Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

I am having problems with my 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse GS. Its a 4 cyl. and the fuel filler neck is damaged but cant afford to buy new one. Is there anyway to fix it to get me by so I can fill my tank up without losing gas. Another problem I am having is my gas pedal is sticking. It gets stuck when I let off the gas and keeps going and I can pull the gas pedal back up with my foot to get it to idle somewhat normal but it will get stuck when I put in park and starts to idle higher. what can I do until I can get the new throttle body cable. I have tried wd-40 and it works one time and after that it goes back to doing it again.

Those can both be safety hazards and should be fixed as soon as possible. Not only will a broken filler tube let gas out but it can let other stuff in, possibly causing other issues. And spilling gas/fumes is a fire hazard. The throttle cable sticking could cause an accident. I've changed one for the same problem on an older Honda Accord. It was a little aggravating but not too difficult for anyone mechanically inclined. The gas filler tube may be a little more involved depending on how it's fitted in the car.

SOURCE: 1990 eclipse gs turbo starts & idles wont go past 2500rpms

you have a boostleak, i build gsx's my roommate owns 4g63 power, give me your email er cell and i will send you a boost leak detector you hook up to the turbo inlet and shoot pressurized air into it and if you have a boostleak it will leak out of the engine somewhere that is your leak you replace the seal or hose and blauw the car is fixed, hook me up with blue feedback since im going this far out of my way. the reason you cant get past 2500rpm is because unmeetered air is being let in post maf sensor and the ecu is trying to richen up the engine which is causing the black smoke and probably a strong smell of fuel. my current dsm is the 9th one ive owned =) they break alot lol easy fix though.

SOURCE: 3 gallons of diesel were inadvertently poured into

Hi, you're going to want to purge the system from the fuel rail. This is most easily done by removing the fuel return line from the tank or from the fuel pressure regulator and adding a hose there to guide the fuel into a container. Then you can run the fuel pump and the fuel will pass thru the system all the way around the fuel rail and out the return port of the regulator. If the pump does not stay on, you can either cycle the key or jump the relay (connect terminals 1 and 3 of the relay socket) to keep it running. Once you have done this, the only diesel fuel remaining is the syste, is a thimbleful at each injector manifold port. This will pass thru after cranking the engine for a few minutes. You might want to hold the throttle wide open while cranking. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander It starts to leak gas when it hits about 3/4 full could it be tank or filler neck and how can I see the problem

I would say tank. If the filler neck was leaking, it would be doing it the entire time you fill up. Get it fixed ASAP- that can be a serious fire hazard.

Dodge grand caravan 2005 filler neck replacement

1)Block front wheels.
2)Jack up the left rear tire off of the ground.
3)Put blocks up under the frame.
4)Take off the left rear tire.
5)Take out the plastic liner in the fender well that covers the fuel filler neck.
6)Loosen up the hose clamps on the rubber fuel filler hoses. (at the neck side); once the clamps are off plan on buying new ones. This next part of the job is VERY IMPORTANT! use a flat screwdriver and pry 360 degrees all around the rubber filler neck hoses. (they get kinda glued on from being on there so long). Next Get some PB Blaster lube or WD-40 (it has to have the small red squirt hose) and spray the lube up in between the hoses while you pry around. the more you do this the easyer it will be to pull the metal filler neck pipe out.
7)Now its time to take out the 4 bolts that hold the pipe on.
Use a 10mm socket and extension to take out 4 bolts up top behind the fuel filler door.
8)Pull the filler neck out and put everything back together the way it came apart and your done!

Replacing fuel filler neck on 2000 Crown Vic

Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.

Help me fixed this car, 2000 Eclipse GS

hey--it could any of the below:
1. low transmission fluid
2. internal transmission wear - probably time for an overhaul or some kind of rebuilding
If the RPMS DON T RISE - like the engine is bogging down and does not have the power to move the car faster I would suspect
1. a lack of fuel supply - like a weak fuel pump or a restriction in the fuel filter 2. restriction in the exhaust system like a catalytic converter or muffler 3. an engine sensor is out of whack - which will require the use of a computer scanner to read the computer memory
