I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2.4 Non turbo sohc fwd.I rebuilt the engine from scratch, The tranny was shot. I got a junkyard transmission and they said that the car was driven in. Here's where...

2 things; If you jack up one front wheel, stick it in gear, does it try and turn the engine? If it does then the trans is turning. Did you check the trans operated in all gears before you fitted it?

Next, is it possible the clutch friction plate is in backwards. If so then the raised side that holds the damper springs is hard up against the fly wheel and causing the drag that prevents the clutch from releasing.
I cant help with info as to whether the trans is a fit but while you are underneath the hood, look and see if the clutch arm appears to move the right amount when the pedal is pressed. The only other thing I can think of is that the trans is seized somehow. You can test this while its jacked up by starting up on idle with it in gear, the raised wheel will turn.. Try this in all gears but BE CAREFUL with it on jacks, better to have jackstands under both sides.

Transmission issues with my 97 eclipse GT-S

you need to bleed your clutch. make sure the cap is on all the way, then have someone press the pedal to floor, open the bleed valve to let air escape and close it back. repeat it 3 or 4 times and it should take of your problem.

Change front tire on 97 honda accord SE

1. Put vehicle in park or in gear if a standard with the emergency brake on I would also put something behind the rear wheel.
2. With your spare tire there should be a tool to remove the nuts holding your tire on, grab that and crack all of the nuts loose, don't remove them yet just start them.
3. Take your jack out (should be with spare tire also) and set it up under your control arm on a flat spot. If not comfortable putting it there put it on the pinch weld (behind tire on frame of car under the door) and jack until the tire comes off the ground.
4. All your nuts are started so now you can remove them and install your spare tire.
5. Tighten nuts as tight as you can
6. Lower vehicle back down and retighten nuts again to make sure they are tight.
7. Take it to a shop, get tire repaired or replaced and have them install it back on for you.

Good Luck

97 CRV wobble on exceleration in front end

Check for: bent rim, out of round tire, bent CV axle
Check by jacking up front end and lowering lower control arms onto two jack stands. Then start vehicle and carefully shift into drive. Look closely at the front tires and axles while rotating for any visible wobble.

buy the book and read it, replacing a clutch on a front wheel drive car is a lot of work.. if you do it put the front of the car on jack stands.. remove both front tires and wheels..make sure you support the engine enough for your own safety. replace all the clutch parts while you are there, disk, cover, throwout bearing.. .. buy quality parts preferably made in Japan or the USA.. good luck
