Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Open Question

My 2001 GT eclipse made a screeching noise and now it runs at a higher RPM. It made this noises before occasionally when I started the car. Yesterday when I drove I smelled plastic burning briefly and I'm not sure it was from my car, then when the water level on the street was a little high it made the same screeching noise. Now it feels more stiff and does not run as smooth. What us the problem

SOURCE: engine runs rough, or dies when the defroster is turned on!

get your heater core checked out. the heater core is right by the blower motor and if its busted it will blow the smell into your car.

SOURCE: my 98 eclipse is making a screeching noise in the engine

1.Most likely alternator belt is not tight enough or need new one.2. A/C-Power steering belt is loose or need new one. 3. Bearing in A/C-Power Steering Tensioner is going bad. 4. Not the water pump unless you are loosing water all the time. Timing belt runs the water pump & you need to tear down the engine. If so ,you would need to replace the timingbelt,tensioners, and maybe the hydraulic tensioner. NOT FOR $300, more like 5-600. Get yourself a Haynes Manual for 95-99 Eclipse at AUTOZONE,Advanced Auto, or Pep Boys and read up on this.

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.

The water pump is driven by the timing belt. If it has been over 100K, it is time for both to be replaced. If it is the drive belts, be sure to use factory belts, and use the proper tension.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse spider gt won't start after I change alternator belt and steering belt when I try too start is making whyning noise it won't start


Make sure battery is good, battery terminals and cables/connectors connected to alternator correctly and belts adjusted to manufactured specifications. Check to see where the whining noise is coming from, if still present. If not the belts or pulleys it could be the starter.

Screeching noise


Your car needs alignment. The screaming noise comes from tires being dragged over aspnalt. This wears tires very fast.

My mistubishi eclipse GT 2001 strts up just fine but after 10 min. or just after it starts to warm uf it looses its ability to idle. if uit ildles down to below 1500 rpm. it will just die. (stops running)...


The mentioned problem could refer to 2 things, O2 sensor or "clogged" injection system.
If the car changes the RPM dinamically then it would be O2 sensor, often stalls. Regarding clogged injection, preliminary try to rev to higher RPM, if that is the problem fast you will see the difference (maybe solves the problem, maybe will require cleaning.

My 2001 eclipse will not start. i try and turn the key then a loud soaring grind noise is made and it wont turn over>>>>>>


I'm not sure what you mean by "a loud soaring grind noise", but an educated guess would be a bad bendix on your starter. Second to this could be some missing teeth on the flywheel.

I'd suggest you check with friends, relatives, etc. and see if they can recommend a reputable local mechanic to look into this for you.

Good luck!

Screeching sound from engine


I can pretty guarantee you it is your altrnator belt.. By turning on your headlights, it creates more load on the alternator, which in turn makes the belt work harder. To confirm, you can try some silicone spray on the belt. The noise should change or disappear. This happens a lot in winter when dirt gets on the belts.
Usually that will solve it. If not, you may have to get the belt changed.
Good luck,

Dan
