  1. Problem Reports
    Can anyone help me with this? Not sure what to do next but I think my replacement compressor is unworking in my 09GT - Had the original compressor in and I believe I messed it up (last year) because I took an old can of refrigerant and used that to top up and then shortly thereafter the...

    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...

    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...

    Hey guys, I think I may have a leak in my filler neck but I can't find it anywhere, I have to pour gas super slow or else it leaks and I can't really go past half a tank of gas either. I've gotten underneath the car but I'm not sure what I'm looking for. It looks like the previous owner has...

    Hey I used a full system scan tool to scan every module in my eclipse, and other than the P0455 large evap leak that I'm aware of, I was able to read a bunch of other codes out of some of the more obscule modules of the car, like U1111 which is apparently always set in a few of the modules...

    Hi All, Working on a friends 2006 GS who's on break from college in MO and he had no cold AC operation this past summer. Low side is reading 25PSI High side is reading 25PSI Thought it might need to be topped off a bit with R134 but compressor clutch won't engage when trying to fill. We are...

    Anyone have their ABS Module replaced due to recall? Mines sprung a leak and curious if there is a different model number available for replacement. Mine is MN116367, Found a 2010 model but it's labeled MN116368. Can't find whether it's a direct replacement or not.

    Hey everyone, I'm a bit new to this forum. First off, I have a 2007 GS with a 4g69. Its got about 98k miles on it, and has a pretty bad exhaust leak from the front pipe. Cracked at the middle of the "Y' and has two holes right next to em as well. Not to mention, signs of leaking gaskets at just...

    Leak developed in my roof, started above passenger front window. Signs of leaking on the rear pillar. Seems to be a crack in the upper passenger side welding that runs along the roof. I was told by a body shop that they would just run some sealant along the welding to do the fix, and/or reset...

    Hi all. Yesterday while installing my exhaust at a friends house, his dad (also a mechanic and someone who does AC stuff on cars and industrial units) helped me find the leak in my AC system. The question is, what part is this? My friend said that it is likely an "O Ring" but if that's the...

I have search everywhere to buy the hydraulic fluid part number 6559a074 and cant find it anywhere. The only site that I found that sells it wont...

    Hey all Bought an 06 GS with ~114k on it a few weeks ago, everything seemed to be good with it til a week ago the engine light came on. Seemed to be running fine so I let it run for the week and brought it to my mechanic on friday for a full inspection. Nothing really wrong with it, but the...

    I've got several persistent DTC's one of which is P0442; EVAP System Leak (small leak). Dealer smoke tested the system and said there was smoke coming from the fuel tank seam and filler neck area. They claim the fuel tank requires replacement which was quoted at $3k. The car has 335,000 KM on...

    Just recently started happening. No loss of power or codes being thrown, which Sabertooth said intake leaking would throw a code really quick. I have an OBD2 device in the mail to check live data with the car running, but here is a video of it happening. Only happens above 4.5k RPMs and gets...

    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...
