  1. Problem Reports
    Hi Need some advice. 2007 2.4l 275K miles I've owned the car since 2010, 33K miles. I've had great luck with this car, no major issues ever, except for the brakes randomly going out on me about 2 years ago-which was fixed with a recall. Not sure if any of this is related. I screwed up...
  2. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So I was driving today on the freeway and I was in second gear to overtake a big semi, but I didn’t realize I had to shift! (stupid me) so the the tach bounced off the limiter and I just hear my exhaust go “pop pop pop” and the car shut off. I coasted into a gas station, tried to start it up...

    Hi y'all I noticed some oil leaking under my car. It not too bad but i think its transmission oil because its right next to the CV Drive Shaft axle. I noticed that there is a little clean cutout hole in the same spot underneath so its a factory cut, right? I also put in Redline trans gear fluid...

    [ 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...
  8. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    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...
  9. Eclipse Performance
    I'm drenched in confidence today, although that might be baked on sweat because it was 90 degrees outside. I just performed my first modification on my darling Eclipse and fitted her with a cold air intake! This is probably pretty commonplace around these parts, but for me this is only my...

    Transmission fluid Manual 09 GS My local Mechanic put RedLine 75w-80 full synthetic gear oil when he replaced the clutch. a year later, I changed the CV axle shaft and lost a bit of trans fluid in the process so I decided to drain and refill myself. I went to O'Reilly's and they gave me a...

  13. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    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...

    Welp, after 220k miles with just routine oil changes and maintenance it decided it had enough. A few months after I gave it a fresh tune up too. Driving to work on Friday, It all of a sudden started mis-firing and knocking bad. I immediately pulled into a parking lot and as soon as my foot...
  18. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    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...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with some sadness that I post this. I purchased my 2006 GT as a present to myself after returning from a deployment to Iraq in 2012. When I purchased her she was bone stock with (as far as I can tell) every available option available in 2006. Sun and sound...

    Hi everyone, hope you all are doing well. So my 07 GT (6-speed) is experiencing two misfire codes. At first, it was P0304, so I checked the front bank of spark plugs and found the plugs and boots to be covered in oil. I changed the valve cover gasket and tube seals on those, and the code went...
