I'm getting a lot of play in my 2007 Eclipse GS transaxle. I started making a clicking noise on every revolution so I turned around and jacked it up and now every time I changed the direction I spin the wheel the tranaxle clicks.
Hi,Is this an automatic or manual transmission?What is the current mileage on the vehicle?Thanks
Its an automatic with 50k miles. I just put new coilover springs on a.d went to drive it and it was fine. This is the next day and the tranaxke is acting up. NothingI did or have done had anything too do with the transmission.
Thanks.Can you elaborate a little about what you mean by getting a lot of play in the transmission?
It makes a click on every revolution, and its worse when i'm braking. With the car jacked up if I spin the wheel one way then another the wheel spins free for like an inch then engages real hard. I don't know Howe else to describe it
Thanks.With the front end elevated, the free spin before harsh engagement is not unusual. I am more concerned with the click however.If you elevate the front end and start the vehicle and place it in gear, can you still hear the click?
No. wheels span with no noIse. I'm thinking it has some thing to do the new springs. The cars sitting 2"lower on all four posts.
Thanks.I agree with you, this is where we were headed getting the springs extended.Check over your wheel well liners -very- carefully for any signs of rubbing. The plastic liners are known for rubbing even on stock suspension when they get loose; lowering the vehicle 2" could speed this up.Further, when you are braking the nose dives, bring it even lower... which fits in with you saying it is worse when braking.Check those liners out very carefully (remove the wheels if necessary) and look for anything out of place... loose/broken plastic or any "fresh" rub marks etc.Also make sure you don't have any wheel weights hitting the new struts too.Let me know what you find.Doug C41037.0079934838
So this is pretty embarassing, but I forgot to tighten the lug nuts on the left side. That was it. Dropped it down and put every one to 100lb the right way. Drove it around riding the brakes and slammong them on, reverse, sportslmatic transmission. Nothing. Just missed the last step. I appreciate it brother.
Oh my!Well better to find out taking the wheels off now than to find out when they come off on their own!I am glad it was nothing major, and we caught the culprit before any damage occurred.If you need assistance with anything down the road I'd be happy to work with you again, just let me know.
i've got a catback and headers in the mail so I'll probably be back
If you need anything, I'll be here.Thanks for using Just Answer!
