tighten rearview mirror?

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From reds9 on tighten rearview mirror?

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder convertible, mirror attaches to windshield.

Have a bluetooth rearview mirror which attaches to the existing mirror but too heavy and weighs it down and causes it to tilt. Any way to tighten??? Thanks for any help.

Also, same problem on 2007 Pontiac Solstice convertible.

Response From Hammer Time

There really isn't much your going to do there. They are designed as a ball in a socket and engineered with a predetermined amount of tension that is not designed to be adjustable at all.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

LOL - the days of adjustable tention on the ball sockets of rear view mirrors ended about 40 years ago. Been there - done that got the T shirt!

please help water trough intake

Showing 2 out of 14 Posts | Show 12 Hidden Posts
Question From inmedude627 on please help water trough intake

my car sucked water trough intake then there was white smoke out of the exaust and then it stoped when i started the car it was blowing black smoke so i replaced the spark plugs but still has the black smoke also at low rpms it stalls but at hig rpms works normal and runs good
my car is an mitsubishi eclipse 1995 2.0L DOCH that is the 420A n/t

Response From dave284

Black smoke means the vehicle is burning very rich fuel mixture...please explain a little more on the water thing with the intake...was the car alright before this happened?

Response From inmedude627 Top Rated Answer

also the water thing is that it was raining and the car kind of sucked water and it start staling and when i looked in the rear view mirror i saw white smoke so i turned the car off and then started back on and it wasnt blowing white smoke but it was stalling

Response From Tom Greenleaf


Oh Oh!! Lot's of things won't like the water trick! Just how deep was the car when it sucked in water? Who knows what got wet that should stay dry. You saw the white smoke and that's bad enough if the engine didn't just blow you are lucky so far.

All air intake items need to be removed, dried, and air filter probably replaced as I'm unsure if it will dry out ok. It may be choking on it's own air filter and other items that are still wet. How long has it been?

T

Response From inmedude627

it has been just one day im waiting till monday to go to a repair station

Response From inmedude627

also the air filter wasnt submerged in water it was the rain

Response From Tom Greenleaf

That's still about the same. If water made it far enough to get into cylinders then it passed thru the air filter - right?

T

Response From inmedude627

well yes i think so but the car still rus great the only thing is that in low rpms uit stall but keeps around 500 to 700 rpms

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Everything suggest that liquid water actually made it into the intake. Filter being wet would screw things up by itself. Other controls in line of air flow may have been damaged. If more water had really been drawn in it would have been a fast "game over" for this engine! The snorkeling of the path of air may still have water. If you can - I'd take things from port where air enters to throttle body apart and dry them out at least for now,

T

Response From Guest

ok thank but can u explai why the car runs normal at high rpms?
and not at low ones

Response From inmedude627

sorry i post as a guest newbie

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just quickly re-read. You said the water was from it raining. That alone doesn't suck in water and blow white exhaust out unless it was really intense or splashing water or water on roadway too deep for travel.

You said you just looked in your rear view and saw white smoke. That could have been water on hot exhaust parts and not water sucked into engine but still seems to have been the cause of the problems now.

The fact that it can run at high rpms is a good thing so far. It's hard to say much more as I wasn't there when this happened to witness the severity of it. You simply must verify the air path is dry now - including the air filter or there's no guessing which is the best I can do with this anyway as this is not a routine problem!?

T

Response From inmedude627

ok man thank you so much i will take the car to a repair shop to see whats the problem thanks again!!!!!!

Response From inmedude627

yes everything was right the air fuel mixture only run rich in wot now it says its lean but its burnig too much fuel so at low rpms the car starts to stall and shake a lot

Help with engine heating...

Question From Guest on Help with engine heating...

My '98 Mitsubishi Eclispse is over heating and has an empty coolant reservoir. I took it to a local auto repair center and he told me that the anti freeze sockets are worn and need to be replaced. He told me that it costs be about 1200$ for that.

Can anybody tell me if that price sounds reasonable???

Also, when I took it to the other store, he pressure checked the radiator and told me that there are no leaks. Can anybody tell me if the pressure check reveals any leaks through the anti-freeze sockets???

Thanks.

