I have a 2003 Mit Eclipse RS. Automatic. 90K miles. 2.4L 16 Valve. Car started stalling during deceleration and stop signs. Only would happen while foot not on accelerator. Took to my mechanic. Got 2 Codes. Misfire and Bad O2 Sensor.
Mechanic suggested follow the misfire. Replaced all plugs, electrical box, wires, tune up, oil change $360 later did same thing. Next got second opinion. This mechanic cleaned throttle body and IAC. $120 dollars later same problem. Finally, took to Mitsubishi. They suggested always follow the computer and replace O2 Sensor. $175 later still idles poor. Feels like gonna stall but doesn't. Don't know what to do or where to take next. Thats 3 mechanics NO ROOT cause. Everyone treating symptoms not some tricky cause. Read that only other cause could be small hose that you can only tell is bad when its opened up but seems like long shot.
Anyone have/fixed problem like this please let me know.
(Since 02 sensor change runs better untill A/C turned on
and SES light has come back on)
Other Info- 6 months ago- Replaced radiator, therm, all belts $725
4 months ago New battery and housing
have the same problem?
