My 1997 Mitsubishi eclipse will not pick up speed when I press on the gas, it stays in first, the clutch can shift tho, The car will not accelerate what could be the problem ?
Was you driving it when it started this?
The car had set for 2 years before I bought it, and this is the only problem it has no power could this be internal or external problem
I it has a oil leak in the Return holes from the turbo back to the block could that effect it
Could be a number of thing,s,from bad plug,s and wire,s to fuel pump,and i could name a lot more.A car that has set for this amount of time could have a number of issue,s.
Yes ,could be sucking oil into intake.
You may want to post this again when dandyoun, can work with you,he is our top mitsubishi eclipes man.
Got that right. Matter of fact I will drop him a PM to have a look-see at this.
Are you just now getting it back on the road? If so did you remove all the old gas out before adding new? Have you inspected your spark plugs? Manual or auto trans? You say it stays in first but clutch shifts. Do you mean you press the clutch in while driving but gear shift wont come out of first gear? Sounds like slave cylinder issue. If so check clutch fluid level(make sure it's full). Now bleed the clutch slave cylinder to get all the air out and inspect for leaks. If no pressure will build up then might need new clutch master cylinder. Ok I just rambled some.
