Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
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

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.
