My 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS engine had a hole punched out of the engine block and I need to know what had caused that to happen and there was no warning at all when it happened, although I do need a new...


Your mechanic can't tell you what happened? Very strange. I would suspect that the engine threw a rod to knock a hole in the block. Your mechanic should at a minimum be able to connect to the PCM and retrieve the freeze frame data to see if your vehicle experienced a fatal drop in oil pressure, etc. Additionally I've never experienced a service contract provider refuse simply outright refuse to pay to have the vehicle fixed myself. I have had vehicles come in where the previous "mechanic" simply didn't have the knowledge to diagnose the issue.

It's hard to say what happened without more information. Detailed information - what were you doing when it happened? How had the vehicle been driven prior to the incident? When was the last oil change?

Sounds like a fuel problem. The electronics shutting down are the result of the dying power. Start by changing the fuel filter. If that doesn't work; I'd look into the fuel pump.

1991 Plymouth Acclaim stalls


One of the more common problems with the 2.5L & 2.2L engines that suffered the symptoms your describing, such as, starts & runs good, then at any given time would just quit, not start, but after sitting a while, or by the time the mechanic gets to it, it starts right up, or you sit on the side of the road for 20 min. or half hour then away it goes for a while longer, then quits again down the road. There is a pick-up plate under the distributor cap & rotor, with the wiring plug coming from it. 90% of the time, it's defective, and cuts out especially, but not limited to, more often when weather is hot.

1999 buick century limited


if your caar is a v-6 or 6 cylinder motor you might have a injector shorting when hot this is very coming on those cars and very very hard to find from mechanics i'm a ase certified tecnichian and had found this as coming problem on this cars
you can ask to a mechanic to check the resistance on the injectors or when it happens again unplug one by one and see if car runs again if it does then replace all the injectors
because shops will keep trowing parts and labor trying to guess
