I would suggest that you have the A/C pump replaced. In the mean time you can remove the A/C belt, even if it's the entire serpentine belt and replace it with a shorter one to eliminate the A/C Compressor. If you go to your local parts store and ask for a belt for that model car they will ask if it has air conditioning or not, tell them that it does but you want the belt for the non air conditioned model and a mounting diagram. This will leave you with no air but in a short while the compressor is going to burn that belt off anyway.

Idling Problems


the rise in idle at startup and then a slowdown indicates possibly a throttle position sensor, sticking choke or a vacum leak. the TPS and choke is something that will have to be checked by a tech, the vacum leak can be found by starting the car and sticking your head under the hood and listen for a hissing noise that sounds like air escaping somewhere......if you can find it, and put your hand or fingers over the leak, the idle should rise and then you'll know that's your problem. this is entirely possible due to the age of the car, the number of miles on it and the fact that most of the vacum attachments usually use rubber hoses which will deteriorate over time and cause these types of problems

Why is my 1998 vrg gdi lose power on aircon is running...if i go up the hill or take off can fill like is struggling to go...as soon as i off the aircon the engine gain power again you can really fee


have an ac specialist check the gas pressures and the compressor as it is drawing too much power from the engine or too much power from the ignition circuit
I would suggest a compression test in the engine as well to get the engine condition. Most ac compressors take about 5hp to drive and if the engine is a bit sad then that is too much power overall.

1998 mitsubishi eclipse dies when it gets warm


Try this.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Engine sometimes simply cuts out while driving. After a few minutes it will start again but after driving for some distance it does it again.I replaced the fuel pump and relay and cleaned the tank and fuel...


it's either your losing pressure in your head... check your vacuum... it's causing no pressure in your engine which its losing power causing the belts to idle out of tune..

RPM drops to zero at idling after engine accelerates when warm


This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

02 Mitsubishi Eclipse heater gets hot only when in motion


Does your engine temperature guage read normal? Have you checked your coolant level? This can be the result of a partially seized thermostat... there is also a valve in the heater core lines that can seize partially closed. As the engine speed increases, the water pump can force more water through the partially closed component.

Engine cut out at 4500 to 5500 rpm while you are driving.


Check your fuel pressure, and see if your exhaust is flowing right. If exhaust is not flowing good then your catalytic converter is stopping up. Low fuel pressure would be because eather fuel filter, or fuel pump. Also check your air intake filter and your fuel ratio.
