  1. 2000-2005 Eclipse (General 3G)
    My sons eclipse gt just got a engine swap, the old one had a roller bearing issue, and would've cost a arm an a leg to replace. Got him a new used one, and everything was great, until the back lifters started clicking, changed the oil, after using motor flush, no noise, then it started back up...

    Anyone elses absolutley hate lifter tick. I think there is a little more than lifter tick in this video. Are the stock lash adjusters 1mm or 3mm in the 6g75? If they are 1mm I plan on getting new 3mm ones if they are 3mm I plan on pulling and deep cleaning. https://youtu.be/Jh9EDeyxeMI...
  3. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I am getting a lifter tick at cold start-up and have decided to change all the lifters while I adjust the valves. How many lifter are there in an 07 GT? I am assuming there are 24 but I just want to be sure. Also, where is the best place to purchase the set?

    Ok I will try to be as exact as I can be, but I am new to this so bare with me. About 2 weeks ago. I started getting a rough idle and could feel the trembling through the steering wheel. It is gotten a bit worse. It makes the rear view mirror shake slightly. No it has a rougher than usual start...

    My daughter bought a 2007 eclipse gs a while back - now has 119 k miles. Have noticed the 2.4 motor uses about 1/3 to 1/2 quart of oil in 1000 to 1200 miles. No noticeable oil leaks, no oil stains under car, and no blue smoke or smoke upon startup. Spark plugs pulled and are burning very clean...

    I went and got an oil change the about ten days ago, but now the engine starts a really loud mechanical click (not the normal lifter click) when it starts and until it starts warming up a bit. The oil dipstick is right at the top circle, but before it was a bit higher (I thought it had too much...

    adjusted valve lash today. doubled checked all gaps .008" intake and .012" exhaust. took it for a ride feels perfect. i assume the lifter tick noise is supposed to b a bit louder after the adjustment seeing that i had to make the gaps a tad bigger. just want to make sure that the louder ticking...
  11. Problem Reports
    I've been hearing a strange sound coming from the leftside of the engine recently. It was happening before I had the timing belt replaced and is still happening afterwards. I only mention it because that seems to be the general area the noise is coming from. I tried recording it but the lifter...
  12. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I'm actually convinced I'm hearing two separate issues here, which really sucks but hopefully they'll be covered by warranty anyways. I'd like to try and diagnose before I take it in, if anybody cares to help. The engine has had what sounds like a light lifter tick for a short while now...

  15. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Im going all motor and with that I want to rev to 8000...what needs to be done? High performave valve springs and lifter? Smaller crack pulley? Lighter crank and internals? Stronger head bolts? Compression change? Bore change? If a stock s2000 can hit 7500-8000 I'm sure a highly moded one can go...
  16. Problem Reports
    Ok so I have been noticing for about 1,000 miles that my car has a weird squeeky chirpy sound at idle. I popped the hood and it seemed to come from the serpentine belt area of the bay. The chirping is also kinda rythmic. Do you guys think that its the belt? Do they usually make that noise...

  18. Problem Reports
    Hey guys, been a while. I noticed that my engine started sounding a little louder than usual. At first, I thought it was in my head. Last Monday, I checked the oil and it was right between the two dots (closer to the top one). So I didn't put any in. Got an oil change 2 months ago (running...

    So I was on my way home from Class mid november minding my own business listening to some tunes. I go to pull off the highway and everything is fine except for this strange ticking noise that I had thought to be the lifters. Not the case. I start pulling on to this main road and the noise got...
