Proton idle problem Sign In

Hi my mum has a 97 proton satria fuel injected with a 4g15 engine I believe this engine is in the lancer and mirage also it would lose power intermittently so I've takin it to many mechanics who just can't fix it .
Have changed a few sensors and spark plugs, fuel filter, throttle body and now won't run at all .
It will only barely run with the map sensor off but when back on it just won't fire.
Injectors are fine , fuel pump is fine
Nobody can figure it out
Any ideas
Thanks
Jimmy

We don't have that vehicle here in the US but is it setting any trouble codes?

The codes are map sensor codes and they clear straight away and there back on again
Appreciate any advice
Mechanics say they just don't have a clue

Could it be idle air control

You are going to have to get some diagnostics done to get to the bottom of that MAP code. That's pretty important.
