    Hey all, I have a 2003 eclipse 3.0L Suddenly the car started leaking coolant and now it's leaking oil. I stopped driving it cuz I didn't have time to deal with the problem. That was about a month ago. Noticed a large pool of what appears to be oil and coolant mix on the ground all around the...

    Hey guys, I have on '03 GTS (185,000). I bought this car when I was 19, I'm now almost 22. I love this car and it was the first car that was "mine". I've taken the best care of it I can with regular maintenance, timing belt change, distributor replacement, IAC and MAF replacement, water pump...

    I was looking around the boards (and other places) trying to figure out why my heater wasn't working. The most likely culprit seemed to be that I needed a radiator flush - or at least that seemed like the easiest thing to do. So I did that. I emptied the system and ran about 2 gallons of...

    Okay, I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT with 66k miles, and since I got the car, which was a thousand miles ago, I put new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, timing belt and components (water pump), thermostat (oem) and coolant temp sender and sensor, radiator cap and fan relay. It had new coolant...

    Hi, I have 160k miles on my 2000 GT. I've had it since Jan 04, 2002 when I turned 17. I joined Club3G soon after that and have been lurking, learning ever since. I've even been to a couple of meets in the Chicago area way back when. It's always been my daily driver car. Ever since there's been...

    My heater core is leaking. Pep Boys wants $1400 to replace it or $250 to bypass it. Bypassing seems the way to go because I live in Florida and don't use the heater anyway. But I'd like to try doing it myself to save even more money. Here are my questions: how hard is this procedure and how...

    So it's been in the single digits temperaturewise and i have noticed a very annoying problem. I get cold air blowing out of my vents even with the heat turned up all the way. After the car warms up I can get heat when I hold it steady at about 1500-2000 rpm. I checked my coolant level and...
