Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I have a 97 mitsubishi eclipse gs-t with about 100k on it. I'm trying to get it to pass the VA state emission test and it consistently returns codes of "system not ready" for the O2 and other parts of the emission system. I have heard from mulitple dealers and other mechanics that I simply need to drive the car. I have been driving it for about 2.5 weeks and put on about 200 miles and still get the "system not ready" messages when doing the test. Anything else I can do myself or simply go to the dealer to have them look at it?

SOURCE: have a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor.
You could try checking/replacing the Universal Joints (U-joint) and their attendant parts. Additionally, you may want to check the drivetrain from the transmission end to the differential. Incidentally, there were a couple of TSBs (Technical Service Bulletins) specifically addressing issues with the drivetrain.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Drive the car for 2 miles non-stop and take it to smog inspection WITH OUT TURNING OFF THE CAR!! the key is that the car goes threw the test while the engine is running ...
if the car is turned off ... u will have to repeat procedure ...

The gas odor indicates a leak in the fuel system, probably the gas line. This would cause fuel delivery problems and stalling. It may also be the reason the check engine light comes on.
Have the fuel lines checked and replaced if need be
