Yea I'm pushing 80k miles and haven't done it yet. I hope the car makes it though winter so I don't have to change it in the cold. I don't think another 10k miles will hurt me, but you really never know....

I snapped mine in my 1G and the engine was fine after replacement which also cost 800 dollars. It is pretty much an instantaneous engine shutdown. I would think if the 1G already had that safety feature the newer version's do as well. However by no means am I saying to drive your car until it snaps.

The 1g must have been a non-interferance engine. Ours is an interferance one, so the engine will go boom!

Actually the 63 is an interference engine now that I think about it. Maybe I just got lucky Idk. Back when it happened it was my first car I was young and not really into cars yet so I didn't know much about that stuff

Just make sure you don't cheap out on timing belt components, as they are a pretty critical part of the car.

OK, don't cheap out on parts!!! > WARNING Will Robinson, WARNING!! <

Think this one through! You either have the dealership do all the work to include parts, or your warranty is useless!! Period, end of story.

If you buy the parts and something happens, they'll say you bought inferior parts, they just installed them for you. This will not be covered under warranty. Even some parts have selflives, especially rubber type parts. What do you thing they do with the old out of date parts??

Very important when you buy parts, and I can not stress this enough when buying rubber type parts. I've worked on many older cars. I've seen brand new OEM parts come in that were in all respects looked brand new, but were past their shelflive. Installed the parts and a month later they broke. Hmmm... I'm not saying this is always the case, but when you buy off the internet, you don't always get what you expect.

Think of all the hard lessons people have learned here at 4G, some operator error, most were not. If the dealership does the work, then they are responsibe for the first 12mths, or 12,000 miles, after that the warranty will kick-in.

Looking at the service manual it doesn't look to be that bad of a job, just time consuming. The 4 cyl requires a special tool, and so does the 6 cyl but I think that can be easily fabbed.

Hello all. First post. I recently purchased a 2006 GS for my daughter. Car looks great so far. On the subject of the timing belt, I just received quotes from two local Mitsu dealers. One was for $545 and the other for $535. Both had it in the books for 4.5 hours of labor.

That sounds about right. I'm not sure on the GS but is is recomended on the GT to change out the water pump at the same time as preventive maintenance and to save you the $500 for maintenance for changing that out in 20,000 miles.

However, check your Owners Manual and what should be done/changed/inspected at 60,000 miles, that way your car will be good to go for another 60,000 miles.

Here is a link to the scheduled maintenance chart that may be helpful.

Here is the link to the the Eclipse Service Manual, everything you wanted to know about this car and how to repair or replace the parts.

Oh, welcome to Club 4G !!

Thanks for the link. Has the typo on page 47 been discussed yet? Under severe usage conditions, they suggest changing the timing belt every 960,000 km or 6,000 miles. (Obviously they meant 96,000 km and 60,000 miles.) But 960,000 km equals about 596,516 miles. That's like to the moon and back or 40 years of driving at 15,000 miles/year. Very funny.
