    well i did have that checked yet. i would have to get it towed but that would cost more and well i'm trying to fix it myself. if one spark plug is not connected could that casue the car to not start up once again it sounds like it is trying to start but wont start up. and now i cant get one of the spark plugs out the one that the coil covers up. the socket is not fitting arount the spark plug

    try replacing your map ("manifold air pressure" swich) sensor on the intake manifold. What error code is the OBD2 reading?

I know it's kinda late but hopefully this post can still help someone. I'm reddragon859 I had the car put on a diagnostic and the problem was with the crank sensor.

I have the same problem on my 2002 Eclipse RS 2.4l 4 cylinder. Replaced the battery, starter, fuel pump(not at one time) . It started up when I had the starter put on as well the fuel pump. But everytime I started the car up it ran good till I turned it off the problem was still there. The car sounds like it wants to start but it sputters you can smell the gas so I know its getting fuel. it starts up fine with a cold start like in the morning.

Try getting a diagnostic thats what Im going to do next week.
good luck!!!

Doesnt start after throttle body installation


If it cranks but wont fire then your wiring to throtle body is up the duff. If it doesnt cense that it is there then the computer wont let it start.

My car ran fine i parked it for about 3 to 4 months now it wont crank


Sounds like your battery went "south". Try jump starting it or charge battery and see if it holds a charge.

My car wont crank its turning over but wont fire i cant here the fuel pump when i turn the key the car ran fine and then i parked it for a few months and now it wont start


Charge battery? How cold/ hot was it when parked? could have water i oil that could seaze pistons, put a little oil down spark plug holes and leave 4 couple days. Try cranking by hand with bar and socket on main pulley. Have rodents eaten your wiring? Have seen this and it wasnt preety or cheap.

Have a 2000 eclipse it will turn over but wont start i think it may be a sensor, which one?


While cranking the engine over check for spark, then after cranking over for 5 Sec. or so remove a plug or two and check for gas in the cylinders. This will help you narrow it down.

Thanks,
Tom

Change a crankshaft position sensor on a 2000 eclipse


Is this a V6 or 4cyl???>>>(V6) This requires removing the Harmonic balancer (crankshaft pulley). Remove (R) front wheel, remove engine splash Guard, Remove crank pulley, remove lower timing belt cover. The Crank sensor is located behind the crank shaft pulley!! I highly recommend having this done by a certified tech, requires special tools. Hopefully this helps!!

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.
