The slave cylinder is the one that actuates the release bearing of your clutch system. It is located underneath your vehicle and mounted on the bell housing of your transmission assembly.

Supplemental Restraint System (airbag). If this light comes on have the SRS system serviced.

On the 2.0 and 2.4 engines there is an ignition module that fires the coil from input from the computer and sensors.
You may have to get a shop manual to have the testing procedures needed to check the module.

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Your message is incomplete,but anyway I will give you some advice and check it. If you mean that you had a problem with the Oxygen Sensor and on removing it you damaged the threads,surely you will have a check engine light on even you renewed the sensor because fitting the sensor in a broken threads you will have a leak and the sensor will not measure correctly the emission. what to do? go to an exhaust fitter and ask him to clean the hole and just weld a nut same thread of sensor and fit it correctly. If is that what you meant.

spark plugs and wires or a fuel pump

I really don't have any greatly detailed step by step procedures here. In the pictures below is you can figue out how to remove the different items (cover plate, cental console...) do it in order by number stated below the picture. Also in the laxt picture, there is a picture of the SRS-ECU (electronic control unit for the airbags). Be VERY VERY careful not to jar it or bump it.....be careful on other words. Make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal before you start but there is still stored energy in the vehicle and on your vehicle I have seen a couple of times when the SRS-ECU was bumped the air bags deploying by accident. I have some factory Mitsubishi service manuals on PDF at my shop and if I remember (I'll try), will look to see if there is anything about removing the center console & will post if there is anything. The other stuff is pretty easy if you are mechanically inclinde. Hope this helps a little anyway....

Hi there:Here's a little information on it and some things to check...


For more information see if you can get a copy of this Technical Service Bulletin from your local Mitsubishi dealer.

NO.: TSB-98-13-012
DATE: September, 1998
MODEL: 1996-97 Eclipse 2.0L Non-Turbo

Evaporative Emission Control Leak Detection System Diagnosis

This bulletin describes the operation of the evaporative emission control leak detection system and how to diagnose diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) relevant to this system (DTCs 183, 184, 187, 160, and 161).

I think the whine you hear while turning the steering wheel is a P/S system that's low on fluid or a P/S pump starting to go bad.

The rattle under the dash could be anything from loose change to a loose component.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Sounds like the bulbs have burned out, you will probably have to replace them. Most auto parts stores can point you at the right bulb for your car, and some can even show you how to replace it.

You have to pull off the front bumper, there are two bolts behind it that you cant reach.

1999 Mitsubishi... | Answered on Jul 01, 2012 | 118 views

i take my center console off all the time and the wires on the back of the lighter come off real easy, the black one i believe is the light bulb so you need to turn it to pull it out, then when you go to put it back, line the nobs up then turn it when its back in.

An easy way to test your spark plugs is to:

1) remove 1 of the spark plug wires from a spark plug
2) stick a small screw driver into the wire where it would attach to the spark plug
3) holding the handle of the screw driver, hold the shaft of the screwdriver within an 1/8" to the frame
4) have someone else try to start the car

You should see a spark jump from the screw driver shaft to the frame. This will let you know if you have ignition at the spark plug.

There are 3 main things an engine needs to run, compression, fuel, spark, all at the right time. The easiest thing to check would be fuel and spark. Spray some staring fluid into the intake and see if the engine will try to start on that. If it does, then you know you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't, then test the spark. You can get a spark tester for about $5 at any auto part store. You just plug your spark plug wire on to it, clip it to a metal surface, then try to start engine while watching the gap on the tester for a spark to jump. You should get a good blue spark jumping the gap. If you have spark and it didn't run on the starting fluid, then you should do a compression test. Try the first two test before we get into compression testing. Another thing I would like to know is if you had any symptoms before this happened, like the service engine light was on, the car would buck, the car would run strange, or any other driveability issues before the car wouldn't start.

Engine needs spark, fuel and air to run. I assume the starter is turning the engine over. Have you verified you have spark at the plugs? Have you verified you have fuel pressure? Can you hear the fuel pump when you first turn the ignition key? If, yes to those, check the timing belt settings to make sure something hasn't caused the timing to change.
