    I fixed the play in my shifter completely. Managed to make a plastic spacer (43mm or 1 11/16 od, 37mm or 1 15/32 id, Width as desired) underneath the lower ball seat, to raise it a mm or so. and then dremel out the upper retainer for the pivot ball a mm as well. A clean up and regrease with...

    Transmission fluid Manual 09 GS My local Mechanic put RedLine 75w-80 full synthetic gear oil when he replaced the clutch. a year later, I changed the CV axle shaft and lost a bit of trans fluid in the process so I decided to drain and refill myself. I went to O'Reilly's and they gave me a...

    This is my first Eclipse a 08 GT convertible purchased with 35k miles I have had it for about 3 years. I have been happy with the car so far, the most costly maintenance has been the timing belt. I did have to replace the convertible top because of a broken hydraulic cylinder but was able to...

    So my 2006 3.8 GT had developed a terrible upper valve train ticking. It got to the point where it was really embarrassing and noticeable even when inside the car windows up.I decided to tackle it and lucky for the car, when I decide to fix something I do not stop until the job is done. The...

    Thought it was about time to make one of these, so here goes. History: I bought this car on a whim. Heard it came to auction, read the specs and put in a bid. All said and done it set me back $6100 tax-in w/105k kilometers on the clock, which was a steal considering the amount of car I'd be...
  11. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    So I picked this car up today at a great price and in great condition. It's an 07 SE Automatic w/ the Rockford Fosgate sound system. First thing it has 150k on it, what maintanence should I do first and foremost? Previous owner was very trustworthy and honest, said "The dealer I bought it form...
  12. Problem Reports
    Hello everyone. I'm a newbie on this site, and I think it's great. I have a 2012 GS Sport Spyder with the 2.4 engine. It has 39K on the clock, and I am getting a burning oil smell, especially when the car is hot. It started about a month ago. I can't smell it while driving, only when...

    I recently had my transmission rebuilt and had my clutch replaced. I wanted to give everyone a cost and information to make it easier for everyone in the future. Rebuild - $950 Clutch - $285 Gear Oil - $60 Labor - $300 so just over $1,600. I used 75w80 Redline Synthetic gear oil. It is...
  14. Problem Reports
    I have been using Mobil 1 synthetic oil forever but one day I was "forced" to buy something else (long story). Anyway, what I bought was Castrol Magnatec synthetic oil. All I can say is that on my car, the classic Mitsubishi engine noise went away. It makes almost no noise at all now. Maybe it...
  15. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    Got a real head scratcher here. I did an oil change on the '08 eclipse. Let it drain for several hours. Put the k&n hp1010 oil filter on, and used mobil 1 5w-20 synthetic. Started the car once to cycle oil through the engine for a minute before doing a final check on oil level. Also pre-filled...
  16. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Just wanted an opinion on if the way I drive my GT can be considered harmful to the engine/components in any way. Since I've got plenty of low end, I typically short shift at ~2000rpm and rarely feel the need to exceed 3k. I never let my car warm up before I drive and most days my commute is...
  17. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    Seems oil changes are the theme of the week here. Well, I've got my own question to add. My oil is due very soon. I purchased a 5.3qt jug of Quaker State 'Ultimate Durability' full synthetic 5w-20 motor oil (it was on sale) and a Fram Ultra Synthetic filter (XG7317, also on sale). Now the...

    My '06 GT started this weird ticking noise right around the intake manifold area. I noticed the oil level was extremely low a couple days ago and I've always used Valvoline Synthetic or Mobil 1 Synthetic. It's at 146,000 miles right now. I used to drive it all the time but lately I use it about...
