Hey guys I am new here and I current owner of a 2002 Lexus IS300. I am going to look at a 1998 Eclipse GSX soon and I was just curious as to what problems usually occur on these cars. What should I look for when I go check it out? Anything specific?
By the way, my IS300 is for sale if anyone is interested just let me know and I will give you full details and pictures.
like the previous poster said it's kinda luck when you buy a dsm I have found so many elictrical issues with my car its rediclious. But you should do a basic test just like any car
Compression test the cylinders
pressure test the coolant system
check the spark plugs for uneven combustion
if its a 5 speed press the clutch in and have a buddy look at the crank pully there should be no play...
