    Driving a 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse Without an Alternator Belt

    Good catch, I completely forgot the alternator drove the water pump.OP is the car NA? And how long did you drive it for after you lost the belt?

    Driving a 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse Without an Alternator Belt

    It’s not likely it overheated, the alternator does nothing to cool your car off. Your battery died or was dying. Replace the belt and jump start the car

    How many of us use our DSMs as actual daily cars? Or how many own just a DSM?

    I do NOT daily my DSM I have one 2g in the garage that’s practically a shell as I go through everything. I have a 2004 civic sedan that I drive every day. It will just get me wherever I’m looking for I’ve been stranded too many damn times and I’m fed up driving something modified. The turbo...

    2G Crank no start

    When did it stop starting, did you just go outside one day and it wouldn’t fire? Is it after you replaced something?

    The new Supra Z4?

    Genuinely my biggest gripe is that Toyota didn’t turn to Yamaha for the engine. Easily Yamaha could have cranked out another over-engineered gem capable of dumb power levels on stock internals. That and it’s not available in manual.It’s not super ugly, but every car to roll off the line...

    Other hobbies/passions besides DSMs?

    Unfortunately that’s the whole house (me and my 2 roommates) only the top AR and the p320 belong to meI wish my buddies were going full bolt one (it would make my life EASY!) but instead they all have to go all out. The buddy with the 1jz has a 2jz block in his garage just about ready for a...

    DSMer trying to build a Civic EG Hatch

    Civics are very very easy and cheap comparatively. I daily’d A 99 sedan with a turbo d16 for literally years and absolutely plan to build another. Most fun daily I’ve ever had. If you have a chipped p28 already I’d say switch to hondata, almost any Honda shop (or yourself) can tune s300 no...

    Reviving an old 2g (hopefully)

    Next to be removed was the interior, I’m going to re-do my wiring for the gauges. The first time around I cut corners and it was not up to my standard. Dash came out, I’m going to do the heater core/ evaporator/ expansion valve while they’re easy to get to. Harness bar as well as a run the wires...

    Reviving an old 2g (hopefully)

    Next to get touched was the wiring, I want everything as clean as possible I decided on top of relocating the fuse box and the battery figured I’d route the engine harness as clean as possible and take off all the old convoluted tubing and soft rubber sheathing that was now solid plastic. It got...

    Reviving an old 2g (hopefully)

    (Apologies for multiple posts quickly, figured I’d break up the content as it makes sense)At this point I made the decision to rebuild the bottom end, i figure why not just go pretty all out with the bottom end so anything I want to do later does not get complicated with having to give the car...

    I drove the DSM and made some light mods immediately after purchase.Fmic, 16g, 1,000ccs, ECMlink, 3 port boost solenoid etc.I was driving it home from cars and coffee one day having some good fun on the freeway when I saw my temp gauge absolutely skyrocket. Just as I suspected, it was a...

    Facebook's negative impact on car culture and tech info

    Reading this thread has made me ashamed to be a lurker. I totally slipped into the “most questions have been answered and you’re looking for that thread” demographic. I can’t stand Facebook and 110% avoid it and the only used parts I’ve bought for my DSM have been from tuners.Trying to be...

    2G No clue what part this is, need help identifying

    My mistake the nick is on the oil pump cover, you can see it at the top photo at the 12:00 position. The reason the car came apart was a trashed head gasket so the head is going to a machine shop anyways just to get it milled flat again. The temp needle spiked hard when the head gasket let go...

    2G No clue what part this is, need help identifying

    It turns out it did fall out, There is a Knick on the stub shaft and a Knick on the front cover and the bolt is even still in there which leads me to believe it was while the engine was running.It also confuses me how my car stayed running or what else would’ve caused the light damage on...

