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 brake pedal pulsation may be noted on brake apply. This is commonly caused by warping of the front brake rotors. Our technicians remind us that re-machining (turning) the rotors can correct this issue but the repair may last only a short time as the thinner rotors would be even more prone to warping. Replacement of faulty rotors with high quality parts is often the best option in these situations.
The front, lower ball joint may fail unexpectedly resulting in loss of vehicle control. Failed ball joints will require replacement. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of related suspension components if this situation occurs. This should be done in order to determine if there is any other damage as a result of the ball joint failure.
