    Does it die if your are driving? Also does it stutter while running?

Check maf sensor and throttle body, intake leaks downstream of the maf. Could also be a clogged injector or fuel filter. If you have some carbon buildup a can of Seafoam in the gastank will help. Also would be a possible failing throttle position sensor
Please kindly let me know if the information was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

How to replace a ecm


241 F = 116.5 C so the engine is at or past boiling point
It is possible that the engine coolant temp sensor is what is shutting down the engine through the ECM
the engine starts and runs which doesn't make the ECM , the fault but it can be tested by the substitution of a known good ECM unit
There is a method of reading fault codes for the vehicle so it would be advisable to get them read professionally first

Car quit running at red light


Your no start condition is either lack of fuel(doubtful since it used to restart) or no spark. No spark could be from a failed crankshaft or camshaft sensor.

Mitsubishi spyder cranks but can't start, it has spark and fuel pump runs but do not know pressure psi.


sounds like a bad ignition module if your pressure reads out good, if you have spark and no start it most likely is this since it takes the signal from the distributor and sends it to the injectors and the spark coil get a reading on that pressure first though

My 2007 Eclipse Spyder is not starting everytime. It sounds like it's flooded or something. i just don't know. All the lights come on inside, power is working, so i dont' think it's the battery. It's just...


myriad of things it could be...Has it ever been tuned up? How many miles are on it? All gasoline powered cars have to have fuel air and spark, so one of these is the problem in some way. How does it run once it gets started?

2003 Mitsubish Eclipse GST Spyder alarm goes off for no reason at all. If you hit the unlock button it quits, but it might go off again at some random time.


I HAVE A SPYDER ALSO. ALTHOUGH, I HAVE NEVER HAD THAT ISSUE, THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET THE ALARM TO STAY OFF WITHOUT GOING OFF AGAIN IS BY INSERTING THE KEY INTO THE DRIVER'S SIDE DOOR. THAT RESETS IT PROPERLY.
