If your Eclipse has the serpentine belt set up, the problem of the belt failing may be due to a worn belt tensioner, or tensioner pulley or a worn idler pulley. If the tensioner arm fluctuates a great deal when the engine is running, it's probably worn out and it is not providing the approprate tension on the belt.

SOURCE: mitsubishi eclipse convertiable timing belt change?

Typical timing belt intervals are every 60k miles. It's a very involved service to do the whole job - timing belt, timing belt tensioner, serpentine or accessory belts, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, brake and suspension inspection, and tire rotation. On many cars it's recommended to change the oxygen sensors as well. Quite a bit of this can be done when you want, but the first five items are critical and should all be done. And regardless of whether your manufacturer says the coolant is "lifetime", replace it - don't reuse coolant. It's cheap and it's good practice to use new coolant.

The best thing to do is go down to your local automotive store and buy a repair manual for your car. It will take you through the process better then what can be explained here and it has pictures to help you as well. I have a 97 GS and the book has been invaluable.

SOURCE: Stalls when at idle after changing battery

When you changed the battery the computer must re-learn the setting again. If it continues have a OBD II reader plugged in and check for codes.

97 mitsubishi eclipse spyder 5 speed overheating


Sounds like you lost your drive belt on the vehicle. Check to see if you still have a drive belt. Without a drive/serpentine belt you will get exactly what you have described. I'm just guessing but this is the first thing I would check. Hope it's something that simple for you and that you didn't get your engine too hot and I was able to help.

Probably when you installed new belt you caused the timing to be off and now your camshaft sensor wont allow car to run.

Can an average home mechanic change the alternator on a 2001 eclipse. 4 cyc not turbo


I'd say it depends if anything else has to be removed to get at it. Other than that, if you have the tools, you can do it. Most accessory/drive belts are easily removed nowadays because they use a spring loaded tensioner pulley. The alternator is pretty straight forward, tape the wires as you remove them one-at-a-time to show you where to put them back.
Make sure before you remove the drive belt you make a good diagram or take a picture of how it exactly goes, many people get this far and run into the problem of how to route the belt.

Screeching sound from engine


I can pretty guarantee you it is your altrnator belt.. By turning on your headlights, it creates more load on the alternator, which in turn makes the belt work harder. To confirm, you can try some silicone spray on the belt. The noise should change or disappear. This happens a lot in winter when dirt gets on the belts.
Usually that will solve it. If not, you may have to get the belt changed.
Good luck,
