I have a 2002 mitsubishi eclipse were I had the wiggle the key in order for the car to start after a week that car would not start. Changed the ignition key and the starter, the car still would not start. My husband and dad took the car apart and still found no problem. they then thought that it had to do with the computer. My father thinks that it has to do with the gas pump. My husband then ran it through the scanner and got the code P0001. I hope that you guys can tell me what could be wrong with the car

Dash separating from mounting at the seam where the airbag would deploy.

Rear passenger bumper light only, outside bulb, only when the lights are on but constant feed

Car cut off and will not start. Have checked and fuel pump is good ... put new cam shaft sensor on still won't start ... doesn't seem to be getting spark to plugs???

car just started acting up. wont go into first gear, stays in second, will go in reverse but jumps hard when changing gear. mechanic tried to put a tester on it and it wouldnt "communicate"? with it. trying to determine what is wrong and what its going to cost to fix it.
. i have only had it like 4 days and up until yesterday it drove great. there is also a whining noise too.

remains on service engine soon while driving

when you a person have there timing belt changed on one of these cars?

driv belt is destroed

Clutch was working fine no problem went into store come back out it won't go into gear? ?

was driving on main road transmission went out run running 55 was in drive but none of the gears are working

i have put a new injector and a computer that I got out the junk yard in it and its still dumping gas

Had to list Mitsubishi Eclipse for 1.8 engine.

Mitsubishi Lancer GLi 4 cylinder (not Eclipse but choice not there)
Cable has been tightened twice but has now broken (ie 'nothing' happens when pressing clutch pedal). Advice has been that it needs replacement and will be $1000 Australian dollars. Seems a lot for us.

Got in it today after work it was very difficult to get running I had to constantly hold the gas for about 5 minutes before I could let off the gas and quickly put it in drive before it stalled at every stop it stalled and the heater quit working at low rpms, drove fine to work.

If I can How do Ido it.

Was told after getting an inspection of my brakes and having symptoms of high-pitch squealing and pedal going very low to floor, but they still work (just not as well as before)that the master cylinder and possibly the booster was defective and needed replacing. However, on this site I read that a code light should come on for bad master cylinder. Also, how much should it cost for a complete repair of a master cylinder and booster?

need to know its location

I change rotor and cap car wont start.when it did start it wont go over 25 0r 35 mph

above the doors on either side, and above the windshield on either side.

the inside of the plastic assembly has been hazed by the sun and i don't think that this part is accessible for some of the standard "unhazing" methods.

Thank you

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse 3.0 v6 5 speed. The car was starting to get to where it wanted to get hot and when it was starting to get to where it was overheating I always stopped and cut it off. it started to overheat for almost a month and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I always cut the heater on and it would level out or I stopped it I had to. After a Month I finally decided to change the water pump water was coming out of the weep hole. I parked it and replaced the water pump but while I was doing it, taking the harmonic balancer off the crankshaft turned a half a revolution backwards while the timing belt was off. I replaced the water pump and got a new belt but when it came to piecing it back together I couldn't finish it due to weather. I took it to a shop after 5-6 months of sitting there and had the car put back together. They couldn't get the car to start and told me that the spark plugs had to be changed. Well after I got new plugs and wires and a new distributer cap it still wont start. the marks are right and the cam sensor is getting spark, so is the first spark plug. it tries to turn over but its not getting any fire. I thought it might be bad gas or something but I am just not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

havent had luck finding a kit avail and seems to be a commen problem with these cars..

have had prior wiring harness issues but has been fixed, 167k on motor, many new parts, rotors,callipers,battery,clutch kit,plugs,wires,fuel injectors,lower ball joints,ect its is a project for my son and me, eventually turboed as well

Hello I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 Non Turbo 420a. One day i was driving my car and all of a sudden the car lost power. I stepped and stepped on the throttle but the car wouldn't pick up the speed it had no power in it. The rpm needle would rev but no reaction came from the car. The car then came to a stop and shut down. When i got it home i tried to turn the car on but it just makes a weird screeching grinding noise. Any ideas?
