  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...
  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...

    Tried to replace starter this weekend on my 2010 GS 85k miles. When attempting to remove the O2 sensors from the exhaust manifold to get the heat shield off, only one sensor would come out. On the stuck one, i ended up using almost an entire can of PB blaster, a torch, some big leverage bars...

    Hey guys, I'm replacing my front downstream O2 sensor today, but the clearance I get on the front for the O2 sensor socket is much different from the rear O2 due to the heatshield? Not sure if the heatshield extends all the way to the bottom. I heard people actually using ratchet wrenches to...

    Cold Air Intake for 4th Gen Eclipse GS 2.4L Only had it on for 4 month so I'd say roughly 2-2.5k miles on the filter. Also comes with an Injen Hydro-Shield. $80 I'm military with orders so I need to sell this ASAP or I'll probably just throw it away *will not fit the 4th Gen Eclipse GT*
  9. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So, I had taken my front lower splash shields off after doing some maintenance one day because they were always getting beaten up by the road and the plastic rivets are a pain anyways. The other day, while driving home from campus, there was a huge water main break that turned the street I had...

    Can anyone speak on behalf of this style of hood? How well does it vent or if it vents at all. I'm debating whether or not to cut up my own hood to vent like this one but also add 2 more vents (2013 OEM Ford mustang hood vents) for extra air flow while also raising the rear part closest to the...
  11. Problem Reports
    Hey, my car started making a terrible metal on metal grinding noise today, and my uncle looked at it and said a couple of bolts from the exhaust heat shield had rusted through and it was dangling on the exhaust. He recommended just taking it off and leaving it, said there are millions of cars on...

    I have read this awesome website thoroughly, from one end to the other, and although there is a huge wealth of useful information on here, there are also many contradictions, so I am hoping that by starting this thread I can be in a position to know what maintenance (if any) must be done at this...

    Does anyone know the exact hydroshield to use with DC Sports CAI for a GS? I've done some poking around for it but all the answers aren't really conclusive, any help would be greatly appreciated.
