Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Runs Rough and Rich then Dies After Engine Reaches 150 Degree F

I have a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder that Runs Rough and Rich then Dies After Engine Reaches 150 Degree F. I''ve replaced the ECU, Cooler Temp Sensor, Air Flow Meter, O2 Sensors.
Did notice if you diconnect the Alternator Fuse, Vehicle Runs Normal and it does not die.
After replacing the Alternator, the problem still exists. Inspected all the wiring harness, all apeared to be fine. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks....

SOURCE: Changing the front speaker 2001 Eclipse Spyder

There are 7 screws all together to remove the door pannel. First, you have to take off the hanlde for the door. the 2 plastic covers on the handle pop off revealing 2 screws on the top and bottom, remove those. then behind the the door handle on the inside, pull it as if you were to open it and there is a screw that you have to remove. Then there are 2 screws on either side of the door pannel, both are farily close to the top, remove those, and then its just a matter of popping the pannel off. start from the bottom, pop it off then slide it up. becarefull, after the door panel is free, there is a connection for the power doors and windows unhook that then the pannel will be free. after that the speaker will be right there and its common sense on removing that. good luck.

What are the probable causes of DTC P0450?


Fuel tank pressure sensor may be a different part from what you replaced, and may be related or not. Check coolant temp sensor as these fail often and will make ECU think engine has not warmed up thus sends rich mix.

After I start the engine it runs fine until it warms up to operating temperature and then runs rough and produces black smoke until t dies. It will not re-start normally until it has cooled.


Bad coolant temp sensor making ECU think engine is still cold, thus running rich, as if choke is on. There are two temp sensors, one for dash gauge (one wire) and one for the ECU (two wires). You can remove it and test with voltmeter by placing unit in hot or cold water to compare readings.

Sensor for radiator fan 01 mitsubishi eclipse 4 cylinder


Assuming the cooling system is full of fluid, there is a coolant temp sensor that tells the computer what the engine temp is. When the engine reaches aprox 220 degrees the computer grounds the fan relay.
If you have tested the fans and you know they work, could be the sensor or the relay, or the computer.

My check engine light stays on.


You can take your car to Auto Zone and they will scan the codes for FREE. They will also let you know the part causing the problem. 99% of the time it's a sensor that you may be able to replace yourself if your handy with cars. Without the codes, it's random guessing to fix the problem.
