You didn't include the year of the car so some things may not apply. You probably have an 'Idle air control' that is either not operating or has a clogged passage. The throttle position sensor may be bad.
I would call the nearest chain auto parts store and ask them if they can scan your make and year of Eclipse. There may be a stored error code that will point to the problem device.
To avoid spending funds on unnecessary shop time, you might want to consider investing in a service manual that may help you when finding a problem such as this.
I had to guess at the year so this link may not be right but you can enter the correct info once there:

I have a 96 eclipse.that was overfilled w/oil new sparkplugs and wires,air filter,and oil it runs fine for about a mile then it acts like it is running out of gas and dies.wait bout 5min...

check your distributor cap to make sure no oil got in there also check your fuel pressure regulator to see if its a normal pressure any shop can tell you what it should be so just call and ask the fuel pressure tester is about 45 dollars at autozone

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.
