    Hey folks, Did a money shift today and over revved the engine :ugh: 3rd to 2nd right around 80mph/redline and the tach went straight up to 8k rpm in no time. Stayed there for about half a second before I kicked in the clutch and put the car in neutral. Luckily I dodged a bullet since there...

    2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS ( 6g72 ) 108,XXX Miles I was noticing some weird noises this last week when I would turn. Had wrote it off as ball bearings and ordered the part. This did not fix the issue as last night my power steering completely died as did the car. Power steering started getting...

    Hi, guys, I'm a proud owner of 2008s 4G, but the clock console is making weird noises while driving on a bumpy road. Can you, please, provide some info how to remove the whole thing or to fix it better, so it won't shake around while driving? Thanks!

    Hi Guys, So yet another issue with the eclipse. Went to esso carwash, might be an important detail that the weather was -15C give or take a couple degrees. During the wash car rpm started dropping under normal idle rpm so i quick shutdown the car before it did that by itself. Once wash ended...

    I am facing an issue whereby when I push brake while passing over a pothole .. Or a bump my break paddle goes all the way the way down to floor and it doesn't break. After this my break starts making weird noises. I just had someone install new rotors and breaks but the problem presists. If...

    So my E-brake makes a horrible grinding noise when I pull up on it and I am in motion. I changed my brake pads not so long ago and didnt recall seeing anything wrong, what are some possible causes for this? Also my E-Brake basically does not work if I am in neutral and on a steep incline.

    Hello guys, As the title says, I just think I might have blown my engine. Yesterday's afternoon I went whole red line on 1st gear, didn't noticed I was on manual mode(sportronic trans) I just shifted on to 2nd and nothing happened (at least on that moment), I just kept driving normal. I got...

    okay s-techs are installed along with 4 new struts, and I got an alignment. I'm on 20" wheels 245/35 tires and 30mm spacers... Everyonce in awhile when I turn the tires rub.. But I am hearing a lot of noises while driving and any small bump in the road, is this normal? It's nothing crazy loud...

    I have noticed that when I try to shift into 3rd at a sort of fast pace that there is this weird noise, I don't know how to explain it other than something hitting a box. Like if I was pushing the shifter too hard or something when trying to get to 3rd gear. Other than that it acts perfectly...

    I brought a 2007 Eclipse a couple of months ago its got the 4 cyl. in it and last week the timing belt went. No weird noises or anything, I think I got lucky and that's all that happened, still checking it out. Can anyone recommend a repair shop in the Bristol/ Levittown PA area that knows what...

    I just installed s-tech on my car about two or three months ago. Recently I've heard clunking noises in the back whenever I go ove bumps or potholes. The ride quality is also terrible. I know that my two rear shock are definitely blown. My question is what all do I need to buy? I'm planning on...

    New member here and was drawn in as I am working on a 2006 Eclipse GS that my girlfriend owns and have a couple questions. After returning from a 100+ mile trip we realized the car was making very odd tapping noises. The car has 105k miles on it and somehow the original timing belt has lasted...

    Does anyone else have whistling noises coming from thier door? It seems as if it hasn't been sealed properly, but yet it is water tight. Driver side door above 25-30 mph. No it is not my intake either. I know it is coming from where the door meets the rubber insulator trim. Is this natural...

    Hey guys, i just got 2 10 inch Kicker subwoofers and a 1100 watt amp installed in my 07 Eclipse, to top it off i got a nice double din Pioneer touch screen head unit.
