Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
My eclipse has been giving me problem for a while now but now it woint even run and need a car for work. So one day when i was driving the car just dies. It turned over but would not start then fter like 8 mins it started again so i decided to go home and it ran for about 5 mins then cut off again. So continued this for 20 ins till home.Also the car idled weird like it went high nd low like 900rpm to 1300 constantly. my mehanic came and told me it was my tps or map but i told hime those are less than a month old so he then said its the camshaft sensor so i changed that out and then the check engine light went away and the car ran for 3 mins then died. Then I had my Friend mechanic come nd he said the iac(idle air control) sensor was bad so i changed that. Yet again did the same thing. So now i was told it is the computer. I already spent about 400 in sensors and changed the fuel filter. So a computer is costing about 250 to replace is this the problem. Plese help if you can.

Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.
