Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Car struggles to go when gas is pressed.

When i step on the gas pedal, the car struggles and sounds like a muscle car when i try to accelerate, before it was a nice smooth sound coming from the muffler, now it sounds like rumbling coughing and spitting noises.

I just had my muffler/exhaust system changed at a garage. Before I brought the car in it was loud, but otherwise ran fine. Since I picked my car up I have noticed that now it struggles to reach cruising...


first of all , i would say check your oil pressure.second i would take a look at your oil pan and the screw that holds it together.because some times they put them on too tight scripping them,that can make it do most of the things you described above.or if its not tight enough,it could do the same. i hope i was helpful in some way. good luck