Response From Tom Greenleaf


What in the heck are anti-freeze sockets? There are core plugs that are frequently called freeze plugs and tough to do them all. Just my opinion but $1200 seems way to high. Keep the system full till you get this taken care of, T

Response From Guest

Sorry for the wrong terminology... they are Expansion/Freeze plugs. Does these cause a leak in the coolant system that cannot be deetermined by the pressure check?

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Ok: You found the coolant reservoir empty after an overheat. If that bottle wasn't noticed right away it could have spit up coolant with no evidence. Those bottle can also have leaks and would eventually leave you with a less than full radiator.

You mentioned a pressure test found no leaks. There would be evidence somewhere unless your engine is burning it which they can and if bad enough you would notice white fog out the exhaust suggesting a head gasket. radiator must be kept full at the radiator first then the recovery/reservior tank to proper level.

Hard to say now what came first an overheat from several possibilities or an overheat from low coolant?

Coolant leaks will leave evidence and sometimes you need mirrors to see in tight spots. They make telescopic little mirrors just for this and check the bottom of the water pump.

It's possible that a "freeze" plug has rusted and leaks but this shouldn't be guessing it should be seen and if the engine has to come out but it seems early for this for a 1998.

I think you should seek out another opinoin or ask the shop to show you just what the problem is, Good luck, T

Response From Guest

well it seems funny ya can likely by a rebuilt motor for thet price lol what ever they wish to call them the soft plugs could well be bad but I' check the water pump first if you live in an area of high salt during winter soft plugs are common but its more likely the water pump bearing is just wore out or leaking look for discoloration around the water pump from the steam cooling the steam is hard to see but the discoloration is usually visible look for water leaks

Response From Tom Greenleaf

The term is core plugs. It's been since the early 1900's since they were for freeze protection. YES they can rust and leak coolant. They are dirt cheap but can be nasty work to replace. I'm probably wrong but I have just replaced bad one and not just all of them and have gotten away with that my whole life, T

The volume knob acts as a choice between time and radio station. It is a coventional rotary switch that you have to push in to engage a momentary contact switch for changing between time or radio station display. I can not find a replacement for that switch anywhere. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Response From Sidom

I'm not sure if you are looking for just the knob or the whole switch itself but either way. For the stereo you aren't going to find a place the just sells pieces for it.

If you just lost the knob the best place would be a wrecking yard. If you are having issues where you think you need the whole switch, it would be easier to replace the whole unit.....

Iam looking for the switch asm. Er, I thought this was a repair forum, not a swap forum. Sorry.

Response From Sidom

Good luck trying to find the switch......

Response From timhere1

I have attached the link for the switch I need. I just don't need 1000 pieces to fulfill the minimum. For those that rather repair vs. swap the host to the link has a search function for automotive and motorcycle switches the world over. Yeah Spanky, er Sidom, er .../veteren, you can take the fly off the wall because I am watching you now.

Here is a link for the data sheet for the same audio switch for those that rather repair than swap. It has the momentary switch option and the option for varied lengths of the shaft. I hope this helps true audio buffs.

Timmy.....This is an automotive fourm.....AUTOMOTIVE......If you have the knowledge & the skill to go in and repair either automotive or home electronics then good for you. Most people don't have those skills just like most people don't have the skills for advanced auto repair.

If you think the general population....most auto techs included...have the correct soldering and diagnosis skills to go in an repair those kind of electronics then you are truly clueless.

You know I don't know what set you off other then maybe you are just a total jackass like your post to me would suggest.....I gave you an honest answer to an automotive related problem and you come back with attitude...

Go out in the automotive world....not electronic repair world....automotive world and try to find that switch....go to the dealer....part stores....online auto parts houses .....& find that switch Timmy.....

I guess next you will be looking for surgical or legal advise here and come back and be a jerk when you can't find that.......

You know something Timmy.....Any forum...no matter what subject it covers has people who have knowledge in that area helping other people who need help and they are doing for free donating their time & experience to help other and it's jerks like you cominng in to these forums, giving them a rash a crap for no reason that burns them out and makes them say "Why am I even wasting my time here when it's not appreciated" and you wind up ruining it for a lot of people who do need the help and would appreciate it.....

But you know....I already know your answer........You don't care...... I know timmy..... you don't care if you mess it up for a lot of other people because it doesn't affect your little world.....

