I just recently acquired a 2003 Eclipse GT. At idle there is a rattling coming from the trans. When I push in the clutch, the noise goes away. Any thoughts on the problem? This is my first Eclipse.

More than likely a bad throw out (clutch release) bearing. It does require removing the trans to replace.

It depends on the condition but if you know it hasn't been done in a long time/a lot of miles it's not a bad idea to save yourself the time and just get it done while you're there. An Exedy kit through RockAuto is cheap enough where I'd just do it. Might be a good idea to have a new flywheel on hand too.
