I had the same problem with my 2003 Eclipse GTS (bought brand new); I found the rear passenger floorboard soaking wet one day. The dealer eventually did a pressure test in order to locate the source of the leak; a tiny hole under the weather stripping on the roof edge. Get someone to do a pressure/leak test ; otherwise they'll just keep telling you they can't find the source of the leak.

i have a 99 with the 420a engine, i rebuilt the top end cuz the water pump went out and needed to replace a head gasket. well it has a really hard time starting, it turns over nice and fast, but once it starts it runs perfect. what could be causing the hard start?

im not real sure but it sounds like it could be you throttle postitioning sensor, i have a 1997 eclipse and it does the same thing. once you disconnect the plug that connects to the TPS it idles funny up and down til it warms up then it runs pretty good just a little off so thats my first suggestion.

Hey im new to this forum. Thanks in advance. My car died while i was on the way home one day. Ive check to see if the timing belt broke and nope, i then checked the compression, and it has(but the first and fourth fills up with fuel). ive changed the maf, crankshaft sensor, fuel filter, and pump. The injectors spray even, and it has spark. The thing is it starts but indles rough and turns off. It feels as if it was out of timing but i took it apart and everything lines up. One of my friends told me that i bent a valve or two. I just need to know if there is something that im missing before i take the cylinder head apart.
#62 of 84 1997 Eclipse 2.0 turbo
May 06, 2010 (3:06 pm)
I have a 1997 Eclipse 2.0 turbo GST and I need to rebuild or replace the engine. I have never worked on a car that was front wheel drive, My question is, How do I pull the engine? Where can I find a step by step guide? Does the transmission come out with the engie or leave the transmission in the car?
I also I heard some cars the engine comes out from underneath? I bought a CHiltons manual but it does not cover engine removal.
any help is greatly appreciated, Thank You
Also, I noticed a motor mount bolts to the head?

We had the same problem on our 2001 Eclipse GS, in the engine compartment close to the bottom of the car on the firewall, there is a plastic nipple that comes out of the condenser under the dash. I put a piece of rubber hose that was about 4 inches long and bent in an L shape on that nipple, pointing down, no more water on the floor.

Okay, I've been having this problem when the car gets hot, when I shut it off, the radiator starts to bubble and the reservoir fills up and over flows. The car doesn't over heat, it just does this, especially on days that are over or close to 100F degrees. Could this be a water pump problem?
#65 of 84 Engine miss
Aug 09, 2010 (6:43 am)
Several months ago, the service engine light in my 2000 eclipse came on and posted O2 sensor codes, so I had them replaced. About 2 months ago, the engine started to sound like it was missing, I took it in to my mechanic, whom I trust, and he said there was a short because and replaced the plugs and wires. He wasn't the one who installed the new O2 sensors. That seemed to solve the problem but now the engine is missing again. The SES light has been lit ever since it originally came on and is still posting an O2 sensor code. Has anyone else had this problem before? Or is this something with my electrical system?
