Hello! I just paid $1500 for this 1984 Mitsubishi Mirage GTS. It has a few problems and cosmetically is pretty bad but I'm looking for some help.

Runs and drives fine, however, it has white smoke intermittently from the exhaust. If you unplug one of the injectors the smoke stops so I think it needs a new MAF. It also has a very high idle. If you bring it nearly to a stop in gear the idle will knock back down to normal but if you just put it in neutral after being at RPM it will stay at about 2000.

Any and all help is appreciated!

Cosmetically its pretty rad. White smoke is generally coolant/water. Black will be fuel and oil will be blueish. Sounds like it likely needs a solid tune up, being a 40 year old turbo car I'm sure it could use some love.
