99 Mitsubishi Eclipse shutting off while driving

Don't waste your money troubleshooting. It's The Crank Knock Sensor. Very common issue. Also save the heartache and don't buy a used one as it almost assuredly will be bad also.

My 2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt stalls when i come to a stop. Runs great and does not stall when cold. will cleaning the throttle body fix this issue?

Air & Fuel Filter check, Check the gap on your spark plugs. Heat makes metal contract and the cold makes it expand

Self reving

Clean your IAC, throttle body, MAF sensor, intake and manifold. Check throttle cables, loosen or tighten as needed. Check for vacuum leaks, they will cause a rev sometimes.
