1999 mitsubishi eclipse..4 cyclinder (non-turbo) engine pulleys faced toward right passe.nger..i have front right jacked and braced with tire and inner plastic guards off..have main belts off..seems only problem is getting the engine mount bracket off..have one bolt out but even with jacking the engine up further it doesnt have enough clearance to get the other 2 bolts out. only solution as of now seems to be to drill through the right wheel well and pull bolts out..?!! first bolt was a good 6 inches long..dont know the length on others but definitely not coming out if same size.

I agree....I have done the same thing...Some vehicles have portholes with rubber plugs for that type bolt removal...but very few....It should be done to all ft wheel drives...
However first be sure that you have all mounts loose...there my be another lower mount...I have seen up to 4 different type mount brackets on some engines...Also it seems that you have to jack all of them up way too much and very unsafe looking but that is just the way it is..Some times it is a good idea to loosen the trans mounts to give you another couple inches but cutting the hole is a great idea because you will need it for future use.....Start out with a drill pilot hole and use a hole saw bit for your holes...very simple...Hope this

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.

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Gs non turbo that has a water outlet that has been pitted and needs replacing. I cannot find the outlet for the non-turbo. Any suggestions?

Your problem is most likely because you are describing your vehicle as a "Gs". The only similar listings in the catalog are for a "GSX". (The parts counter person probably has no clue that there is a difference) The GSX is only built in a turbo version, therefore you will not find a water outlet for the non-turbo simply does not exist.

Now, if you simply describe it as an Eclipse, there are water outlets listed for the turbo 2.0L, the non-turbo 2.0L and the non-turbo 2.4L engines. You did not bother to mention engine size, so I will list the part numbers for BOTH of the non-turbo engines.

For the 2.4L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815517

For the 2.0L engine: Compressor Works Part Number 815576

Both are available from AutoZone
