    So here's the lowdown: I have changed the camshaft sensor/crankshaft sensor, thermostat, coils, spark plugs, coolant, cleaned MAF, cleaned throttle body, put new clutch and throwout bearing. Oil is topped off good and no real leaks. The car drives real good for about fifteen minutes and then...

    I'm attempting to do a full coolant flush on my 2008 Eclipse GT tomorrow and as the manual states you don't just drain the coolant from the radiator. There are actually two bolts on the engine block, both front and back, to drain all the fluid out completely. My question is, is it necessary to...

    So this is my 3rd GT, had it for about a month already, no issues whatsoever. Yesterday I decided to give it a much needed oil change at my dads house, and since I was already doing that, I decided I should top off the coolant since my dad would comment how hot the engine would get (car has...

    I have a thread already by the name of "Crank no start" http://club4g.org/board/problem-reports/113297-crank-no-start.html But that's not the issue I want to point out here. I've repaired quite a bit on my car and it still does not start... Just cranks and cranks. So, I've been here searching...

    Warning: Do NOT do this mod. My Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor blew and my car went into limp mode at extremely high temps. and would not start. I almost had to have it towed but luckily there was an auto store nearby where I was able to plant the car under a tree. I had to pay $170 for a...

    Hey I noticed that some people have Black valve covers and I really like how they look compared to the grey one that I have. Do the older models come in black? Or did y'all paint them? Should I paint mine??? Also I am noticing that some of y'all have colored caps for coolant, PS, fusebox, etc...

    Hello all, (2008 GT, 100k miles) today another check engine light came on, this time a P0128 code. The dude at Autozone was absolutely shook and said he had never seen it and the computer didn't generate a solution for it. It read out like this for the full code - Code P0128 - Coolant...

    I'm coming up to 124k kilometers on what I can assume is the original coolant. Car runs fine, no overheating problems, but it may be high time for a little preventative maintenance. What coolant do I need and how much to fill? As some may know, I plan to get a few laps in this summer. Would it...

    I recently bought a 2006 Eclipse Gt, knowing full well that the AC was not working. It was a stick, it looked clean, 100k miles, so I went ahead and got it. A month later I love the car, but of course I haven't gotten around to fixing the A/C. I have read just about every A/C post in the...

    What coolant do I need to put in my 2007 GT? My manual isn't very helpful, and I don't want to wreck anything. I am planning on doing a flush like in this video: https://youtu.be/s--5ft5YiHg Thanks in advance for your help!

    I've done some searching, and I haven't been able to find a compiled list of the best fluids for our cars. If one already exists, let me know, and this thread can be deleted. Basically, what I think would be helpful to everyone is for you to write about your favorite brand of transmission fluid...

    Hello. Anyone near Burbank that can take a look? Haven't started the car in a couple of years. Charged the battery. Changed the oil. Could be debris build up. But, the radiator or radiator area is loud as hell with a metal/ metallic noise. Let it run for a bit and I saw smoke from the...

    Does tranny fluid or coolant run through the oem tranny cooler? Im not sure if tranny fluid runs through the cooler to lower the temp or if coolant runs through it and circulates around the tranny. I would assume the first. Reason i ask is i noticed coolant leaking from my 09 gt today and it...
