My son has a 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse that turns but won't start


Asked by Feb 28, 2015 at 12:52 PM about the 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

He has changed out the distributor, wires, cap, rotor, and the spark plugs.  Wondering if
anyone else has run into this problem to narrow down his options and my cash out of
pocket.  This car a gifted to him and I just want to see if we can do more than just scrap
it or bankrupt me.  Thanks!
