SOURCE: 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS blows cold air in heat mode.

ok here we go and you aren't going to believe it...
I replaced the thermostat step one

I noticed that I had a small leak at the engine side of upper hose fixed that by taking it off and cleaning it and putting the hose back on Step two

then while refilling the reservoir with coolant i found that the hose that was supposed to be in the fluid was curled up on top and not sticking down in the fluid where it should be.
played with the hose until i got it to fall down in the reservoir where it should be Step 3

I started the car with the radiator cap off and let it run until it got to normal operating temp. and keep filling the radiator with fluid until the level stayed constant. Then put the cap back on and test drove. Everything worked fine haven't had that much heat in awhile and it kept blowing hot even when i stopped and let it idle for ten min.during test drive. Checked reservoir when I got home and had to add a small amount of coolant but not much.

I really think that the hose in the reservoir not being in the right place and pulling air into the system instead of coolant is the real culprit of this drama, but i replaced the thermostat to be safe.

SOURCE: I have no heat in my 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer. When

The cable that pulls the cool/heat switch on the a/c gets weak and it doesnt allow the dial to switch over to heat. You can see that cable and the way its supposed to work on the right side of the gas pedal over it. I usually just use my foot to push that switch over to heat and reach with and pull on it with my right hand to cool.

My car goes off everytime I stop in traffic or when I drive in idling.


If you turn key off and it continues to run and run rough, this is the engine running backwards. It's called run on and you should check your timing. Best to check timing also when the engine is all warmed up also.

I have mitsubishi lancer 2006. It is 1600CC auto trnsmission. Recently I got the gear oil and timing belt changed. It has done 90000Km. After this change the car is giving a strange problem. When I start...


I do not think the misfire is related to the repair. You could take a trouble light and look/feel around under the hood to see if a vacuum line is not plugged in or a wire connector has been left unhooked or loose. Then I would try and find a good fuel system cleaner (I recommend Chevron Techron) and run a tank of gas through to see if you are just dealing with dirty fuel injectors.

Car runs cold. had new thermostat replaced and system flush. still runs cold gage is just above c


Are you getting hot air when you turn the heat on (after car has been running for at least 30 minutes)? If you do get hot air, I would say your car is probably running at the normal operating temp. and you have a bad gauge or temperature sender.

Mits lancer 2003 , car broken into now wont start. got spark but no fuel pressure. fuel pump good had tank out and tested. was working fine until windows got broken into


check fuses and fuel pump relay, and sometimes a simple bump or jolt or short can set off the fuel pump safety switch and is usually locates in the trunk hidden or glove box.
