    I replaced one under my engine but still have a leak and it looks like on the top of my engine. under my intake manifold.

    Thank You for the help.


    1. I need help with this prob to where are all my freeze plugs located I put water in n it comes shooting bk out on right side of the middle by intake close to thermastat it’s on a 2000 mits ecl.by please help have asked everyine I know n they don’t know?!!

    1. Its in your fuse box under the hood should have 3 in the bottom and the one to right are relay for fuel pump , thats where it is on my 2000gt

  4. I have a 2003 Mitsibishi Eclipse GS. Does anyone know where to add transmission fluid to a Manual Transmission. My Eclipse is making a knocking sound when in ideal. When the clutch is depressed the knocking stops, when the clutch is released the knocking resumes. Is it low on fluid.

    1. John, did you find where to add the tranny fluid? If you look under the hood on the driver’s side, you will see the transmission. There is a bolt there, take a 17mm socket and take that bolt out. If fluid comes out then you have plenty, if not you will need to add fluid until it starts coming out.
      ***Note: The manual transmission take gear oil (SAE 75W-90, API Services GL-4). Do not use automatic transmission fluid..

      Just because it’s knocking when you release the clutch does not mean that it’s the transmission. Inspect your half shafts/cv joints, they may be bad and that’s the only thing I know that would knock.
      **I am not a mechanic, just a DIY guy**

    2. I tell you what it is its your throw out bearing inside your clutch adding gear oil would not help anything

      1. Need help with my 2001 Mitsubishi Spyder. Was driving down the road and was losing speed. I went to give it gas but instead of speeding up and went completely down and died. Pulled over in the shoulder and tried starting it. It would crank over but wouldnt start just like if you are running out of gas but i had a full tank. 2 days before this accident happened my stupid brother took off in my car without my knowledge. It started raining and he didnt know how to put the top up so everything in my car got extremely wet. I let it sit in my garage until the day i had this issue when i was on my way to work. Can anyone help me please before I start spending money

        1. If your crank shaft sensor is bad. The car engine will turn over fine but never start. I had the same problem last year. It should give a OBD code. I have a 2001 GT V6 I bought new 19 years ago.

    3. My 2000 gs did the same thing and after replacing a bunch of parts it wound up being the throw out bearing that was bad. Mine made almost a knocking or ticking noise with a little bit of whoosh and stopped making noise after throw out bearing replacement

    4. There’s two different ways to add transmission fluid to a standard. You can remove the shift stick and put in through there or you can find the oil insert on the transmission. It’s usually on the side somewhere not on top. But it almost sounds as if the through out bearing is getting bad..

      1. The only way to add fluid the the shift stick it would have to be a rear wheel drive in your case it’s front so you would have to put it in through the insert on the transmission. To trace the through out bearing you have to pull the transmission. Some say it’s just easier to pull the motor out but every experience is different on everyone. I would say just drop the transmission. Less work.

  5. my 02 rs a/t its not getting power to the pmc and that prevent my car from start…. any idea what could be wrong????
    i jumped from a constant 12v to the power supply on the pmc and i was able to start it…..
    plus my high beams and the speed selector from the wipers arent working as they supposed to…
    any help??????????

    1. It’s in the right hand of your steering column.. y’all can find most of what your looking for on google… It’s simple cosmetic stuff. Nothing a mechanic should have to deal with….

  6. Was running great till….it had an intake antifreeze leak and replaced it sputtered longer and longer each stop and sit then run erands finaly parked and replaced gasket. Then wouldnt start so replaced distri crank pos sensor wires. Plugs fuses. Confused now no spark except when. Distrib is hooked up outside and shaft grounded and hand spin the rotor and mild spark so mount it still nothing so finding the timing marks off re adjust then timing marks dead on and crank shaft position sensor belt distributor are new

  11. DIY guy.. I just bought an 01 eclipse with 2.4L it keeps blowing the fuse #13 under hood. Researched it and its the ECU. Blows when key is turned to run position. Anyhow sometimes it won’t blow car will crank and run after it heats up it blows fuse continuously. I was informed it could be a BCM or Body Control module. I can’t find any diagrams on this component. I called a dealership spoke took a Tech and was told its called a BIU. If it were the ECU the car wouldn’t run at all. Any advice? Please email at Poppaflop@gmail.com so I can effectively communicate and solve this problem. Please and thank you!

  12. 2001 Eclipse Spyder 3.0, having issues with the convertible top. Looking for the hydraulic pump to refill. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Does anyone know where the turn signal flasher is located in a 2001 spyder? I took out the radio and it wasn’t behind there. Looking at several manuals, none of them have it in there. Is it possible in the ETACS? Thanks for the help.

  16. I have a 02 eclipse spider, I’ll be driving and all of a sudden the motor turns off, sometimes I feather the gas peddle and it will come on and sometimes it won’t run. I’ve had to sit between 20 minutes to 1 hour and then the car will start. The only code is the oxygen cencer on the catalytic converter off of the intake manifold , I changed the intake and the cencer, and still doing the same thing. When the car runs it runs great. Please help

  17. I’m just wondering if the overhauling section of this guide is actually to get more performance off my block?

  18. I am working on my 02 GS, and needs to locate the right size torx for the front sway bar, does anyone know what size it is? I am trying to get up a proper set of tools and would only like to have what I need, and nothing extra. THANKS!!

  19. Thanks for some other informative website. The place else may just I get
    that type of info written in such an ideal approach?
    I’ve a project that I am just now working on, and I
    have been at the look out for such information.

  20. The manuals were great. Without them I would not have been able to troubleshoot my electrical problem.

  21. Can someone tell me where the vehicle speed sensor is located on a 2002 eclipse GT? I’m getting a check engine code P0500

  22. Hello. My eclipse 04 always blow a fuse . It’s the #15 fuse on 20A . Looking at some pics it’s a trans axle fuse. (If I am reading it right) the car starts sometimes with blowing but when I started to shift gears or sometimes drive a mile , the fuse blows. How to I find the shirt? Is this a harness shirt? Shall I bring down the transmission to get to the shore?

  23. Supposedly my crank is down on my 2000 Eclipse 3.0v6. I would like to know a dealer in the US that can tell me if that is the problem and how much it will cost to replace it , if that is the problem. Please reply.
