my car died suddenly on the highway, wont start now. 2002 manual eclipse 125000 miles,

Asked by Dec 12, 2014 at 09:04 AM about the Mitsubishi Eclipse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

engine light came on two weeks ago i had it plugged in and all that came up was a bad
spark plug wire which made sense as it had started to misfire a week prior to that. I dont
hear the fuel pump engaging when i turn the key, also had a belt squeal when wet out or if  
i stopped at a light with the heat or air on. Had it towed last night, any info would be
helpful!

A coil going bad can cause misfire problems. When it dies, so does the car. If you have access to a multimeter there are instructions on the web on how to check a coil.
