2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Misfire

Showing 7 out of 22 Posts | Show 15 Hidden Posts
Question From Marco90 on 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Misfire

Hello,

I have a Mitsubishi Lancer which occasionally has misfires in cilinder 3, fault code P0303.
The engine starts running very rough for 10 to 20 seconds and then it starts running fine like nothing is wrong.

I've replaced the sparkplugs, spark plug wires and igintion coils, but this did not fix the problem.

Info about the car:
2004
Mitsubishi
Lancer (station)
2.0L 135bhp
Engine type: 4G63 DOHC
267.000 km
Fuel system: LPG

Response From Hammer Time

I doubt a compression problem would be intermittent like this. Check all your wiring connections and wiring harness. Look around for any burnt spots in the harness where it could be shorting. Tug on the wires when this is happening and see if it changes anything.

Response From Marco90

I doubt a compression problem would be intermittent like this. Check all your wiring connections and wiring harness. Look around for any burnt spots in the harness where it could be shorting. Tug on the wires when this is happening and see if it changes anything.

That's also what I was thinking, but I will do a compression test just to be sure. Will report results this weekend or the start of next week.

Which wires would you recommend to be checked?
The iginiton system on my car has two ignition coils.
One on cilinder 2 and one on clinder 4.
Cilinder 3 is connected to iginition coil on 2 and cilinder 1 to ignition coil on 4.
I would say that if one of the two connections to either ignition coil is giving trouble, this should relate to 2 cilinders instead of 1.

Response From Hammer Time

Yes, that would be correct but you can't rely on the monitors to report it correctly.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

? LPG or "gasoline" does this for the first seconds of a cold start - right? Liquid fuel would need to be delivered richer but don't think LPG needs that?


Triggered by spark guess I'd watch spark for the time it does this which doesn't seen too long so be ready right when expected. Compression and spark both must be OK if it runs properly (if really does) in ~20 seconds.


No, I don't know. Just would be ruling things in or out and apparently only so much time to watch for this isn't helping,


T

Response From Marco90

The car always starts on gasoline.
As soon as the engine reaches a certain temperature it switches over to LPG, but I can manually switch between both fuels.

It is impossible to check the spark on the moment that I have this problem, because it randomly occurs. If it was occuring more often I would just remove sparkplug wires one at a time when the problem occured.

I haven't found a way to manually trigger this fault, but maybe it could be something with the wiring. That is something that I will check tonight if it stays dry outside.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Wow - so its design is to always start on gasoline then switch? Fine then now you say random and want to cancel spark to see vs using an in-line spark tester just flashes as current goes thru and would maintain spark doesn't stop it.


There's some risk at just unplugging a wire as the spark as no place to go so much better if you can ground that out so it doesn't seek another item if spark present and harm it - any engine that makes spark for ignition never mind this.
Random changes the game. I thought this would dependably do this for so many seconds. What would be random is now more likely spark but was thinking compression like a valve that was leaking down but wouldn't do that so much once already stable and running maybe just on initial start.
If you wish to cancel a plug without much for tools I guess I need to suggest you shut it off quickly and ground the plug wire.


You could ground a spark tester if you wish to get one and spark would always seek easiest ground.


Other is to mist the parts lightly with tap water and look for stray arcing of spark but you've listed this as happening with both old and new items so don't expect that to help and doesn't always show anything anyway.


The in-line spark tester I'm talking about doesn't stop the spark nor adjustable to test power of a coil just show evidence. That you can also see with an induction timing light now prehistoric but would be useful.


This whole set up is new to me. How an piston engine can run is basics - any fuel requiring a spark and 4 stroke shares crude basics in common,


T

Response From Marco90

Yes, thats how all LPG systems work here in the Netherlands.

The misfiring is occasionally/random.
I see what you mean with the inline spark tester.
I don't know if there is a tester that could show the spark during a drive, but that could be handy. However, I found something else today which could explain the problem.

I found some time today to check the wiring to the ignition coils.
I've move the wires with the engine running and nothing happend, no stuttering.

