2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

How do I check the transmission fluid in my 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse? It is a manual tranmission. How do I add fluid if it is low? the car makes a loud squeling noise in any gear or when idling the noise quits from time to time
I think I have ruled out the belts how can I be sure it isn't a belt? I think it is because the tranny is low on fluid is that possible

U check the fluid by taking off the fill bolt and putting your finger in if u can touch fluid ur good if not u should add some. u can buy a tube from a parts store. it screws onto the top of the bottle and u let it go in.

How to drain oil fron tranmission and tork converter

To drain the Transmission Fluid from your Transaxle, you need to loosen the bolts around the Pan. As for taking the fluid out of the Torque Converter, you can not unless you completely remove the Transaxle from the Car along with the Torque Converter. So every time you service the Transmission, you are NOT getting 100% of the fluid. You can do a REVERSE FLUSH on your Transmission at many shops but I do not recommend this. I have had to rebuild many transmissions within 500 miles of the service (many less than 100 miles).

My 2000 mitsubishi eclipse is stuck in third gear. What do i need to fix first. Has anyone ever had this problem

It would help if you said if it was automatic or manual transmission.
I will assume manual.
But it still matters if it is a 4 or 5 speed?
First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level, and make sure it is full.
Synchros always stick when out of oil.
Then it is probably linkage.
Have someone move it forward and back, and watch the linkage from the engine compartment or underneath, to see what is loose or jammed on something.

1996 mitsubishi eclipse manual trans wondering where to fill it thanks

You add and check the Transmision level at the dipstick location, remove the dipstick and use a funnel to add trasmission fluid, the vehicle should be running and at operating temperture as you check the fluid level for a proper reading.

2001 mitsubishi eclipse. Automatic transmission

Transmission may be low on transmission fluid or the transmission fluid pump failed. If it's electrical, you can still get it in to gear, but would not shift gears. Good luck and keep me posted, check transmission fluid level and have the transmission line pressure tested. Before that check all your fuses.

I have a 4 cylinder eclipse 2000 gs.. The problem

Replace the engine and transmission mounts. Replace them with urethane mounts, they cost a little more but last a lift time of your car and will ensure the engine will not move around to much in the engine bay. Good luck and be safe..

Help me fixed this car, 2000 Eclipse GS

hey--it could any of the below:
1. low transmission fluid
2. internal transmission wear - probably time for an overhaul or some kind of rebuilding
If the RPMS DON T RISE - like the engine is bogging down and does not have the power to move the car faster I would suspect
1. a lack of fuel supply - like a weak fuel pump or a restriction in the fuel filter 2. restriction in the exhaust system like a catalytic converter or muffler 3. an engine sensor is out of whack - which will require the use of a computer scanner to read the computer memory
