My car is a Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 2000-non turbo with 123500 miles.

basically when I was driving my car 1 week ago it kind of pulls me back when switching automatic gears. Which means it****** when I try to accelerate. Yeah that. And whenever I stop at a stopped sign it dies completely. And all the lights from the passager seats turn on. Also sometimes it dies when im making a left turn or right.I had this problem before for like 4 days and it went away this was around septemeber it was running fine then it came back again last month. The mechanic told me to do a tune up because since I bought it I did not do it so I did it and it was running fine. Then it started again 2 weeks ago.I took it and left my car to him and he said one of the sensors was not giving signal to the fuel or something like that. He replaced it and it was fine for 1 week.

BUT on sunday it started again ='''(. Even thought he changed of of the sensors and it was running fine why did it happen again? Please help me idk what to do anymore. Yestday which was monday it was running fine and today which is Tuesday started the same thing again!

I did a tune up, change the oil, clean the injectors, put a newer motor mount, and cleaned the EGR valve. Alot of people told me it might the the EGR valve and the EGR solenoid, when I asked the mechanic last week he told me he cleaned the EGR valve, do you think it is the EGR valve and solenoid? Thank you for your time.

Do you
have the same problem?

I believe the problem is related to the idling control and MAF. Is the Check Engine Light indicating?
The EGR will set the check engine light. Check fuel pump pressure to make sure it is within spec.

Was this
