Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
I have a 2000 mitsubishi eclipse gt 3.0L V6. Service engine light is on and gives off codes P0170 and P0173. I dont know what caused it but i had a mechanic do a tune up replacing spark plugs and wires as well as putting in valve cover gaskets and since then the problem uprose. When reached at normal temp the engine revs up and down constantly. HELP!!!
The shop failed to do basic preventative maintenance
such as scan the systems,look at data & possibly road test
The vehicle is a 2000 year you ask about oxygen sensors
& when they were replaced & look at mileage They get changed
at 100,000 miles
You got idle issues
What happened there? They let that go also
Google any codes you get
OBD PO171 etc
I would find a different shop
Tune-Up is no more than spark plugs & that
is preventative maintenance
You don't do a tune-up for a problem
You do spark plugs every 3 years & then you know
when they were done last & proceed to diagnose the
These shops will do & sell what ever you ask & then some
to stay in business
They fail to really check your vehicle over completely
you can't install spark plugs & throw on wires you don't need
& expect that to do a thing as far as knowing how the vehicle
is operating.there electronically controlled & need those systems also
