  1. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    I just patched the two vapor return lines that seem to rust out under that heavy steel cover. ( got the p0442 and then the p0445 ) . I see you can order the entire filler tube component, is it hard to replace if I put the car up on ramps ? Can you get to the upper filler neck hose connections...

  3. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    For those who have yet to suffer through this, a few tips I learned through my experience! – Earlier this year, we bought the car used, knowing it was from up north and was rusty underneath. The only real problem we’ve had so far was the fuel tank started leaking from the two vent lines on top...

    What's up guys? As you can tell from my pics, I have an aftermarket Blackout-3 front bumper from AIT Racing (close up pic of bumper is attached). Unfortunately, I can't figure out a way to get my stock foglights mounted in it (trust me... I've tried everything lol). My foglight wiring/internals...

  6. Forced Induction & Nitrous
    Hi guys, I thought someone may be interested in this build I am currently completing. It is a Lancer (Australia) with the 4g69 engine. After considerable research I could not find anyone who built a top-mount turbo setup, I may be wrong...but having built hundreds of turbo setups in my...
  7. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    As I slowly work my way through my long list of mods (currently getting an AIT body kit installed, next up is RRE header) I want to make sure I'm future-proofing my Eclipse. It's at 100k miles and I'm putting a shitload of time/money into it, so I'll need to get to at least 160k-180k miles on it...

    Where does everyone get their parts from? I don't trust google to find me a good timing belt kit. TIA
  9. Problem Reports
    Does anyone know about these guys? I'm looking for rear rotors and pads for my gt (which doesn't have a GT badge and I'm not happy about that), but these prices seem a little insane. Can anyone back this place, or that these prices aren't crazy? I'm used to $120+ for rotors, should I trust this...
  10. Problem Reports
    I pulled up on my handbrake and a cable seemingly snapped, no tension. I've just been leaving it in gear when I park now. I took it to a local shop and they said the right cable snapped, and both should be replaced due to rust. They aren't sure how much of their time it will take to do that...

    Hi everyone, my name is Seirrah. I bought my first stick shift car, a 06 gs back in February of this year. I never knew how to drive stick until I bought it, and I was determined to learn. (I figured it out in about 24 hrs). I have done a few things such as replacing the radio, aftermarket...

  13. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So I have had my eclipse for 3 years now. Not had any issues except the guy before me decided to put HiD's in the car *have gotten them replaced back to stock headlights since* and apparently this has done considerable damage to my alternator. Now I know what you're thinking. Did you check the...
  14. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    Hey Guys... I plan on changing my Brakes, Rotors and Struts in the very near future. I am going to do the work myself.. and the first step is to purchase the stuff I need. Would you guys be able to help direct me to some Brakes, Rotors and Struts? I am looking for performance Rotors and...

    Hello, fellow 4G fans! Please allow me a moment to introduce myself in the context of an avid performance automobile enthusiast. My first car was a 1972 Chevelle 350 coupe with which I had a serious relationship. Unfortunately, college expenses and life events kept me from completing my vision...
  16. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Ive decided that my current rotors are damaged some how so I need to get some new ones. I know slotted/Drilled can be a meme but there is actual research to show a slight increase in brake performance so I am going to get Slotted at least but not drilled only. Ive found what I think is a good...

    After two long years of driving a rust bucket, I was finally able to buy something nice. After searching for a while, I found myself a 4g with 80k miles. I'm very impressed, and plan on keeping her through college. I just put in some euro headlights with Railhart eyelids. And just ordered some...
  18. Problem Reports
    I've got a 2006 GT with 125K/mi that has developed an inconsistent rattle in the back at lower speeds or on city streets "with character" aka potholes and patches every 6 inches. Sometimes it's nonstop, other times it's infrequent, and thankfully it always goes away at highway speeds. The...
  19. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    So this may have been asked a thousand times and I know people are gonna tell me to search. Trust me I know and have. I've been around on the 3G forums for 3 years. But I haven't found a legitimate answer for a 09 GT. When does the timing belt need to be replaced? I'm hearing that if it's 08+...
  20. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Just got the 06 GT Used at about 87k miles and have a couple of questions - 1) The timing belt was supposed to be changed at 60k miles if I am right, should I assume that the belt has not been changed and go ahead and get it changed? I am a student and won't be immediately able to get money...
