2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 10100 miles
ok I have been fighting this problem for 2 months now. When I start my car it runs fine cold, I start to drive around and works just fine. Then after a few miles of driving and the engine is warmed up it starts to die on me when I come to a stop or when im slowing down. It will start up just fine then die right when I start it up. Now when I let it cool down for a few it mins it will run just fine until its warm again. And I have to rev up the rpms to keep it from die on me. And when I get going down the road it runs just fine just. Took it to the shop and found no codes at all. I check the MAF and its good. Took it to the shop and they drove it around and would not die on them. So I did a experiment I drove it around town when it was cold and did slow stops and it would not die on me and when I did fast stops it would die on me. So checked the IAC with every test I could find to check it and came out fine. So I took it too the shop again. They read the data stream before it died on them and found that the crank shaft position sensor went out of spec when it died. But I think it was because it was about to die it caused the CPS to go out of spec. So they want to change out the CPS and I want to change the IAC. Can anybody help me with this strange problem?
have the same problem?
