Question about Mitsubishi Eclipse
My Mitsubishi eclipse 95, don't go into reverse anymore, days ago was hard to get the reverse shift, but after a small lub this was working, but seems that a simple lub is not enough...
Check the shift linkage and adjust it according to specs in a Haynes repair manual

I'm assuming that you're asking how to make the car faster with bolt-on modifications.
1. Buy a cold air intake. Preferrably one that puts the actual filter in the fender well. That will help to bring in cooler air, making the air/fuel mixture more dense= better combustion(more power)
2. Exhaust. I'd start with a cat-back exhaust system. They are usually found pretty cheap on ebay. That will help with finding some higher rpm power, and since it starts after the catalyctic converter, it's legal. You might also look into some equal-length headers.
3. Underdrive pulleys. These help lose weight on the rotating assembly of the engine. That will help your engine rev quicker and get you into the RPMs where you make power.
Those will be the easiest for making bolt-on power. If you were to get deeper into the engine there would be better ways to make power; such as cams, forged pistons, nitrous, turbos, etc.
Once you start making some power, you'll probably also want to look into ways to make sure it's getting put to the ground. I would suggest getting a heavier clutch and a lightened flywheel. The heavier clutch would hold more power and the lighter flywheel would allow the car to rev up faster, allowing you to get into the power quicker.

This is a common problem on some GM cars. There is a pressure control valve in the side cover of the transmission that needs to be replaced. The transmission does not have to be rebuilt. You will need to get a side cover gasket also.

Sorry but if your reverse is having trouble you will probably have to replace or rebuild tranny like me. Otherwise try new filter and fluid first.
