Sounds like a problem with a weak sensor and the computer. You need to get your mechanic to code the car as to rule out any problems with the computer or the sensors. Your car is about the right year for those sensors to start getting weak. When the computer reads those sensors that then sets things. So if the sensor is getting weak, it would not be reading things right so your car would be not running so good. I would be looking at the Throttle Position Sensor. If after coding the car and nothing show up there. I would be checking for a vacuum leak they will often cause this problem. And one more thing when is the last time you did a good tune up on the car? Stark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor? Air filter might be something to look into too. I hope this helps and good luck!

I have a Mitsubishi eclipse '03 my brake & battery

You would need to check the wiring and fuses to see if anything is blown or melted. The warning light is for both hydraulic brakes and the charging system.
In your case the light probably came on because the alternator stopped charging the battery.

My car isnt taking off the way its suppose to? it might be the gear oil but i dont know were it is? its a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Low gear oil wont affect engine performance, unless excessive heat has warped something in your differential and its binding. Is the vehicle hard to accelerate as well as it brakes quickly once you stop accelerating. If not, you likely have a different problem. What led you to gear oil, is there noise in your differential. Gear oil is just what it says Oil for the gears. when it runs low they can overheat, but they should get noisy if the oil is low enough not to lubricate and the telltale heavy oil should be all over underneath your engine and transmission in front wheel drive and all over your differential in rear wheel drive

Oil light comes on 2001 Eclipse

I think you ought to change your oil, and when you do that, buy a can of Seafoam that can be found at your local auto store and dump it down the hole where the oil goes so it can get all in the crank case. If you see white smoke for a little bit dont freak out, its just carbon build up thats burning off. Also have your timing checked.

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?
