Have a 97 Mitsubishi eclipse gs. idles rough at a stop but runs smooth once I give it gas. Check engine light is on. had scanned and all it reads is cylinder 1 misfire. Any ideas?

Guessing you have a diagnostic trouble code of P0301. I would start by checking the spark plug first but the most common causes for a single misfire in your vehicle would be a bad fuel injector or bad spark plug wire. Now I am going by you have the basic Eclipes GS and not the GS-T with a turbo and that you have a 2.0 liter with dual overhead cams. You can check the injector with an ohm meter simply by unpluging it and checking the reisistance from one terminal to the other on the injector (see picture below). The resistance should be between 11 & 15 ohms. If it's not within specs, then it is bad and you need to replace it. In most cases the plug in that cylinder will be black as well when you check it but that's not always the case. If that tests out good I would visualy inspect the spark plug wire for that cylinder to see if it arching out soemwhere. There are so many aftermarket plug wires that there really isn't a full proof way of checking it. According the the specs for the wires as if it had OEM spec wires would be 3,000 to 12,000 ohms per foot of resistance when checking end to end with an ohm meter. These are the things I would start checking and if I was a betting man I would guess the injector was bad. Hope this helps

99 pontiac grand am se series 3400 liter motor i need to replace the water pump do you have to take the timing chain cover off to it looks like its all connected together

go to the library and get a book for your car with the motor you have in it.this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor and not the (dohc)dual overhead cam motor.the sohc motor the pump is located at the rad side of the motor and doesn`t need to have the timing cover removed.if it happens to be the dohc motor then your best to have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do

this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor.this pump is located at the front of the motor towards the rad.thus you don`t remove the timing cover and easy to replace,once you remove the serpintine belt then the pulley on the pump then there are about 6 bolts that you remove to change the pump.if its the (dohc)motor i strongly suggest you have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do and if you don`t get the timing belts timed exactly you will be sending the heads to the machine shop to repair.

Is my fuel filter needs to be single or dual?

The same basic engine, a 1.9L 4 cylinder, is in all Saturns 91 through 99. The main difference is whether or not it is a double overhead cam or single overhead cam. There is a fuel filter in the gas tank to keep debris out of the fuel pump, and another one in the fuel line just after it comes into the engine bay. It is a single in line filter and you can buy them at most auto parts stores. It may help the salesperson if you know if you have the SOHC SL1 or the DOHC SL2.

Got wires crossed while changing spark plug wires on 1996 saturn SC1. How do determine correct wire placement?

According to Saturn timing specifications, the internal firing order for the Saturn 1.9L motor, both Single overhead cam, or Twin cam is as follows:
Left to right 1-3-4-2

If you are routing spark plug wires, and need to know the order of wires from the coils to the engine, the order is as follows:
Left to right 4-1-2-3

How can i tell if my 1994 nissan maxima is single or dual cam?

Pretty easy to tell even without taking the valve cover off.
If it is a dual cam, then the spark plugs are lined up right down the middle, between the 2 cams.
Which is optimal.
If it is a single cam, the plugs have to be off to one side, on an angle.
Which is not as good.

I need to find a timing belt diagram for a 1994 mitsubishi galant

Your car will have the 2.4L SOHC engine in it (AKA 4G64). This manual will show you how to replace the timing belt (and more). Timing belt procedures start on page 33.

(P.S. this manual also includes the 4G63 engine, you can identify your engine by looking at the procedures for the Single OverHead Cam[or SOHC])

Hearing a ticking and a friend of mine said that some chryster just do that is that true am worried its the motor

the ticking on a 1995 with solid lifters or overhead cam design is likely caused by out of adjustment valve lifters. Not sure of milage, but common on high milage cars and especially those with an overhead cam or solid (not oil filled) hydralic lifters. I believe those models had an overhead cam.....Its a DIY job if you're comfortable performing the adjustment and have the tools to measure the gaps.
