Question! [03 May 2009|06:06pm]

[ mood | contemplative ]

I just got a 1993 Eagle Talon DL this weekend. It needs a head gasket and I know I should probably replace the head cylinder as well. So the casting is m34 and I'm wondering what the differences in the castings are. If we find this head to be warped or cracked it seems it's going to be hell to find the same casting. All of the auto parts stores up here have reconditioned/remanufactured m39 casts. A friend gave us his rebuilt m36 that didn't work on his 1989 Eclipse with the same engine (4g37 1.8L SOHC). I know the differences in the castings are the size of the cam lobes, but would this m36 be able to work on the Talon with new cams that have the m36 lobe-size instead of the m34?

We tried calling the engine shops around here and a head cylinder shop down the road, but everyone is closed today. :(

Speakers for a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS [08 Jan 2008|06:13pm]

[ mood | curious ]

What size or should I say... what is the best size speaker to buy to replace the factory speakers in the doors and in the back?

I'm pretty sure the one speaker in my passenger side door is busted it sounds horrible.

Have a question. [25 Dec 2006|09:11pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Like 2 months ago the service engine soon light came on and it was running real rough we brought it to Autozone and they said it was a miss firing engine in other words it needed a tune up. Well, we put in new spark plugs and wires... one of the plugs that came out of it was dripping with oil (it's like the first spark plug on the drivers side on a '99 Mistsubishi Eclipse RS.) Was hoping it would clear up on it's own, but I think it's too much oil to do that. Anyways, we just got back from South Carolina to visit family it happened again service engine soon light came on and we already knew it was the same spark plug again and sure enough it was the problem dripping with oil again and it's that one spark plug. I was just curious has anyone else has experienced this same problem with their Mitsubishi and how much did you pay to have the problem fixed? Thinking about putting it in the shop to have it worked on when income taxes come back and considering it only having 71k miles on the car it's worth to fixing it in my eyes.

Thanks for reading.

Happy Memory of the Ruby Mobile. [11 Sep 2006|10:35pm]

Deposit and Decison Made [08 Sep 2006|06:33am]

We've decided on the used 2005 black Toyota Prius.

It was owned by a rental company and it has 38 000 km on it.

It's in excellent condition.

We looked at the history file of the vehicule.

We bought extended warrantee care packages.

And I''m really excited!

I think I'll be really happy.

I know I was looking into the new 2006 model but there's really not much difference except for the mileage and the fact that it's new. That wasn't worth the extra $6000 to us.

so here we go for the $42 000 used Prius...


I have however had a great time with my Spyder. Many great memories. I'm so glad that the Ruby Mobile was a part of my life. I'll be sure to post some pictures of that beauty before it was stolen and torn into. Poor thing.

I also found out that Mistubishi is involved in the buisness of destroying the rainforests. I was not happy at all with this. They buy and sell the wood chopped down from rainforests. If anyone's interested, I'll post the links I was givien. I was rather dissappointed, I must say.

Nonetheless. I loved my Mitsu.

2005 Mitsu stolen [05 Sep 2006|02:36pm]

Well guys, here ends my time with you.

I wont' be buying another Mitsubishi.  I did have the offer from the insurance to fully replace my 2005 Eclipse Spyder with at 2007 for $42 000, but I decided against it.  It was a beautiful car while it lasted.  I have great memories with the Ruby Mobile.  I even took it on my honeymoon to Niagara Falls.  While I was there and parked, I came back from a fun night to see that someone had left a rose there for us on our "just married" decorated car.  It was the kindness most unexpected thing ever!

If this community was more active, I'd post some pictures before I go, but I'm not sure who actually reads this.

So farewell.  I will now be driving a 2005 Black Toyota Prius.

New member!
I feel like I should be saying 'nerd alert nerd alert' because I have so many questions!!!

I'm saving saving saving up for a (hopefully) 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX.
I've been wanting this car for quite some time now.
But what I want to do is put the engine from a 3rd gen eclipse in so that I can have tip tronics.
Right now I'm researching the amount of time and work and exactly what else it would take to do this.
Money will not be an issue, my car will get all the love it needs.
But now the question is what could get in the way?
Any ideas/

Decals [28 Dec 2005|02:15pm]

Well, today I took my car to the car wash. And I noticed that my RS decal was missing the R on the trunk. Is there a place where I can go to replace the decal? I tried ebay, but it keeps bringin up Chevrolet RS instead of Mitsubishi RS.

Help? [26 Dec 2005|05:02am]

[ mood | anxious ]

I'm seriousy due for some new wheels. I have some cash saved and have a car to trade in. Everyone keeps recommending Honda Civics or Toyota Camrys.

What I really wanted was a Mitsubishi Eclipse, but I keep hearing about financial problems with the company, and more disturbingly, reports about faulty transmissions.

I can't afford to get a new car that might be breaking down often or that I'll end up having to dump within the first year and trade up yet again.

Comments? Input? Advice???
