So I took it to the dealer to get it fixed they said it was carbon build up in the throttle all they did was cleaned it and reflash the ecu it's been a while now and it hasn't come back on :)
I'm getting this problem on a totally stock 08 GSR with 45k miles on it. This is he 2nd or 3rd time I've seen what you did as a solution, so I might look into doing that. What did the dealer charge you to do this? Does reflashing the ECU cost anything? I imagine cleaning the throttle body would cost some labor, so maybe I can do that myself if I find a good how to. Does it make a difference if the car is still under warranty or not as to the cost of this repair? Does it make a difference if it's a TSB, because apparently Mitsu has addressed this already in a TSB. Does that mean you could get a reflash for free?
