car cranks but will not stay running, any suggestions?
I was just riding around town the other day and nailed it in 2nd gear and my car just jerked like a fuel cut of some sorts and shortly after died. I pulled over cranked car back up and it was fine. But once i got ready to pull in driveway it just died, and would not crank back up even giving it gas. I just ran the other night at track with 110 race gas 50/50 with 93 with mbc set at 16psi, no other mods. Now car still will not stay running, crank no prob, but soon as it cranks, even giving it gas, rpms just drop car dies and instrument lights come on. Ive heard it could be ecu, coil pack, vaccuum hose, or combination. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, need car running again.
I'd check the vaccuum hoses going to the fuel regulator.
Check the accelerator cable under the hood at the throttle body.
Then check the wiring harness above the fuel pump in the trunk area.
Then check the fuel filter to see if there are any leaks
After that, I'd probably say it's a fuel pump problem.

Mine turned out to be that the large honeycomb in my MAF sensor came undone and caused a huge air restriction. Take a peek inside your MAF and see what it is. Other things that could be the culprit would be fuel filter or fuel pump.
Your 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL is one of 4245. It was built in 1st week of 07/94 and it was the 1421st post production car of that model to come out of the plant. There were 5395 other cars of the model year made at the Nayoga plant before your car.
There are 45 other cars that were made with both the same interior and exterior color. There are 85 cars with the same exterior color and 1115 cars with the same interior color.
Well, Ive changed the fuel filter, checked all i/c pipes, pulled ecu and no sign of leaky caps. After a week of fooling with it, it only acts up in the morning when theres a lot of moisture on the car, under the hood. I've driven the car every day now after work, 6-8 pm, without any problems what so ever. But every morning, crank it up, runs for about 20 secs, dies.
