  1. 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...

    So for a while I had been feeling something that I couldn't quite describe, It felt like it was coming from the front left of the car usually would start too feel it at around 30-35mph an it would stop anywhere between 40-55mph. I first thought it was something to do with wheels/ suspension so I...

    This Eclipse right here is a certified badass 4G if you hadn't already seen it on YouTube. I can't do most of the custom amazing mods he's done for performance, but I'm wondering if I might be able to emulate a backyard version of his custom one-off front bumper mod. You can see it here in...

    I have been working on a 2007 GS Spyder with a few just annoying problems. One is the passenger heated seat is stuck on. Drivers side works fine. We also have the passenger seat airbag light on. Any suggestions? I assume it's not a fuse with it being stuck on. Thanks for any tips Bob

    Toilet paper may be in short supply, but there are now plenty of children wandering around aimlessly after their schools shut down and booted them out the door. Now is a great opportunity to get kids interested in cars. A little tinkering on cars can help teach them how to use their minds and...

    TL;DR - has anyone 'big-braked' the rear brakes on their cars by using the brake hardware from the front? Would this be a cheap way to upgrade your rear brakes if you used your old front hardware on the rears while replacing the fronts with a big brake kit? Context follows. So I've been...

    Roughly two weeks ago I lowered my '06 GT on Megan Racing Lowering Springs, mostly in the interest of just getting rid of factory wheel gap, and to lower the car but not far enough to completely slam it. I probably won't be racing the car but I do care for my car to have good performance on top...

    Hey guys, I've recently been having a problem with getting my 2011 Eclipse GS automatic to start.
