Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse
My car just got a p1494 code. I know the code is for evap ventaliation switch or mechanical fault but how do i fix it? what am I looking for? please help I have not had any help solving this problem
I have a 1997 mitsubishi eclipse rs 2.0L non turbo
P1494 code can cause by EGR lift sensor.
When the engine is cold,disconnect the EGR sensor connector and clean the contacts.
Reconnect the EGR connector and reset code.
If the code does come back then I will clean the carbon under the EGR valve (or replace it)/
the EGR air passage MUST be clean also.
Please order a EGR base gasket before you start this job.
It's very time consuming but it preventive you must do.
This should free up the movement on the EGR.
I will ran a FULL TANK of Chevron gas to clean out the injector also.
Reset the code and you should be fine.
Please post more information on the comment window.

Hello. One way to check if it is working is when you try to start the car does the needle move on you tac? If not then your crank sensor is more then likely the problem. It is located on the backside of the engine under the intake manifold. If is in about the center of the block. There will be a 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. If you decide to change it yourself (not to terrible of a job) unplug the sensor, remove the bolt and spin it back and forth slightly while pulling it out. It may be stoburn and you might have to work at it for a little bit (not a done of room) but it will come. When it's out the sensor will be shaped kind of like an L. I have changed a few of these over time and they can be a little stoburn. To install just reverse the process.
