    Cutting off while driving

    I'm experiencing my vehicle cutting off while going down the road like it is out of gas! I installed a new fuel filter checked the plugs all plug wires and the connections to the engine and see no visible problems. When it cuts off you can crank it right back up, but it will do the same thing again and with it idling it runs perfect. suggestions?

    I see you changed fuel filter, but did you check fuel pressure? Sounds like you have a fuel issue.

    Some have problems with their mass overflow air sensor. Not sure if you have one on your truck though.

    Evidently the problem was that the coil wire had worked loose inside somehow ! I checked the coil wire as camoit suggested,and put it back on and it appears to be running fine,I dove it 12 miles without a single problem

    Yep but there is not much left to call it a Mitsu. Only the cab, gas pedal, parking brake, wipers, and defrost blower are stock. Oh and the mirrors. Everything else was crap and needed to be replaced.

    problem not solved. after driving without any issues for 12 miles we stopped for a hour cranked it back up and as we was pulling off it starts bucking like a wild bull. it goes not even a quarter of a mile and cuts off. and after cranking several times nothing. only after sitting 10 mins it cranks and drives home without issues. will be replacing the ignition coil this weekend.

    It's got to be the pick up coil.

    Sounds more like the fuel pump is on its way out. when a fuel pump starts to go it will heat up and expand this causes you to lose pressure and shuts down the engine till the pump can cool down again.

    He called me the other day on this. But now that it's doing it again he should be able to find it. We went over the pump and ignition. I hope he remembered to check for spark when it shut off on him to rule it out.

    I hope you solve that problem soon.
    Vapor lock out of the question? I keep thinking fuel problem since you have to wait for a float bowl to refill or wait for a crack in the coil to cool down to enable voltage to connect or jump across 2 points.

    Rock auto has the control module. About 35 bucks. That is what dies on the first gens and causes the problems you are having. Be sure to use the discount code in the general dissuasion area.

    Problem solved !!!! You will not believe the culprit ! It was a _ROOKIE move on my part. I replace the Icm which did not solve the problem. My wife went to move the truck and it did nothing.IE-no lights on the dash or anything. The problem all along was a loose hot battery cable

    it's always the stupid stuff you over look that usually causes the problem.

    Problem apparently is not solved! the truck drove fine for 3 days coming home i stopped and cut the truck off went to restart and it would spin but would not start. sit for 10 mins fired right up and came home with no problems. i guess it will be a new distributor or fuel pump. im at my last nerve with this thing
