Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse
'97 Mitsubishi Eclipse-RS, 4 Cylinder Dual O/H Cam: Car periodically stalls unexpectedly when driving. Has stalled several times within the past 4 months. Tuned-up 5 months ago. Local mechanics have not been able to narrow down / identify the problem and/or the fix. Car will start after it sits for approximately five minutes. Will run fine for a couple of weeks or so (including local/city and highway driving) and unexpectedly stall again. Car well kept and maintained. Normally, gas tank capacity about half, and very seldom is lower than 1/4 tank. Have you any answers or recommendations? Thank you for your professional help and support.
Take notes , when this happens.
For instance : engine warm or cold , outside conditions (cold , hot) , car driven for a while , long or short distance when problem occures etc.... , that may help for diagnosis.
It very well may be temperature relaited , sience it has to sit (cool off) for 5 min.
Ignition coils sometime do that.
I'm mechanic shop owner and intermittent problems are the hardest one , so any piece of iformation on above mentioned events may give a clue.
