to do with me not being able to go into 1st or 2nd gear (manual transmission)

it will not blow warm air

radiator and overheating stopped. low on oil so filled oil. car ran fine for 1/2 hour at idle. drove car and got about 2 miles and the oil light came on again. car started running really rough. pulled over and had the car towed home. looked underneath and see oil around the oil filter. would a leak in the oil filter cause the oil pressure light to come on? any other ideas?

97 eclipse gs shifting is clunky and Can only go into gear when I shift slow

The window is pulled away from the top, how can I repair this? Is there a specific type of glue, to use. The strip it was attached to, only an inch on top & bottom of window, which is just a flimsy piece of vinyl, approximately 2 inches wide. Any suggestions, at least to get it through till spring.

never had any problems with the transmission . just recently I started the car and does and not want to shift into gear ... Any gears . checked the fuses all good and no codes are popping up.

I would like to know about reporting a potential insurance fraud issue, coupled with employment underpayment. I am dealing with a mechanic who receives estimates from the insurance company for a repair. The estimate quotes a particular number of hours and new parts. The mechanic then directs his employees to complete the job in fewer hours, with used parts. Mechanic then bills the insurance company for the original estimate (with extra hours and new parts that were never used). He is defrauding the insurance company and short selling his employees. Who can I report this to? Better Business Bureau? Bureau of Automotive Repair?

alternators listed for this car are a 90 amp or 95 can i tell which one i need and how can i tell which one is on the car now...

it bcomes on and stays on for 15 mins or more some times less and then would flicker and go off by itself. comes on whether I am on the hwy or in city driving......had car code codes were evident.

Everytime I drive a short distance, I am having to replace coolant, about 2 cups. There are no signs of leaks in the drive cement or anywhere. There is no smell and nothing on the carpet. We have check with a flashlight and we see no coolant splattered anywhere. I don't drive much and even after about 10 miles it went down after the car cooled off. A pressure test was done on it and it looked really good.

I'm a retired mech,mostly motorcycle,but ten years gen. automotive.I bought a 2001 eclipse a year ago,186k then 198k now.2.4 stick.It had a slight rattle I at first suspected to be a shroud or exhaust component. Since then,the noise has increased.Its not an engine noise,it only happens when moving ,and louder when coasting downhill in gear.Once out of second it goes away.I put the car on blocks,and ran it.It was quiet until I put it under load with the brakes.I could feel the rattle through the clutch fork,as well as the trans housing.It occurred with either wheel stopped.I'm thinking throwout bearing or clutch pak. please advise...thanks,mike...

i have to wait a few hours or a day then it will start again

at 90 thousand. I have 125 k on it now . The belt still looks good , but has bent valves.
