2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Problems

Rattle Noise From Clutch

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.

 

The Sunroof May Become Stuck Closed or Have Difficulty Moving

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.

Manual Transmission Shifting Difficulty

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.

2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Recalls

Passenger Sun Visor May Detach In Collision

The passenger side sun visor may detach if an accident occurs with it in the down position, and the passenger front air bag is deployed, striking it. Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the visor free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Fuel Leak From Fuel Pump Return Hose Fitting

The fuel return line fitting on the fuel pump may have been improperly molded. Breakage could result in a fuel leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump to correct this concern. This recall began on July 26, 2004. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-04-007.

A Fuel Leak May Develop from the Fuel Return Hose

The fuel return line fitting at the fuel pump may be restricted, causing excessive fuel pressure in the fuel injection system. This may result in a fuel leak from the return hose. A fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel pump pressure. Vehicles with higher than normal fuel pressure will receive fuel pump modifications to correct this concern.
