Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

2 Answers

2000 eclipse will not start

The computer has no code but states malfunction, so we replaced it. the engine will start briefly if we put fuel in the intake, so its not a timing belt we replaced and checked the fuel pump it works, but there doesnt seem to be power to it, so we checked the relays all good and have power to them. any suggestions what to look at next?

Find the fuel reset button.. I think it's in the rear of the car inside on one of the wheel wells a small door perhaps similar to the fuse box cover.. I'd have to do some checking on the location of it but I would start there..

You may have to run a hot to it from the fuse box but make sure you hook into a fuse that shuts off when you turn the key off so the pump will shut off as well

The up and down idle kind of sounds like a vacuum leak. Did you have to remove the plenum to replace the rear plugs? Have you checked for a vacuum leak? What kind of plugs did you put in it?

2000 mitsubushi eclipse keeps shutting off. Ecu and fuel pump replaced


There may be an oil pressure sensor that is telling the computer that there is no oil pressure. That will shut the car off. Either there is not enugh oil pressure or the sensor is malfunctioning.

Hello

The engine and the automatic transmission in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Error code P0173Pd when check engine light comes on


Looked up the code. Means fuel trim malfunction bank 2. Switch your o2 sensors out and see what happens. If the code changes to p0171, then the o2 sensor is bad. If it doesn't, you need to check for misfires or exhaust leaks. Google 'fuel trim malfunction bank 2' for more info.

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start


Does it set the check engine light? Can you smell fuel fumes in engine compartment? Reading the computer code will get you on the right path to find the problem. Could be loss of fuel, flooding of fuel, or loss of ignition. Need tests to find this one.

That sounds like a bad grounding wire, or possible PCM malfunction. Check all engine wiring harness locations for any corrosion or damage. let me know what engine type you have, and I could look up the wiring schematics

My 2000 eclipse wont start up all the way


I have the same problem on my 2002 Eclipse RS 2.4l 4 cylinder. Replaced the battery, starter, fuel pump(not at one time) . It started up when I had the starter put on as well the fuel pump. But everytime I started the car up it ran good till I turned it off the problem was still there. The car sounds like it wants to start but it sputters you can smell the gas so I know its getting fuel. it starts up fine with a cold start like in the morning.

Try getting a diagnostic thats what Im going to do next week.
good luck!!!

Help me fixed this car, 2000 Eclipse GS


hey--it could any of the below:
1. low transmission fluid
2. internal transmission wear - probably time for an overhaul or some kind of rebuilding
If the RPMS DON T RISE - like the engine is bogging down and does not have the power to move the car faster I would suspect
1. a lack of fuel supply - like a weak fuel pump or a restriction in the fuel filter 2. restriction in the exhaust system like a catalytic converter or muffler 3. an engine sensor is out of whack - which will require the use of a computer scanner to read the computer memory
