Hello my name is Jon Eardley and I just wanted to introduce myself, I'm new here. I guess I can start off by saying that the reason I bought these two cars is because for one I love these cars I just drove in the first eagle talon that ever came off the assembly line with my father my dad James Eardley held a position of quality control for diamond star Mitsubishi motor plant in Bloomington Illinois we were living at Stanford in the time the town of approximately 800 people out in the middle of corn fields there's nothing much to do there. Anyways I I wanted something to remind me of my father and both of these cars has his name stamped on them a third generation eclipse in a 4th generation eclipse third generation is a GTS spider the 4th gen is a GS 2.4 l 5-speed manual since I bought the first one I was having some problems with it I dumped about 3,000 into it fixes suspension the shocks the control arms brake lines brakes I mean I done a lot of work fixing it up not only did I have to repair everything I trade it my 2007 Honda Civic which was meant had 280,000 miles on it though I love that car as well anyways I have transmission related problems with both cars I am now currently on social security disability and I could use some help with these cars the third generation eclipse is a 3.0 l V6 automatic transcriptronic transmission and it's been stuck in neutral safety mode for about a year now I've been trying to do everything and anything with it I've taken it to three different shops that won't even look at it every time they're in the shop they just sat there for one place it was there for a month so I just got tired of taking the shops so I kept trying to do stuff on my own I just don't know what I'm doing though however I come to the conclusion that it's a combination of the front transmission oil pump and the torque converter that's what I no for certain on the 4th gen eclipse GS which is a 2.4 l 5 speed manual transmission come to find out the inner shaft bearings are toast and 4th gear synchronizers are gone I've looked everywhere for these two transmissions and I'm at a point now where I'm just about to give up I don't know what to do anymore I've searched and searched and searched and searched can anybody help me. I'm in Tampa Florida if anybody's interested I'm willing to give one of these cars to anyone that will completely fix the other one if that sounds good to anyone hit me up let me know I'm out of money I don't have anything to spend on these cars anymore and I need a car that works I'm willing to give up one car to completely fix the other car. If that sounds good to somebody hit me up and we'll go over the details.
