Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

It acts like it is loading up when you give it the gas, but not all the time. The check engine light is on and the test for it i was told that it had to do with the catalytic converter.

Try unpluging then repluging in your TPS (throttle position sensor) its located on the end of your intake. it reads the position of your throttle and works with your ECM, and the O2 sensors to control your air/fuel mixture. if its running rich and not burning off all the gas it would also throw off your O2 sensor that is attached to the front of your catalytic converter. sometimes these sensors get gummed up and they send inacurate information to the ECM.

97 gmc acted like had bad gas but now also at idle with brake on engine will surge and engine sounds like it s missing

Hi Allen, The brake booster is connected to the intake manifold and that is where the low pressure is generated. If the diaphragm or one way valve, or connection pipe is leaking it will give the same effect as a leakage on the intake manifold. The symptoms you report are of a leakage on the intake manifold. To prove one way or another, disconnect the vacuum pipe for the booster and block the connection into the intake manifold. Be careful when testing as you will need to use excessive force on the brake pedal to stop. If the symptoms disappear fit a new booster, if not, pour water along the manifold and observe any bubbles where there may be a leakage. Let me know how you get on. Regards John

1998 Mystique wont start, ignition turns over but acts like it's not getting gas.

Does the check engine light go OUT while cranking? If not , if it stays ON, you've got a bad crankshaft position sensor. These can fail with intermittent no starts. So just when you have it towed it, it'll start working again. Check engine light is supposed to go OUT if it's getting good signal from the sensor.

Turns over but acts like it's getting no gas

Possibly check valve in fuel pump is allowing the fuel back into the gas tank

Turn ignition key to ON so the dashboard lights are lit for 5 or 10 seconds,
then CRANK the engine.

This will allow the fuel time to get back to the engine. May take several tries.

Known problem, friend was recently told new pump would have to be installed $500+, decided a few extra seconds to start car once in a while was better option.

The engine light is on because the car is telling you that something is wrong. It is putting out codes and you need a diagnostic tool to check for the solution.

Best not to ignore the check engine light because it also can indicate a serious running problem just as it is indicating a pollution problem now. I don't trust folks that have 'snap' answers for a given problem without any kind of testing (the fuel cap). This problem can be caused by split vent hoses or fuel filler hose, sensors that leak or read incorrectly--the list goes on. Smoke generator tests can help track this down but require intelligent analysis to replace or repair the correct component. Finding someone like this to take the time to be at least fairly sure of a cure before loading the car up with unnecessary parts is a rare find. Good luck!

My automatic car acts like it is going to stall

Definitely sounds like a fuel problem. I'd change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If pump is running it could still be partially clogged. Try a fuel rail pressure test with a knowledgeable mechanic.

Wanting to stall at all speeds

It sounds like a electrical problem to me. Like the ignition control module. It can be tested at your local auto parts stores.

Is this a V6 VQ35 or 4 cylinder QR25?? If the check engine light is flashing the car is not running on all cylinders. Misfire detected by the ECM/computer. The code for the check engine light is going to be misfire code, that will tell you which cylinder misfired. Need more info as to which powertarin you have (V6 or 4 cylinder) They both have their own bugs. Let me know. Oh. and how many miles on it also.
