1996 Eclipse 2.0 starts but dies after warming up

I have a 1996 Eclipse that starts up fine, but after a few minutes of running the engine it starts to sputter and cuts off. It then wont start up for at least an 30 minutes.

Sound like a sensor problem, MAP or IAT sensor or coolant sensor. They all have to do with temperature. If you have a check engine light on it'll be easier just to have it scanned at an auto-parts store like Autozone. Then you can find out which sensor is responsible. In your vehicle I think the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) and the IAT (intake are temperature) are combined into one sensor. Have the car scanned at Autozone they do it for free. If no problem detected see which sensor is easiest to replace and do so. If you still have a problem replace the other sensor. After that if you still have a problem take it to a shop you might have a fuel problem or something more complicated. If you want more tips on troubleshooting the problem leave a post.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

We have a 96 2.0 eclipe. runs great till warms up then dies. has new fuel pump & coil pk. please help


Well you should not guess it can be costly!you should have a check engine light on. So you should have a OBD 2 scan done to retreve you fault code to fix your problem.However your problem is most likely"""most likey a Bank 1 O2 sensor the one in the engine manifold before the cadilac converter sounds like it is stuck in midrange! These 2.l are 'famous' for it soon as it cools down for a minute starts runs for a minute then shuts off corect!
