    my eclipse wont start and i already changed the starter and got a new battery. When I try to turn it on it will begin to start but never does fully start.

    so wait hold on the crank wont make a full rotation? man i hate to tell u this but thats really not good have you checked your timing belt or maybe broke a timing belt because ummm that ussually means that your pistons are hitting something get a really big break over bar and a socket on the harmonic balance bolt (the big bolt in the middle of your crank pulley) and pull out your spark plugs then see if you can turn it over manually then post the results oh and sorry if this post sounds insulting i dont mean it like that its just alot of ppl dont know what im talking about most of the time so i use () alot to simplify

Also, found out it could be the computer. My 1990 GS would try to start all day, but it wouldn't actually crank. When I got a actual mechanic to come look at it, we had already replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, spark plugs, and plug wires. NO luck. So we took it to his house, and he found out the computer went bad. 300 bucks for a new one. Bought the car for 500 cause it wouldnt start.

How do I replace a MAP sensor and fuel filter on a 1997 Eclipse Spyder GS 2.4 Liter non-turbo


Fuel filter is under the car remove the clips holding it up and then remove the fuel lines going into filter. Install new in reverse order. Map sensor is easy just remove and replace its located on the air inlet by air filter

1990 mitsubishi eclipse gs 2.o turbo. the car crank no start


Sounds like a failed or disconnected ignition coil wire.
Hook up an OBD reader and crank the thing for awhile watch the reader for the code. Look up the code number . You may need a book for your car to do this. The reader will tell you what's amiss.

Chk Eng lite,Gas odor,some days no strt,bux@redlights


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

1990 mitsubishi eclipse wont stay running


ok heres the thing when a car sets for a long time you have to do more then just clean the tank you also need to flush and replace all fluids in it and replace the fuel filter (that one is key because it empties out the fuel lines and injectors) and also please do youself a favor and replace the timing belt i can not stress that enough every 60,000 miles or 18 months please just to be safe replace the timing belt these 6 bolt 2.0 engines are great and so easy and cheap to build but if you brealk that timing belt you will be buying a new engine but truth be told sonds like you have and intake sensor thats gone out pop ur air can off and check the mas for a wasp nest or something like that

1990 eclipse gs turbo starts & idles wont go past 2500rpms


you have a boostleak, i build gsx's my roommate owns 4g63 power, give me your email er cell and i will send you a boost leak detector you hook up to the turbo inlet and shoot pressurized air into it and if you have a boostleak it will leak out of the engine somewhere that is your leak you replace the seal or hose and blauw the car is fixed, hook me up with blue feedback since im going this far out of my way. the reason you cant get past 2500rpm is because unmeetered air is being let in post maf sensor and the ecu is trying to richen up the engine which is causing the black smoke and probably a strong smell of fuel. my current dsm is the 9th one ive owned =) they break alot lol easy fix though.
