I have a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000 GT SL package. It does not have spark on three and six. Sometimes it will start and run perfect for about a minute or two of them starts missing and shuts off.

Here's the bad news, I have replaced the crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, the coil pack, the power module underneath the coil, the cam belt, 2 idler pulleys on the cam belt, the ECU unit underneath the dash.I forgot. I also replaced the fuel filter, and the thermostat and the spark plugs. Then I gave up and I took it to a repair shop for six months. When I picked it up, it still did not have spark on three and six. I had a tow truck, take it to the repair shop and I had it towed home from the repair shop.

The good news was, he replaced all the spark plug wires, and put new spark plugs in. I am pretty lucky he didn't put new tires on it.

Anyone has a solution I would really appreciate some help. Thank you very much, Jim

the eclipse is a tough little machine when it is running but the blocks and the wiring on these cars are OUT-RAGEOUS!
09/15/09 14:40

if u don't have spark check the coil. but engine can still run with only one coil. also if your coil burns often check your alternator voltage... also try to check for error on computer you may get a random misfire code. i also were told that the map sensor could be bad too... im just trying to help because i own a 01 mitsubishi galant and have the same problem
09/19/09 11:49

guys, i had the same problem as most of you.. after checking coil and everything leading to it, i discovered the Crank sensor was malfunctioning.. this sensor is just above the OIL FILTER on the 420a engine.. if this sensor is not operating, the ECU will not be able to tell when to trigger the coil.

cheers and good luck. .if you need help, email me.

im not getting any fire to the plugs. Not getting any power to the coil. Already replaced the coil and still no spark...does anyone have a idea what might be keeping fire from getting to the coil pack? It seems like the wires from the plug to the pack are going to the computer or something under the hood. Any ideas please email thanks

WOW. Someone has to have the answer to what appears to be a very common issue. Just had my 420A rebuild by a shop that races Eclipse's. They are stumped. Fuel to rail, signal from cam and crank sensors but no spark. Sensors were working fine when we pulled the car into the shop. Car also was running.

Mechanic has replaced each part without any change. It would appear from the above that this appears to be a common issue. So who has the answer as to what is wrong?

08/12/10 02:07

My friend has this 95 eclipse we been tryn to figure out what's wrong with it. We put new coil after new coil 12 in four weeks they keep goin out we were told by one shop it was tha computer sending spikes. Mistibushi dealer intown and they said it wasn't tha computer that you have to buy mistibushi coil 30.00$ difference. Drove it for maybe two hours popped ther coil were tryn to find out what's wrong. Anybody have this problem?

hello there I have a 2000 eclipse GS.I had the same problem no spark to coil pack. I found out it was the crank shaft sensor changed it an it would not start. I took it off and I found out that the balancer belt had broken and thats what caused the crank sensor to break and it also bent the crank blade. once I replaced the balancer belt the crank blade and the crank sensor the car started right up!!! I had never seen that little balancer belt before but apparently thats what cause all my problems. So all of you guys that haven't checked that out yet you might get lucky and have the same problem I had. If you don't understand what I tried to explained feel free to contact me at I know how frustruating it is for people with this common problem. Good luck to all!!!

Hopes this help..

Mechanic went to fix car from over heating and fixed my car from over heating, but he rigged it poorly!

He spliced the constant white wire under the steering wheel and a ignition wire and did something that i wasnt aware of.

My car wasnt overheating but the radiators was always running.

He shoved one of those wires in the fuse holder in the ac fans.

Car wasnt over heating but, radiators always on untell i went to start car it smoked out under me. I pulled over and noticed a wire hanging was melted and that he shoved into the fuse holder causing the fuse holder to my car wont start.

I tested the coil pack wires and they arnt hot and wont spark the engine.its been three years my cars been still sitting there and I never botherd to take it any where.

75 dollars a hour to fix.

I dont have that kind of monney.

I would rather to send money to someone who can help me fix it.

Every thing on the car works lights, blinkers....ect.

it just wont start.

I have a melted fuse holder that works, but a black and a green wire that clipes into another clip.

When i unclip car acts like it wants to start but doesnt.

When i clip it on....I dont even crank.

Wth could this be?
