  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    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...

  7. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So yeah I'd been tuning on a mixture for forever and finally made the full switch to e85. I saved $12 just on the first tank! It has better drivability, more torque, more HP, not that bad mileage (adjusting my driving has more than made up for the loss and actually gained 1mpg over when I was on...
  8. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I have a 2007 GS with the 2.4 liter engine, 132K miles. My son is the primary (only) driver of this car and it died on him on the highway yesterday. He claims the steering "locked up" but I assume he just means it got hard to steer after the loss of power steering. We were a few miles from home...
  9. Motorsports (Racing)
    So, I’ve raced a bunch of cars before and never posted a story here, but I thought this one which happened last night was worth posting... So, I’m just driving home from work, minding my business, when I get to a light, and some guy in a Subaru BRZ with a bunch of decals pulls up to me and...
  10. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So this is wierd i think i may have the same overvolting issue that Neoclod had. The drive into town was fine. On the way home my traction control and loss of traction lights came on the CLE was already on because of my O2 sensor i need to replace. This is what I found. I cleared it thinkin...
  11. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    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...
  12. Eclipse Graveyard
    It has been a fun ride, but my 4G has been declared a total loss. I parked it for the winter, and when it got nice and sunny out, I went to go for a joy ride, but instead found 4 inches of water and mold all over my interior. Under seats rusted out, all of my airbag lights on (passenger...
  13. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Okay...my first post and I know I am a noob and I promise I just spent 30 minutes searching the whole forum. :D So...I notice some power loss when the A/C compressor is running. Always been that way. I know that on all cars the compressor will run even when the A/C is off when the selector is...
  14. Spyder Specific
    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...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Here is the story, As you may have seen in a previous post I took my 06 gt apart a bit in order to change timing belt, waterpump, and a few pulleys. Upon entering my engine I came to learn that all my belts, pump, and pulleys have been replaced by the previous owner and were in perfect shape...
  16. Member's Rides
    So I guess its time to do a ride thread. I’m, ohhhh, only say 11 years late to the party, but still too soon for Mitsu to admit they shouldn't have abandoned an inexpensive and reliable platform that to this day will still turn some heads. This has been my daily driver since September of 2009...
  17. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So my 2006 3.8 GT had developed a terrible upper valve train ticking. It got to the point where it was really embarrassing and noticeable even when inside the car windows up.I decided to tackle it and lucky for the car, when I decide to fix something I do not stop until the job is done. The...
  18. Audio & Lighting
    Hi club4g! I've been lurking the forums for a while now ever since I got my eclipse. This past week I've been working on installing a 12" SA-12 into my car, and I'm powering it with a JL XD1000/1v2. I ran my power wire through the factory grommet in the fender, and I was going to use a line...
  19. Automotive For Sale/Wanted

  20. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Ok guys, I apologize if this is covered somewhere, but I haven't been able to find a thread that helps. Last year, after my '07 Spyder GS had been sitting neglected for way too long (work truck takes priority) I drove it across town to our new house. Long story short it developed a pretty...
