Are you having more problems with the Mitsi!

Are you absolutely positive the stepper motor is faulty! Ie have you measured the resistance over each pair of coils! Often it will just be a blocked throttle body and the stepper motor is at the end of its adjustment range.

Very sure Phil - it's only on start up when cold and it's when stop she cuts out - have already cleaned throttle body (wasn't dirty as such but cleaned it anyhow) and bought some contact cleaner and cleaned air flow meter and put new air filter in

It's not fuel filter or pump and it's not injectors or air inlet manifold leak - so process of elimination has lead me to stepper motor - which is usual for an auto to stall due to a faulty one

ONLY happens in first 30-60 seconds of starting car up - never again for rest of the day

Id mesure the resitance like philsaid just to make sure. Correct me if im wrong phillip but you mesure middle pin top to left and right top. Middle pin bottom to left and right lower. Should be around 28ohms on all four.

turns out it was an intermittent fault on the coolant temp sensor in the end lol - thanks to mate who is auto sparky for donating an hour to go through ALL the readings of the sensors with me . hence why i was getting variations of fuel consumption lol!
