    just bought it about it 3 months ago, but i did have a 96 before that and thats what happened to it. same kind of rattle under hood. think that's probably the problem? this one is still running though. how much do you think that fix would cost me while it is still running?

    Ok, one more question. Where is the location of the rattle?

    Is it under the valve covers or , is it in front of the engine?

OK, the correct interval for the replacement of the timing belt for this model is every 60,000 miles. if the belt hasn't been changed, i would do so asap. it may be to late considering that it has started to rattle.

The timing belt can become damaged before it actually breaks, in return, causing valve timing to shift. this will cause the valves to tap the pistons during the idle.

This will run you about 1100 dollars at the dealership plus, they will also replace any push rods if need.

Cant find the relays for the fuel pump? think its a bad pump but want to look at the relayes first.


The relay for a 96, can be accessed by taking off the right panel of the console, they are behind it. on the 95 eclipse its under hood, in the relay box, it should be labled. if you still cant find it. call any auto parts srore and they will tell you. have a good day !!

Look under the dash on the drivers side. There should be a port. Some have a plastic or rubber cover on them to keep them clean. It will be the same size as the end of the plug on the reader.

I have a 95 Eclipse and I recently had to change out my TCU........ Transmission Control Unit, This should be located directly beneath the center console. First I would have the transmission services if problem persist then proceed to changing out the TCU you can get off of ebay. As far as i know there should be 3 Computers in our cars. 1 the Electronic Control Unit located behind radio 2 Transmission Control Unit located under center console and 3 Airbag Control Unit located under hood, Hope this helps.
