How do i change 1999 mitsubishi eclipse head gasket


Hi there, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

If you've never changed a head gasket before and you do it wrong it can be very costly to you. Because if you fail to set up the timing correctly you can bend every valve in the head costing you big time money. BUT, if you are still wanting to do it yourself go to my website, click on "Contact Us" and give me all the information about you car. "Engine size, Make, Model, Year and VIN number and your name. I'll help you step by step, BUT, understand I will not be responsible if you miss a step and bend the valves, but if you listen carefully and follow instructions we should be able to get you through. It's up to you, my website is below. Have an awesome day! Auto Repair

BLOWN HEAD GASKET


You can do a compression test on each cylinder, if one or two cylinders are lower than the others, that could be a sign of a blown head gasket. Also, do a pressure test on the cooling system to see if the cooling system holds pressure. Check your oil for anti-freeze, and vise-versa. Any white foam around the oil cap? Or oil around the radiator cap?

Need radio code for 99 eclipse sn 97c415972 im not about to pay for a code to use a radio that isnt worth 10$ my aftermarket went out and im stuck with this paper weight until i get a code


Hi there, Had a few problems with my car and removed the battery. So I too needed the code. By using the numbers you assign to each radio station is how I entered the code then just hit am/fm. The code I used for my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse is 1571. Good Luck,
