  1. Problem Reports
    [ 2007 GS 5spd Manual ] Hey all. A few weeks ago I was driving slowly in 1st gear (clutch fully engaged) and I gave it a good punch of gas and let down smoothly. Ever since then, there has been a noise I can't figure out. - Sounds like a belt turning/humming. - Starts very low and rises in...

    Last weekend I had the bright idea to tear apart my interior to clean it and see what was all broke so I could replace it and make my drives a little more enjoyable. I realized a few months ago the front right door speaker was blown or has something going on with it, so I was just going to...

    It has just occured to me that I apparently have never posted an introduction (nor well any post at all) despite having 'joined' 5ish years ago? Oh well, I guess I am still a 'new' member from the posting perspective. Before my eclipse, had a Chevrolet pick-up and worked on it all the time...

    Engine maybe has rod knock? I've been driving this car for about a year now (Bought it in February 2018) and everything has seemed fine. Car has 135,000 miles on it. I never noticed anything until the recent oil change. For some reason, after changing the oil last time, I started hearing a...

    Any one else have an issue with their gauges not running correctly. Running oil temp on top pressure on bottom. The pic is when the eclipse is fully warmed up. 40 is the lowest for oil temp and 150 is the highest for preasure. They will switch off every once in a while but will go back to...
  6. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So this is my 3rd GT, had it for about a month already, no issues whatsoever. Yesterday I decided to give it a much needed oil change at my dads house, and since I was already doing that, I decided I should top off the coolant since my dad would comment how hot the engine would get (car has...

    Well I ordered some stuff. the sandwich plate should be here about the time I'm due for another oil change so that will work out. Everything else will go on when I have spare time. Second job is funding this all Sent from my VS995 using Tapatalk

    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...

    I have a 2012 Eclipse Spyder 2.4L with the dual exhaust. I've had the car for abut 6 years, currently at 84k miles. Engine blown due to oil filter being blown out completely twice on the freeway. The fist time I notice in time and had the oil change. It happened again about 2 weeks later...

    Just recently had oil change they said i had lost some oil which caused my oil light to be on. They said it may be something wrong with the low end of motor or oil pump.

    I am new here (officially) but I have been a lurker. I own a red 2006 Mits Eclipse GT, bought it new, and take good care of it. Before, I owned a 2000 red Mits Eclipse GT. See a pattern? I have an oil leak. One year ago, I saw oil drops and had two valve cover gaskets replaced. Two months ago...

    Hi Guys, So I was driving through basically a hurricane yesterday is my 07 GS with a DC Sports CAI. It's relatively well shielded I thought (Filter behind the fog light) and I do have that AEM "Hydroguard" prefilter sock on it. That being said, I was on the highway (traffic moving about 60...

    Got a real head scratcher here. I did an oil change on the '08 eclipse. Let it drain for several hours. Put the k&n hp1010 oil filter on, and used mobil 1 5w-20 synthetic. Started the car once to cycle oil through the engine for a minute before doing a final check on oil level. Also pre-filled...
