1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
I am having an issue with the ignition with my car it is an eclipse rs n/t. I have just recently replaces the trans. And rebuilt the top end. After being put back together it ran better than when I bought it for a day and a half. I was driving to go fill up when the car suddenly died and would not start back up. The engine with turn but will not start. There is plenty of fuel getting to the injectors I have check by the schrader valve on the fuel rail. Fuel will squirt out over the engine and out the car. The timing belt is very new and timing is dead on, this car has an interference engine. I have check the coil against the spec. In a repair manual and found that it tested good and bad by the book. I had tried a new coil and still the same issue. I visualy checked over the wiring in the main harness and have found no cut or grounded out wires. I hooked up a scanner and was not getting a crank reference for the crank sensor. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor and had to use a pig tail. I wired up the connector just the way the factory one was wired. I am still getting the same issue. I am in the process of back probing all the sensors that would lead to a no spark and starting issue. I have asked a friend that works for a dealership about this and have gotten some feedback all leading to a short somewhere in the wiring. I have not heard of an ecm to fri while driving.
have the same problem?
