Boggy turbo, or electrical

15

Asked by May 18, 2009 at 06:31 PM about the Mitsubishi Starion

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For some time not almost 6 months the car has been acting boggy, the gas mileage has also really gone down, and whenever i try to rev the engine up it bogs out and blows black smoke. there's two things i think it is, either the electrical system being 1 overloaded, or there's a short somewhere creating this. then i think the turbo could be going bad and it's just taking it's time on going out. ask any questions you'd like, i just want to know what's going on with my car.
