I have the exact problem, same car and same state. Still not sure where its coming from because it becomes so saturated i just can't understand. Check under your drivers side floor and there are a few rubber plugs and on mine, one was missing but I just can't see that being the issue. Let me know if one of yours is missing too then maybe thats the issue. Let me know if youve figured this out yet
I was having something similar to this, but mine smelled like antifreeze.. the heater core has a leak.. I just bypassed the heatercore and all the leaking went away.

wobble/shaking under acceleration in the front end.

Probably motor mounts or cv shafts are worn

hissing

@First post.
I bought the rivets and now the piece is held down, but the problem was not solved.
more info:
*The hissing sound comes when going over 20 mph and accelerating after that, It's not present at speeds lower than that.

What could it be?

The everyone who has HID's and one side of the tail lights dont work. Its the wiring on that side on the HID's. You blew a fuse and you have to make sure there are no shorts in the wire on "THAT SIDE" and then replace the fuse. I had the same problem and fixed it fairly easy this way.

(Hope this helps, there could be a number of things wrong but it is a short somewhere on the side that this is happening)

Power drain

I own a 2004 eclipse GTS. It's had a slight electrical drain for over a year now, but I was just now able to check it out. The battery would be totally dead after sitting for three days or so. Found out there's about a 4 amp drain somewhere along the power window circuit. Anyone else have this problem? if so, where along the circuit was the power drain located?

i have a gt with 110k miles. replaced everything and its mother. and still no bye bye misfire. at least i got my car to start again.

its a very expensive fix. distributor = 400$, CPS = 200-300$. the crankshaft position sensor always blows, and so does the distributor. i have also got ngk IX iridium, and ngk wires. along with the distributor, i got a new cap/and rotor. almost everything in the engine is new yet there is still no fix for the p0300. yes i checked for vac leaks, yes i did timing and compression test.

i am not the only one with this problem. there are a few guys with the same dam problem and NOBODY HAS CARED TO HELP!

by the way, i drive a 2001.
Please don't scare me. I also drive a 2001 gt. I just changed the plugs and wires and got that stupid code. Son of a bitch, stupid shitsubishi

Talking FIX

If yours has the EGR junk on it Witch it should disconnect the vacuum line going to the EGR Valve on back of Plenium.... that fixed my problem on mine.... Make shure to block vacuum line on the suction side... I'm trying to figure out what is causing the issue but when i find out y i will post

I drive a 2002 GS, but I'm getting the same problem. My guess is the p0300 is related to two other codes I'm getting, camshaft AND crankshaft position sensors going off.

My mechanic said there was a bit of oil running onto the crankshaft sensor, but he didn't suggest any leak (which is what I'm suggesting). So, look for any oil. It could be a seal is cracked and is leaking onto the sensor, which then it can't read through the oil, which I'm pretty sure is what's causing my problems.
Anyone else have any suggestions?

Hey man, I'm having this same issue. Did you ever end up fixing it? My car is now in the "Wont' even start now" phase.

PO300 results from a vacuum leak caused by the EGR vacuum control valve going bad and the egr valve being cracked constantly when it isn't supposed to be.

If it's so bad the car won't start then you have a bad coil in the distributor (also very common issue). Go get a new dizzy.

Thanks man. I'll be buying a new distributor soon. I hope that fixes the issue. I didn't know jack about cars until I started working on this car, which is good I guess.

So, I'll also look up some threads on how to fix the EGR valved since I don't know what that is lol.

Is that an expensive fix? Thanks for the reply btw man.

Well I think I just finally got rid of P0300.. I have a 2001 Eclipse GT.. Anyway, my car was bogging every few seconds at times.. I would push in the clutch and wait for the idle to come down and let it back out and I had power again. Seconds to minutes later, same thing.. I seriously wanted to beat that thing with a baseball bat.
Anyway, I replaced plugs, plug wires, cap, rotor, used distributor, new distributor, EGR vacuum solenoid switch, MAP sensor, TPS, all four O2 sensors, gutted pre-cats, cleaned out EGR valve, did the timing belt change with new tensioner etc, water pump and crank sensor while I was there and that was last weekend for the timing belt change. After the timing belt change and crank sensor, it ran soooo much better!! BUT, the following day on a drive the code popped up again and bogged. It proceeded to do that about 20 times in a half hour drive. I then went into Walmart angry and grabbed some NOS octane boost seeing as all we have around here is 91 and some 10 dollar bottle of Duralube injector system cleaner. Dumped those in and even though it would have took a while to go through for sure, the car acted fine on the way back. So because of my higher than normal idle, I bought a mass air flow sensor. Installed it at noon and drove the 7 minutes back to work. The engine light actually went off! I then started the car after work, let it idle for a few seconds and the rpms do a dip and the P0300 AGAIN!! Still hasn't stumbled though since the MAF.. I cleared the codes and made sure not to start it and idle any longer than a few seconds haha! I am reaching at this point! No code and the next day I start it up and go to work. Come home and unhooked the battery to properly reset the computer. Since then, it is finally showing P0121 and P0507. TPS and IAC. No P0300 and no stumbling in 3 days. this is a record! So from what I have read, if the MAF isn't working properly the computer can't pick out the high idle etc. Either way, she is running smooth and tomorrow I will adjust the TPS and see if I need an IAC. I just may because the high idle occurred after I sprayed TB cleaner in the TB while it was bolted to the motor. It easily ran down into the IAC. I didn't clean the IAC till later.. I hope this helps. I think next time a P0300 comes up I will start with the MAF providing I know when I last changed plus, wires, etc.. Just seemed to be timing and the MAF when it was all said and done.. I hope!!

