Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
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.

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.

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.
