Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Open Question

96 eclipse will not start after putting in a new crank sensor

96 eclipse would start and stall after apprx 15 to 20 min now the car will not start after I replaced the old crank position sensor with a new one. after market wiring harness matched yellow wire with orange, blue/white with beige/orange, and *blue/black with *brown/green (*ground in the middle location). Voltage read ok with ignition in on position for each wire. Is the new sensor bad, or did the fuel pump kick out etc....How do I check to see if the new cps is bad. At the moment it very difficult to remove.

SOURCE: crankshaft position sensor location

Hello. One way to check if it is working is when you try to start the car does the needle move on you tac? If not then your crank sensor is more then likely the problem. It is located on the backside of the engine under the intake manifold. If is in about the center of the block. There will be a 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. If you decide to change it yourself (not to terrible of a job) unplug the sensor, remove the bolt and spin it back and forth slightly while pulling it out. It may be stoburn and you might have to work at it for a little bit (not a done of room) but it will come. When it's out the sensor will be shaped kind of like an L. I have changed a few of these over time and they can be a little stoburn. To install just reverse the process.

SOURCE: my 2000 eclipse wont start up all the way

I have the same problem on my 2002 Eclipse RS 2.4l 4 cylinder. Replaced the battery, starter, fuel pump(not at one time) . It started up when I had the starter put on as well the fuel pump. But everytime I started the car up it ran good till I turned it off the problem was still there. The car sounds like it wants to start but it sputters you can smell the gas so I know its getting fuel. it starts up fine with a cold start like in the morning.

Try getting a diagnostic thats what Im going to do next week.
good luck!!!

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Galant won't crank

Start with the old addage, "Give it fuel, Give it fire, and you will get what you desire." Check your fuel rail under the hood, it should have a valve almost like where you add air to a tire. Press the pin, fuel should shoot out of there. If not, its a fuel problem then you just trace it back down the line. Could be a fuel filter? Next, check your spark. See if your getting any to the plugs, if no, start tracing it back. Also, you didn't say if you recently replaced plugs and wires. If there are plug wires, which there should be, make sure they are connected to the right plug. If not your firing order won't be even close, so thats a no start. Check your fuel injection relay under the hood if you have one. Make sure it is working. This relay gives the fuel injectors their power. Basically, check anything that you need to make an engine run but start with the most basic first. Could be a bad MAF Sensor too. Also, don't rule out something crazy like a Crankshaft position sensor. There are ways to back probe all the sensors with a test light just look around online and find out what sensors you have and how to test them.

My car is actin up!!!!


I have a similar problem. Start with the cheap stuff like spark plugs and wires. Then check your fuel filter. After that, check your MAP sensor, and or fuel pump. Also your TPS (throttle position sensor)
I know this problem is very common. I have searched everywhere, and there is no one specific solution. Good Luck!