Then I thought maybe the spark plug wires are not properly connected. I pushed the plug wire from ignition coil on 4 to 1 and it was good.
Next was wire on ignition coil on 2 going to 3. The moment that I tried to push it on I got a shock! I tried again, and again a shock!
So I tried the other wire again and didn't get any shock.

I don't think it should be possible to get a shock when every thing is connected properly.

The connection of this ignition coil and plug wire are very close to the head of the engine. In my opinion this could be the problem (correct me if I'm wrong). That the spark sometimes makes a short on this location (explaining the P0303 misfire on cilinder 3).

Now the question, what part is defect??
The ignition coils are new and so are the spark plug wires and the spark plugs

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Quote you ">>
I don't think it should be possible to get a shock when every thing is connected properly."
-----------------------------------------
I worry about my eyesight and reading you clearly so will ask about that. Is engine running when totally switching wires or they are connected and just pushing a wire on to see if tight while running? If engine off and a shock - that's something else.


Same wire can give you a shock on a different coil while just putting your hand on it? It really shouldn't do that suggesting YOU are an easier way for high voltage spark to go thru you than thru the spark plug.


Wire if moved and only that wire does it really blames the wire/boot itself not other things if all else equal. Could be new or not wires and insulation of high voltage items can be broken or defective.


Again if it's always following just that wire it really has to be the wire.


Hey! That voltage really shouldn't harm you but can be very dangerous. Several concerns only about one funny. If you have any predisposition for heart issues it could be deadly serious. IMO and experience it's the "surprise" factor mostly not so much physical damage to you but avoid it always.


The funny is at least I think (well lived this long and shocked a zillion times) the surprise and hitting your head on an open hood, drop a tool that hits a fan and goes flying always where it will take a day to find it if ever. It's not funny.
There are totally safe ways and could even use one of those light up in-line spark testers held close to a weak spot and grounded with everything of ignition intact would light up without shocking you if as easily as you just said it can do that,


T

Response From Marco90

The wire is connected properly.
Just by touching it you get a shock trough the rubber piece.
I found a picture of the ignition coil setup with wires.
Note: the ignition coil in the middle looks like it is connected to cilinder 3 but this should be flipped over to fit cilinder 2 and the wire should go on 3.

With engine running with everything connected properly:
Touching the part colored with red will give you a shock, touching the blue part doesn't.


Response From Tom Greenleaf

That wire and boot by description shouldn't give you a shock on one and not the other so wire is highly the reason for the shock and it misfiring.


This is high voltage low amp power to jump the gap of a spark plug which it should prefer vs you unless somehow YOU are magnetically charged to be the easier path to ground at most the slightest fuzz feel while all hooked up.


It that plug is VERY hard (even new or same results with an old one that worked or swapped and same result) to accept the spark and the power then on to ground of engine block extra verifies it's the wire/boot combo.


Please understand this electricity - all really is seeking the least "resistant" way to ground intended to jump the gap of a spark plug in this case to make spark for ignition - doesn't matter now what fuel, any fuel at all should not jump spark out with any real force. It would be cancelling the spark unseen is not firing that plug to another place or may see it.


I still want you to use all caution getting shocked by this voltage! It's quite startling spark. Enough for some people to literally change a heart beat up to fatal results! Not common for fatal but has that power.
You may have seen emergency human beings when their heart stops emergency measures using electrical pads over person's heart "shock it" to start up again - I'm serious - about the same just targeted to do just that to save a life also could confuse your own body to stop your heart - so it is really a danger to avoid.
**********************************


I'll try to post a picture of the spark tester I was talking about or a link to the picture if possible. Handy tool that is just removable wires at each end to put in line (if room allows it at all) and will flash when spark travels thru it. Looks like this.........



Another try..........

Another similar one...........

Last one not as useful but same basic idea.


Here's the link to images found if nothing shows or pictures expire..........
https://www.google.com/...24.Q7OYFW6Jkhg#imgrc=_


This method you stand back and just watch while even just cranking an engine is enough if spark is present.


All this - you've found your trouble spot. It should be replaced with new again. Abusing these high voltage parts, just tugging on them to remove or problems handling them in manufacture, shipping or by person installing them could cause them to fail.


That tool in $US is listed as low as around $10. Price for EUROs and you location would probably convert to more.


