PO118 is Engine coolant temperature circuit High input. remove the plug and reinstall it. then try removing the negative battery cable and leaving it off for a few minutes.the place it back. try this several times. if that does not re program the computer. you may have to replace the sensor.

Is the engine cranking over? Or is the clicking you described all that happens? If the engine is turning over, the first thing you want to make sure of is that you all your connectors plugged back in and that you have spark at the spark plugs.
If the engine is not turning over and you only hear a clicking sound, recharge your battery or replace it and go from there.
Post what you find out so we can go further.

Why is my 98 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0 non turbo is making a horrible squeaking sound about 2 minutes of running engine? Was told it could be my power steering pulley. What does this mean? Do I tighten i

The mechanic who did the work may have gotten coolant on the drive belts or not sufficiently adjusted the belt tension . I'd replace the belt especially if the sides of the belt are shiny.

I have a 1996 Mits. eclipse 2.0 non turbo. The car is overheating. The car drives fine until I stop then the temp gauge starts to go up. I have check the coolant levels and I am loosing mild amounts of...

I doubt it is the thermostat but it won't hurt to replace it. The water under teh passenger side is most likely the AC drain which should be happening. If you have no leaks on the upper and lower hoses the next place to look is the water Pump itself not circulating the water properly when the vehicle is at idle. It is natural for the temp to rise when sitting in traffic with the AC on because you have less airflow through the radiator. I would replace the thermostat and back flush the radiator under pressure.

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs non turbo that has a water outlet that has been pitted and needs replacing. I cannot find the outlet for the non-turbo. Any suggestions?

Your problem is most likely because you are describing your vehicle as a "Gs". The only similar listings in the catalog are for a "GSX". (The parts counter person probably has no clue that there is a difference) The GSX is only built in a turbo version, therefore you will not find a water outlet for the non-turbo simply does not exist.

Now, if you simply describe it as an Eclipse, there are water outlets listed for the turbo 2.0L, the non-turbo 2.0L and the non-turbo 2.4L engines. You did not bother to mention engine size, so I will list the part numbers for BOTH of the non-turbo engines.

For the 2.4L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815517

For the 2.0L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815576

Both are available from AutoZone
