  9. wierd clanking noise coming from... suspension??

    Ok for the longest time I was driving with 100% dead rear shocks. When I would drive over bumps or potholes I would hear clanking noise coming from the rear, I also thought it was the shocks but I replaced them with semi-new ones and I still have the sound even though the ride is wayyy better...
  10. dash lights not working!

    I dont know how I never noticed before but the little warning lights in the dash dont work. The ones on the left light up but the right side doesnt light up at all. Im guessing that is where the get fuel warning and stuff is supposed to be.
  11. Throttle Body screws stripped!!!

    I was going to replace the o-ring, not the screw. And I have idle problems so I figured Id take it out and clean the TB to see if it affects my idle problems.But anyway I decided to just replace the o-ring without cleaning the TB, when I pulled the screw out the bottom was black and I...

  13. Cons of Boost Guage with no Vacuum

    Well I just installed my boost guage yesterday, and found people prefered guages that read vacuum ( 10psi in hg or w/e) but mine doesnt, what are the cons of having one that only reads from 0-30 if any?
  14. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    Thanks so much for the info it helped alot. Well I did another leak and it seems that its the insulators that are leaking. I am going later to pick up the parts from the dealership but the parts guys was confused when I asked if they had a BISS screw o-ring, is there another name for this?
  15. Suspension Help

    Hello, I am planning on replaceing my shocks because they are shot. My ride is horrible, I am just going with something simple maybe GR 2s, do those give a comfortable ride? But my real question is do I have to change the springs, can they go bad? Or will I be ok just changing the shocks?
  16. 2G Can't get boost leak test to work

    Im not sure if I just read it wrong or what. But you dont connect the tester to your intake pipe. You can connect it to the turbo inlet .
  17. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    I searched Napa for the parts I need and I found something for the fuel injectors is this what i need ? I only saw a throttle body gasket, would I have to get...
  18. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    Ok so I did the boost leak test earlier, my results were; so far two noticeable leaks. One was coming from a screw on the throttle body im guess thats the BISS screw, and there was another leak I couldnt really tell where it was coming from. It would start to hiss a second or two after the...
  19. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    I dont know if I mentioned it before but after my initial boost leak test my car ran worse. And there was also a pop or two as I took it for a test drive. Theres no smoke or anything and it looke fine but rides crappy. I very barely even boost. My car is now really sluggish. I dont feel like...
  20. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    My compressor is about the same. How will I know if I blow a seal or coupling system??
  21. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I just ordered a boost guage dont know how long until it arrives. But as far as the tester I had to buy a 3" to 2.5" rubber tube from autozone that is for intakes because there largest hose size was only 2". So my pvc pipe is 2.5" i.d. But it doesnt sound like any air...
  22. How do I make / buy / use / troubleshoot a boost leak tester? [merged]

    ok so I made my own boost leak tester but I dont think its working. Its kind of larger than normal, but when I stuck it in my car and pressed air in I dont hear anything leaking. I used a large air compressor, I was scared it was going to blow something because I cant regulate how much air I...
  23. Dramatic Loss Of Power!!

    Ok I will give you the backstory first. I just got my head rebuilt and changed all the gaskets recently. I put everything back together and it was fine except for the idle. When I would be in park the car would idle at 2k but in drive it would idle at 1k, also my oil pressure gauge would...

  25. What the heck did I blow?

    I checked all my fuses no fuses are blown. Is there anyway to check if I fried the wire, or if I fried somethign that controls the electrical circuits?
  26. What the heck did I blow?

    I hope the ECU isnt blown either, could it be the Starter? Let me clarify what I did and what happened because I was a bit anxious before. I connected one of the ground wires to the positive on the battery, I then proceeded to jump the dead battery. Smoke was coming out from the back on the...
  27. What the heck did I blow?

    Thanks for the reply but the alternator fuse isnt blown i just checked it. Also, in that link the guys car still started, mine is completely dead. Wont crank, start, no power. I scared I fried the starter or something related to it.
  28. What the heck did I blow?

    Ok so I was changing the battery in my car. But put one of the negative cables on the positive, when i get the booster cables and clamp them on and clamp the other end to another battery i start seeing smoke coming from the battery, and from somewhere all the way in the back of the enging...
  29. got my new car!!! on ebay! [Merged 6-7]

    Yeah, I think it is ridiculous how people want to sell a car for way more than its actually worth, and theres people out there with wallets bigger than their brains to buy them. Whats even worse is half the time they take car home, only to find millions of problems with it that werent mentioned...

  32. Whats causing this oil leak??

  33. Whats causing this oil leak??

    Becuase that and the massive oil leak.
  34. Whats causing this oil leak??

    Thank you for all your replies. As for the the VC gasket I am not sure, if it was it was probably done by one of the 8 previous owners (yes i did a carfax about 8 owners). So far the diagnosises are: oil return line, cam seals, crankshaft seal, o rings, HG, VCG, and check for exaust leak.So...
  35. Felt or Metal HG?

    Should I buy a stock or metal HG for my car? I am probably goin to upgrade the turbo to a 14b and push the psi to whatever is safe without other mods.

  43. Machine Shop Scared of Eclipses!!!

    Ok so I am getting my head rebuilt so I start calling a few local shops and asking for prices. This one shop replies "sure we rebuild heads" I asked the price he replied "what kind of car is it?" I told him 95 Eclipse 2.0 turbo, he replies "nope dont want no part of it." really? I said "yea I...
  44. Anyone reccomend a machine shop in north jersey?

    I am looking to get my head rebuilt, does anyone know of a good machine shop to do this?
  45. Major Oil Leaks !!!

    Just to clarify, upon acceleration it started slowing and it died this process took no longer than about 30 seconds. I doubt I screwed the whole engine because I filled it back up with 4 quarts of oil the same day and drove it home. The only problem was the oil leak.
  46. Major Oil Leaks !!!

    Ok I need help diagnosing perhaps several oil leaks. Currently my head is off and is going to go to the shop soon to get rebuilt. However, I notice that everytime I would park somewhere I would leave behind oil on the ground. Recently I was driving and upon acceleration, the car started losing...
  47. Question about the oil return line

    Is this the 1g return line needed for the swap?
  48. Head Rebuild

    I was thinking maybe it could be an oil feed or return line. Any thoughts?
  49. Head Rebuild

    Thanks for the last two replies, but now my mechanic friend is second guessing his diagnosis. In post #5 it shows where their is one slight oil leak, and another that is the main problem. Just curious what else it could be other than a cracked head.