New wires with paperwork intact should be warranted for FREE replacement.


I have to let you decide on how you acquire your own parts, in person at a parts store, on line purchases or what works best for you.


Good luck. That's your problem as best as I can determine from info provided,


Tom


(edited) only the last of three pics I posted shows for me. The link shows an entire assortment of spark testing tools to scroll thru. My view will allow and show where the picture came from - personal, a parts or tool store or anywhere a picture was posted that is allowed - that varies by location also........

Response From Marco90

I didn't get shocked for fun, I know that it is a high voltage shock. Next time I will try to spray some water mist over this place, I heard that you can see the shock pass through the water mist.

Already contacted the supplier of the wire and was offered a free replacement. Luckily I kept my old wires. However, these wires also gave the same misfire on cilinder 3.
I'm thinking about replacing the wire from ignition coil on 2 to 3 with the long wire that also goes from 4 to 1, since these cilinders seem to work fine (no fault codes on these cilinders).
There is room to place the additional cable that is on it.

Do you think that this would be a good idea, until I get new wires?

Response From Hammer Time

Most likely that coil tower is cracked.

Response From Marco90

Most likely that coil tower is cracked.

I could touch the coil without any problem. Only when touching the part arched in red (previous picture) gave me a shock. With engine running.
This makes me think that the coil is ok.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

? Are you saying you already put old longer wire on and now fine for now? Sorry if misunderstood something along the way but yes coil tower if a total leak wouldn't change with a wire I would think so if it's acting all better now another new one could be it.


Got lost a bit and thought you had swapped or a new coil that didn't change the problem already - just me and didn't catch that if so.


If no shock now and running properly now your call on just tossing the coil if any suspicions left at all about it.


It's given you enough headaches and for the fix. As said, not running well isn't good for the engine or assorted emission controls down and out exhaust or the engine itself.


Sounds at least good so far - hope this will end it.


Refresh - easy handling plug wires and boots. Don't bend plug wire or pull on wire - pull on boots properly which is frequently with tools that do that with less chance of harm,


Tom

Response From Marco90

I changed the short wire with the long wire yesterday evening and didn't have time to take it for a drive.

I've driven for 40km now and haven't had the problem. However, still to early to conclude if the problem is fixed now.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

OK - Waiting but sounding good. Pic removed (got the idea anyway) pls go easy if too wide, whole thread goes too wide to read.


Pics don't always behave for me that I get off the web and could use showing some tools that really help for all this stuff. Spark plug boots for either ends can really stick and worries me that in so many the tight spaces, heat and they last longer and longer they'll just not tolerate being pulled on for checks - never liked that.


Just know - search out images of spark plug wire and boot tools. There are actually tons of assorted things. Rubber coated large tweezers things, a curled hook such that you are only pulling on boots not wire and all the assortment that protects a spark plug.


This stuff breaks easily just handling as said already. It very well could be YOU who caused this along the way and not blaming you just know stuff it there to avoid the damage. Best is never having to touch anything but impossible over time.


Testers for evidence of spark without removing anything - cool stuff if taking care of assorted things. Not all are costly at all and some are and mandatory. Just know what exists.


When you are sure 100% ready to toss the old parts for your own info, cut and use wire strippers on a plug wire. It's almost never a solid wire. Many like a carbon soaked string. You'll see that. That stuff can't be bent or moved around new and worse used is fragile. Just know that and tools to help,

Response From Tom Greenleaf

? Do you have room for the longer wire on the bad shorter one? Use it if you can now. Still get the new one. Said, wires really don't like being mishandled. Do it as anytime an engine isn't running well it's just not good for it.


Water or a mist with a pinch of salt (some) will really conduct a stray spark but still may not see it. I use store bought window cleaner most of the time because it's all around my shop. The idea is except for distilled water most will have some ohm reading thru it of some electrical passage thru water. Definitely aggravates a what I'll call a "carbon trace" of the plastic hard parts like coil towers or where found can pass voltage thru the smallest crack or pencil looking line sometimes you see.
If I read the properly which color wire and you have the old ones hope that was the longer one that was good and room for it?


