I have the opportunity to purchase a 1997 and/or 1998 Eclipse, but they both have issues. The 1997 hasn't started in a while and the 1998 runs rough. I know that there are a lot of things that can be causing the issues, but can someone give me some ideas on what to look at first. I'm thinking that's it's a possible timing issue on each. I have not had the time to look at the cars yet to give you more information, but plan to take a look at them as soon as I return home from my business trip. Also, is the 1997/1998 known for issues that I need to stay away from? What would be your deal breaker?

Thanks in advance!
