Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I was told it could possibly be the tranny filter or my brakes grabbing but it only does it every once in a while and its a violent jump as if the engine is locking up but then it keeps running and has no problems idling.
Brakes just don't do this. This is what people will say - ABS system playing up: to me this just does not seem likely the ABS system is designed to stop lock-ups. Then others will say it is your master cylinder - My experience is more that when these fail they make it hard for you to break. Air in the line usually is a soft pedal and once again no brakes. Stick with me here - For the brakes to work they need fluid pressure - how can fluid pressure build up to the point where it pushes the brakes on? I am thinking some very basic physics here - kinked lines these are not allowing the pressure to be fully released from the line system. I would check for kinked lines and I am also thinking that when you turn this may exasperate the line kinking.

sounds like the ignition barrel is starting to go the only thing really to do is either wait for it to completely die and then replace it or just replace it now

THE HIGH LOW IDLE MAY BE A SIGN OF A LOW COOLANT LEVEL.THE IDLE CIRCUIT IS CONTROLED BY ENGINE TEMP.AS FAR AS THE BATTERY.THE STARTER MAY BE DRAWING TO MANY AMPS.THERE MAY BE A DRAIN ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM W/THE KEY OUT.

Have a qualified technician check your brake calipers and your abs system This is nothing to fool around with, as if something is causing your brakes to come on without brake input, it could work the other way too! GET IT CHECKED OUT!
