Evo V starting issues.

My V seems to have developed a funny starting issue. When cold it will take three tryís to get to fire off. It doesnít matter the length of cranks either. That goes away when warm. Another issue is sometime when being cranked, the starter will work much hard to get it to crank over, almost like the timing is way off and the cylinder arenít quite catching correctly. Other times it spins over like butter and will fire off.

Now I decided to log this issue when cranking and notice in my log that while cranking it will go all the way up to the upper 200 load area on the load scale. Then, it will come back down to 20,30,40 areas but again shoot way high up the scale. Anybody ever had this happen before? Iím fairly new at all this stuff but have a feeling I can get it figured out if I could get some help. Thanks!

Sorry about all the fuss on this post. Its been ages since I was active on any forums. anyways, here's a pic of my log. What would cause it to go all the way up the load scale like this?

Ok I did some more tinkering. I noticed my tps was set at 30%. I adjust led that to 10, then to 12%. Each one caused the car to buck in the worst way to the point it was undrivable. If you held the pedal to achieve over 20% it would be just fine but if you went under that threshold the wide band would go way lean and the car would fall on its face.

I have to have the TPS set at around 30% for the car to be have off throttle and then it drives just fine. My guess with the TPS set that way it’s cover up what ever other issue I’m having to start the car. Does it seem like the MAF is on the way out? Or maybe the cam angle sensor? I’m getting frustrated because this is one of VERY few E5s in the US and have no one to go to for help.

Inside your starter there are contacts called brushes. They transmitter current from your battery to the rotating coil of your starter... They are either dirty or worn. Or both. Hit the dealer or mitsubishiparts.net and order a new set for 45 bucks. Drop your starter take off the sheild. The end cap has for bolts on it pull those and check your brush length. New they are 3/4in long or so. The thing they touch is called a commutator clean it with 1000grit sand paper and maybe starter cleaner. Do not touch sand paper to anything else. Just the section the brushes touch. Clean the rest of the starter to free it of grime so it can create a magnetic field properly. Also pop open your starter solenoid. Should just be 2 screws but the are loctited on. Heat them with a lighter and remove them. Clean it well. And scuff the contacts with the 1k grit. Should work like new.
Again be careful to not scuff the armature it will arc and ground out to the field couls and not rotate. Best of luck...
