Rusting strut towers


Yes but you will need a panel beater to do the job. The inner guard (the bit that carries the strut tower) is an integral part of the front of the car and needs to be cut away and another one welded into place. However if one is rusted out the other side may not be far behind so consider the possibility of junking the car (rust ) and getting another one as the repair cost may be more than what it is worth

My tachometer un hooked and i cant find where to plug it in .... 1991 eclipse gsx thank you


your tach is part of the instrument cluster and if it is not working then you might have a problem with the wiring harness... this will require more detailed assistance than that can be provided for free


if however, you are talking about installing an aftermarket tach, then follow the instructions that came with the tach

Change the engine computer


before i start to explain how to replace this i cant stress this enough MAKE SURE THAT IS THE RIGHT COMPUTER FOR THAT ECLIPSE. the 95 non turbo eclipse has a different computer from the 96 to 99. and the gst and the gsx computers are different from eachother. the gst and the gsx computers are also different from the 95 and the 96-99 non turbo eclipses. when you get the computer i would bring your vin number to any local parts store or the dealer and they should know what to do with it. now that that is said. which computer do you need replaced. if your talking about the one inside the car it is located under the center console right behind the e-brake. removing that can be a challenge due to the several bolts that holds it on. you can use a phillips head screw driver but i wouldnt recommend it. i believe it is a 10mm socket that they will fix. after you get that off i would disconnect your battery. wait a few minutes than ground yourself out to the bracket holding the shift bar on(just grab ahold of it) after that is said and done there should be 4 bolts holding it on. (i believe 10mm cant remember) and a clip with several wires going to it. before installing. clean up the area around where the computer sat. remove any dirt or anything that may be there. check the clip that plugs into it for any damage, broken or burn wires, or if the plastic clip in itself is damaged. if not the dealer would be the only place to replace this at and i would strongly recommend a garage putting it in. if all is good installation is the opposite of removal. after you get everything together turn the car to the on possition with out starting the motor and let it sit for about 10 min. this will allow that computer to learn the way your car is set up. after that you should be able to start the motor with out a problem.
if you want the computer under the hood than its simple disconnect 1 or 2 clips and 3 to 4 bolts holding it on. inspect everything before installing the new computer along with cleaning up and dirt or rust in the area. and do the same process i explained about the other computer

SHEET METAL IS RUSTED BY REAR STRUT TOWER 2000 GRAND PRIX


Not that I know of the only thing I know of is to take it to either a body shop or a welder and have a plate welded into place. How old is the escort, it may not be worth the cost. How is the rest of the car rust wise?
