Good morning, i have a 2003 mitsubishi eclipse v6 24 valve. I am having a hard time changing the gears and my clutch is pretty soft. in my previous car, i was told to put break fluid in the compartment under the hood for the gear and it worked. i have been asking around and everyone keeps laughing at me telling me break fluid can not be used. I need to know if i am wrong/right and i also can not tell where to put the fluid in this car. Please please help. a 18 year old female, broke, collage student.

First you need to find the source that is causing noise. On cold weather is very normal engine belts or belts idle pulley bearings or belt tension-er to make noise, especially when they are old. Also power steering pump too especially if the oil is very old.
Low gear oil wont affect engine performance, unless excessive heat has warped something in your differential and its binding. Is the vehicle hard to accelerate as well as it brakes quickly once you stop accelerating. If not, you likely have a different problem. What led you to gear oil, is there noise in your differential. Gear oil is just what it says Oil for the gears. when it runs low they can overheat, but they should get noisy if the oil is low enough not to lubricate and the telltale heavy oil should be all over underneath your engine and transmission in front wheel drive and all over your differential in rear wheel drive
You could find that at the milage its done you might find that the piston rings and the valve seals have worn and over time have got to the point were the oil isent going to ease off.. but there is a slight thing you can do for a short time, is next time you change the oil put in 20W50 but whatever you do dont flush the engine out with flushing oil as then that will get rid of the carbon then you will be adding oil every day
Or you can remove engine and strip out and rebuild.
as a engine at 6years old done 270.000km when most people do 15,000km a year =90,000km max soits 180,000 more than most so its looking like a rebuild could be the ANSWER sorry mate
Let me know how you get on but change 20w50 first
They change the radio stations and tracks on the CD, and volume. If you don't have the default stereo installed, then the wires probably aren't hooked up properly to the new radio, and the buttons probably don't work.
