SOURCE: 2001 mitsubishi eclipse 3.0l ticking noise

No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.

SOURCE: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse will not idle, all else OK, just repl bat

I can only offer these few ideas.

  1. The TP throttle position sensors for this year group fail often Pin 1 to Pin 4 resistance should be 3.6 to 6.3 ohms but you need to remove the two 7mm bolts that hold this sensor on the front side of the throttle body, then rotate the two bolstered center and see a change in resistance from low to high. If the resistance remains fixed, the sensor is rusted out and must be replaced.
  2. The IAC motor is mounted on th LH side (driver's) of the throttle body. It should make a clicking sound when the key is turned from Lock to Run. Pin 2 to Pin 1, Pin 2 to Pin 3, Pin 5 to Pin 4, and finally Pin 5 to Pin 6 must all have continuity at 38 to 52 ohms.
  3. Check for any vacuum leaks.
  4. Remove clean and check EGR.
  5. If this is a Cranks but will not start problem, check the owners manual for Theft Deterant UNLOCK proceedure. If there is power at the rear fuel pump relay coil and no power at the MFI/ASD front relay coil and no spark, then its the security system.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi Eclipse Harmonic Balancer 3.0L Removal

There is a panel inside the wheel well that you can take off that gives you perfect access to the harmonic balancer. A special tool is required. i had my dad make one because he has access to whatever he needs at the factory. but you can get them at the dealer. i have no clue how much they cost. I can't see any way of doing it without the special tool. after you get the tool its pretty simple to get off. it takes alot of force to break the bolt loose though. i used the handle off my jack as a cheater bar. hope this helps...

Engine got a knocking cold start, silint when hot


It has developed a clicking engine noise on a cold start. After the car has warmed up, the sound goes away. ... Clicking or a sharp tapping from the valve cover on top of the engine would point to a valve train noise. A dull tapping or slapping sound from the side of the engine block would point more toward piston slap.4 Nov 2011

03 eclipse making noises in cold weather


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.

The noise is probably coming from the lifters. Check your oil level and change it if it's dirty.

My Mitsubishi eclipse 2003 overheats when I stand in traffic. Temperature goes up, like crazy. At the shop they said it's thermostat, so I changed it. Everything is still the same. Plus in winter is...


The two statements are contradictory. The thermostat should assist in warming up the engine in the cold but if it is stuck closed it would overheat but warm up quickly. Overheating in the summer could be the fan not kicking in in traffic. You can check a thermostat by boiling it in water and observing the temperature at which it starts to open. This information should be stamped on the unit. You can also watch the fan to see if it kicks in with the engine idling when hot. If it does not it could be the thermostatic switch or the fan itself.

I have a really bad ticking noise in the engine of my 2000 mitsubishi eclipse


First you want to eliminate the simple easily overlooked causes. One would be that your oil level may be low so it wouldn't hurt to check. Another thing that may cause the tapping sound would be that your running too heavy of an oil weight, i believe for your vehicle the recommended is 5W-30, but generally if you were running say 10W-30 you would only get the tapping sound until the oil has circulated and warmed up. Let me know if this helps, if not we could look toward more mechanical type causes.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT that ticks pretty loud until it warms up. A few people have told me to adjust the valves. What are the specs on adjusting them?


I think the best thing to do is just try a lighter weight fully synthetic oil in it. What you're hearing is the valves sticking in oil that is not bleeding down fast enough while it is cold.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse starts sometimes then wont and just makes a clicking sound, is my starter going out?


could be, unless your battery is dying. a nearly dead battery will make clicking noises while it is cranking. if you keep forcing it by turning the key from "run" to "crank" and it gets it to start it may be a dead spot on the starter.

I have a slk55 2006. When Cold starting the enginee. Loud clicking noise occurred when the enginee run @ 5000r/m. Noise comes from the upper part of the enginee. Till the enginee warm up to normal temp.,...


If your revving the engine to 5000 rpm when its cold, chances are the clicking noise is your valves. Cold oil will not get to the top end for proper lubrication until the engine warms up, and running at 5000 rpm with no oil?? not good. If your treating the car like that, I can't believe it hasn't blown up yet.
