Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse

5 Answers

What is the black plastic cover bolted on the intake

What is the Black plastic cover bolted on the (upper i think) intake on 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The black cover holding the cables has dried rotted.

I had my valve cover gasket replaced now the black bracket or case is broken on the intake. I see the black casing has a top and bottom and snaps together to protect the cables inside.

What is the name of the part or part number?

    I want to waste the $25, to make my car look more pleasant to my eye underneath the hood.

    How do I find the Part number? Or order the part online.

    I already called them twice trying to order this part. One guy couldn't find it and the other wasn't sure what the part was. I will have to figure out how to post a photo or video Clip of this part I guess.

    If I could find a chrome or anything to replace that part, it would be great.

    I went to Advance Auto Already also, they said I need to go to the dealership. I will check with Pep Boys if my town has one. Or find sometype of part that will work. Because it looks awful right now.

    I get my parts from the dealership below website but I can't find it in the list.

    Well I was told by one mechanic it's some type of Wiring Harness. It screws onto the Upper Intake. I'm looking for a photo now to post.

    I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse. 3.0L V6

    I can't really tell what type of part that is.

    Thanks for pictures, unfortunately I don't see the part connected to the intake. I'm going to take the photo of the engine.

    The closest thing I found on the picture was "I" and I don't think the part i need is called a "Knock Sensor". I assume the part I'm looking for is basically for looks for the most part.

    One person here told me it was some type of wire harness. A friend of mine said the part could be something made for something called "Lube something" ?

    I will take a photo of the part.

    I try to do a Google search on what you said and I couldn't find any part. Who makes it? I'm sure Mitsubishi gets someone else to make the part for their assembly lines.

The name of this is called the cable sheath or "isolator" and it protects the wire leads from elements and random objects and such.This isolator runs about $35, at your local dealership.Hope I could help.Happy Holidays!!

    I would venture to say that is the Volume Air Flow Sensor harness; its possible that this component built one Intake Air Temperature Sensor and Barometric Pressure Sensor. Just I'm assuming.

    The image helps somewhat, but still, I think it's just a "box" whose function is only to isolate (and sorting) the wires inside. In a search for engine parts, is this:

It's just a plastic cable tube that you can pick up at any Auto Parts store like Auto Zone or Parts Source. If you like to keep it as original as much as possible, you can order one from the parts department at any Mitsubishi Dealer since the one's at the parts store will be a universal product and can come in different colours if you desire. Good luck and hope this helps.

    Auto Zone and PEP Boys has the wire covers your looking for in there accessory area, and if you like you can also buy some LED lights for the engine bay to give it a custom show like look. The LED lights will draw next to nothing and is more durable to take the extra heat given off the engine. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know how your project Eclipse is doing and they also has the custom cold air intake for your car. Just ask one of the service rep to help you with what you want to do with your car's engine bay.

  • Harvey N Tawatao
    Harvey N Tawatao Dec 15, 2009

    Pep boys will have them and if you like you can log on tohttp://www.cardomain.com/ and make new friends and ask them for help on to making your Eclipse the car you would like to make it. Yes i am in there too. Good luck friend and keep me posted.

    That's the plastic cover to your fuel injectors wire harness, the dealer should be able to order that in for you or you can do the Salvage Yard. If you go to the Salvage Yard you can pick them up there for $5.00 and you'll learn how to remove them your self before you work on your Motor. Looks like you have a V6 so any 6 cylinder Mitsubishi engine will have that part you need and if you like you can give it a touch of paint to match your car's body color to give it come contrast. Good luck and keep me posted. Molson.

    Sorrt to hear about your transmission going bad, check all your fuses first and post me what happened. Can't recall if you have a sealed transmission or not. If there is a dipstick for the transmission than you don't have a seal transmission and you can check the fluid level. Check the transmission fluid level with the engine not running, and then check it with the engine running. The fluid readings should be high when the engine is not runnning and should drop to the correct level markings when the engine is running. If the level does not go down then you have a transmission pump that has gone bad, If you have a seal transmission, then your going to have to bring it to a shop and have them check it for you. Good luck and hope it's a simple fuse or wire harness. Have a safe new years.

