Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

2001 mitsubishi eclipse gs has 0 (zero) "go" power

It barely starts, when I try to rev the engine, it doesn't go above 3000 even with the pedal floored. When driving I have to pump the gas pedal just to try to get some rpms and speed. It idles like crappy-crappy, *******.(<----Thats a technincal term btw, LOL)I know there is an exhaust leak up front because I can hear it(sounds like ffftt-ffftt-ffftt-ffftt). I changed the spark plugs a month ago and put those super-duper hella-holy-**** sparkers on there, brand new battery, and an oil change with 50/50 synthetic.

Sounds like fuel filter or pump.

SOURCE: Stalls when at idle after changing battery

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

SOURCE: Changing the front speaker 2001 Eclipse Spyder

There are 7 screws all together to remove the door pannel. First, you have to take off the hanlde for the door. the 2 plastic covers on the handle pop off revealing 2 screws on the top and bottom, remove those. then behind the the door handle on the inside, pull it as if you were to open it and there is a screw that you have to remove. Then there are 2 screws on either side of the door pannel, both are farily close to the top, remove those, and then its just a matter of popping the pannel off. start from the bottom, pop it off then slide it up. becarefull, after the door panel is free, there is a connection for the power doors and windows unhook that then the pannel will be free. after that the speaker will be right there and its common sense on removing that. good luck.

If i'm not mistaken the light beside the battery sign is the check engine light. this lights up if anything under the hood is not functioning the way it should. Unfortunately i cannot be more specific on this. It just means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your gas cap could be too loose (no kidding).

Well as you've mention your oil is dropping at a very fast rate then its a good place to start checking. You can check if your oil seals are ok and might as well check all the filters...oil filters, fule filters air filters.

Hope i have answered your question. Goodluck!

SOURCE: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.

I had the same exact problem over the weekend. We decided to go cheap first and replace the Oil Pressure Switch. It's like $6.00 at Auto Zone here in Texas. (don't know if you are from the states). It ended up being the switch. It's located right by the oil filter and it's very easy to change. Just make sure you have a wrench or deep socket bigger than 15/16. I think we used a 1 inch wrench.

If it's not the switch, its most likely the oil pump, but don't forget to check the hose, it could be bent or crimped.

Hope this helps :D

Self reving


Clean your IAC, throttle body, MAF sensor, intake and manifold. Check throttle cables, loosen or tighten as needed. Check for vacuum leaks, they will cause a rev sometimes.
