It's still out of gas until the lines are purged of air. The fuel pump has to run awhile to build up pressure. Keep cranking. If you can take the small gauge wire off the starter easily,all you have to do is turn the key to the start position and hold it there for a while. Listen for the fuel pump. When it slows down or stops then reconnect the wire and it should start.

SOURCE: 2003 mitsubishi outlander won't start. It has gas

If that is the problem, then the engine is in serious need of weather-proofing. Is the 'check engine' light lit? If so, have the problem code(s) read out with a scanner. That will give you the clues needed to find your problem.

Your throttle body likely needs cleaning.

Take the intake hose off and using throttle body cleaner or brake cleaner, spray a rag and use our fingers to clean the gunk off the throttle plate and the contacting area of the inside of the throttle body.

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.

Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!

Thank you.

Could you please be more specific such as noises it may have made before and after, did it just go dead silent or just putter to a crawl. Have you tried anything such as starting fluid to see if it would start back up. Any tests been done.

Would high octanage as 91 damage my 2005 outlander?

The only way improper octane rated gas can damage your vehicle is if you use an octane rating that is too low. Using gas with a higher rating than your vehicle calls for will not damage the vehicle.

No start concern - Mitsubishi Outlander 2004

Check the IAC valve...or sometimes known as an electronic choke. That valve is how your engine gets air when the throttle body plate is closed. If the valve is stuck due to malfunction or carbon build up then it will cause that problem, and give you a rough idle at best.
