Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
It sounds as if two things might be going on (1) your throttle body may require a good cleaning (look for specific product at atuo parts store and follw directions) last the idle control switch may be failing. This is found within the throttle body (to remove you'll need to remove cold air in-let, two srcews and unplug from wiring harness. (while removed use a cleaner where the idle control went and get the carbon out of there)
I hope this may have helped,

Here are the common cause of idle surge, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.
To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won
