Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse

2002 eclipse. starts but when stopped wont start again

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.

SOURCE: 98 eclipse Engine stall but stars

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.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi Eclipse Harmonic Balancer 3.0L Removal

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...

SOURCE: Location of thermostat 2003 Mitsubetsi Eclipse 4

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.

Where is the fuel pump relay at on my 2002 eclipse? car will start and run good till you turn it off and try to restart it and wont start.... or will start and run 2 seconds and die.... fuel pump? relay?


relay is the problem if it dies in seconds after starting. Mitsubishi will show you exactly were it is if no body else does. Sorry I do not work on this model although all cars have a fuel pump relay and operates the same way

2002 mitsubishi 6 cyl will start and run fine until you turn it off then it wont restart. now wont start at all. did this several times until it wont start at all. cam sensor??? or fule system problem?


The most neglected part in this system is the battery. Have your battery tested for retaining the charge, some of the cells can fail and your battery will not retain the charge, even after a long drive.

Try starting it with a booster battery, if your problem disappears, you just need a new one.

Hope this helps.
