Where is the fuel filter located on a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0 L DOHC (420A) engine?


HI. The fuel filter is located in the engine compartment, mounted to the firewall. Extraction will be easier if the air inlet hose and upper air cleaner housing is removed from the vehicle. This will expose the filter and allow for a better extracting experience.

97 Eclipse has bad idle, help?


This really sounds like a vaccum leak at the intake. Just spray a bit of starting fluid at the intake manifold, with the engine at idle. You will hear a change in the engine. Replace necessary gaskets.

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.

2003 Mitsibushis Eclipse GS won't start?


If the timing belt is broken, chances are you would hear the pistons banging into the open valves as the engine turned over (broken timing belt means cam is not turning, and some valves will be open.).

Please reply what led up to the engine not starting, from the last time that the engine ran.

My 1999 Eclipse gs engine light came on, DTC P1390.


P1390 - Timing belt skipped one tooth or more.


the engine is an interference engine so if the timing belt skipped, it should be fixed before starting the engine again. otherwise you run the risk of bend/break valves from piston to valve contact
