  1. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I have a 2008 eclipse with the 4cly engine. having what seemed at first to be a starter problem where it would try to turn over and sound like it was shorting out, no smoke or anything I could detect. wiggling the key did not really help. It got progressively worse and at one point now the air...

    I purchased an 09 eclipse GT and it comes with the anti-theft protection. the only key that I have that starts the car does not have a wireless transmitter with it. So I cannot unlock and lock the car with the key. I can lock the car but when I get back into the car the alarm goes off and...

    So I had a code on my 2006 mitsubishi eclipse gs 2.4 L 4 cylinder. Where it said Catalytic converter warm up efficiency was bad. I was told it could be one of a few things. The MAF sensor (I replaced it, and made no change) the catalytic converter was bad, or that it was the downstream oxygen...

    Hi guys, I’ve been having a mystery issue here that I am having some issues diagnosing. I can provide extra info if it might help. A couple of weeks ago the car would not start but if I took the key out and put it back in then it would with no issues. It doesn’t crank or anything when it...

    Finally went ahead and got the custom flip key I purchased from Ryguy cut & cloned over the weekend. I'm already seeing a solid 20-25 HP gain (...sike!) The design I got from him is "Carbon Mist - Carbon Fiber". Looks amazing IRL; the hydro-dip is high quality and has some pearl additive to it...

    Someone tried ramming their screwdriver in my door keyhole... I guess in an attempt to break into my car or vandalism... Both windows have been busted out and replaced with a mismatched tint... So it should be clear to would be thieves that I've learned my lesson by now and don't leave anything...

    Okay bear with me, and lets just avoid the internal "hey. hey thats not safe, you're gonna have a hard time. I poop with lofi cafe music playing, ughhh" and think about the joy and process instead. The 4G by no means is a light sporting coupe, and the market for my 4g69 is smaller than most of...

    Hi Folks, I have been a 4G GS owner since 2006 and was on the forum way back then. The car has never been back to the shop as I do all my own maintenance. I need to get the brake recall done, but that's another story. I just had my timing belt break on the way to work the other day and of...

    My 2006 eclipse door locks have stopped working, but only when the car is off. The fuel gauge has also stopped returning to E when the car is off and jumps around a bit when the car is turned back on before reading the appropriate level. Additionally the rear hatchback button now only works...
