Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe
For about half an hour the light doesn't come on, but after an hour in to driving, the light comes on, and no oil comes out from any end? What should I do?

You should check that you are getting power to your glowplug busbar. (thats the alloy bar that connects the power to all the glowplugs).
1.Get a circuit tester and connect the clip to negative earth -
2.Get someone to turn the ignition key to "on" while you hold the tester on the busbar. It should light up for around six seconds I think.
3. If this happens all good than the next step is to check that the glow plugs are turning off correctly while your driving or operating the vehicle.
Also remove and inspect the glowplugs they should be just a nice brown/carbon colour...
They should have no chips out of them or damage of any kind.
These 4D56 engines have a glowplug timer that almost always stuffs out. Then they cause the glowplugs to stay on almost the whole time while driving which stuffs them quickly...
Let me no how you get on
I have a few easy ways to fix this problem!!!
