  1. Problem Reports
    Hi Need some advice. 2007 2.4l 275K miles I've owned the car since 2010, 33K miles. I've had great luck with this car, no major issues ever, except for the brakes randomly going out on me about 2 years ago-which was fixed with a recall. Not sure if any of this is related. I screwed up...

    I'll just explain everything and you can straighten me out... 2007 Eclipse 4 cyl auto trans, 215K miles. I'm driving and the car suddenly goes into 3rd gear. D on the dashboard is blinking. I putt putt to my work and turn it off. Later in the day I come out and everything is now fine. Go...

    Hi all, I had a steel brake line corrode through on my 07 GS. I've paid a premium to a shop to have them all replaced but they've done kind of a sloppy job with the routing in the engine bay and I'm planning on taking it back to be rectified. Stupid me didn't take "before" pictures of the...

    Hey everyone, I've been working with a custom engine mount fab shop out of PA called Boosted Fabrication. If you follow my IG @rennasgarage, you will have seen the custom engine mounts he made for my GS. It definitely makes the driving experience much more precise. It feels like I have less...

    I'm an old school shade tree mechanic who hasn't turned a wrench in a long time. I'm starting to mod the '08 GT I've had for 3 years already and I could use some advice from other gearheads about what mods I should address first. I'm looking to build for performance before hanging any...

    Whats the best way and cheapest way to replace engine or find a used one? I bent a rod in mine so its hard to decide. Shop wants to charge 7k for a whole new rebuilt engine that’s including labor and the new engine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    All I have left are these taillights, everything else has been given new homes. They are used, but are not scrached or chipped. They may need resealed, as they had started sweating inside the lens on muggy days, but I am not sure. $50 takes them.

    I've got something going on with my Eclipse 4G, and I can't figure out what it is. I'm trying to avoid taking it to a shop and blowing 500% more money than what the repair is worth on mechanics time and repairing parts that aren't the problem. So I thought I'd ask here first. Here's the deal...

    I haven't been on much lately as I've been working hard on my new place. 3400sq ft of shop on an acre of land. It's a 60*41 and two oversized bays. I'm pretty excited and just got all my cars home. I've attached some shots of the big shop area I took earlier. I'm very happy, and it should...

    Hey guys, I need some advice on what could be causing this. 2006 GT: I put on new shocks and struts last year (OEM, and yeah, that cost a lot more than aftermarket but I liked the original ride). I put new brake rotors and pads, and replaced failing front right caliper. I replaced the 17"...

    Say "Hey"! I'm an older car guy and currently have a 2006 Eclipse Gt with only 30K miles on it. It runs strong for what it is but wish to ad a Nitrous system before too long (Cheap power only when needed or wanted). Although the science remains a constant, the last NOS postings I've searched...

    Hey fellas, just got my car back after having some work done do it. (Injen CAI, RRE Headers, Energy motor mounts, ebiach pro kit lowering springs and magnaflow catback exhaust) The shop told me they had to delete the pipe connecting the RRE manifold to the EGR as it would not line up. My EGR...

    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...

    Hey, I'm getting a clutch (FX100) and steel flywheel put in on a stock Eclipse GT (ish). Figured it might be a good time to get a differential installed since I'm having a shop work on it...

    In the exploratory phase of auto to manual swap and have a few questions. The shop that's been doing my suspension has done this swap before (4G MT swapped to Galant) and is onboard to help with the install. I've following salvage titles on erepairables.com and someday will find a donor car...

The manual says, open the bleeding screw, hold the clutch pedal down, close the bleeding screw, release the clutch pedal and then...

    Hey guys, I'm Mason and I'm from the Utica-Rome area in NY, I've been using this forum a lot to answer basic questions I've had about my '07 Eclipse Spyder GS 5 speed and it's been a lot of help! I figured I'd finally make an account so I could participate more in the conversations. I've had...