It is the cable run cover, it really is just for looks and doesn't in fact protect anything, it just covers up the cables to give the engine a cleaner more pleasing to the eye appearance, don't waste the $25 to replace it.

    this is so simple, just go to the dealer and have them (the parts folks) bring up the area of the engine where this part is and then poi nt it out to them, they will do this for free, u are complicating a very simple task. Why are you making this so hard??

  • yadayada
    yadayada Dec 17, 2009

    this part may not be serviced, that is true of stuff like this, suggest you start looking around wrecking yards for it, we won't have the part number the dealer must supply that we have no way to reference it, why haven't u gone down to the dealer ???? You can keep joking back and forth here or get the job done, it is 100% up to u if you must have this cosmetic part. Good Luck

How do i change sparkplugs for 2002 mercury couger v6


To remove the spark plugs, remove the covers and you will see how simple it really is. The spark plugs are hiding under the covers.



Not only you will have to lift the covers, but to reach the back three you will have to remove the valve cover. Here's how to:

1. Remove the water pump belt cover (the black cover in the front of the engine compartment that has ?Duratec? on it.) If you have a 1996+ vehicle, you should think about removing it permanently, since it only serves to trap heat and slowly kill the IMRC box electronics.
2. Disconnect the following electrical connectors from the: MAF, IAT, TPS, IAC, and EVR. The EVR connector is black and is located at the very back of the upper plenum, next to the firewall.
3. Disconnect throttle cable from the TB and the cruise control cable, if equipped. For 1995 5-speed vehicles, take care not to lose the metal clip for the throttle cable when you are removing it. Once the cable is removed the clip will slide right off.
4. Disconnect the vacuum lines from the EVR. You may have to wait until the upper intake is unbolted and partially removed for better leverage.
5. Disconnect the vacuum lines from the top of the upper intake. Push down on the black plastic collar with a screwdriver and hold, and then pull the plastic line out of the intake.
6. Remove the air box along with the MAF and accordion tube.
7. Unbolt the throttle cable bracket from the upper intake (three 8mm bolts, one 10mm nut). Set bracket and attached cables aside.
8. Disconnect the air bypass hose at the upper intake. It connects right next to the IAC valve.
9. Disconnect the hose from the PCV valve that goes to the upper intake, underneath the throttle body. This is also a good time to change the PCV valve.
10. Unbolt the EGR valve from the upper intake.
11. Unbolt the upper intake. 12. Carefully remove the upper intake and set it on top of some clean rags or newspaper. It will likely be oozing some oily gunk out the bottom.
13. Cover the openings of the lower intake with clean rags to keep anything from falling into the openings. Anything that falls in will likely end up in the head or the cylinders themselves.
Now you are free to remove the back plugs

Can't find my speedometer cable location on my 1996 mitsubishi eclipse


Hello, there isn't a speedometer cable on these cars. If this is a non turbo model the speed sensor is on the back of the transmission. The easiest way to get to it is to remove the battery, battery tray, and intake tubing from air filter to intake manifold. Once all that is out of the way if you take a light and look on top of the differential ( on these cars it is the back of the transmission towards the firewall). You will be able to see it better with a flash light. If I recall right it is a tall electronic sensor that is held in with a 10mm bolt. Remove the bolt and carefully pull staight up. When it comes out of the transmission there will be a shaft and a small plastic gear on the bottom of the sensor. That is how it reads your speed. To install a new one reverse the process. Make sure to work the new sensor in carefully, don't force, to give the teeth on the gear to align.

1999 cougar no fire to spark plugs


Standing at the licenst plate. Remove the plastic shroud on top of the engine (closest to you) and unbolt the metal box directly below it you can gain access to the front three. As for the back, remove the connector and screw at the 7 o'clock position off to the side of the dist cap. You CAN reach the back three with two 6 inch socket extenders and without remvoing any other engine parts. Should take 30 min regardless of experience. I just did mine and I'm not a mechanic (06/27/07). Answer Hey, I'm not sure if the answer involving removal of the valve covers, and appearently everything else in the engine compartment, is misleading on purpose but...... all you need to do on the 4 cylinder Cougar is pull the wires out by their bases and use a long exstension on your socket. I'm not sure what this guy was trying to do but I hope not too many people followed his advice!! The answer from Greg was exactly correct.
