    I am as I write this inquiry in process of replacing the timing belt on a 2006 6G75. At this point I have replaced the Water Pump, Idler Pulley, Tensioner Pulley, and the new timing belt is in place. I made a mistake and turned the Tensioner Pulley clockwise to torque it not counter clockwise...
  2. 4G Eclipse GT/SE Specific
    After pulling my harmonic balancer while attempting to change my timing belt, I found out that the pulley has been rubbing the lower timing cover. The cover had all screws tightened accordingly. Interestingly enough, I was about to pull the balancer without much effort - a wobble back and forth...

    A couple days ago I picked up an 07 GT convertible from a high school kid since I wanted a commuter / project car. I have a number of things to fix / optimize, but I'll work through most of that over time. Today I'm going to determine why the top will not retract even though the motors are...

    Hi Folks, I have been a 4G GS owner since 2006 and was on the forum way back then. The car has never been back to the shop as I do all my own maintenance. I need to get the brake recall done, but that's another story. I just had my timing belt break on the way to work the other day and of...

  13. 2006-2012 Eclipse (General 4G)
    I am thinking about purchasing the rre underdrive pulley. Just did my timing belt and everything so no problem there. Just having concerns about what I been reading all over the internet. As in it could cause the oil pump to go, crank, engine damage. I understand everything slows down due to the...

    Car fax doesn't t show that the timing belt was ever changed . My 07 gs spyder was a one owner. Is there a way person could find the owner and ask him. Some vin lookup. Carfax has all the times they went to the dealer to do checks or inspections. In Jan. They replaced front rotors , new brakes...

    My rear driver's side sway bar link broke. Is there any difference between the 3.8L and the smaller engine when it comes to this non-engine part? I don't want to get hosed by a store because I'm getting a part for the "performance model" of my car if it's the same darn thing. Regarding changing...

    My eclipse just started making a new noise that seems to be coming from the engine block behind the exhaust manifold. It's kind of a rhythmic marble rattling kind of sound. checked heat shields and pretty sure those are not the problem. could it be the timing belt or the balancer timing belt...
