Any 5w30 to 10w30 weight oil should be fine; use the higher weight oil if you live in a warmer climate or have higher miles on your engine

2000 mitsubushi eclipse keeps shutting off. Ecu and fuel pump replaced

There may be an oil pressure sensor that is telling the computer that there is no oil pressure. That will shut the car off. Either there is not enugh oil pressure or the sensor is malfunctioning.

I have a really bad ticking noise in the engine of my 2000 mitsubishi eclipse

First you want to eliminate the simple easily overlooked causes. One would be that your oil level may be low so it wouldn't hurt to check. Another thing that may cause the tapping sound would be that your running too heavy of an oil weight, i believe for your vehicle the recommended is 5W-30, but generally if you were running say 10W-30 you would only get the tapping sound until the oil has circulated and warmed up. Let me know if this helps, if not we could look toward more mechanical type causes.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT that ticks pretty loud until it warms up. A few people have told me to adjust the valves. What are the specs on adjusting them?

I think the best thing to do is just try a lighter weight fully synthetic oil in it. What you're hearing is the valves sticking in oil that is not bleeding down fast enough while it is cold.

Get the gas pressure checked, if it is low the power is disabled to prevent damage (the gas carries the lube oil so no gas-no oil) you can buy cans and adaptors to top up yourself, the often have the correct oil and a dye to find leaks.
