Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse

2 Answers

1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 non-turbo DOHC engine vin y. Car stalled and turns over but will not start. Towed to repair shop and at first they said it was a defective cam or crank sensor, but now they say it is the computer control module and I will have to tow it to a dealer and have a new one flashed. I see that Advance Auto has a Cardone ECC model 793013 for the manual trans model that is remanufactured and calibation is Pre-Flashed at the factory, but requires VIN and Mileage programming. Is this something that the dealer has to do or can most auto shops do this?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I was mistaken and it is a 1997 not a 1998. I took it to another repair facility that I have more confidence with and the result is that it was the timing belt slipped and bent two valves. They are currently doing a valve job now.

Don't get the "Cardone ECC model 793013" . i just check it out and when you click on the " See all vehicles this product fits " link, it shows this:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 non-turbo - 5fcbf9f.jpg ------------------------------------------------------------------

the problem with it is that the '97 PCM will not work on a '98. the pinouts on them are slightly different. The only 2 years that are interchangable are the 98 and 99 year models.
The part number for the correct one is 5293190AC.

If you get a remanned PCM that needs progamming, anyone or any shop with the correct programming tool can do it.

  • PCM (ECU) REPROGRAMMING

1995~1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS & GS with 2.0L non-turbo engine (Chrysler 420A engine) ECUs have been equipped with reprogrammable processors since 1995.
To reprogram Mitsubishi vehicles, you must use one of two different reprogramming tools. For the 1995~1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS & GS (with Chrysler 420A engine), you must use a Chrysler Flash Reprogramming Unit, MIT992000-A . Click here to order one from SPX, or call them at 1-800-533-5338.
----------------------------------

I would suggest just buying a used (98 or 99)PCM. Then all you have to do is unplug the old one, take out 3 bolts to remove the bracket/PCM, pull it out, 3more bolts to remove the ecu from the bracket and bolt the new one in place. Its about a 5 min. job.

The dealer would probably have to do programming. may not use your part from advanced. i understand you have trusted a shop for diagnosis. sounds like theyre still unsure. computers are very durable and usually dont commit suicide. be sure they have checked timing belt for slippage or breakage. if the belt jumped a tooth or so, that could screw up cam and crank readings.

1999 eclipse manual trans.2.0 engine non-turbo kills when stopping


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

How much is it to fix the turbo on a 1998 mitsubishi eclipse?


average price to have a turbo rebuilt is about $250 but some place charge as much as $400. if your talking about taking to a regular auto repair shop to have the work done you'll probably be charged $200-250 labor and shops usually mark up the parts at least 2X what they pay for them. A performance shop may be cheaper and they can probably find you a good used turbo for cheap.
