2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Bought about a week ago. I fixed the shift linkage and replaced the valve cover and gasket. Before that it ran, but had a bad misfire. I have no idea what that large clunk is when it tries to start. The battery was charged and new spark plugs installed.

You're going to owe me some money for this.... Switch your spark plug wires. Going left to right, the spark plug wire on 1 should be connected to the coil on 4. 2 and 3 should be connected. Long wire going across, short wire connecting two middle cylinders.

Pearl knows what hes talking about. I didn't hear any clunk but you've definitely got the plug wires on wrong. I didn't hear any clunk, fix the wires and see if it still makes noise and doesn't start. DM me for some personal contact info and I'll see if I can't help you diagnose it as I have the same engine and have had pretty much every issue imaginable with it haha
