Maybe the carbon cannister is loaded up. Try parking the car facing uphill and see if that's better.

Starter is probably OK. Need more symptoms. OR it will be 20 question time. Takes a LONG time cranking B-4 the engine begins to run? That's what I'm guessing.

Does nothing to take the key back out and try it again.Just keep cranking until the engine starts to run.Don't be afraid to crank it for 15 seconds,or so.

    I had the same problem with mine, Replace your camshaft position sensor, air filter, and spark plugs.

Installing push rod Mitsubishi Eclipse

The engine is a overhead cam engine so no push rods are fitted
the first thing to check will be the starter motor solenoid then the starter motor for operation
anything else will require the engine to be removed to check the timing and why the engine won't crank

My 1998 eclipse gst is very very hard too start and when it does start it back fires and the engine shakes very bad ..what could it be?

When was the last time you had your engine tuned up? Could be out of time. Have a mechanic change your wires, plugs and rotor and then check the timing.

My 2001 Eclipse will on occasion not crank over when turning the key. The battey V is fine, the lights come on. After a few key turns (a couple of "dead" turns) the car will start right up.

Sounds like a bad connection between your starter relay and starter. Check your connection at the battery post, the starter relay and the cable for the starter. Loosen and re-tighten these. It could be a simple corrosion keeping the connection unstable.

Car dies going down highway hard to start afterwards it is a 1997 gs eclipse. what could be causing this

assuming the starter is good and the engine turn over fine but will not fire or run. when the car die, check why is it so hard to start. check if you getting sparks and fuel, no sparks check coil and wires,and if both are good than the cam sensor is bad, no fuel, check the fuel pump, pump good check the crank sensor.

1996 mitsubishi eclipse doesn't start when turning the key. had the starter tested, it was good. all the dash lights come on like normal, but nothing happens. Battery is good and fully charged. Any ideas.

check for voltage at the small start wire on the starter when cranking the engine--you will need someone help. If there is no voltage you may have a bad neutral safety switch ,which is on the trany have an automatic trans i assume.
If so try putting in neutral when cranking.

Like the sound made when a battery is bad (but it was just replaced)

I would have the new battery checked just because it`s new doe`nt mean it could`nt be bad

The car will not start sometimes. It turns over but will not start. Note: I know when it will not start when the check engine light fails to come on when first turning the key over. (Replaced ASD relay and...

I had this same issue a few years back with my 2000 MItsubishi Eclipse. I was told the starter relay needed to be switched out. It has happened more than once, so I keep an extra starter relay in my car so I can switch them out if needed. It had also looked as if the starter relay had melted.