No great reason to me the same old and new wire were such the likely culprit,

Response From Marco90

There is room to place the longer wire, it's not pretty but it fits.
Car starts without any problems.
Just have to drive tomorrow to see if the misfires come up again.

Seeing the spark trough the water mist could indeed be difficult, best chance to see is at night.

I also made a picture of the new ignition wires. The printing on the short wire is almost completely gone. Wires have on the car for only 17 days. Could this also be an indication of some sort?




Picture deleted .............. too large and distorting thread

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Eeek - LPG fuel. OK just no direct info specific to me on it.


If plugs, wires and coils make not difference tell me/us just how fuel is delivered - one cyl at a time or all from one source?


That or just check compression of that cylinder with a couple others - is it close to others with no problem?


T

Response From Marco90

Fuel is deliverd individually to each cilinder (there are 4 LPG injectors).
Switching to gasoline on when the engine is misfiring doesn't take away the problem. It will still go on for about the same time before returning to normal again.
This made me think that it isn't a fuel problem.

I will check compression as soon as possible, will most likely be this weekend. Would problems inside the cilinders not occur more constantly?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I have to resort to the most basic rules for an internal combustion engine operation for a 4 stroke fuel burning engine for this.


It still needs to compress the fuel in its vapor state to be useful. That's why I suggest a compression test comparison with cylinders that do work either fuel now you said. I can't know what set up was put in and alterations or if designed originally no info and zero experience by me personally.


It's lame because they are around for engines for warehouses - the public gas companies will buy up a fleet run on LNG and brag about it. I don't see those vehicles - ever.


It's all fine just need to find out why it's picking on one cylinder and compression would be first on my list in this case.


I actually bet you'll find it lower than it should be then move on to why. Save the rest of checks for your posting results.


Please do a "wet" test as well which means a squirt of oil and test the low or failed cylinder again. If that changes everything it's needed info while checking please so that.


Awaiting results of testing,


Tom

Question From chilitomio on 1995 mitsubishi montero

I am having a dilema. when driving the steering shimmies at times... I got the tires balanced now a little better but it still does it...someone told me to get shocks the other said tires. it does not do it all the time. does not matter if i hit a pot hole or smooth road it still does it....any advice??

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

For sure make sure car is safe.

My guess is a bad tire and they need be removed to really know,

Question From Louuuuu on Horn pad sticks

2003 Mitsubishi Galant

Just a Beep Beep works fine.

But if you lay on the horn for a Beeeeeeeeeeeeep, it stays on. Also, my frantic daughter came out to her car today where the horn was blowing on its own.

Seems like a horn button issue to me. But how do I fix it?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

#1 if you can find the horns unplug them and head right out to have that fixed not knowing if some alarm failure or what that has to go.


Never mind annoying everyone around and probably end up with smashed windows it would kill the battery,


T

Response From Louuuuu

I've already pulled the fuse. It's not an alarm issue. And I want to do this myself...

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Go out and price a new horm switch but don't get shocked if it comes with an air bag. many do.

Response From kev2

check the horn RELAY - try swapping (for test) with a like relay ...

Response From nickwarner

If you are doing Kev's test and don't want to annoy everyone around you, leave the horn unhooked and hook the power wire into a 12v test light. When the light is on, that would mean the horn would be blowing. Nice way to save your sanity while troubleshooting.

Response From Louuuuu

Thanks for the tips

Mitsubishi Mirage Wheel Studs

Question From Guest on Mitsubishi Mirage Wheel Studs

well, when i bought this car it only had three wheel studs on the front left tire. i drove it this way for roughly 9 months before it started to cause me any problems. now, it is broke down in my drive, with another broken stud and one of them stripped. the one that is stripped, isnt stripped on the threads. the teeth on the back of it that hold it into the hub are stripped. i backed the lug nut about half way off before it wouldnt move anymore and just spun with the wheel stud. i have tried justabout everything i can think of the break the stripped stud, however nothing has worked. if anyone has any ideas or knows how to fix this problem please reply asap.

the engine is a 1.5l 4CYL with roughtly 135000 miles.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Well, since the hub is 'trashed', the damage is already done. If you have access to a compressor, an impact chisel
is the easiest way to "split" the lug nut. A hammer and a flat cold chisel is another way, but a real job. Of course, either way, you'll have to extra careful to not damage the wheel, but if it has been running with loose lug nuts, it's probably 'trashed' as well. Good luck.

