I had the very same thing happen to me.It turns out it was the engine controller, "MPI Control Unit", and I had the same symptoms you had were when you start the engine it cranks and runs for about 1 second and then dies. To temporarily remedy the problem until I could afford a new Engine controller, I found the wiring diagrams for the car in a Chiltons manual and on the connector called c23 pin 56 a white w/red strip wire, I stripped it back a little and hooked a wire to it and to ground. This makes the fuel pump run bypassing the controller. I found the Engine controller located behind the passenger side kick panel. Maybe, but I wouldn't bet on it.Could be the fuel pump, could be many other things. With the engine off, turn your ke on. If you hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds then shut off, it's probably good. You might try replacing the fuel filter, but those usually don't fail suddenly.

I had an experience with a 1993 Colt that died for no aparent reason. It was the catalytic converter had suddenly gotten stopped up from rust flaking off the inside of the exhaust manifold. You can test this by taking the exhaust pipe loose from the exhaust manifold and see if the car will start.

What do you think a good price would be for a two year old Dodge Raider?

There is no such model as a 2008 Dodge Raider in the united states. The vehicle was produced from 1987-1989. However, a modern incarnation of this vehicle is the Mitsubishi Raider. A rough estimation of a 2008 Mitsubishi Raider Extended cab with standard equipment, 24,000 miles, and in good condition is $9,225. This was obtained from www.KBB.com, and will vary by location and the condition/mileage/equipment of the actual vehicle in question.

Can 15 tires be put on a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer?

The 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer only came with 4 wheels installed on the vehicle, and 1 spare wheel stored in the trunk. Each wheel has 1 tire mounted on it for a total of 5 tires. If you wanted to put 15 tires on it, you would have to stack another 10 tires on top of the vehicle. Driving around like that would be illegal in all 50 states.
