2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt rattles over bumps at low speeds

\015 Can be heard while driving from driver's side most clearly; mechanics cannot find the rattle with a shake down; could it be strut bushings?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Check for a cracked engine mount. I had to replace mine about six weeks ago.
You could have bad mounting bushings for the struts or it could be other bushings in the rear axle tracking arms. in order to find out you have to jack the vehicle up.(use jack stands to support the vehicle for safety) check all the struts and shocks and any componant that has to do with keeping the wheels on the ground . that is what the strut/shock is for. check the coils spring to make sure they are not loose. the coils spring keeps the body from bottomning out... hope this helps..........please rate.

My 1995 Toyota Corrolla spedomter only works at highway speeds (50 MPH). The needle stays at 0 MPH below 45 MPH. I had my mechanic check the speed sensor and that is fine. Any idea what is causing it to stop working at low speeds?


The speedo is of course electronic, it either has a defective circuit board or the tiny motor that moves the needle is defective. You will need to remove the cluster from the car and send it out to a factory repair center. ... 1995 Toyota Corolla

I just bought a used 2007, Nissan 350Z Roadster. The front of the car seems to be very low and every time I drive over a high speed bump, the bottom of the car hits the bump hard. This is very annoying. I almost have to stop and drive over the bump very slow in an angle almost. Do I need new shock absorbers and new spring coils in the front??

TCL Problem? I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Diamante. The Traction Control is acting up. It mostly says the TCL is off. However the problem has been gradually getting worse. It has now started to shift from Drive to neutral. Back in forth at low speeds and has NO power. Barely crawls up to speed. At higher speeds it's good. I am pretty good with cars, but not so much on the traction control because I hate it anyways, lol. Would cleaning the sensors help the problem. Is it brake dust build up or do

On my 2009 Honda crvI have a dull rattle when driving 40 to 60 km per hour on a rough road or course gravel. Not there when on a road with large bumps or potholes and do not hear at higher speeds. It is not a tinny rattle, more like a clunky rattle which seems to be more towards the passenger side. Dealer will not help and I have removed all shields underneath as well as running boards to no avail

2005 Buick Terraza: "Service stability system" comes on seemingly at random at various speeds. At low speed a definite bump is felt as the system engages.At highway speeds no difference in car performance except the cruise control disengages (as I would expect). Always, shutting down the engine and then restarting it apparently resets the system and the warning signal disappears. Does running the car with this condition render it unsafe? Does its coupling with the ABS defeat the effectiveness


I have a 2005 Terraza CX with a similar issue. Completely at random my abs/stability/traction service lights flash on. My mechanic changed the wheel hub assembly (I heard they were problematic so I got him to change all four with aftermarket upgraded ... Buick Terraza
