up and back down and sometimes stay reved for a few minutes. I drove it for about two days and it all the sudden shut off on the highway. I tried cranking back up and it wouldn't do anything except turn the starter. I have checked the ignition coil in the distributor and it is good. I narrowed it down to the wiring because when I hooked the scanner to the car and it read linkage error. I hooked a different scanner to it and it did the same thing. I finally disconnected the ECM wiring one by one and spray it with contact oil, then reconnected them, but no luck after that. Please I need your guidance Car Pros!
have the same problem?