Just to update, nothing has fixed my P0300 code/ bogging. I have no fucking clue anymore. The lack of answers and attitude on this site makes me believe people just aren't fixing it. Trust me, I have searched since November and am no closer then I was when I first started. Only thing left really is injectors and computer. I have eliminated everything else and am getting low on money. $1,200 in parts and MANY weekends just to have it run the exact same. I have checked for vacuum leaks enough. Went through 5 cans of carb cleaner. I am just going to bite the bullet and take it to the dealership and see if they can figure anything out. All the shit I replaced should hopefully help them look elsewhere other than the regular crap.

I've had the P0300 for a long time, but otherwise the engine runs fine. I removed the EGR valve and cleaned the carbon off the valve. Two weeks now daily driving without a P0300.

P0300 eventually returned.

Months later, I removed the timing belt cover and found the TB tensioner was loose, and one of the camshafts was off by a tooth.

Anyway, it's been several months and no P0300.

illAdvised needs to be reminded to breathe.
New to the site so sorry if this has been posted. I have a 01 3g eclipse GS and I'm having a major issue with my antifreeze system. I know I have a leak & I know where its at but its not big one where I just went through a whole gallon with in a week... my 2 issues are when I put in coolant and fill it to the max line and drive it 3 blocks to the store it the reservoir is completely empty. and just today it was empty yet again and I filled it to the mininim line drove it for about an hour across town and parked it in my driveway for 10 mins go back out side and see a puddle, popped the hood and my coolant reservior is completly full that it over filled and leaked thru.... like I said I know the leak is there but I highly doubt that it causing my system to completly backwash like that from a minimal amount to over filling. any ideas on what this is?

mirage : who are you?
It's from your Sun roof there are two drains on both side of your Sun roof when it's open there's a house that runs down the right column of your car that leads toward the floor board. What you need to do is take the column of and get to the house and blow air through out to clear it out. When your done or some water through the drain hole in your Sun roof and see if you see the water drop down from right behind the right front wheel. Don't blow to much pressure through the house. U might have to take off your interior roof and i would blow straight through three drain hole if you can't take the intior down cuz then the water will seep through that instead of you blow the hose off

Just want to point out that while sanding off the yellowed outer shell does wonders, the only way to keep it from coming back in 3 months is to clearcoat the plastic. Clearcoat blocks the UV that yellows the plastic. Clear only has to be reapplied every 3-5 years, if it doesn't get scraped off, but it is a royal PITA to apply and keep at a steady temp and humidity for a few days.

02 spyder.

I'm thinking of buying an 02 spyder. I test drove it and when you punch the accelerator it falls on its face and won't accelerate. Could this be fuel injectors or fuel pump? Doesn't do it while in park. If you slowly accelerate it's fine. Also fag vibrates a bit. Possibly bad motor mount? Please give me some suggestions. I'd like to buy this vehicle but am concerned with repair costs.

Cool Mystery Code

Ive owned several 3gs and still drive one today. I have found that the egr valve is the problem and if not, it is the IAC. My last one was the egr and my daily driver (03 GTS) was as well. Sadly the ECM is shit too so get used to MIL's.

P0300 Code 2002 Eclipse 3.0

P0300 Code This is my current situation with my 2002 Eclipse 3.0 also. The last mechanic fixed Cam Crank Code issues but could not figure out why the random miss fire and rough idle stays. Most everything has been replaced.

HAS ANYONE FIGURED OUT A FIX AS TO WHY EVERYONE HAS THIS PROBLEM? HOW ABOUT AN ANSWER WHY NO ONE IS LOOKING INTO IT?

i have a gt with 110k miles. replaced everything and its mother. and still no bye bye misfire. at least i got my car to start again.

its a very expensive fix. distributor = 400$, CPS = 200-300$. the crankshaft position sensor always blows, and so does the distributor. i have also got ngk IX iridium, and ngk wires. along with the distributor, i got a new cap/and rotor. almost everything in the engine is new yet there is still no fix for the p0300. yes i checked for vac leaks, yes i did timing and compression test.

Well homie... I got a resolution for ya. Did you heck the gapping on your spark plugs when you put those bad boys in there or did you just believe they were gapped correctly? I noticed you didn't mention that. Pull those suckers back out and regap them. Also, what do you mean the distributor and CPS "blow?"
i am not the only one with this problem. there are a few guys with the same dam problem and NOBODY HAS CARED TO HELP!

by the way, i drive a 2001.
For the 2003's with V6 there is a technical service bulletin about P0300.It has to do with the PCM needing to be reprogrammed and Mitsubishi does have a fix if this is the cause in other years is unknown.
Fuel related issues might cause this as well.
