  1. Problem Reports
    Recently bought an '06 GT - didn't try the air until it got hot - no air. Pump was not engaging - all lights were coming on. Found a small brass valve on top of the AC pump that was stuck open. It looks almost like a needle/seat from a carb. Pressure safety shut off? Not sure but I took...
  2. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Alrighty, So as I have postponed or rejected the turbo idea due to the fact that I want this car to remain as a fun daily and don't want to really risk it's functionality. I am back to bolt ons. I know the headers are the top pic for the 6g75 but I have been doing some thinking. I was thinking...
  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Welp, after 220k miles with just routine oil changes and maintenance it decided it had enough. A few months after I gave it a fresh tune up too. Driving to work on Friday, It all of a sudden started mis-firing and knocking bad. I immediately pulled into a parking lot and as soon as my foot...
  4. Problem Reports
    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...

    Winter is coming! Be ready to put on a set of snow tires and prepare to brave the elements each time you leave your home or workplace. But one thing you don’t have to put up with anymore is your dim headlights equipped with factory-installed yellowish halogen bulbs. Today, you can drastically...

    What's up guys... I'd like to purchase an OBD2 reader and have been researching the best option that will work well with my 2010 Eclipse. I dug through this forum and found a couple of very old threads discussing the best OBD2 readers, but I figured I'd start a fresh one (technology has changed...
  7. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Running into a wall here, Been through the manual and it only talks of valve stem seals as a fresh build with the head off the block. Does anyone know how to properly get the rockers out of the way while you replace the valve stem seals?

    Hi peeps, My name is jajajalol2 (not actually) and I've recently gotten into the car world honestly not that long ago. I was a little late to the Gran Turismo 6 train but still had an amazing time testing out the Evo, Eclipse, GTO, etc. and reading up all about them. And to be honest, I think...

    This is kinda long, but please take the time to read it because I would really appreciate it. So about 2-3 weeks ago, I thought I hydrolocked my engine because I accidentally drove through a deep puddle after rain, and as soon as I drove through it, my engine seized and refused to turn over. All...
  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Okay so i need to replace mine, but have a couple of questions where to get one. Checked multiple places and they don't have one like all the chain stores, rock auto and summit. Would the energy suspension motor mount bushing fit on the transmission mount or is that a different fit? If not...
  11. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I went to a new mechanic to diagnose my oil leak. He said it wasn't the Front Crank Seals or the Rear Main Seal. He reached around the right rear side of the engine and had fresh oil on his hand, said it's likely the MiVEC Sensor o-ring needs to be replaced. I've searched this site and a few OEM...
  12. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So, I started throwing the infamous P0421 bank 1 cat code. Was hoping it was just an O2 sensor, but dealer says the cat is failing. Spoke to RRE and they said if 1 was failing, the other is right behind it and best to replace both. So, approx. $2500. Considering I'm at 11 years and 101,000...

  14. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hey all, I come from 3000gt world and I am considering doing a MIVEC swap. I'm more than capable, just looking for some info. I've done quite a lot of searching but only find threads that are 2011 or older, none of which have any real data/specs/results in them. I feel like I'm chasing my tail...
  15. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Just wanted an opinion on if the way I drive my GT can be considered harmful to the engine/components in any way. Since I've got plenty of low end, I typically short shift at ~2000rpm and rarely feel the need to exceed 3k. I never let my car warm up before I drive and most days my commute is...

  17. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I've been having some trouble locating wheels and tires for my car. I've got a fresh set of 185/65/15 Michelin X-ice xi3s on steelies that might do the job. Is it safe to run a -2 size for a few weeks? (Will I bottom out?)

    Here is an accessory for the bottom part of the door panel trim. It is a really great piece, BRAND NEW NEVER USED, it still has the original backing to the sticky adhesion area. I originally bought it for my eclipse, but was moving when i bought it so I forgot about it and never installed it...

    The wife and I just went back to the open top scene with a Black 2008 GS Spyder. Been a motorhead since the late 60s. My first car was a BRG 1970 Triumph TR-6 so we have had a love affair for fresh air for years. I have a lot to learn about the 4Gs but within 24 hours of signing on the dotted...
