Will the car stay running if you hold down the gas pedal a little? if it will, check the idle air control motor. it should be on the throttle body.

Had the same problem with mine. First it was IACV. Then Mass Air Flow Sensor. Then I got a hole in a vaccum hose. And last but not least expensive my clutch locked up on my compressor. All have same symptoms and all went out between 100k and 150k miles.

Battery keeps dieing


I would test alternator again but I have always had trouble with the machine test so a good way to test is to start the car and disconnect the positive cable from the battery, if the alternator is good the car will stay running, if it is bad the car will die.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Transmission rebuilt 5 years ago on a 1997 Eclipse RS. Now, the RPM levels are extremely high even without full acceleration.


The likely cause for your high RPM may be caused by a vacuum leak in the engine. You can open the hood and check your hoses for cracks and leaks. This is a good place to start, but may no be a full solution.

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Car will start but will not idle. If RPM's not


Possible low fuel presure at idle. If new fuel filter does nt fix , then it will
require a new "fuel pump". Have you driven this car on low fuel level often?

IDLE problems when I turn on the AC. Electrical power seems to fluctuates when the car is stop sign/light or other when i have the AC on. Check it the other day, started it up, disconnected the battery,...


alternator needs good battery to keep SCR in the regulator on if it is loaded it will shut down. this will happen when you try rolling window down or rear defog will load up the system. When the truck is running and battery is hooked up the vehicle should run at @700 RPM at idle and when A/C compressor is commended on it should idle up to @1000 RPM and then back down to @700 RPM when compressor cycle off again. But if the system almost stalls then the battery and alternator should be changed together, A bad battery will damage a new alternator and a bad alternator will damage a new battery.

My moms 1999 ford contour just had the alternator replaced and now the car will start but wont stay running?


did you have the battery checked also? did you reconnect all wires to the alternator? sometimes there is an electrical connector that plugs into the alternator. If this is unplugged in the alternator will not charge the battery and car will die once battery is dead.

2001 Mitsubishi eclipse wont start


you don't hit the alternator, you hit the starter to help is shake free because it is already going bad. take battery and alternator to parts store and have both tested. check the wires at the starter and make sure they are on SECURELY. very important SOLID CONTACT is occurring. do your lights turn on? check starter relay if the eclipse is equipped with one.

keep it idling a little bit high about 1000 and remove the +ve terminal from the battery if went down then you have to check the alternator if it keeps on idling turn the headlights on (high beam ) if it stops then again you need to check the alternator if keeps on idling then alternator is ok
