Car died and won't start

Asked by Jul 03, 2016 at 02:09 PM about the 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car died yesterday. It's like it's not
getting any fire or has enough compression.
Timing belt is good, it's getting fuel, the
water and oil are both good.  I've been told
everything from blown head gasket
tocomputer board.

without accaully being there to look at it, first thing i would check would be the ignition module. Again, there is no real way to be able to know about a problem such as it without being able to see and hear it hands on, but try that and everything to do with it. Best of luck

Would that make it die going down the road?

its possable if its going bad, it controls the fire to the plugs. it could also be a bad distrubtor, problem with eletrical is that without a computer. Its a wild goose chase.
