Assuming you mean car will not idle.
Did you also replace your spark plugs? If not, then do that.
Recheck all of your spark system for any arcing (easier at night so you can see sparks). Check the coil pack, wires, plugs, etc.
Have vehicle scanned for any trouble codes (misfire, etc.).
Check your Idle Air Control Valve. Remove and clean and check ports to determine if any blockage exists. Also check to ensure the IAC valve is actuating.
Check the EGR valve to ensure it is working properly.

You need to remove the seat from the floor. Take out of the car and turn it upside down. Remove the hog rings holding the cover to the frame and remove the cover. Do your patch/repair and put the cover back on. Before you start, get a box of hog-rings and a pair of hog-ring pliers to crimp them with back in the same holes you removed them from. As for the head rest, there should be a button on the side to release it. Then just pull it straight up.

Change the ignition coil

I'm not surprised the shop didn't want to do the work. SOMETIMES removing the cam bolt nuts, and applying a large lever and socket,with heat, will break the bolt free of rust.

If not, it gets involved and expensive very quickly. Bolts can be cut off with and angle grinder wheel, but control arm bushes or complete arms may need replacing.

The most likely cause would be that you have the a/c set to let in outside air as opposed to recycling inside air. If the system is set to recycle, the moisture in the cabin air would quickly be removed, but set to outside air (or if the windows are open) the humidity would stay at a high level, causing excessive moisture to be collected on the evap coil. Are you confident that you located the a/c drain line and not the drain from the cowling? Hope this helps! Dano

Throttle body, IAC or EGR valve.

You need to find a mechanic that will actually scan your computer to see what each component of your engine and rest of your vehicle is doing, not just pull codes. There are sooo many things that could cause your issues...

It really depends on the car. A rear wheel drive car vs a front wheel drive car. An all wheel drive car vs a 4 wheel drive car.(There can be a difference) But lets be general. A basic rear wheel drive might cost $800. while a front wheal drive car might be a $1200- $1500 charge. Of course anything over 10 years old and anything exotic will be more.

It’s in the hardest place to reach they could put it. Get under your car and follow the firewall near the center. You'll see a small hose poking out that you can barely reach with an air hose wand. Debris often plug the drain hose. If you hear water sloshing on the passenger side in the dash and/or the passenger side carpet is soaked, blow air through the drain tube to unblock it. Also the grommet around the hose there at the firewall can deteriorate and let condensed water blow back into the driver’s side floor pan. With a lot of effort you can pack silicon sealant around the drain tube at the exiting firewall location and solve that problem. With real effort you can place silicon around it from the interior also. If you don't have a compartment filter or your filter is old and ineffective, you'll be amazed at how much debris sets on your condenser coil down there in the center of the dash (if your airflow is less than you remember and not as cold, the condenser coil is likely covered in debris)...and it's almost impossible to clean it out without disassembling the dash. That's another story on how to fix...

Sounds like something is caught on the cabke.. or you didn't push the release button fully in when trying to release it.

replaced a belt and pulley for the air conditioner, idler and alternator and it still will crank, what do I ck next

Are you saying the air coming out of the vents is not cold unless you are moving ? Or there is no air unless you are moving ?
And are you sure the radiator fan is running with the ac on ? Can you feel air being pulled thru the condenser ? What are the gauge readings with the ac on and the engine at idle ?

It is called a running or parking light. If only one light is out, it is not the fuse.

The relay is located in the relay box under the hood in the relay box. I suggest you Google "relay location 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse" for the exact location. For troubleshooting purposes, once you locate the relay, simply swap it with an identical relay within the relay box. If it still fails to start, then it is not the relay.

Defrost is turning the fans on so there is probably an issue with the fan controls on the car.

If pumping the accelerator seems to work ( it actually does nothing) then there is an indication of a sensor failure either in the accelerator position sensor or accelerator motor. run the fault codes and replace any faulty sensors.
