    No, not usually. But you ALWAYS repair the codes before digging deeper. The ECM is telling you there is a problem, and that is where you should start. It is when things like this happen and there...

    I love how he waves his arms around talking about dangerous new cars when any car he lists will be safer than the '90s Toyotas he drives.

    Uggghhhhh...

    Ummmm....did you try replacing that sensor the ECM told you is causing the problem? You know, the Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor?

    Bend the wiper blade backward until it clicks. You will feel like you are going to break it, but you won't. The simply put the new one on the same way you took off the old one.

    Pisses me off that you guys can get what is essentially a US-spec Mirage GT with a manual transmission...
    :mad:

    You don't have to build a bunch of Mirage GTs with manuals, Mitsubishi. But let me...

    Honestly, the first thing I would try is disconnecting the battery for about an hour to see if you can do some kind of 'hard' reset on the PCM.

    There was also a thread here about damage to the...

    When I first got my Mirage I remember poking around under the hood just to see where all of the major components were. I was pleased to note that the water pump looked like about a 30 minute job!...

    Apparently, UK customers also get a price cut. Wonder if Mitsubishi will be this kind to us Yanks?

    This system is such a pain in the ass. One of the sensors was bad on my '04 Saab 9-3, and has been since I bought the car two summers ago. I decided to wait until I could change out the...

    Not to sound like a jerk, but did you push the AC button? Turning the temp down all the way should automatically engage the AC compressor (it does on my '15), but have you pushed the button manually?

    I drive for 'the other guys'. About 40 hours, five days, 100+ deliveries, and 600+ miles per week. I was in exactly your position in the fall of 2014.

    I had a 1997 Geo Metro that was a great...

    Not at all...especially if you were to replace the engine/trans as a unit. A couple people here have done it. All you really need are hand tools and maybe a hoist. Plus, the drivetrains are...

    These are tinfoil cars with bulletproof drivetrains. I have put 140,000 delivery miles on my car, and it hasn't had a single problem. Like you, I thought about buying a spare engine and/or...

    I did, but it was under the 'What Did You Do To Your Mirage Today' thread. Post #449. :)

    I have nearly 140,000 miles on my original starter, and my car is used exclusively for door-to-door delivery. 100% short trips. I am amazed at how well it has held up.

    I replaced it with an Interstate back in July. So far, so good! Oh, and the new battery did clear up the 'stutter' it occasionally had when it started.

    Doesn't sound like a bad deal if it has a clean title. But you might be able to bargain more since there really isn't a strong demand for these cars.

    Really the only thing to be mindful of with...

    My buddy's wife had one of those Cavaliers back in the late 1990s. I had to drive it for some reason, and it was actually pretty fun. It was faster than I expected, even though I had an '88 Fiero...

    Definitely this if you replaced the belt. They will stretch a little bit in the first few hundred miles, and will often need to be tightened up more.

    Could this be the exhaust flange 'chirp' that appeared when Mitsubishi changed the catalytic converter for 2017?

    Many people may understand, but for me it is a 1965 Buick Riviera. I think it is one of the best looking cars ever made. Oh, and make mine a GS!

    My buddy in high school had one. Bright yellow. I had a '71 Karmann Ghia at the time, and we would race each other. Very, VERY slowly!:)

    My first car was a '71 Ghia. I inherited it from my grandfather. Wish I still had it!

    At KBB, there is a review for a Mirage with 222k on it. It is a CVT, and the original trans. Guy even posted a pic of the odometer. I am sure you could find it, print it out, and put it under your...

    Ummmm....my car hasn't spit them out yet, and it has been 40,000 miles. I found the interchange on a website I can't find now.
