Okay I have a 2002 Dodge stratus and recently the car just died out. So after gettin a tune up another problem occured where I had to replace the starter. Now with new spark plugs and a new starter the car...


I don't think the key has anything to do with it. Spray a little staring fluid in the throttle body while someone tries to start it. if it fires off, spray a small amount in it to keep it running. if it stops you know you have an issue with a fuel filter / pump or fuel regulator. Main thing is to be sure the gas is getting up to the engine.

97 lumina car runs great. today I ran it and when


No it doesn't have fuel. What test did you do.? The fuel filter is dirty or the fuel pump is mechanically bound once in awhile.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse automatic transmission wont go in gear and when you press on the gas the motor just revs. I have checked the tranny fluid and seems to be fine.


I just went through the same problem this year twice. My car started smoking some, and I notice a trial of fluid on the road both times. I'm not sure but my car problems may have started when I got my Transmission flushed.

My car has 100,000 miles and I drive my car pretty hard.

I was first told the torque converter went out. Then I was told the Fuel pump needed to be changed. After being without a car for threes months, I just brought a new transmission and had it shipped to the shop.

From researching online, I think the fragile "Wave spring" in the transmission needs to be replaced and the new version of the "Wave Spring" is a solid & thick metal ring.

Secondly, the Mechanic will need a alignment tool to put the transmission back together properly. The tool is called Sonnex or made by the company I think.

Let me know what you find out.

Also only use Transmission fluid for Mitsubishi Eclipse only.

1. Torque Converter
2. Transmission "Wave Spring" broken pieces of the wave spring may damage other parts as it flows through the system or the fuel pump I think.

I have and ford escort 1998 i have no idea whats wrong with it at first when you drived the car,you stop at a stop sign and when you go it works fine but it wont shift into gear. it just keeps running.i...


Had same issue today: as soon as I'd hit a stop sign or just stop it would go like it was on Neutral even though it was in Drive... I though it was the whole transsmition and was resigned to change it completely ($$$) but I took it to an honest mechanic and told me that the 1997 escorts need to be checked on with the hand brake and on Drive (make sure the brake is all the way up) it was missing like almost 1.5 ltrs of Trans. fluid =/ told me to add 1 ltr and to see if it'd stop... it did =D spent not 10 dlrs fixing it... ohh but my transmission fluid was pink going a lil brown sorry to say, you should have it changed along with the filter

My mechanic reccomends a tranmission flush?


USUALLY YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE TRANY FLUID EVERY 40,000 MILES. MORE OFTEN IF YOU LIVE IN A HOT AREA LIKE PHOENIX ARIZONA. YOU COULD HAVE PROBLEMS IF YOU CHANGE THE FLUID NOW. IT IS KIND OF A GAMBLE. IF YOU HAVEN'T DRIVEN YOUR CAR HARD YOU MORE THAN LIKELY WILL BE FINE. A GOOD INDICATOR OF THE OVERALL CONDITION IS TO CHECK THE FLUID AND DETERMINE HOW BURNED THE FLUID HAS BECOME. GOOD LUCK.
