  1. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hello Everyone, I have a Eclipse GS Auto that is due for its transmission oil drain and exchange at 168,000 miles 2.4 L I4. Carfax shows transmission fluid changes every 30,000 miles since new done at the dealership. However, the transmission oil filter was only changed once at 36,365 miles...

    Hi y'all I noticed some oil leaking under my car. It not too bad but i think its transmission oil because its right next to the CV Drive Shaft axle. I noticed that there is a little clean cutout hole in the same spot underneath so its a factory cut, right? I also put in Redline trans gear fluid...

    Transmission fluid Manual 09 GS My local Mechanic put RedLine 75w-80 full synthetic gear oil when he replaced the clutch. a year later, I changed the CV axle shaft and lost a bit of trans fluid in the process so I decided to drain and refill myself. I went to O'Reilly's and they gave me a...

    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...

    I am having a problem replacing my clutch fluid. I followed the Shop Manual instructions and I can't seem to get the new fluid to go into the Master Clutch Cylinder. The manual says, open the bleeding screw, hold the clutch pedal down, close the bleeding screw, release the clutch pedal and then...

    Hello everyone, I have the 07 eclipse 6sp and my clutch pedal decided to give out on me when I was in an intersection. I couldn't shift into gears or anything. I had to get towed. Long story short, my clutch pedal is not working. I've checked for leaks and I didn't find any leaks from the...

    Woops I put this in the wrong area. ;O Sorry! I am putting this here so anyone looking for help with their Transaxle can come here. Manual Tearstone Manual - Automatic Transaxle Page 23A-4 - Transaxle Page 23A-401 - REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION <4A/T> Page 23A-409 - REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION...

    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...

    Have not been able to find info on this particular issue. My top will open up to the point that the tonneau cover is suppose to go down but does not. It will go down if I reverse action and hit close....the thing I discovered is that when opening when the motor is running and it is supposed...

    Hey guys, Was drifting driving on a dirt road and without damaging the car slid into a ditch. Was at about a 70 degree angle facing the ditch for around 30 minutes before I was pulled out. Car runs great, sort of. No problems at all driving and cosmetically looks the same, but I noticed my...

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone thinks that this siphon pump method would work on the F4A4B transmission? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgQtJ75EP04

    I've been in the process of updating hoses and flushing the power steering fluid on my car. I can say with certainty, if you haven't done it, get it done. The power steering fluid eats at the inside of the hoses and it discolors the fluid, Pieces of rubber can end up in you steering rack. I have...

    Hey! So I know there's a lot of material out there on how to properly bleed your clutch, but I decided to make a guide since me and the shop that worked on my car made some stupid mistakes on it. So! While I'm doing this on a 2.4, I assume the process is the same for the 3.8. If your clutch...

    Sorry for my newb question. This is my first sport car that I'm about to buy and have questions about it. First of all, the car has 108,500 miles on it and tried it and everything and it runs smoothly. The dealer are going to fix and change brakes, fix the AC and change transmission fluid. Is...

    HELLO everyone, I'm having trouble with my convertible top. I was verifying what could be wrong and found out that its very low on hydraulic fluid. I have search everywhere to buy the hydraulic fluid part number 6559a074 and cant find it anywhere. The only site that I found that sells it wont...
  16. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So, I have a Crank no start issue but everything is a okay (I've checked everything.) I've tried Starter fluid but I couldn't get the throttle body to open up so I basically sprayed it in the air tube, behind the air sensor so as not to mess with that. I held down the gas pedal but to no avail I...

    Title is straightforward enough, looking to know how much to buy to fill the system (since Mitsubishi says my car is not covered under the ABS recall). Local speedshop is running a sale on select fluids. Which would be the best buy?

    Story time: I called AAA for a jump start because I dont have jumper cables, the guy that came crossed the cables + to - and - to +. The car freaked out, wiper fluid was spraying and the wipers themselves were running although they were off in the car. The fuse on the battery blew, I have a...

    So I've been busy this winter collecting parts for a drivetrain overhaul come spring. I've picked up a clutch, flywheel, LSD and some MT-90 fluid. What else do I need to know/do before handing it over to the shop? Would rather have all my bases covered and leave nothing up to chance before the...

    Hi, I have a 2006 Eclipse, 4cyl and the brakes barely work as the pedal goes all the way to the floor with marginal effect of braking. I did bring my car to a dealership when I received the original ABS recall notice a few years ago. At that time I had no issue with the brakes and I was told...
