The first generation eclipse had a hydraulic tensioner arm for the timing belt. This device could be faulty although it seems to be working. It's specs call for 75 psi., but they tend to lose pressure after a few years. This and a shaky motor are your two most likely culprits.

Probably a off set holder in the circut or the morot is jumping and bouncing yoru timing belt off but that would take like hitting a curb or something like my buddy did with his civic

2000 mitsubushi eclipse keeps shutting off. Ecu and fuel pump replaced


There may be an oil pressure sensor that is telling the computer that there is no oil pressure. That will shut the car off. Either there is not enugh oil pressure or the sensor is malfunctioning.

Probably when you installed new belt you caused the timing to be off and now your camshaft sensor wont allow car to run.

Engine sounds very loud on 2001 eclipse spider


it sure sounds like you need a timing light and a tension bar to tighten the timing belt you can't run it around for too long with it loose could cause damage to such a compact engine. Try loosening the nut/pulley that is attached to the loop shaped eyelette, hard to explain (it's made for the bolt to slide in) loosen just enough to put some tension against the belt and then tighten while still pressing against the tool of leverage careful not to damage what you are prying against. This will most likely help but you will most definately need to re time as the belt is no longer in the correct position.