    The timing belt was not In the motor when I pulled it, the pulley for the timing belt is still in place. Don’t mean to sound inept I think I overthought it a bit off the bat. Thank you I’m gonna tear into it tonight and see if I can’t get some answers

    I will see, I’ll remove the oil pump and front case tonight when I get off work and report back. I’m not sure when or what happened. There are no signs of starvation at the head and I haven’t found shavings anywhere.

    2G No clue what part this is, need help identifying

    Is there any way I knocked this loose during disassembly? Would it cause the oil pump to not be driven at all? I guess I’ll answer a lot of these when I pull this engine apart further but I have not gotten to the oil pump yet. I didn’t notice any symptoms of oil pump failure prior to pulling...

    Hey guys I recently pulled the 7 bolt out of my dsm. Forgive me if it’s a newb question this is the first dsm I’ve ever torn down. When I removed the oil pan I found this guy jangling around inside it. Upon further inspection I noticed both balance shafts have been deleted in this engine and...

    2G 3 warning lights and stall

    On most cars if the key is turned but the engine isn’t one those lights come onCharging because the alternators not spinning, oil pressure because your oil pump isn’t working. Brake I have no idea, I daily a civic and when I turn the key to crank the engine the brake light comes on. I don’t...

    Random Fuse/wire harness

    I wasn’t around for them. But I’m under the impression alarm systems were a popular thing in the 90s and early 2000’s. It very well maybe some other piece of non factory electrionic equipment. Trace the wires and find where they go, if the other side of the plug is there follow that. If not then...

    2G Fluid barely coming out while bleeding (URGENT)

    You’re almost there, try it again and try some light taps on the flexible line and banjo bolt, I’ve had stubborn bubbles get trapped and wiggled them free that way.

    2G Fluid barely coming out while bleeding (URGENT)

    Bleeding with conventional bleed screws is a 2 person job but an easy one, are the screws nasty and covered in road grime?It sounds dumb but is there any chance the fluid is getting to where the clear tube turns and just running down the tube? Sounds like a stupid thing to think of, but...

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    I didn’t even notice that box! Man I feel like a noob, I’m going to give that a shot when I get the chance.I went to adjust the TPS and I could not for the life of me get a wrench on the bottom bolt especially with the engine still hot. That and I zoomed way in on “tps voltage” on the logging...

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    I’ve found what I believe to be a bad coil pack, primaries reading 1.5/1.2 and secondary reading 16.13/16.31Those numbers off enough to cause an intermittent or partial misfire like I’m experiencing? Either way i will be purchasing a new coil and still uploading the revisions into ECMlink

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    I feel like a donkeys rear for not giving them a shot yet but I don’t get much time to play with my dsm during the week. I’m gonna try them out hopefully tomorrow before work. I have a pretty demanding day job (jet engine mechanic) that eats more of my time than I’d like. However I’ve taken...

    I didn’t even notice “coolant fuel adjustment” wasn’t stock, I’ve been doing my best to try and set anything I could find back to factory settings (just to get everything functioning correctly and then work from there)On a side note I have tried the car on the stock ECU and it still sounded...

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    Do you know why idle would be around 12:1 if that’s the case? As far as the fuel system it seemed to be working just as youd expect with the narrowband. “Front o2” rises and dives across stoich like the ecu is trying to float around 14.7 but my estimate said 12

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    I’ll give that another shot, the idle changed any time I pulled a plug wire. Last time I tried that I was using cheap plug wires and they arc’d Through the boot. When they did the idle would steady out slightly, but if I pulled them all the way out it would dip and sound rough. I’ll get a video...

    I’m hoping, I wish I could’ve tested it tonight but I will be sometime this week. I’ve found the ohm limits for the coil pack but not yet the PTU. I’m going to try and track those down

    2G Dsm sounds like a wrx

    Hey I’m needing help with my dsm. I have a 98 gsx. I bought it kind of hacked, I’ve done a lot to it so far. Originally I picked it up with some pretty mean boost leak problems. Diy front mount was garbage.It got a vrsf, 16g installed. Boost leak tested to 25psi. Fixed a couple couplers...
