    I have an 86 Plymouth Voyager with the Mitsubishi motor in it.
    Ive been having this problem where whenever i let off the gas peddle to slow down or stop, it stalls and dies when i put my foot back on the throttle. i think its a carb problem but im not sure.. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Does it have a carburetor? Are you sure it isn't fuel-injected? If it's got EFI, that makes the problem a lot easier to guess, at least for me. I don't know much about carbed engines.

    My dad has a '95 with the same Mitsubishi 3-liter. That's a damn good engine. Ours has 280000 miles on it, no internals replaced.

    He may have the 4-cylinder 2.6. My neighbor has a Caravan so equipped; he ran his out of oil...


    ...twice. Not the engine's fault, of course, lol.

    They may smoke as they stack up the miles, but I've seen 'em top 200k & keep going.

    I didn't know the 4-cylinder was also a Mitsu engine. God, I can't imagine driving that behemoth without a V6.

    They used a number of engines, IIRC. Chrysler 2.2 & 2.5, Mitsu 2.6 & 3.0.

    The 2.5 had adequate power for an around-town grocery getter, but was weak in mountains, or fully loaded with people & baggage.

    The 3-liter is a beast. It doesn't go fast, but it doesn't really bog down with four passengers and 500lbs of bricks in the back, either.
