  1. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So I was driving today on the freeway and I was in second gear to overtake a big semi, but I didn’t realize I had to shift! (stupid me) so the the tach bounced off the limiter and I just hear my exhaust go “pop pop pop” and the car shut off. I coasted into a gas station, tried to start it up...

    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...
  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...

    This Eclipse right here is a certified badass 4G if you hadn't already seen it on YouTube. I can't do most of the custom amazing mods he's done for performance, but I'm wondering if I might be able to emulate a backyard version of his custom one-off front bumper mod. You can see it here in...
  5. Eclipse Performance
    I'm drenched in confidence today, although that might be baked on sweat because it was 90 degrees outside. I just performed my first modification on my darling Eclipse and fitted her with a cold air intake! This is probably pretty commonplace around these parts, but for me this is only my...
  6. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hello. I got my 09 Spyder GS so I could learn to work on a car, and now that I've got my tool set, I'm planning to jump in with some intake modifications to build some confidence. Next week I plan to get my ducks in a row for a DC CAI install, TB bypass, GT TB swap, and intake resonator delete...
  7. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Upon removing my cylinder head to replace a blown head gasket, I was cleaning up the mating surfaces on the head and as I spun it around to get to each surface, these fell out. Two of them fell onto the ground and I was not able to tell exactly where they came from and one was loose inside one...
  8. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hello, all, My tranny is kinda leaking just a tiny bit and the bottom "metal holder" (my guess it's an oil pan or whatever), is banged up a bit (I guess from a collision before I bought it). So my question is - what is that "metal holder" part called (marked red in the photo attached) so I can...

    Planning on doing an ATF change soon, and i can't seem to find the part number for the 4g GS 4 speed transmission drain plug gasket. Any Ideas? Or at least the size so I might be able to find a comparable one. Thanks!

    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...

    Hi all, First off thank you to all the moderators, creators, and fellow DIY'ers that have contributed to this site as it has served to be an invaluable resource to me this past 5-6 months of diagnosing the notorious "p0421 and p0431" engine trouble codes. This car was given to me as a gift...

    Had a small oil leak, dealer diagnosed as valve cover gasket leak. Replaced that and spark plugs last week, but still getting the leak. Went back today and now told likely front seals and/or rear main seal leak. I have an appointment Monday at RRE for headers install, but now not sure what to...
  15. Problem Reports
    So about a month ago my battery light started going on and off. My Battery from Advanced Auto is only a year and half old. Then one day at a red light the car just completely shut down. Engine and all electrical gone. After about 30 seconds of panic the car finally fired up and I made it to...
  16. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey all, I'm thinking about ordering some 0.125" teflon sheet to make some phenolic spacers for my intake manifold and throttle body. I wanted to see if anyone else has done this/used the pre-made ones because I'm curious if its necessary to use a regular gasket on both sides such a spacer or...
  17. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I had to replace my valve cover gasket and tube seals because I found oil on my coil boots, it was most pronounced on cylinder 1. When I tightened it down, I stupidly tightened it as tight as I could (within reason) and ended up snapping a bolt. Replaced all six(?), tightened them down...

    Someone please help me out.. I am trying to change the oil pan gasket because it is leaking oil. I got all the bolts off except for the last two. They are really close to the transmission and I don't see a way to get a socket in there. I have searched but have not found where anyone...
  19. Problem Reports
    Hi I've been getting the code P0421 and low gas mileage. First thing I checked was if my spark plugs were fouled up. When I checked them, all my spark plugs had oil. So I replaced the valve cover gasket and spark plug well gasket thinking that might fix the problem. I erased the code and drove...
  20. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hello guys! I am changing the spark plugs next week on my v6 manual and had a couple of questions- 1) Is there a gasket/seal under the intake manifold which I need to change? 2) I checked one of my coils and it had a bit of oil on it, what could be the possible reason for it ? 3) Since I...