Response From Guest

welli dont know if the hub is trashed or not. as far as i know its just the wheel stud itsself that is stripped. i think this because when i was trying to replace the broke one, the teeth on the back of the new stud stripped out. i was thinking maybe drilling through the stud? would that weaken it enough to break it so i can get my wheel off to fix it?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

The serations on the stud hold it from turning in the hub. The studs are pressed into the hub. Once it spins, it damages the hub. The replacement stud can be welded into the hub, but for safety purposes, you should replace the hub. Drilling the stud is not a bad idea! Start with a small 'pilot' hole, then work your way up in size until you are nearly to the diameter of the stud. Should work. Good idea!

Response From Guest

. The studs are pressed into the hub. Once it spins, it damages the hub.
how do i tell if the hub has been damaged once i get the stud out?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Should be pretty obvious to the naked eye. Also, the new stud will 'just' push into the hole when it should have to be pressed in, taking a lot of force.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Hmmm? I think the hub will be rendered trash - aggree with Loren the welding a new one on isn't a good idea - heat and metal strenghth will be reduced.

Perhaps since this one that came part way out will think about re-tightening again?? Can you hold the pop rivot looking back of the wasted stud or pry on it inwards such that it grabs again and then overtighten the sucker and break it!

Some times when something is a "hole thru" idea it's easier to break the bolt tightening then trying to undo it.

There are several exhaust and shock absorber places that I always found easier to break from tightening (with a box a new stuff waiting of course) then fussing with undoing them - that was a rust issue - this is a pressed in spline into hub that should take lots of force for a new one to seat into hub or it will just fail also,

T

Response From Guest

i cant tighten it back down, the bolt is just spinning regardless wether i am tighening or loosening the lug nut.

P1296 code for a '96 Mitsubishi Eclipse?

Question From starr0329 on P1296 code for a '96 Mitsubishi Eclipse?

Year of vehicle: 1996
Make of vehicle Mitsubishi
Model of vehicle Eclipse
Engine size 2.0L
Mileage/Kilometers:183,000
Took the car to Advanced Auto Parts yesterday and this is code that came back (P1296). The car often will die at red lights, stalls, or will accelerate and then slow down suddenly on the highway, very scary. I did a Google search and this code for my car came back with "No 5 Volts To MAP Sensor". What does this mean exactly, and what do I need to do to fix it? Any help is appreciated, thanks so much

Response From Sidom Top Rated Answer

Like HT said since no other 5v ref codes are popping it could just be isolated to that circuit.
BUT you do want to make sure you have 5v at the sensor and it isn't a wiring problem...

You need to use a high impedance DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check this with. Using the wrong equipment could damage your computer. Years ago a rule of thumb was, if it's a digital DVOM then it has enough built in resistance to be safe. This is no longer true ( thank you very much CHINA). You need to make sure your meter has 10 megaohms of resistance. If the resistance is too low, this can allow too much current flow & damage the PCM. A guy I worked with spiked his Ford PCM (after repeated warnings) with one from that freight store. He couldn't understand why....He got the good one??? (the $10 one not the $3 one...)

If you have the correct meter. Disconnect the sensor, turn the key on (engine off) & carefully probe the connecter with the green/yellow wire. There should be 5 volts on that wire. If there is 5v, it's really looking like a bad sensor. Too be 100%, the ground and signal wire would need to be tested & the signal wire at the PCM. But that would be your call if you wanted to gamble....No 5v at the wire with KOEO and you have wiring/pcm problem and putting a sensor on it will fix nothing......

Response From Hammer Time

The computer sends a 5 volt reference signal to the sensor and measures how much of it that it sends back. Many other sensors share that same 5v reference line and they aren't setting codes so the problem is likely close to the sensor.

Response From starr0329

So would it be a good idea to replace the MAP sensor in your opinion?

Response From Hammer Time

Nobody said that. You need to find your problem.
