Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Hi~ My 2000 Mithubishi eclipse worked perfectly. But it suddenly died a few days ago, then I sent it to a shop, they told me it's a starter problem, so I let them fix it, which takes me almost $350. After that, the car can be started, but the "service engine soon" and "SRS" lights came out. The car shakes a lot when change gears, and the transmission keeps rotate in very high speed. I asked them to check the error code, they are 705, 715, 720, all related to transmission. I don't know why, they insist that fixing the starter doesn't do anything with transmission. They recommend me to another transmission shop, I spent 120 dollars for the diagnostic only. They told me it's the problem of inhibitor switch. thank god, it's cheap..
My question is: is there any chance that when they fix the starter , they cause the inhibitor problem? ? since everything is fine until they fix the starter... Thanks!!

does this car have a safety device that won't let you start the engine unless the clutch is pushed in???
if so that little switch on the clutch pedal could be faulty.

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

There are several types of O2 Sensor codes. There can be "Lean O2 Sensor" codes, "Rich O2 Sensor" codes, "O2 Sensor Slow Response" codes, or "O2sensor Heater Circuit" codes. The specific code that is being set changes the way you must go about diagnosing and repairing the problem. I will say however, that in about 80% of all the O2 Sensor code problems that I have had to diagnose, the O2 Sensor itself was NOT the problem. The O2 Sensor was only reporting a problem that was actually caused elsewhere. O2 Sensors are the final checkpoint in the engine management system. I think of them like a report card. If the O2 Sensors are right, the rest of the engine management system is right. If the O2 Sensors are not right, the rest of the engine management system is probably not right. (Except in the 20% of the cases where the problem is actually being caused by a failed O2 Sensor)
