Starts then dies

Asked by Jun 15, 2016 at 01:09 AM about the 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2 Dr GS Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so I pressure washed my engine compartment
and then my car would start and run for a few
seconds then die. I replaced the mass airflow
sensor and that changed nothing.

Remove all the plugs and connectors and blow them with air>>> Make sure everything is dry, somewhere water is giving you this problem
