  1. Problem Reports
    When I turn on my AC it makes a rattle sound, it sounds almost like a pebble in there. But I do not know where to look for this problem. The sound aggravates me, and I want to fix it. The AC works perfectly fine though. Does anyone know the cause of this almost ticking/rattling noise.
  2. 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...

    I have a '06 GS, and I when I had the clutch replaced, we discovered that the source of my weird noise was not clutch related. What happens is when the clutch is engaged, there is a rattle/squeak from the transmission. When I accelerate, it gets VERY loud, and it's even gotten to the point...

    Lost one of the rattle clips on the rear brakes on the wife's 4g. Autozone has the generic "Help" rattle clips for 3 or 4 bucks. Will these work? If not, where can I get some rattle clips for the rear brakes that will work? Thanks.
