2006 Mitsubishi eclipse gs engine knock

Asked by Mar 30, 2017 at 12:30 PM about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 06 auto eclipse, stock everything for
now. A couple days ago the oil light came on and a
night ago the engine started knocking, it would be
quiet but as I accelerate and the car goes past
about 3000 rpm the knocking starts. Then today it
completely cuts off on me. What could be going
on?

Have you checked the engine oil level to see if there is any oil in it?

It was pretty low but I ended up putting three quarts of some 5w-30 just to see if there would be some kind of change but the knocking continues.

Knocking is not a good sign, may be a rod knock. You may want to check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to see where its at. But the knock is there and needs to be determined if it is a rod knock. If it is then you can rebuild and put your turbos on.
