Theres a simple solution to check if it is your alternator. turn you car on and remove the negative terminal from your battery. if your car shuts off then it is your alternator but if it stays on then your alternator may not be the problem. this is a little trick my father showed me. you still might want to go get the car looked at

Keep it idling a little bit high about 1000 and remove the +ve terminal from the battery if went down then you have to check the alternator if it keeps on idling turn the headlights on (high beam ) if it stops then again you need to check the alternator if keeps on idling then alternator is ok

1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse flasher


Start by checking the fuses then move to the light bulbs. If those are ok check the flasher switch and then the turn signal switch. More than likely you will need to replace the flasher switch.

96 eclipse need more info..


This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016
