Anyone who is getting a service engine light on the 2006 Eclipse and the code states "misfire on the #3 cylinder", Mitsubishi issued a software update to reflash the computer. I had it done today. Mac West NYC

they never gave me the #, the tech told me its a misfire on tHe #3 cylinder which the car had happen 5 times after calls to mitsu with a letter to dealer from my lawyer.they called me and said there was a recall and the dealer would reflash the computer. all this run around, the service manager apologized and blamed the fact that I only brought the car in on the weekends, and he wasnt aware of the
situation. If you remember I also had the lcd panel go out on me which was replaced they took it right out of another eclipse. I still love the car and hope this is the end of issues.

I am getting a cylinder #3 misfire code on my 2005 Endeavor AWD. The engine is running sluggish from using low octane gas, I have since filled up with premium. Could this problem be related?
