2004 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.

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.
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.

Vehicles with higher than normal fuel pressure will receive fuel pump modifications to correct this concern.
