Question about 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I need to know what could be wrong with my automatic DSM. When you put it in reverse, nothing happens, the motor just revs up. But if you put the car in drive and then in reverse then it will back up. When you push on the gas and it goes to downshift it will rev up and then catch and go faster. It has a rebuilt tranny in it, by the best guy in our county of 437,000 people. I have been thinking about the Torque convertor, could that be doing this, could it be an electrical problem. I checked the 10 amp 4A/T fuse and it was good but i dont know what could the problem be. Thanks so much -Heylookitsbret-

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

I just went through the same problem this year twice. My car started smoking some, and I notice a trial of fluid on the road both times. I'm not sure but my car problems may have started when I got my Transmission flushed.
My car has 100,000 miles and I drive my car pretty hard.
I was first told the torque converter went out. Then I was told the Fuel pump needed to be changed. After being without a car for threes months, I just brought a new transmission and had it shipped to the shop.
From researching online, I think the fragile "Wave spring" in the transmission needs to be replaced and the new version of the "Wave Spring" is a solid & thick metal ring.
Secondly, the Mechanic will need a alignment tool to put the transmission back together properly. The tool is called Sonnex or made by the company I think.
Let me know what you find out.
Also only use Transmission fluid for Mitsubishi Eclipse only.
1. Torque Converter
2. Transmission "Wave Spring" broken pieces of the wave spring may damage other parts as it flows through the system or the fuel pump I think.

I suggest you to replace the Torque converter but before to do it check the your Idle air control valve operation.
