Question mitsubishi

hey guys i know this is a ranger forum but all the Mitsubishi forums suck! (GO FORD GUYS!) - so i have a few questions from a friend:
he has a 2003 Mitsubishi eclipse and it doesn't accelerate smoothly and runs rough, jerky at higher speeds.
any thoughts?
also wondering how to check tranny fluid level?
im a Ford guy so im not familiar with this thing...
any help (especially pictures) would be awesome!

Plugs, wires, clean throttle body, check compression ratio, get it scanned in general.

clogged cats will do that to you, or a malfunctioning 02 sensor will mess with your fuel mixture. Did your friend get his car scanned for codes?

bring it to autozone or some where similar and ask them to scan for codes. Even if the check engine light is off, there could still be codes stored.
