Tip & How-To about 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Mitsubishi 3.0L V-6 engine flooding and will not start. SOLUTION

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).

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus (4cyl) that idles rough (almost stalls out), dies on start up and recently had a flashing engine light (backfire error). Any suggestions? No other issues, water pump and timing both recently changed.


Could be the idle air control, once these start hanging up inside, they can cause as variety of problems with idle speed (can become wildly random) or simply a failure to idle at all.

These links should help:

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

where can I get diagrams and instructions on how to change the timing belts on a 2004 DOHC 2.4 liter Dodge Stratus coupe?


orielly sells the books you will need. They sell chilton which will give you step by step procedure, I hope you have air compressor and air tools. It can be done by hand but it is no fun. Hope this helps.
