  3. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I have a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT with the 3.8L and have recently experienced power steering issues. I have no power steering until about 2000 RPMs and then after that point it works as it should. I've tried bleeding the system by jacking the front up and steering lock to lock as well as using...

    I've been in the process of updating hoses and flushing the power steering fluid on my car. I can say with certainty, if you haven't done it, get it done. The power steering fluid eats at the inside of the hoses and it discolors the fluid, Pieces of rubber can end up in you steering rack. I have...

    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...

    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...

    Hello everybody, I'm new to these forums. Figured this would be a good place to talk to other people about 4G Eclipses. I'm Cameron, and I'm from Southern Indiana. :imnew: I won a used 2007 Eclipse GT (5-spd auto w/Premium Sport Package) in a raffle during the Great American Eclipse. I just...

    So first let me say that I'm ecstatic to be part of Club 4G. When I first laid my eyes on a 4G, I instantly knew that I had to have one. 2 wifes and 3 kids later, I finally was in a position to get one. My babe (wifey) was 1000% supportive of me getting a 09 GT. Selling her the idea that our 2...
  12. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Hi everyone, I just got a small noise when parking today, it was near full lock. So since my power steering fluid hasn't been flushed I decided to do it. Problem is the local dealership is telling me they don't have Diaqueen PSF, they use ATF instead "on all Mitsubishis". I assume it must be...
  13. 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 Upon entering my engine I came to learn that all my belts, pump, and pulleys have been replaced by the previous owner and were in perfect shape...
  14. Driveline
    So, I have a few problems with my driveline - I think. 2007 GS - 5MTX 1. My gears grind if I shift too quickly. There doesn't seem to be specific gears that do it, but I've noticed it on gears 2,3 and 5. 2. When I let off and reapply gas, there's a jerk each time. When I let off, there is a...

  17. Problem Reports
    So, after being gone all summer in Virginia (i.e. being unable to work on my car), I finally got back under my car to hunt down the source of a power steering leak I developed out there. Fortunately, the leak has stopped and I can't locate where it ever came from. Unfortunately, I discovered my...

    I've done some searching, and I haven't been able to find a compiled list of the best fluids for our cars. If one already exists, let me know, and this thread can be deleted. Basically, what I think would be helpful to everyone is for you to write about your favorite brand of transmission fluid...
  19. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    Hi friends! From the title of the thread is clear about what will be discussed. At the moment there is a spare 4G69 engine. With this engine I'm conducting different experiments. It will also be a great and interesting topic. Probably a couple of months. When I get results. For this project, I...
  20. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Just wondering if anyone has had these issues: I have had the serpentine belt changed THREE times since April 2015 due to it being noisy at idle & while driving. Car had 60361 miles when I bought it in January 2015. The first time it was changed at 65230 miles in April 2015, the mechanic put...
