Mitsubishi: I have a 2002 Mitsubishi eclipse that I just got.

Customer Question

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi eclipse that I just got. Well on take off it acts terrible like jerking, sluggish, hesitating and then it all of a sudden it takes off like you've tromped the pedal. So far we had it checked at advance auto parts, the computer they tested it with said it was the EGR AND THE #2 PLUG! so the egr tested out fine as well as the #2 after cleaning all parts and putting it back together, it was the same or worse. HELP PLEASE WHAT NEXT ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT!!!
