    So for a while I had been feeling something that I couldn't quite describe, It felt like it was coming from the front left of the car usually would start too feel it at around 30-35mph an it would stop anywhere between 40-55mph. I first thought it was something to do with wheels/ suspension so I...

    Hey guys, quick question. I've been having this problem for a while now and can't seem to pinpoint what's causing it. So basically it only happens when I've driven the car for a while and warmed up, or when I'm soft braking at low speeds, like in a parking lot or something, but it doesn't occur...

    Flywheel Issues 2006 GT v6 MT Hi, I have a 2006 Eclipse GT 3.8L Manual Trans and have recently pulled the flywheel and was going to replace it when i noticed there were no shims. It had been burning up starters and this may be the reason from what i've read. One guy listed part #MD365781 and...

    Hi guys, So I have a problem with my top. It is making a grinding sound at the end of the top-up and top-down cycle when I go to put it up or down. Actually, it sounds like its slipping, but it's definitely under stress. I put the top up halfway and looked around, and found what looks like a...

    I mistakenly posted this in the wrong forum so I'm posting it here now. I have an '06 GS with manual tranny and a short time ago, I started hearing a humming/grinding noise. It sounded and acted just like a wheel bearing. After doing the swerving test and jacking it up with both front wheels off...
  6. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Im new to the forum so forgive me if I'm making a mistake here. Im working on a 2008 Eclipse 2.4L with a standard trans. The car was not shifting and slipping under load. Also, it was making a horrible grinding sound. I read about the transmission issues so i decided to pull the transmission and...

    Hey all, I bought a 07 Eclipse back in March with 72k on the odometer. About 2 months later I started having some problems shifting. It's sometimes hard to get into first, and shifting into second sometimes results in a LOT of grinding, I can feel the gears spinning through my shift nob. When...
  8. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hi guys, I was wondering if a potential transmission swap from maybe a Mazda 3 or 6 (I understand that they are the same as the GT i.e. AISIN BG6) would be much of a pain? My gears are grinding when I shift too fast, so has anyone heard about something like this? Please have in mind that...

    Anyone have any issues with their starter on the 3.8? We've had the car approximately a week. The starter has made a grinding noise twice. First time I thought the wife held the key too long until it did it to me. I'm wondering if it's the starter or a solenoid. The dealer had a solenoid...

    I've searched on the forum to see if anyone has or had the same problem as I have but I was not able to find one. I deeply apologize if I have missed one. So far, looks like I may be the only person with this problem.:ugh: I have 2008 GT automatic. Most of the car is stock, never touched engine...

    Hey, my car started making a terrible metal on metal grinding noise today, and my uncle looked at it and said a couple of bolts from the exhaust heat shield had rusted through and it was dangling on the exhaust. He recommended just taking it off and leaving it, said there are millions of cars on...

    Hey all, my friends 2006 lancer ralliart with 168000kms is making a really loud grinding noise. A bit of a backstory, he bought the car about 3.5 years ago for $2600 with 167,000kms, had the original timing belt so i suggested he change it out asap. He took it to his mechanic, who changed out...

    So i got the 3.5 stage clutch in the eclipse. Bled it a few times now and installed a new slave clutch cylinder for it. My question is that sometimes i seem to need to give it more gas then a regular clutch to keep it from jerking like its ready to die. This normal for higher stage clutches...

    So I got a pair of Black Zinc electro coated SLOTTED rotors from C Quence. They had a sale so I got them shitted to me for $130 which seems like a good price considering the other prices that I saw on rotors. These are made in California and made to order. The rotors were shipped in basic...

    Hi all, Serious issue i discovered today with the heavy snow in calgary. When i press my breaks softly its no problem, but when i press it all the way, it fights back, only on this one particular icy surface. Went over it 5 times to make sure, and its just that surface. Anyhow, why would the...

  17. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So recently my manual trans '06 GT has been making a whining/grinding noise when in neutral, it goes away when the clutch is pressed in. But recently (only when shifting, and only when in a higher RPM range 5k+) my gas pedal gets stuck all the way down and my clutch stays dis-engaged. So it just...

    I have a 2008 gs, just recently bought it and over the past month i've noticed a grinding noise coming from the passenger side of the engine. When idle you can hear it inside the car and if you pop the hood you can hear it from the passenger side. I'm not really good with cars, like I don't...

    Hello there! Recently found a terrible grinding noise when using my driver's side window and after some research am very confident it is the regulator. Does anyone know a website I could find a replacement regulator on? and also how to remove the door trim and get access to the window components...
