      I think that explains where they are at now as a maker of new cars. I was just looking at the sales brochure for my car and looking at the model lineup on the back. They were riding high with a great lineup of successful cars in all the major...

      Not when it comes to knowledge and good advice. I see you all over the forum. 👍 I guess I'm just a pack rat by nature! :D It did pay for for me this past fall when my thermostat went and having one on hand got me right back on the road instead of...

      I haven't counted, but it's getting up there in hundred for me too. May have to start using a spreadsheet like you are doing. Right now the boxes are marked with all the parts in them, but that's about it.

      I've been doing the same thing with parts. Stocking up while I can. Don't know what the future holds. Turning into my own parts warehouse. lol

      Funny thing is Mitsubishi is a current company but it just doesn't seem to realize there is money to be made on reissuing parts to enthusiasts like Toyota and Mazda with Supras and Miatas. MG/Austin, they are all defunct. They died when the whole...

      Hi, all:We share a lot of what we do on our Facebook/Instagram pages but there's no better place to document all of it than here! We'll just throw random photos on here that we think are neat :)Cheers, Matt and Samantha

      I think it depends on the car. To your MG reference, I have 1969 Austin Healey Sprite (same as MG Midget) for example and the story with old British cars is totally different. Moss Motors supplies just about every part imaginable. And that is for...

      Appreciate your support of these cars and the community. I'm new to the car and community, but both are great and I'm really enjoying it and appreciate your hard work with the supply chain helps keep us all on the road which is always a challenge...

      SilverSpyder98 replied to the thread 420A List of issues.
      What you are running into I found is pretty typical for a car of this age. If you love the car it is worth it. The average car owner would see it as overwhelming and toss it in the junk yard or trade it in but it is mostly minor stuff that if you...

      I appreciate the kind words, Marty!This is my job. While I want to support these cars, it's a two way street. If I can keep us in parts (I say "us" as I need a lot of these parts as well for my own vehicles) it helps you guys *and* me. I...

      Remove the metal bracket, it slides out from the sides. Then there's four clips, two on top and two on the bottom. There's a typical "penny" method where you pry up and insert pennies between the plugs section and the outer cover to hold the...

      Yeah, they all are expensive. Looking at Rock Auto's prices, they've gone up a lot since I bought one last (like everything else lately!). But waltah has some good advice and info and I think if you get everything all adjusted as suggested, it...

      What year is your Eclipse? For a 96-97 Rock Auto has the following units: STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS AC250 WVE 2H1201Rock Auto gives a Mitsubishi cross reference part number of MD614698 for these units. I'd check to see what part number you have...

      Short answer: Chances this works with damage as shown are zero.These are the internal parts that you can take right out. Getting the cover off will almost surely require the torque of a tool like the one shown.Make sure the gasket is in...

      Right, I learn something new everyday. I looked this up and it seems 98 was the year they changed this. As I've been looking for parts for my car it seems 98 was a threshold year for a lot of small changes partly due to environmental regulatory...

      This is the standard (early, I think) IAC valve on the 4g64. This picture is looking over the passenger fender at the IAC assembly; the air intake hose (removed) and TV/plenum are right above the picture.These IACVs have a DC motor; you can...

      Sorry, missed your question about the coolant temp sensors. You are right. The larger one is for the ECU and the smaller one just feeds the gauge cluster. Issues with the wiring for the ECU one should throw a code. Again, since you have a code...

      It doesn't look like the one on my 2.4. I replaced it once and there is no way those big gears are inside that. Here's pics of what you should be seeing bolted under the throttle body. This is the IAC valve that the code you are getting is...

    • SilverSpyder98
      If you can provide pics with more detail of the general area I can say for sure. Sounds like the IAC unit since you are saying it is bolted to the bottom of the throttle body. Since it is sealed, I'd say unless the gears are broken, there's...
