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 89 Check your ECU
May 22, 2012 (10:26 pm)
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
#89 of 89 Dodge Stealth RT Turbo Missing after starting to drive
Aug 17, 2013 (5:07 pm)
My 1991 Stealth RT Turbo with only 8,500 miles started cutting out when I started driving it after taking it out of winter storage. I store the car with fresh fuel and a good stabilizer that does not contain any cleaners. I have been storing this car using the same methods since I purchased it in 1991 and have always had great luck. Similar to one of the posts that I read, I took the car to the Dealer I purchased it from and after a day they called me and said they did not have the equipment to diagnose the problem as the equipment was all obsolete. After I drive the car about 8 miles the problem seems to go away and the car runs fine. The Dealer did say it could be the crank position sensor or a turbo waste gate. None of these seem logical to me. I would appreciate any comments regarding this situation. I thought it may have been a problem with bad fuel or moisture but one of my other cars, with fuel purchased from the same source, ran perfect. Thanks for any help you can provide. AJAK
