SOURCE: dies while idling and gas surges going slow

I don't know about the smell of gas, but we had the same problem. the first time it happened, (I don't mean it happened once - it happened repeatedly) a bottle of fuel injector cleaner solved it,

The next time it happened ( a couple years later) I was stranded at the first red light when I got into the city. The car would stall each time i put it in drive. It would idle fine i neutral & park, but stall in and other gear. A guy stopped to help me - he was from a reputable transmission chain. he said the problem was with ? ?? in the transmission ( I can't remember exactly 0 it was about years ago) he fiddled with a switch that locked up in behind the drivers side front tire. he couldn't get it unlocked, so the car was towed to his transmission shop. They repaired the problem and I have not had this issue since!

SOURCE: 2000 mitsubishi eclipse dies when idling

What you have is PROBABLY a bad Idle Air Control stepper motor... if the car stays running with your foot on the gas, and only dies when you let your foot OFF the gas... or if it dies when you shift (again, cause you foot is off the gas) that is definitely the problem. The stepper motors are kind of pricey (over $300) at the dealership, but you should be able to get one from an auto parts store for 150 or so. easy as heck to replace, it has three 8MM bolts into the throttle body, just unplug it, unscrew the bolts, and put the new one in... just be sure to be careful with the new o-ring... DON'T LOSE IT! :)

Good luck!

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse will not idle, all else OK, just repl bat

I can only offer these few ideas.

  1. The TP throttle position sensors for this year group fail often Pin 1 to Pin 4 resistance should be 3.6 to 6.3 ohms but you need to remove the two 7mm bolts that hold this sensor on the front side of the throttle body, then rotate the two bolstered center and see a change in resistance from low to high. If the resistance remains fixed, the sensor is rusted out and must be replaced.
  2. The IAC motor is mounted on th LH side (driver's) of the throttle body. It should make a clicking sound when the key is turned from Lock to Run. Pin 2 to Pin 1, Pin 2 to Pin 3, Pin 5 to Pin 4, and finally Pin 5 to Pin 6 must all have continuity at 38 to 52 ohms.
  3. Check for any vacuum leaks.
  4. Remove clean and check EGR.
  5. If this is a Cranks but will not start problem, check the owners manual for Theft Deterant UNLOCK proceedure. If there is power at the rear fuel pump relay coil and no power at the MFI/ASD front relay coil and no spark, then its the security system.

SOURCE: Location of thermostat 2003 Mitsubetsi Eclipse 4

The thermostat is found at the end of the top radiator hose . Find the top radiator hose and follow it to the engine .There you will find a thermostat housing with the end of the hose attached . There will be 2 bolts holding down the housing to the engine. Undo the bolts and pull the housing off and the thermostat will be there.

SOURCE: Stalls when at idle after changing battery

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

Most radio static is down to poor grounding of the aerial or the set itself. Poor quality HT leads can also do it.

Sounds like the battery is the problem. It's losing power buy a poor connection and the car's computer is trying to reset itself. Replace the battery and the cables.
