Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The car won't stay running. We fully charged and replaced the battery...I have no idea what to do...
What you have is PROBABLY a bad Idle Air Control stepper motor... if the car stays running with your foot on the gas, and only dies when you let your foot OFF the gas... or if it dies when you shift (again, cause you foot is off the gas) that is definitely the problem. The stepper motors are kind of pricey (over $300) at the dealership, but you should be able to get one from an auto parts store for 150 or so. easy as heck to replace, it has three 8MM bolts into the throttle body, just unplug it, unscrew the bolts, and put the new one in... just be sure to be careful with the new o-ring... DON'T LOSE IT! :)
