    Good day all. Bought a 2007 GS almost 2 years ago. Like the car a lot, although spending around $2000/year repairs/upkeep which is more than I thought it would be. 100000miles when I bought it, now has 112000miles. I'm Jack.
  2. Problem Reports
    I'll just explain everything and you can straighten me out... 2007 Eclipse 4 cyl auto trans, 215K miles. I'm driving and the car suddenly goes into 3rd gear. D on the dashboard is blinking. I putt putt to my work and turn it off. Later in the day I come out and everything is now fine. Go...
  3. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    A while back I changed my spark plugs for the first time and noticed some oil in cylinders #2 and #3. It wasn't an alarming amount and it was mostly up by the top of the plug and not at the bottom, so after a chat with my mechanic friend I decided it wasn't an emergency. I bought the valve cover...

    Hey everyone! I'm Brandon, and I am actually pretty set on getting an 06 Eclipse GT as a first car (yes, I am 16). This will be my first car to work on too most likely, and I hope to be welcomed by this community and learn more about my potential car and everyone else's! Have a great day! :P

    This is how our conversation is going thus far. This guy has deleted Five of my posts in a matter of hours because we dont agree and he thinks he has the authority to choose what is posted and what isnt even if it falls within the guidelines. You are not the end all, be all of what gets...
  7. Problem Reports
    I've got something going on with my Eclipse 4G, and I can't figure out what it is. I'm trying to avoid taking it to a shop and blowing 500% more money than what the repair is worth on mechanics time and repairing parts that aren't the problem. So I thought I'd ask here first. Here's the deal...
  8. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    I have newer EBC rotors and OEM pads (<3k miles) and fairly new brake fluid (ATE 200) and considering swapping front pads for track day. I've heard that this can cause major rotor warping, and also that it's perfectly fine as long as both get proper bedding (street to track, track to street). My...

    Parked on a hill and the front has around the right amount of gap that I would like, how are speed bumps with it this low? My corvette scrapes everything above 2.5” is this how a low eclipse is? Lol dumb question but kinda curious as she’s gonna need shocks one day anyway
  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    hi guys, I have an issue with my car, i got it about a year ago and recently I was traveling around 200km each day for about 3 weeks. at some point the car started having like a lag when accelerating. the rebs go up and then down and then it accelerates. so I get to work and notice that on both...

    Hey guys, I'm Mason and I'm from the Utica-Rome area in NY, I've been using this forum a lot to answer basic questions I've had about my '07 Eclipse Spyder GS 5 speed and it's been a lot of help! I figured I'd finally make an account so I could participate more in the conversations. I've had...
  12. Problem Reports
    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...
  13. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    The other day I went and test drove an 08 Spyder GT MT. I currently drive a 2017 Ford Fusion with the 2.0 turbo, for comparison. It felt a lot slower than I expected. It was fun regardless, but it didn't feel much faster than my Fusion. I expected a lot more oomph. More pull. More torque. The...
  14. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    G'day, I didn't drive my car for about 3 months and now that I'm back in it the shifter is rather tight. It has been slowly loosening up with driving but I'm curious to know if anyone has had this problem and what they did to solve it? Thanks

    I wanted to say Hello to the Forum and after reading a bit I cant find anyone with this specific problem but it could be some where I just have not found it yet. I have a 2008 Spyder GS and it just died in traffic the other day. I have zero fuel pressure. it is not my fuel pump. I know own...
  16. Tuning and Electronics
    My Eclipse is down and I've got a replacement ECU for it, but ECUFlash is not working with my new Tactrix OpenPort 2.0 cable. Is there anyone in Southern California (Inland Empire) that has an MMCFlash dongle I can rent/borrow for a day so I can flash my old ECU contents to the replacement...
  17. 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...

There is no car show like this anywhere and no bigger Mitsu event in the Upper Midwest! This year's event is happening on Sunday, August 25th from 11am...
  19. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hi Folks, I have a fully loaded Eclipse GT, which I bought brand new in 2012 (late 2012). I love the car but the only thing I didn't like was the color, (Silver). I traded in my jet-black 2008 GT (which had no extra options and was ‘stripped’) for this one. Among the reasons why I got a great...
  20. Problem Reports
    So the 4G is exactly like the BMW 850CSi, in that when you open the door the window drops a few mm, then raises up a few mm when you close it so that the window gets a good seal. The other day at work it was monsoon-level raining. When I got in my car to leave at the end of the day and closed...
