Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse
When gas is pressed kind of hard it occasionally sounds like it has small
back fire under hood, also noticed slow pick up. just had tune up a month
or so ago. check engine light comes on occassionaly but goes off. Idle
is not smooth as it was. any suggestions much appreciated.
It is most likely a bad connection with your spark plugs and wires. engine light comes on because there is a misfire in one of the cylinders. When you get tune ups spark plugs are the main thing they replace and you should take car back to them to fix the problem.

There is an egr valve located in the front of the motor if the seals are worn in it it is not advancing . and will need to be replaced. now this can be done on your own and is very easy to replace. now the way you can check this is to first locate the egr valve have some one gas the car up look at the little flap inside of it it shoud open up. if not bingo. good luck
