Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

1997 eclipse, Chrysler 2.0 dohc engine package. Car started up fine, one morning, it began sounding like it had a problem running, like spitting extra fuel or not getting enough airflow, kind of a boggy feel. After cleaning the throttle body and intake manifold temperature sensor, the car started up fine. Ran for about 3 weeks after that and is now doing the sane thing. This time I scraped the throttle body clean, used mass airflow sensor cleaner and 1 of 2 sensors attached to intake manifold. On of the sensors, one closest to the mounted part of the throttle flap, I could not get to unscrew. So I was unable to tinker with it, but basicly after this I'm still having issues. Any ideas? These problems did not start until the weather began getting cold.

SOURCE: 02 sedona hard time starting and mass airflow sensor issues

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: ENGINE VIBRATION AT IDLE BUT OK WHILE DRIVING.

Could be any one, or more, of the following -

Plugged injector
Bad plug wire
Fouled plug
Crossed plug wires (hard to tell sometimes on V-8s that run smooth anyway)
Vacuum leak
Leaky EGR valve
Shifted timing sensor

Scan engine for codes and proceed from there.

There is a product called RXP (available here in Texas) that will clean up an engine and gas. Its pretty awesome stuff, and this coming from a person who doesn't really believe in additives.

some weeks ago i had similar problems with my 2001 s60,i cleaned the etm and fitted a front o2 sensor ,its now idling at around 800 and driving fine.You could try changing the o2 sensor-but remember the earlier etms are troublesome and it may be a big part of your problem,the cleaning can work in only some cases

Higher octane gas 93 with some good octane boost in the black can at autozone cost about 7 dollars or a bottle of 104 octane boost. Change the fuel filter. Probably only one coil pack is bad. The OBDII reader should tell you which one was a misfire.

Car dies going down highway hard to start afterwards it is a 1997 gs eclipse. what could be causing this


assuming the starter is good and the engine turn over fine but will not fire or run. when the car die, check why is it so hard to start. check if you getting sparks and fuel, no sparks check coil and wires,and if both are good than the cam sensor is bad, no fuel, check the fuel pump, pump good check the crank sensor.
