Out of experience it is alot easier to get the motor out from the bottom. this way you can drop the engine and the tranny at the same time and pull the tranny off while the engine is out of the car rather than in the car

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs non turbo that has a water outlet that has been pitted and needs replacing. I cannot find the outlet for the non-turbo. Any suggestions?


Your problem is most likely because you are describing your vehicle as a "Gs". The only similar listings in the catalog are for a "GSX". (The parts counter person probably has no clue that there is a difference) The GSX is only built in a turbo version, therefore you will not find a water outlet for the non-turbo version...it simply does not exist.

Now, if you simply describe it as an Eclipse, there are water outlets listed for the turbo 2.0L, the non-turbo 2.0L and the non-turbo 2.4L engines. You did not bother to mention engine size, so I will list the part numbers for BOTH of the non-turbo engines.

For the 2.4L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815517

For the 2.0L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815576

Both are available from AutoZone

96 eclipse non-turbo idles way too high, disconnect MAP sensor it goes down but then idles rough


Yes by disconneting the map sensor will drop idle and make run rough, the problem is the idle air control valve or a vacuum leak, try to clean the throtlebody with an old tooth brush and some throtlebody spray cleaner if that doesnt help then try having the iac valve checked the iac valve (Idle air control valve ) if with the engine running listen for a hissing noise that will be a vacuum leak, these are the most common reasons for higher than normal idle. hope this is helpful.

Location of the fuel reay switch


The fuel pump relay for the 2.0 non turbo is mounted on a bracket at the
left rear of the engine compartment. On the 2.0&2.4 turbo it's located
behind the center of the dash. Hope this helps.

MItsubishi Eclipse p1494 code


P1494 code can cause by EGR lift sensor.

When the engine is cold,disconnect the EGR sensor connector and clean the contacts.

Reconnect the EGR connector and reset code.

================

If the code does come back then I will clean the carbon under the EGR valve (or replace it)/
the EGR air passage MUST be clean also.

Please order a EGR base gasket before you start this job.

It's very time consuming but it preventive you must do.

This should free up the movement on the EGR.


I will ran a FULL TANK of Chevron gas to clean out the injector also.


Reset the code and you should be fine.


Please post more information on the comment window.

Motor swap


If your planing on swaping the 2.0 non-turbo(420a) to the 2.0 turbo(4g63t) your problem will be that the motor and transmission are on opposite side of one another. My GST has the trans on the passenger side and the motor on the driver. The 420a is just the opposite. If your serious about it you should get the motor rebuilt with higher performance crank, pistons, rods, exc.  And they make turbo kits for the 420a.  But you'll need better fuel delivery and some mild tuning.
