I just bought my Mitsubishi Diamante 1999, 88000 miles. The car runs fine. But after the first rain I had trouble to start up the car. Then when I finally started the rpm was jumping from 300 to 2000. The car died. When I came back in one hour the car starts like nothing was wrong before. When the car is hot if I turn the engine off for about 15 min the rmp jumps from 300 to 1500 until I push the gas pedal a few times. I had a full tune up done but this did not eliminate the problem. The check engine appeared once. I had the car checked and first mechanic affirmed that it is the airflow sensor the second - that is misfire on random cylinders. So it can be everything. After all I am reading in the net it may be the fuel filter which I didn’t change yet. ( The dealer estimated 128$ labor only)
Please help me out I’ve spent 700$ on tune-up and check-ups already. I cannot afford to spend more money to find unknown problems.
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
