1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 123000 miles
After a recent repair, cv half shaft replacement, lower ball joint, and new battery terminals, the car battery light was on. After dring a few miles the car head lights, gauge lights dimmes, and enginee sputered and quit slowely as did power steering. The car enginee will start when it is jumped but will soon die a slow death. I belive the problem is the alternator. The polarity on the battery terminals was briefly switched buy the villege idiot and smoke came from the ignition and the car would not start. Then this major problem occured when the polarity was set in the correct positon. PLEASE HELP I AM STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF NO WHERE AND THIS CAR IS THE ONLY WAY I HAVE TO GET TO WORK. What should I fix and how should I do it to make this P.O.S run again.
have the same problem?
