    2G Blown head gasket help

Or is the 1K+ You sending the car and them taking off the head and resurfacing the head? If that is the case why not...

    Rear bash bar on 2G eclipse ..

    Sup guys I was thinking of doing a rear bash bar on my 2G… I’m pretty sure you only see them on RWD cars or drift cars but I actually love the style of it, it kinda opens the rear where you can see the exhaust and suspension components and it gives you an easy access to jack up the rear of the...

    1999 Eclipse GS

    After doing everything I can think of before doing head gasket, I wanted to try a CAI and see if it would help with my engine overheating and as I expected, it worked. It only has over heated ever once and a while but rare now. Usually only on very hot days.

    1999 Eclipse GS

    Round 2 of coolant change and burp but then realized the coolant pipe was rusted and leaking, changed the hose first hoping it was just a hose, but still leaked after warmed up. Found a guy parting out a 420a and picked up his coolant pipe and left marker light pig tail since mine was cut off...

    After getting the car fixed and drivable she went to get a smog, her first fuel up, oil change, coolant change and burp. She was driving good but would still over heat a lot for some reason.

    420A 5th gear grinding/loud scratch

    Since I do plan to keep this car for as long as possible, It would be worth to just rebuild the transmission and build it at the same time as it’s getting rebuilt because I do plan to turbo down the road. Win/win eh :sneaky:

    420A 5th gear grinding/loud scratch

    And it would be for only 5th gear? Or all of them

    420A 5th gear grinding/loud scratch

    It’s a 1999 eclipse FWD non turbo. 420a. I will read up on all that when I can. I will also talk to my mechanic too. Yes I can shift into all gears when car is off and on, only when car is on 5th grinds. Thank you for the forums links !

    420A 5th gear grinding/loud scratch

    My 5th gear grinds when I shift normal into it, no other gear grinds or makes a loud scratch noise but only 5th. I recently had a new clutch kit installed and I believe so was the fluid as well. Everything was changed that came with the clutch kit. Ever other gear shifts normal (1,2,3,4) reverse...

    420A 2gNT How does my engine look?

    I also haven’t done a cylinder compression check because I don’t have the equipment to do so. Sometime soon I think I will take to my mechanic or look into buying a compressor for the engine to check.

    420A 2gNT How does my engine look?

    I did also drive the car for awhile before doing an oil change so the oil did have some time used in the engine when I had it.

    420A 2gNT How does my engine look?

    The oil after a change is just black. No shiny glitter. I’ll show you a photo of what it looked like. But yes I have noticed that black spot. I’m sure it’s an exhaust leak and I will be getting to that sometime this upcoming week. Here’s the photo of the oil after an oil change. This was when I...

    420A 2gNT How does my engine look?

    Oh okay yeah hopefully it’s just some kind of identification, but yes the car runs good. Used to overheat but after I changed that with new coolant hoses, new intake, and new coolant. After then I’ve taken the car 50+ miles out for trips and never given me problems. Transmission is more of a...

    420A Spark plugs okay?

    Most probably. Before I got the car the guy had it sitting from 2017 to October 2021. October is when I had the car running and fixed the main issues. Before that the only service record I see that passed emissions and inspection was from 2014 @185,xxx miles. I’m thinking the park plug were from...

    420A Spark plugs okay?

    I changed out my spark plugs for new denso spark plugs. Here are some photos of the ones i took out of my car. I have no previous service record so i don’t know how long or how many miles they have. Do they look super bad or is that normal for spark plugs? Should I be worried? Spark plug 1-4 in...
