  1. Interior and Exterior Modifications (Show)
    Hey everyone. First time on the forum but I’ve browsed around before many times without an account. Anyways, I used the search function and couldnt really find what I was looking for. I’m wanting to upgrade my headlights and bulbs but I wanted to get some good recommendations before pulling...
  2. Audio & Lighting
    Have a question about hid headlights being dim. I just acquired a 2009 Eclipse GT and the hid's seem dim. 1st step was to replace both headlight bulbs but thru a mixup only 1 hid bulb was replaced. The headlights seem a little brighter, but in general still seem dull/dim. The clear plastic of...
  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    About to look at a 2006 GS 4 cylinder today. It's a first year car so would assume they have to work through some first year hiccups. Car is one owner and under 40k miles so maybe cars gremlins have not occurred yet. I know how to inspect for previous and body work along with general...
  4. Driveline
    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...
  5. Problem Reports
    Hello...I am new to this forum. Just bought a used 2009 Eclipse GS for my son as his first car...got a great deal, and he loves it! My apologies in advance if this question has been asked/answered/beaten to death, but I have done searches on both the forum and Google in general and have seen...
  6. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Hey fellas, I bought my son a 2006 Eclipse GS for his first car. He’s pumped! Car needed some TLC, but started and ran fine when we bought it. We put it on a flatbed and brought it home (tires, brakes were too bad to drive IMO). Fast forward a few weeks after doing some general cosmetic...
  7. Other cars
    Hey guys, I know this is so far different from a 4G that it probably doesn't belong here, but I just wanted some second opinions on general car maintenance :) My sister has an 06 Saturn Vue V6 and the battery light is on. She replaced the battery, but it still remains. I've googled the problem...
  8. Driveline
    So, I have a few problems with my driveline - I think. 2007 GS - 5MTX 1. My gears grind if I shift too quickly. There doesn't seem to be specific gears that do it, but I've noticed it on gears 2,3 and 5. 2. When I let off and reapply gas, there's a jerk each time. When I let off, there is a...
  9. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So, title. I've got a 2006 Eclipse. I went through my insurance and they sent Safelite out to replace my windshield (pretty big crack horizontally along almost the entire thing), but they needed to order driver's side molding because there's a small crack in mine. Finally, two weeks later they...

    2.4L MPG: Up to 20 city / 28 highway I am getting 18-19 consistently with my MPG app. I do a lot of city driving and when I drive the interstate its for about 20 miles and I am running 80MPH so the RPMs are a little high. Do you think the interstate RPMs are killing my MPG? I dont redline...

  12. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hey guys I'm just gonna ask a general question. I have the newest style RRE headers and I'm about to get them ceramic coated before installing it on my car in the coming week. Ive read on the forum that when you buy OBX headers, they come with a down pipe. I was completely aware before...
  13. Member's Rides
    Sorry for the couple sideways shots, phone camera is annoying like that. 2006 GT, currently at 101k miles, and freshly cleaned and waxed with the Black Box Kit. No experience with waxing or detailing in general, so it might not be the best job. Not worried about posting images with plates-...
  14. Other cars
    My wife has a 2016 Outlander GT AWD that has Yokohama Geolander AT-S that need replacing. We live in Los Angeles and barely see rain, but she goes skiing a few times a year and I'm not a fan of using all-seasons for heavy snow and ice. In the past I've taken it 'soft roading' on unpaved, snow...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    There may already be threads and I just wasn't able to locate them. However, I wondering if you think that it would be beneficial to assemble a thread with torque specs for bolts, what fluids to use and just general help. I know not everyone has their owners manual. Like I said, there may...
  16. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    [Just skip to the bottom if you'd like to skip the theatrics] "GO USE THE SEARCH BUTTON!" "GO READ A SOMETHING!" Yes, this is most likely what you are thinking; another thread about some newbie kid wanting to turbocharge his V6 Eclipse- and you'd be correct, because I do! But I digress. That...

    Hello Club 4G! This thread is mostly a formality, I do not plan to post much since I don't yet own a 4G Eclipse. However, I landed an excellent job back in late march, and have been saving every paycheck. Despite some hiccups, I will be at $3500 this Friday, and will continue to keep saving as I...

    okay, so i have a 2006 eclipse 2.4 4 cylinder and recently my timing belt broke... long story short i replaced the belt to find i lost compression on cylinder 3 and 4 due to either bent valves or whatnot.... so rather than do the rebuild due to the approaching 200,000 mile mark i bought a new...

    Hey, I'm George, currently own a silver 05 GS that needs to be put out to pasture, so I got myself a silver 06 GS. My project is a full rebuild of a 1949 Merc, but I love the Eclipse in general, so I had to stick with it for my daily driver for the next few years. Not much to know about me, I...
