I have a 95 eclipse and had the same problem. Replaced the coil, plugs, wires. I had it taken to 3 garages before I found out. It's a problem with the anti-theft system. I don't have the exact location, but the guy who finally found out the problem said it was under the front bumper. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I know how puzzling the problem is. I spent a good 700 dollars and 4 months on two "I don't know"s and a little under $200 to actually get it fixed.

No fire comes from crank sensor and cam sensors but their are 2 sometimes 3 sensors hooked on the firewall right above the battery change those they also will keep one from starting.

The car doesnt start, its not the carburator or the fuel pump. i think it might be the distibutor cap but im not sure.


Get you a spark tester at the part store and hook it to a plug wire and see if it is getting a spark there about 8$ or you could stick a screwdriver in the plug and lay it down somewhere so it dont shock you and let someone crank it over and see if there is a spark or lol you could do like me and hold the plug wire while someone cranks it for just a sec. it will shock you though.If it is firing.if no fire could be your coil to

Swapped a 1999 420A engine into a 1995 eclipse (also a 420A) and we have no spark. We started by checking the cam sensor and it is working properly it is upside down from the 95 but the ASD relay is...


first the cam sensor shouldn't be upside down from the 95. they both should be with the plug facing down. they 95 CAS has a different plug than the 99 CAS.
the 95 has round pins and the 99 has flat pins.

also the 95-96 relays are opposite the 97-99

besides that it could be the ecu. i also have heard of the locating pin on the intake cam shearing off, allowing the gear to turn with the timing belt without the actual camshaft spinning.

Mitsubishi Eclipse 1995 no start, but cranks


no back-firing or anything like that. Double check firing order and how about your plugs/in good shape? How old is the plug wiring? Does the Eclipse have cam senors? If so, I would check them.

I have a 96 eclipse.that was overfilled w/oil new sparkplugs and wires,air filter,and oil changed.now it runs fine for about a mile then it acts like it is running out of gas and dies.wait bout 5min...


check your distributor cap to make sure no oil got in there also check your fuel pressure regulator to see if its a normal pressure any shop can tell you what it should be so just call and ask the fuel pressure tester is about 45 dollars at autozone

4th cylinder misfire in '96 eclipse rs(5 speed if it makes a dif)


There may be a problem with the coil pack causing this misfire or the timing is off enough to cause late or early firing of the plug.

When I shift my 96 camaro from it starts shaking and no power.


The "blinking" service engine light is indicating an over fueling problem that can damage the catalytic converter.
You will need to have the codes read to narrow the problem down.
I would suggest you not drive the vehicle as you may cause unnecessary damage to the emission system (convertor) and added expense to repair.
Good luck.
Let me know.
Regards,

Sounds like either a bad plug wire, or coil pack. This is about all that would cause the misfire.

96 eclipse need more info..


This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016
