Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse
This is a 2002 Mitsubishi eclipse with four cyl engine. 2.4 L. The problem started when driving and stop to do errands, the car will not start again, it cranked but sounds like it would run but never get to get it started. If I left it for some hours it will start right up and run as long as I wanted and will not show any signs of a problem, but again once I stopped the car it will or it will not start again, I suspect is the crank sensor.
When the car is presenting the problems, it seems like the timing belt is in wrong spot, since it kinds of starts but the engine brakes and wont start. I could die the battery if I continue trying to start it.

Sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor needs to be replaced. If you are driving on the Interstate/freeway/highway for a bit and then get off, the car dies when your coming to a stop right?

its a very common fault with the GDi engine, normally first shows a fault after 60k miles. Fault will also make the engine feel slightly juddery on occasions whilst cruising... either/both Accelerator body or Cam sensor are the usual culprit. Both can be rather expensive.

There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...

The thermostat is found at the end of the top radiator hose . Find the top radiator hose and follow it to the engine .There you will find a thermostat housing with the end of the hose attached . There will be 2 bolts holding down the housing to the engine. Undo the bolts and pull the housing off and the thermostat will be there.
