  1. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hi, I'm New to the 4G69 and I read somewhere on here about an updated timing belt tensioner that helps prevent premature failures but couldn't find any info on the differences or a part number and I just bought an "07" Eclipse GS that had the belt failure and will be ordering parts soon. Any...
  2. Problem Reports
    Hi Need some advice. 2007 2.4l 275K miles I've owned the car since 2010, 33K miles. I've had great luck with this car, no major issues ever, except for the brakes randomly going out on me about 2 years ago-which was fixed with a recall. Not sure if any of this is related. I screwed up...
  3. Problem Reports
    [ 2007 GS 5spd Manual ] Hey all. A few weeks ago I was driving slowly in 1st gear (clutch fully engaged) and I gave it a good punch of gas and let down smoothly. Ever since then, there has been a noise I can't figure out. - Sounds like a belt turning/humming. - Starts very low and rises in...
  4. Eclipse Performance
    Hey all. I never should have bolted on that CAI. I opened the box and it can't be closed. Previously, I was obsessed with my gaming PC's performance and I have maxed that thing out with expensive parts and overclocked just about everything that can be, and it seems this infectious need to...

    First time Eclipse owner. bought an 07 Spyder GT with only 16,000 km (10,000) miles. Even though it's 12 years old it looks like new. First time convertible owner as well. So far so good. Tons of fun to drive. Parked now for the winter (Manitoba, Canada) but I'm working on a few things for...

    Last weekend I had the bright idea to tear apart my interior to clean it and see what was all broke so I could replace it and make my drives a little more enjoyable. I realized a few months ago the front right door speaker was blown or has something going on with it, so I was just going to...

    Hi everyone, hope you all are doing well. So my 07 GT (6-speed) is experiencing two misfire codes. At first, it was P0304, so I checked the front bank of spark plugs and found the plugs and boots to be covered in oil. I changed the valve cover gasket and tube seals on those, and the code went...

    Hey guys, I just found the forum last night and the amount of info here is amazing for someone like me who doesn’t know about cars. I am in a rough spot financially and a student of mine is helping arrange a purchase of a 2009 Eclipse GS. It is manual transmission and I drove it for about 10...

    I searched on a few things and didn't see a discussion so I'm going to put my questions here ... My car: 2007 Spyder GT ... 97K auto , prior owner had just changed out the valve cover gaskets and installed a new top... I just had the timing belt (Dayco Premium), water pump and spark plugs...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi Folks, I have been a 4G GS owner since 2006 and was on the forum way back then. The car has never been back to the shop as I do all my own maintenance. I need to get the brake recall done, but that's another story. I just had my timing belt break on the way to work the other day and of...

I have had the car since 78k miles in that time no timing belt or major maintenance has been done. Obvous stuff like brakes, coolant and little things like that but no major...
  17. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I am thinking about purchasing the rre underdrive pulley. Just did my timing belt and everything so no problem there. Just having concerns about what I been reading all over the internet. As in it could cause the oil pump to go, crank, engine damage. I understand everything slows down due to the...
  18. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    As I slowly work my way through my long list of mods (currently getting an AIT body kit installed, next up is RRE header) I want to make sure I'm future-proofing my Eclipse. It's at 100k miles and I'm putting a shitload of time/money into it, so I'll need to get to at least 160k-180k miles on it...
