2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems

The sunroof may become stuck in the closed position or require "help" moving forward and backward. The common repair is to replace the guides but often the problem will resurface again.

The brake pedal may pulsate when the brakes are applied. This is most commonly caused by the front brake rotors warping. Resurfacing the affected rotors may correct the problem for the short term but replacement would generally considered a longer term solution.

A rattle noise may be noted from the clutch area while the car is at idle. If the noise changes or goes away when the clutch is depressed the fault is commonly with the clutch disc springs. It has be reported that a revised clutch disc is available from Mitsubishi to correct this concern.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Questions

We just bought a 2001 Spyder Eclipse. We do not know when or if the timing belts has ever been replaced. How can we check its condition. What is the ballpark figure if it needs replacing? Thanks!

Looking to buy one, but the heat in it is bad, and I need to know how much it would be to fix ir

Will start with a jump start and runs until it runs out of power , has new battery and alternator on it . Just will not stay charged . Dash board loses power then car cuts off and will not start until it jumped started .
