Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Starting problem turn over but not start.

I tried turning on my car today and it would not start. It turned over and kept doing that but wont start . So i kept at it for a few mins then finally it started.Then i let it idle for 15 mins then turned it off. I tried to restart right fter and it did the same thing as before and took even longer to start. What causes this?Also can the cold affect this since its a older car?

    well it has a new tps sensor, new map sensor, idle air sensor, fuel filter, pump and plugs, i checked the plugs and wires yesterday and they worked fine but it was really wet like with oil at the tips. thats when i changed the coolant temp sensor. Anything else i should check?

Ran out of gas yesterdya and wont start today.

If you ran out of gas, then you will need to perform the following. Turn the key to the on position (do not start). Turn key off. Repeat the process a few more times. Also, have someone help you, for when you turn the key to on, you should be able to hear the fuel pump hum. After a few times, try starting the vehicle. Air has gotten trapped in the fuel injectors. By turning the key a few times, it primes the injectors. If it still will not start, or you cannot hear the fuel pump, then have it checked out. Hope that works. Let me know.
