Mitsubishi Repair & Maintenance Questions? Ask a Mechanic Online
It runs well. I was on a long trip with a heavy load and the engine was running above the normal temp.( not overheating or any alarms). I stopped the car, let it cool down and replaced the coolant .It did not happen again. Shortly after that the problem started with the throttle.
Did you get my reply?
Sorry to ask you again , I have communication issues on this side of the world, but I need to know if you are getting my emails?
What do you mean by the throttle? Is it the mechanism by the pedal or the Butterfly(throttle body) at the intake?
I cleaned the throttle body , not too dirty.
Still the same.
The engine idles good when it is cold but once it gets to working temp (+/- 80 c) it cuts out when in idle.
At speed the car runs perfect.
What is next?
Yes , I use to get about 10km/ Litre. Now I am down 7km/Litre. I assumed it had to do with the load I had on the car.
No, I don't. Will it help if I just clean the MAF? Where can I look for the air leaks?
I found the problem. The TPS was faulty .I am still not sure why it packed up but it is working now.
Thank You for Your help.
