Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse

How can i stop my 1994, 2.4 liter eclipse from cutting off shortly after putting into drive

Condition is 50 degrees outside. I idle car for a few minutes before driving. I go out into traffic but as soon as I come to a light it starts sputtering and acts as though its going to cut out. So i quickly get out of traffic and pull over to the side before it cuts out.

Fault with the IAC valve.there maybe a trouble code associated with it also./ Go to your nearby autozone or auto parts retailer and ask them to put a scanner to the car....make note of the codes if any are found. the IAC valve i usually locate don the throttle body and can be removed for inspection and sometimes cleaning using a good throttle body cleaner spray and a pipe cleaner brush.

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1994 nissan cefiro how to tune engine wont idle engine runs ok when revs are up


could be a number of things so i'd start with a few basic checks , make sure the air intake pipes are in good condition and securely fitted and the air filter is clean, the vacuum hoses also need to be checked for condition and make sure they are pushed onto their connection as these can easily pop off,crank case vent to air filter/rocker covers must be clear remove and check as should have a wire filter that may be getting clogged with oil deposits etc ,if these are ok then i'd look at the fuel lines but would have noticed a leak by now,try a fuel addative as might just be a carbon build up somewhere along the combustion /exhaust process , follow the instructions carefully , i've found that when using these addatives it's a good idea, if possible, to go for a long drive maybe 100 miles at a highish speed so everything can get to the correct operating temp , is car mainly stop/start use keep me posted if you wish

What temp should a/c be in 1995 chev on max


Hard to say.
Under normal conditions, vent temp should be about 20 or 25 degrees less than outside air temp.
So if outside air temp is 90 degrees and the engine is at idle speed, vent temp would be around 65 or 70. On the road the vent temp could be less than 60 degrees.
If outside air temp is 70 degrees vent temp will be around 40 - 50.

My a/c compressor in my 1998 mitsubishi eclipse in seizing up and sticking causing my engine to lose power and cut off in drive and idle


I would suggest that you have the A/C pump replaced. In the mean time you can remove the A/C belt, even if it's the entire serpentine belt and replace it with a shorter one to eliminate the A/C Compressor. If you go to your local parts store and ask for a belt for that model car they will ask if it has air conditioning or not, tell them that it does but you want the belt for the non air conditioned model and a mounting diagram. This will leave you with no air but in a short while the compressor is going to burn that belt off anyway.

Does the '94 camry wagon have a timing belt or chain? It's a 4 cylinder.


1994 2.2 liter 4 cylinder is a timing belt, it should be changed every 90,000 miles under moderate driving conditions, under severe driving conditions (stop and go traffic, etc.) it should be changed every 60,000 miles

ROugh idle


there are 2 things that usually cause this, one is a dirty intake idle control valve and the other is hard engine mounts, I would say that both most likely apply to your car. try cleaning the intake with the following procedure from Ford.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

2002 camry battery changed, dies in idle


When you take your battery out and put a new one in all your computer controls have to be reset. You need to drive the car at 55 MPH for 2 min or so, stop, go through normal drive cycle, stop and go and then if it don't straighten out you need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve. Hope this helps. PHil