Timmy you are a small self-centered little person.........Who later on down the road when looking for free help will have no clue to where the free help went........when all you have to do is look in the mirror......Its jerks like you & your attitude that killed it for everyone.......

Thank you for your reply and especially for yours and all others who have served the USA. Text does not reflect tongue and cheek well. The title of the forum is Car Stereo Repair. I understand I may be eccentric, I own a '63 Studebaker Avanti with all original parts. I was new to the forum and have not followed it to know that repairs here do not go to the component level. Most switches are not hard to replace and I hope someone gets help from those links. I was just funning with you and it will not discourage me from helping anyone in anyway I can, including you, my friend.

Response From Sidom

Well you are right that tones can't be percieve online very well short of caps for yelling.
I suppose the title can be decieving but it's mainly for figuring out if you have speaker problems, wire problems, deck problems, or lock out issues. For a while there was a couple of professional stereo installers that would come into this section and those with the skills & desire would get that kind of info but for now there is just auto techs minding the store and due to labor cost these days there really isn't any components on vehicles that get rebuilt anymore it's all pretty much R&R as side from the drivetrain

Most people don't have the skills to remove & open up a deck, desolder a switch and solder in a new one, while getting the correct wires to the correct poles. No offense to any one coming here but with some it's a challenge just to get the fuses tested & basic wiring tested....

My apologies to Sidom, the moderator and the forum. Sidom is dead on. Hardly anything can be repaired anymore. It is called designed obsolescence. That is why our landfills are full. The switch for the radios for the Avengers and Mitsubishis from these years can be found on a web search for “Bourns rotary encoder switch.” A host named “Alliedelec” can be found that has multiple switches and so does “Mouser.” Local community colleges with electronics programs my have teachers that will give extra credit to students that will solder for you. It may be the only paying job they get for years to come. Sidom was also dead on about the expense of repairing anything these days. Now that I understand the forum, I hope I am welcome back. Signed, Spanky.

Piece work repair is really becoming a lost art. When I got in this business 30 some years ago pretty much everything got rebuilt. Whether it was an alternator, starter, caliper, wh cyl, etc. If it wasn't blown up then it got rebuilt. I have so many tools in my box that were designed for rebuilding that is just sitting there collecting dust now. It was probably 10 years ago when I rebuilt my last caliper and that was just because it was late at night the new caliper was defective, the car had to go and by some miracle they had a rebuild kit in stock, then while I'm rebuilding it there is 3 younger techs just standing there watching me....like it was some kind of show......geeez..it was just kitting a caliper....

Rising labor costs really factor in to this but there is also a skill level as well. While it's not brain surgery, you would have to agree that the skill to do repair work to an electronic unit or overhaul a hydraulic unit would need to be a little higher than that if you where just going to have someone r&r that unit. If those 2 factors aren't enough, then throw in the way the whole customer base for any area has move to. It seems in these times everyone is sue happy and no one wants to take responsibility for there own actions when it's easier to put it on someone else and maybe even make a little money in the process. I've seen it go from shops trying to help someone out who was strapped for cash by jury rigging a repair just to get them by with the understanding it was a gamble and if it didn't work, then we took a shot but it didn't fly. To now if you were to try that not only would you have to refund the original charge for the gamble but now you are also on the hook for fixing the way it should've of been down in the 1st place.

You see some posts here, where people say you use to be able to go into a shop and find a guy who could patch it together for you with some duct tape, coat hanger & a hersey bar until pay day but they can't find those shops any more...... Those guys are still out there & do it to their car or friends car until it can be fixed correctly but no one is crazy enough to do it to a customers car they don't know. Every tech, service writer & service manager out there knows full well what is going to happen. That $20 or $40 patch job to get the customer by until payday is going to wind up costing the shop $800 and a customer. And its not just in the auto repair industry, if you ever take a look at some of the warning they post on some of the products these days, its just ridiculous be it not to hold that cup of coffee between your legs or don't hold your gun in your mouth by the barrel while looking for a smoke it seems common sense is out the window & companies are on the hook for everything....

All these little warning & other steps to protect companies do have a cost and as we all know, those costs get passed on. So in reality, the public has a lot to do with how these companies do business and what is an acceptable risk and what just isn't worth the gamble anymore......

We may have gotten off on the wrong foot but that happens, tones & attitude can be misinterpreted online when you can't see the person. But no harm no foul all is good.....
