When was the last time you had your engine tuned up? Could be out of time. Have a mechanic change your wires, plugs and rotor and then check the timing.

My 1998 Mitsubishi eclipse GST was overheating I changed out the thermostat and still continues to overheat why?


You have to have a thermostat in the system. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head/s. Check the flow rate of the radiator ( blocked cores) check the condition of the cooling fins on the radiator. Check the radiator cap. Check if the fan is working when hot.. If you have a viscous fan hub on the fan then replace it . run the fault codes to check for air/fuel problems . Check for load and speed conditions as high speed when fully loaded will cause your problem . Check that it is actually engaging over drive and not over reving the engine.

Car dies going down highway hard to start afterwards it is a 1997 gs eclipse. what could be causing this


assuming the starter is good and the engine turn over fine but will not fire or run. when the car die, check why is it so hard to start. check if you getting sparks and fuel, no sparks check coil and wires,and if both are good than the cam sensor is bad, no fuel, check the fuel pump, pump good check the crank sensor.

It has step by step instructions with pictures. Even though its for an RS, which is what yours is, I used it for my 98 Eclipse GST. And its pretty much easy.
