1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX ProblemsEngine Knocking Noise From Carbon Buildup
Carbon buildup on the top of the pistons is common. As the buildup increases with over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to hammering, to knocking noises. Performing a fuel injector cleaning procedure can often help the condition by removing some of the piston top deposits.
A squeal or squeak type noise may be heard from the rear brakes on application. Our technicians tell us there is an updated rear brake pad shim kit which can help reduce this type of noise.
The manual transmission may become difficult to shift, this is commonly caused by binding between the synchronizer and the gear surface. Adding a special friction modifier to the manual transmission fluid will often correct this condition. If the problem persists revised synchronizer kits may be available.
