I think the best thing to do is just try a lighter weight fully synthetic oil in it. What you're hearing is the valves sticking in oil that is not bleeding down fast enough while it is cold.

Hi i do have 2006 eclipse GT 3.8 and i have one problem in the cold days in morrning only u can hear clicking ticking so loud some told me the lefters some told me the oil pump but when ever i restart the...

Lifters use oil to create pressure in them. the pressure usually is maintained after the car is shut off. If the lifters are going bad, then they do not hold the pressure and will tick until the pressure rebuilds in them. It seems that when you wait 5 seconds, it is enough time for the pressure to maintain. First, I would check the oil pressure, if it is good then I would try a solvent that is designed to help lifter issue. If neither works, then you may have to change the lifters.

Whats the firing order for the 2000 mitsubishi eclipse gt on the distributor cap?

This process did not work for me on mine. I have a 2000 eclipse gt and I done it exactly how you say above and it wasn't right. Still dont know what it is.

Havent tried it yet to see if it works but that's what i was told

I have a really bad ticking noise in the engine of my 2000 mitsubishi eclipse

First you want to eliminate the simple easily overlooked causes. One would be that your oil level may be low so it wouldn't hurt to check. Another thing that may cause the tapping sound would be that your running too heavy of an oil weight, i believe for your vehicle the recommended is 5W-30, but generally if you were running say 10W-30 you would only get the tapping sound until the oil has circulated and warmed up. Let me know if this helps, if not we could look toward more mechanical type causes.

2001 mitsubishi eclipse 3.0l ticking noise

No. The valves are hydraulic. Pour about a coke tin amount of diesl in with the engine oil. Run the enginr to normal teperature. Drain the oil and refill with new oil. It sounds like a lazy or blocked follower. Once you do this it should disappear.
