Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse

2 Answers

I have a 1999 eclispe and having problems getting it to start. At first we thought it was the battery cause we junped it and it started so we changed the battery and it still does it. Then we changed the battery terminals cause we thought that might be it but still nothing.. I just don't know what it could be.. somebody help?

Check your battery fuse. And your alternator, and its fuse. This should cure your problem. ALSO, clean any corrosion that is on the battery wires, or terminals. Hope this helps, James Booth Please rate this. :)

2001 eclispe gt smells of gas, engine codes p0101, p0107

P0101 is the MAF (mass air flow) sensor that measure the amount of air entering the engine. Not enough air means rich running and a possible cause of fuel smell. Apart from running a little rougher there aren't always many signs that something is wrong.
P0107 is the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor and responds to changes in manifold inlet pressure (vacuum). Problems cause include hard to start, long cranking times, sputtering/missing, blowing black smoke, poor fuel economy.

Battery not charging showing on the display for the second time after I changed the battery once and the altenator twice. What could the problem be?

Take a good look at the alternator plug. The tabs on the inside should all look the same. Also a lot of corrosion can cause no contact. Replace the plug if necessary.

Batterey cables and battery are good but needs a starter to start is the starter bad ?

a little confusing here, maybe you need an ALTERNATOR, it keeps your battery charged, it you keep doing what your doing you will need a starter.

2002 Eclispe sometimes starts up and sometimes doesn't. When you turn the key in the ignition, sometimes you hear nothing. You can nudge the battery, and sometimes it will start up. I feel comfortable that...

if you're sure the battery & connections are ok,check the starter motor and it's connections.if it does start without a jump, I would lean towards starter. the headlight isn't related. you need a new bulb. the filament inside is broken, when you tap it,you're just causing the filament to make contact temporarily

I have a new battery. i have changed the fuel

I'm guessing you checked the fuses already, so if you have spark at the plugs, look for a vacuum leak. If you still suspect the fuel pump, do a fuel pressure test.
