Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Posted by Anonymous on
The screeching noise is most likely the alternator belt slipping. The higher RPM suggests that alternator may have failed. There is a second belt for the AC. If the alternator belt is self destructing, be aware that it runs the water pump as well, and the engine may overheat. Have the engine checked ASAP.

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.

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.
