2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder -Replacing the radiator and gas tank

I have a major oil leak and radiator leak.  I don't have the money to have someone fix the car right now, but I was wondering how difficult it would be with no experience to replace the radiator myself.  It has a crack on the front top of the radiator. I tried using a glue that was recommended but it never worked.  I also have a bad oil leak and I was told I need to replace the pan.  Is it possible to do a home replacement on this too?  I'm pretty desperate for some advice.

Do the mechanical work is solely based on your mechanical ability, with that said if you can follow instructions to the " T " the literature I will provide you will give you all the instruction you need, also what parts, tools and so on to complete your repairs at a far better price than a shop.

you can find the documentation on your oil pan beginning on page 38

This will give you a complete breakdown of the cooling system. If you need any advice just let me know. Also let me know if this solved your problem. Good luck.

Unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself. You will need to take the car to either the dealer or a shop which specializes in fixing convertible tops, headliners, etc (commonly called an automotive trim shop) Most used car dealers have a trim shop that they can recommend.

SOURCE: 1996 eclipse spyder runs for a few minutes then stops

Check maf sensor and throttle body, intake leaks downstream of the maf. Could also be a clogged injector or fuel filter. If you have some carbon buildup a can of Seafoam in the gastank will help. Also would be a possible failing throttle position sensor
Please kindly let me know if the information was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

SOURCE: Changing the front speaker 2001 Eclipse Spyder

There are 7 screws all together to remove the door pannel. First, you have to take off the hanlde for the door. the 2 plastic covers on the handle pop off revealing 2 screws on the top and bottom, remove those. then behind the the door handle on the inside, pull it as if you were to open it and there is a screw that you have to remove. Then there are 2 screws on either side of the door pannel, both are farily close to the top, remove those, and then its just a matter of popping the pannel off. start from the bottom, pop it off then slide it up. becarefull, after the door panel is free, there is a connection for the power doors and windows unhook that then the pannel will be free. after that the speaker will be right there and its common sense on removing that. good luck.

sorry, first guess is that your transmission oil pump went out and now you have no pressure to operate the clutches inside the tranny, second is the tranny is "burned' which happens when the transmission filter and fluid were not replaced within a reasonable amount of time and the surface of the clutches started getting worn off,, you would have noticed as you would loose power (acceleration) or not shifting properly over a period of time. unfortunately either one requires removal of the transmission and replacing the components inside..

At traffic light and car wouldnt go forward but

You'll have to find the source of the leak to find out what went bad. It almost sound like a line going to the transmission cooler, but you could have a hole in the transmission casing. See if you can put it on a jack and figure out where it's leaking from.
