Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
My car will not start the first few times that I turn over the Key. It struggles to start and finally it works. When ever I slow down, the engine seems to stall and my powersteering locks up and my lights in my dashboard light up. When ever I am slowing down or stopped at a light, the car locks up and I have to turn it on and off a few times to get it to work again.
It just started to do with last night. But before while I was waiting at a stop light or sign, my little oil pan light would flicker on and off, but I had just changed my oil so no clue what to do
The oil light began to flicker beacuse of low oil pressure with the lower RPM I expect. Four things for your engine to run: 1, Spark, 2, fuel 3, compression and lastly the timing.
While running at higher RPM how well (or poorly) does the engine run?
This may be as simple as a clogging fuel filter, low pressure = poor fuel stream which = poor performance.
May be the fuel pump failing too.
Other ideas; starved for air, very dirty air filter?
Also corld be crank, cam or MFA sensor too. Sart easy with the fuel filter and work from there.
If I may be of additional help, please let me know.
