Tip & How-To about 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Recently, I have been struggling with this 2004 Dodge Stratus Coupe, R/T, with the 3.0L Mitsubishi V-6. Flooding and will not start. Timing belt was on the mark, crankshaft position sensor was showing RPM on the scanner, it was showing spark on the spark plugs, and had great compression and flooded cylinders. It was difficult. HOWEVER, the spark was a WHITE color. It ended up being a WEAK COIL. It is located in the distributor. I replaced the entire distributor with one from AM Autoparts off of eBay. Started right up and runs great. I want everyone to know that just because it had spark, doesn't mean that it was good spark. The COIL WAS BAD. I wanted everyone to know what I finally found. Thanks to everyone who pointed me in the right direction. This includes my fianc? Carmella. She stated that the spark was WHITE, not HOT (orange or blue).
