2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse Repair Question
Hesitation/sputtering when accelerating
The #5 cylender misfire has me concerned. If the light is back on, check to see if the same code is stored. If it is, remove the plug and check its condition. Also, check compression in that cylender. One other thing, check to make sure the injector is getting power and make sure the fuel pressure is within spec. Go to our homepage under the DIY section and select fuel pressure check for a vido and directions. Make sure to check the regulator at the same time. After that, if pressure is normal, using a noid light, make sure the cylender is getting power to the injector. The light simply plugs into the power side of the injector wiring. Most parts stores will lend them to you.
