I’ve read up about something with the ecu giving incorrect amount of fuel. My question is does this affect the engine or is it a sign the engine is going out if it stops after getting warmed up and driving for a few minutes? Thanks again much appreciated
    First, don't panic. Lots of earlier Mirages, my 2014 among them, make what some say is considerable racket on a cold start. I think your is likely flashed and fixed, you can look it up, I forget what link to use. Mine is flashed, still noisy. Horrible compared to my 2017.

    Now, some 2014-2015 Mirages had legitimate piston fit issues. They would slap on a cold start and the racket died down but never completely went away. Those engines need replacement. Check with your dealer only after you're listened to many, many youtube videos of noisy Mirages cold-starting.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way

    This method still works like a charm just helped get my 14 Mirage back on the road and out of a sticky situation. Thanks!

    Fummins has saved countless from crazy expensive repairs. I'm constantly trying to steer new owners to his channel and to here.
