There are a number of conditions that can cause a non-start/no run condition. The crankshaft sensor, ignition coil, MAP sensor, and distributor (if it has the camshaft sensor built-in as most Mitsu's do). The first thing to check in the throttle body, remove any sensors installed in it and clean it with solvent throttle body/carb cleaner, clean any sooty sensors and ensure the throttle body position sensor spring works. Put the sensors back with a slight tension on the throttle position sensor just like the old came out when you removed the mounting screws. If that doesn't work, proceed to diagnose using a OBD II Fault code reader such as an Actron or Sears cheapie. Respond the fault codes and replace parts as needed. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE BATTERY or you will lose all the stored fault codes, if the car doesn't start.
