    im no stranger to stalling my car either. but ive had only one or two random stalls where the engine died. this is more the car wont rev past 2k or accelrate past 20 if im going less than 20. it really feels like limp mode but i dont know what would cause that unless my maf died. the connections feels likely cause and wouldn't be surprised if it was a bad ground or corroded wire. on my old jetta tdi i had a problem like this a few times but it was always weird and different. the diesel ate through my fuel lines twice, the maf sensor died twice, the turbo died and then finally the clutch disintegrated. as too finding a good mechanic, if you know kne who specializes in mitsubishis in the denver area let me know. i dont have time or another vehicle to drive that i could leave my car at the mechanics for something i can diagnose and fix. i drove all day today again and didnt have any problems until it got cold so i dont have a great hypothesis of what could be going wrong.

    Keep us updated, benwerks.

    I'm curious to find out at the end of the day what your issue is and the cause, etc. because it seems like something that could randomly malfunction with any of us Mirage owners.

    My stalling out on a damp day may be wiring related, but yea hope to hear good news coming your way with your car.

    Hey benwerks what kind of gas are you using? Do you stick to Top Tier fuels?

    Though I doubt bad fuel is causing this, it wouldn't hurt to try some Techron fuel system cleaner.

    BTW, any codes yet?

    I think in his first post he said he ran techron through it.

    Oh, yeah. Duh. Thanks.

    Wishful thinking. I can't keep up with these troubleshooting threads.

    Sometimes I post without reading (who said it first? we can make it our mission statement.)

    today the tc lights and the abs light came on while driving to oreily's so i could work in their lot. got both front tires off and the abs sensors are present and the wires are fine. under the kick panel the wiring harness was pretty clean and the plastic sheet was covering the backs of the plugs still. im going to pull the rear wheels to check those sensors now.

    brakes plus pulled the abs codes

    c1340
    u1073
    u1100
    u1109

    c1340 was associated with some stoplight.

    the guy said try replacing the bulbs and see if it helps. i knocked on the side of each brake light and they turned back on and the lights on my dash are off...

    So, all this was caused by a faulty brake light?
