I too have experienced this problem at cold temperatures.  I have to start the car, switch it off strait away, then start it again and I have no problems.  I do notice there is still a ticking noise until the motor is warm.  I have taken the car to my mechanic and still no answer.  I had this problem after my timing belt was changed.

Hey there, I have the exact same car and have heard a metallic noise that sounds a little like a chain dragging on the road when I accelerate... Is that what you mean by that specific noise? Does that mean its the exhaust?? Pleaseeeee help me!! Lol >_<

I have been working with (and driving) a first generation Mitsubishi Eclipse for several years. Anything that could go wrong with an Eclipse has probably happened on mine. Fortunately, I have gained a lot of knowledge from experience in repairing these problems myself.


Identifying and repairing problems in mechanical and electrical areas. Plus, I have learned many ways to enhance performance to the incredible engine Mitsubishi put in their early model Turbos.
