    Hello! Here are a few problems with my car: Clunking creaking and scraping when braking.. Adjusted brake hardware twice, it was quiet and came back .. going to midas tomorrow. I braked hard after getting brakes done and something broke under there.. Maybe its not the hardware.. ?? like a strut...

    I just bought my 4G and the previous owner had it lowered. It looks super clean and I don't scratch it on speed bumps, but I often scratch exiting plazas on downhill dips and also on unprecedented small potholes or random dips on regular roads etc. Here and there I'll hit it super hard going...

    I want to disable the ABS temporarily until I can service the car. Which Fuse can I remove that wont affect other loads. Is there a cable to disconnect that would remove power and not cause some computer to go nuts? Problem with car is: turn ignition on no dummy lights lit. Drive a little...

    Hi, recently I have been hearing a scraping sound that almost resembles a spray bottle from the back of my engine bay of my 07 Eclipse gt. I made a video of it but idk how to get it on here. It can only really be heard when the hood is up but I've never noticed it before the past few days. The...

    Apologies with the lighting, but this started out of the blue.. Passenger side makes this noise when the fan is turned on. Sounds like the fan blade is scraping or hitting something. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks! Fan noise:runaway: fannoise - YouTube PS And as long as I'm posting...

    Just as the title says I'm looking for the lower bumper bar cover that goes between the OEM fangs, any color works, carbon fiber too. Just not looking to spend 200+ for a new one that I'm most likely going to end up scraping on the ground. Let me know what you got! Thanks!

    When accelerating the vehicle sounds fine. When braking it also sounds fine. When slowing down (but not pressing the brake) there is a rubbing/scraping sound. Is this my brakes or a wheel bearing or wtf?

So i got new rotors from brakeperformance.com and ceramic pads from ACI. In some messed up cicumstances...

    06 Eclipse GT 106k miles This is a weird one and I have no idea what it could be. This is what happens: After the car has been sitting for 6+ hours, I'll get in, start it up... everything is fine. Once I put it in drive and actually start driving & giving it gas, there is a weird almost scraping...

    Like the title says. It’s not a squealing sound or a scraping sound, best way i can think of to describe it is a wailing sound, like dragging a school desk across a tiled floor and it makes that wailing/vibrating sound. Happens most often when going in reverse, rarely when in drive. It happens...

    Help! Grinding/scraping metallic sound when turning! I've recently noticed that when I turn hard to the right under low acceleration I'm hearing a metallic metal-on-metal scraping noise. There is absolutely no noise whatsoever when going over bumps or with normal driving. I don't feel any...

    Scraping-like engine noise coming from the rear bank (near the firewall). It comes on and off during idling. 2008 GT Auto with 86,000 miles. Original owner. Always used 5W20 Mobil 1 Synthetic. Engine Noise | Flickr - Photo Sharing! My money is on a faulty hydraulic lifter. What's your guess?
  15. Problem Reports
    Hey guys. Just bought my snazzy '08 Eclipse GT last Friday and there seems to be some sort or grinding or scraping going on coming from the front end. The problem only shows up when I'm going slowly (usually under 15mph) and mostly when I'm turning right, but I've also been hearing it when...

    So im at 34000 miles, and getting a tranny oil change here on friday, but whenever i accelerate, in my auto, i hear like a grinding/scraping/bearing gone bad noise from 2k to 3k rpms. What do you think that is? Havent had the funds to get it changed sooner, but will the fluid change help?

    So I've been looking to see if anyone has attempted to remove the cover of the headlights with a heat gun without taking off the bumper... ...has anyone attempted this? I let someone borrow my stands, and it's not exactly easy scraping underneath the front of the bumper. I've grown impatient...

    This is not for the eclipse, but it seems like a basic problem not specifc to the car. just put these new rear rotors and pads on and when i drive there is a loud scraping noise and when i look at the rotors there are pretty harsh looking scraping marks on the rotor, just the front side, the...
  20. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    I recently noticed that when I am accelerating that around 2000rpm i start to hear this small scraping or grinding noise. This continues till about 2400 rpms and then stops. Then once I shift to second it does it again at the same rpm levels. It does this from 1st-4th gear and may continue in...
