91 Eclipse starting issues, addendum to prior question.

Asked by Oct 07, 2014 at 12:05 PM about the 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

91 Eclipse 1.8L 5 speed will start and run like a champ but when you turn it off whether after 30 seconds or 15 minutes it will not restart. No noises but power to radio lights etc. Will not take a jump but will push start. After resting for a couple of hours will restart right up then will not restart when turned off. Added that it runs strong.

After reading your last post,and this one,i think your starter may be bad,when it get,s hot,it will not crank the car,when cool it will,check the starter.

Thanks, I had given good thought that it might be the problem but you can put my auto knowledge in a small spoon, unfortunately. Appreciate the insight. DA

T_S_T, you were correct as I replaced the starter and it is back to running like a thoroughbred. Thanks again for the input.
