Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

96 eclipse. I tried to resolve the issue with the car but dunno whats wrong now. So i changed the map sensor like advised and put new PVC line and cleaned sensors. Now the car starts fine at steady rpms but only if the tps sensor is not plugged in. Also it Still redlines at 4000 rpm. Also it wont allow me to rev up. it will die if i push all the way down but if i tap the gas it will drop rpms (like about to die) and it will eventualty go back up to regular idle. Need help badly.Whats weird is when it goes below idle rpm it will allow me to gas and then redlines at 4000. well please let me know your take on things thank you

    Sorry man, i've been busy. I had to drop my transmission because i killed 3rd gear synchro. Anyway your problem remains the same. It's something to do with the MAP,TPS, and O2 sensors.

    Oh, now i remember what the problem was and it was my MAP sensor wires going to my safc. I googled this problem and came up with this solution.

    There are a couple troubleshooting things you can do, it involves a multimeter and you blowing into the map sensor. Try to clean the intake manifold first and see if that helps.

    If that doesn't help post back here or contact me via messenger. Aim/yahoo/msn sn: Carnifreekshow or for msn

Check for a vaccum leak at the intake. With the engine at idle spray a bit of starting fluid to find it. You will hear the engine pick-up when you hit the spot. Change the necessary gasket. Hopefully this will solve your prob! Frankster016

Where is the Map Sensor Locate on a 2008 Dodge Caliber SXT 2.0 Liter Engine.

I would check for an vacuum leak first, vacuum leak depending on what line its on can raise the rpm. you don't want to go a round just changing parts, also if the mp sensor has gone you would have engine lite fault on the dash. vacume line you dont. even a gasket leak you dont.

For what sensor this code correspond u1108

That code doesn't correspond to any sensor. That is a communication error on the bus line between all the computers. One of the computers lost communication with the others for at least a period of time. You will need some high tech equipment and a lot of electrical knowledge to resolve that issue

Check engine and battery lights are on after i changed both(battery and alternater) ...the car would run but the battery will be drained what's wrong wit my 96 eclipse

If you used a new or rebuild alternator, I'd suspect that the harness from the alternator to the battery is open circuit. It happens with age and corrosion. Measure the alternator terminal voltage, engine running. Should be about 13.7v. Same voltage should appear on the battery + terminal. If not, make up a heavy duty temp cable and run it from the alt to the battery.

96 eclipse non-turbo idles way too high, disconnect MAP sensor it goes down but then idles rough

Yes by disconneting the map sensor will drop idle and make run rough, the problem is the idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, try to clean the throtlebody with an old tooth brush and some throtlebody spray cleaner if that doesnt help then try having the iac valve checked the iac valve (Idle air control valve ) if with the engine running listen for a hissing noise that will be a vacuum leak, these are the most common reasons for higher than normal idle. hope this is helpful.

I Had a p1131 code replaced o2 sensor before cat it still runs like **** with no check engine light what could be the problem YES I AM A Girl

vacuum leak in PVC line or clogged PVC. its a leak after the map sensor. o2 sensor is correcting for a lean condition so its adding fuel to your car when the o2 sensor detects the extra air.

Car turns slowly but just wont start

Starter turning slowly sounds like:

- bad starter, or
- bad connection to starter, or
- bad connection(s) on starter relay, or
- low charge on battery, and
- and maybe some others... but these are most likely

1996 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0 non turbo

That's wrong and the mechanic should know that. For 96 and newer cars, OBD 2 (onboard diagnostics, second generation) systems are in use, and the codes that come up are four digit codes.

That means that the code you got is 1255, not four individual one-digit codes (even a pre-96 car would have two digit codes, not single digit). Generically, a 1200-series code deals with fuel and air metering, but unfortunately I don't have a listing for a 1255. What symptoms does your car have? Is it just bad gas mileage or is it acting up in other ways? Post up as a reply here with anything along those lines that you can think of and I'm sure we'll figure out the problem.

My car is actin up!!!!

I have a similar problem. Start with the cheap stuff like spark plugs and wires. Then check your fuel filter. After that, check your MAP sensor, and or fuel pump. Also your TPS (throttle position sensor)
I know this problem is very common. I have searched everywhere, and there is no one specific solution. Good Luck!
