Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Car makes grinding noise when I try to start, after new bolts were installed, started right up then 2 days later, it began grinding again but starts right up if someone holds the starter and engine together. Is there a way to fix this without replacing the starter? My car is a 1991 Mitsubishi Galant

Try using some thread locker on the bolts. If this still doesn't help, you may have to get a helicoil repair kit. These kits repair damaged threads by drilling the bad ones out, tapping the hole with new threads, then screwing a thread adapter in to bring it back to the original size.
Hope this helps:)

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

After new brakes, grinding noise in rear. repair guy says need $600.00 proportion valve job! Already had new one 3 years ago.


The grinding sound could be a brake pad installed wrong or backwards.There should not be any grinding what so ever.There is a serious problem.I would take it to a shop or dealership you can trust and have it check out.

Rattling noise in ignition


Replace The Starter !! Also Be Very Careful When You Pull The Starter Looking For Bolt's And Nuts That Might Have Been Rolling Around Possibly From Vibration!! Again By The Description Of What You Have Stated Sound's Like The Starter (Did You Try To Jump The Solenoid To The Starter?)that would be a reassurance that the starter was bad if you did try to jump the (S) On The Solenoid To The Positve + The Starter Should Turn Over If it Just Spark's And You Are Sure the Battery Read's At Least 12.4 VDC Then Your Starter Is Bad!!!
(Hope This Help's) Best,

I bought a 2000 lincoln ls about a month ago and after we bought it, it started having an over heating problem. Since then, we put new fan, new t-stat, new coils and valves, new radiator cap, new belts,...


I believe you have a head gasket or cylinder head problem (cracked head or blown head gasket).. If it is the gasket, the intake and cylinder head must be removed and a new gasket installed.. If it is the head itself, in addition to what have just said, you will have to have the head repaired or get a reconditoned or new one. This is a major repair.

Car pulls right, terrible grinding noise from front right.


TAKE IT BACK WHERE THEY DONE THE LAST LOT OF WORK and tell them to do the complete job again as it sounds like a con job to me as a wheel aligment should last for a year a least and the grinding is in the braking system and something must still be bent ,
Its still under warranty dont pay any more..

engine is pinking,predetonation of fuel or the fuel mixture is weak which can be caused by a vacumn leak on the inlet manifold ,such as the take off for the servo ,or the manifold bolts loose.Also the timing is set wrong which could be a fault with sensor or the sensor drive ring .Without the car in front of me i cannot really diagnose a fault like this ,either get the VW mechanic to have a look and if he thinks its electronic then take it to VW

Car makes grinding noise when I try to start,


You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

Sounds like the starter is going out. Autozone will check those for free. It's just 2 bolts mounting the thing. It's under the passenger side rear of the engine. Undo battery, those 2 bolts and keep track of which wires go where. Run down to Autozone for a check or a new starter.

It could be the starting motor is faulty or was not installed correctly, particularly if you are finding it turns over the engine slower than it should (dragging and dragging down the battery voltage). When starting the car, the teeth must mesh properly with the ring gear or all sorts of strange things will eventually happen. Alignment is controlled by shims on the mounting bolts and if they are the wrong ones or missing, also usually bad news.
