i drive a mitsubishi mirage 1997 saloon car. my problem is that when the engine gets hot, it begins to backfire with a "poo-poo" sound after which the engine slows down to a stop.
the engine comes back to normal speed when it is restarted but it begins to make a loud noise ""poo-poo"" then it slows down to a stop. please what could be the problem?
You may have a bad Crank Position Sensor. Is your check engine light on? If so, you should get the codes read. That will narrow it down to the exact issue...........
the check engine light is on
Bring it to a shop and have them read your error codes. That is why the check engine light is on. They will be able to diagnose the exact issue.
