This message is for Aeroboy778: What was the problem with your Stealth ES when it would start and run for a short time and then die and not restart until you turned off the ignition for a while. you replaced the fuel pump and relay but that did not fix it. I have the same car with the same problem, any help would be appreciated

Good morning! I had this same issue with my 91' R/T TT. I had purchased this car after sitting for years! Immaculate condition with only 42,000 miles. After replacing mass air flow sensor, o2 sensors and injectors...I had found that there was about 1.5 inches of dirt in the gas tank! You may want to pull the fuel pump out and look it over. Check the filter sock to see if it may be picking up trash. Sometimes people may get gas after the delivery truck fills (or unloads) the underground tanks..which stirs up any trash in their tank..pumped into your gas tank. If you can..may as well replace the stock pump with a 255L. Not for sure...you may have already done this. Maybe coil packs? These cars are very sensitive...I took mine to the dealership and they had no mechanics on hand that could even begin to work on this car!!! Check back and let me/us know...we'll get it running!!!

I saw you were talking to aeroboy778 about a problem he had with the car starting and runing a few minutes and dieing and having to shut off the ignition for a while to get it to restart but it still dies again. this was in 2009
do you remember what his problem was or do you know how to contact him.
There was another thread about a popping noise coming from the ecm area,
I have this also. any help. Snapon scanner with the Mitsubishi adapter will not communicate with the vehicle.

its probly your fuel pump, this happens when your fuel pump starts to go out and it overheats.
#88 of 88 Check your ECU

I read through alot of these posts. I must say first thing to check is your ECU, your engines computer. Mitsubishi used low grade capaictors in the ecu they leak onto the board and the fluid eats through the boards. the capacitors are rated for 2000 hours. so if you are having no start issues or fuel issues or any crazy issues you cant figure out pull your ecu out and check to see if the capacitors have leaked. you can get the capacitors changed out for 50 bucks or buy a new or used rebuilt ecu for around 250 bucks new i think are 450. these need to be checked every so often if you leave them it will eat holes in any of the 3 boards in the ecu and can lead to a spendy repair. I sent my ecu to NW tv and radio repair in bremerton washington the guy charges 50 bucks+ shipping to change out the caps and clean up the boards. He is familiar with these ecu's. Good luck
