Got a mitsubishi eclipse gt 2003 manual transmission. When the engine is warm and after like 1 hour of driving the rpm drops at 600rpm when stopped on a red light etc. and the car shakes. What could be the...


This could be due to your o2 sensor not giving a proper reading and offsetting the air/fuel mixture causing a low idle. Most vehicle have a loop setting so when the vehicle starts up it will run the air/fuel mixture at factory setting then once the temp senor heats up the o2 sensor will kick in and change the air/fuel mixture. You could also have an exhaust leak before your o2 sensor.

2002 Tundra, replaced battery, alternator was checked and is good, but engine cuts out when I slow down/break, and battery light comes on. Starts back up easily.


stop guessing, please.$$$$$
hot or cold engine, or both.
ever heard of engine stall? the rpm drops below 800 and stalls?
the engine rpm is KEY
post all symptoms, and we can fix it.
so far all i have is the hint of a stall or engine running at 300 rpm.
the alternator don't work at 300 rpm. at stall or near that.
your car dont have a tachometer? if it has one learn to watch it.
stalls are complex.
can be.
The engine PCM controls idle speed and Regulation at all times.
and is the LAST thing to work right, in EFI.

think of a juggler of bowling pins, a delicate balancing act.
so if the pins are slippery , he drop one, so easy.
EFI is Electronic fuel Injection (makes spark too , on gas engines..)

on EFI, idle fails (low) 800 is normal hot block, (look up yours. no engine options or size or cylinder counts stated)

the low RPM is caused by. many things. (i have a list of 50) so skip that....
1: too rich , too lean,. misfiring, DTCs set, ever scan the PCM YET?
2: EGR sticking open(clean it)
3: ISC (IAC electric) stuck closed, (again clean it)
4: never did the 60k mile tune up? if you did it would run ,if not the person doing it would tell you why it dont run right or even fix. it.
during a tune up , we check the ISC and EGR for filth and clean them.

now ill do the marco (physics answer)
1: bad engine, engine compression bad on 1 or more cylinders.
2: bad spark , tuneups fix this 99% of time, and work
3: bad fueling. (vastly complex. but most times bad inputs to ECU)

there are exceptions, but all land on #1 (stops engine from pumping air)

stop up fuel filter or fuel injection pump. pressure low.make sure air filter is not stopped up.diesel engine need to get air in order to run well .check the egr valve and pvc valve .make sure they are not stuck open.

'93 Impreza L wagon, will turn on but will drop rpm under 1K.


most older cars were designed to run between 600 to 800 rpm so its not an issue, if the aircon is on it should pick up a few hundred rpm but dont be to concerned unless its dropping below 500rpm. these cars have a lot of low end torque so you wont have any trouble getting off the line.

Sounds like it is starving for fuel...the other guys sound right...check your fuel filter and fuel pressure...if the filter is nearly stopped up the pump would build pressure which would "push" past the filter and make it feel more powerful...then as the pressure drops it starts to starve again until the pressure builds up enough. Also, with the vehicle parked and running, get someone to rev it up while you feel the air coming out of the exhaust...if it isn't a good amount of pressure coming out of the tailpipe, your converter may be stopping up. be careful not to get burned by the exhaust though.

Loss of power at 2400 rpm's


Check your mass airflow meter. If it's bad, at least on my 1990 300ZX, the car won't rev over 2400RPM (it's a safeguard built into the ECU of the car). Grab one from a scrapyard and swap it in and see if that fixes the issue.
