Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

1 Answer

I've been driving the car for a while and it's been doing fine. I've checked all the fluids and everything is topped off. But when I turn on the heat, headlights, and if I lower the top the brake and

I checked the alternator and it's working. I think it might be either the battery or the computer. The top of the car is leaking, and since the computer is under the passenger seat I was wondering if that may be the source of my problem.

Maybe. The battery light means the alternator is not charging the battery. Its possible the computer is disabling the alternator when the light is on. Of course it could be a problem with the brake fluid or parking brake but I assume you have checked those already.

Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

Is your radiator fluid up where it should be? Low fluid will do this.

My 95 Corsica Temp gauge keeps heading hard for the hot zone, between 3/4 and over heat, then dropping back to 1/4 totally at random. Fan definitely goes on. Topped off all fluids, changed oil and fil

You need to bleed it. Leave the radiator cap off, start it up and when the thermostat opens it should push out bubbles out through the radiator, if the water level drops in the raditor then top it up. When you can't see any more air bubbles, close the radiator cap.
If this doesn't help then it could be the thermostat.

My car stopped working wont start after running fine,turns over good!

Don't know what kind of car, what year, what engine, how many miles, etc., and that would make this easier, but here goes........check and see if your timing belt is broken. If it turns over faster than normal, that is a possible sign. But take cover off the cam pulley on top and you can see it turn(depending on your car.)

Will not engage in reverse

Check the fluid level and condition.
If fluids low, top off.
if fluid is okay, then try the cheapest fix, changing the fliud and filter.
Last week, buddy of mine had the same problem. We racked out brains, checked everything. We tried changing his fluid (ATF) and it was like syrup. Truck works fine now.

Before the fluid change though, check all linkages to the transmission. Maybe something isn't right there. It wouldn't make total sense, due to it having to go through reverse to get to drive anyways, but it wouldn't hurt to look!

Hope this helps.

Heating and over heating

if you smelled rad fluid then chances are you have a leak, you didnt say if you had to top it up at all, low fluid level will cause loss of heat, and the overheat prob sounds like thermastat replacement time, i would start with the thermastat
