SOURCE: Adjusting Headlights w/2001 Eclipse?

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

sorry, first guess is that your transmission oil pump went out and now you have no pressure to operate the clutches inside the tranny, second is the tranny is "burned' which happens when the transmission filter and fluid were not replaced within a reasonable amount of time and the surface of the clutches started getting worn off,, you would have noticed as you would loose power (acceleration) or not shifting properly over a period of time. unfortunately either one requires removal of the transmission and replacing the components inside..

Shifting column is not working properly, tranny is ok

Take the cable or linkage off the tranny. Push the tranny arm into park. If it is a linkage then adjust your linkage to match to tranny arm. If it is a cable with it disconnected see if it moves when you move the gear shift, The cable should move freely. You can pull on the end of the cable to make sure it is not broken. Make sure that your tranny arm moves in all gears. Please chalk the wheels so you don't get hurt.

My 1993 mitsubishi eclipse wont go into 5th gear

1st and 5th are the most stressed gears and the mitsubishi how ever fluid level and also adjusts ments are also possible issues i would check fluid levels as previously stated then adjust the shift cables becaause over time they do stretch and if it is stretched enough it will not allow a full engaement of the gears which can cause grinding or just no power if both of thos dont work look to internal parts like synchros a total shaft replacement will not be the case as the gears are paired on shafts but 1st and 5th are not paired together has there been anytype of work on or around the tranny
