It's tough to diagnose a car reading just a few lines online. First off you need to check if your fans were not working which cause the overheating. If you overheated the car to the point where the needle reached the red zone, you most likely have a bent head (since our heads are aluminum) and need to be heated back into shape at a shop. You might not be able to initially start the car due to the "coolant temp sensor" being messed up by this. Change out the thermostat too since that is a cheap replacement. You will also need to check to see if you blew your head gasket. You can check by leaving the radiator cap off and filling the coolant to the top. Then starting the car and see if the coolant starts bubbling and starts to decrease in volume. Depending on how much was involved in the damage, it may not be worth fixing this. I spent a fortune. Hope this helps!

94 3000gt problems


Could be such a multitude of things.Good news is for that problem 90% chance it is very minor but usually not cheap(small sensors cost a lot).You have to take it to an auto parts store for a FREE diagnostic check. Takes 5 min. and will tell you what sensor,ECU etc... is bad and would cause your particular problem.Spend your $ ONLY on what is causing your actual problem and if another part checks out bad but is causing no problem do not waste your $ on replacing it.BE WISE BEWARE and use common sense.

Electrical Problem 1997 3000GT Base Model


What a great, thorough description! Other than random, total battery drain I don't see a failure history including any blown fuses or parts replacement. I did not find any factory service bulletins pertaining to the symptom. If the problem is a short circuit, it would have to be pretty serious to drain the battery. Have you eliminated a failing starter as a suspect? How about cruise control? Some automobiles can kill a battery if certain things are left on after shutdown, such as defrosters or other things that draw a lot of current normally.

3000gt leaks coolant from the middle of the engine and transmission


I hope this isn't the case as it has happened to me. While the car is COOL. Open up the radiator cap and fill up the coolant to the top. Leave the cap off and start the car. While the car warms up, if it starts bubbling up and visually losing coolant level, your problem is most likely a head gasket. This would require a rebuild. And if you've overheated the car a few times, most likely they need to put your heads in an oven to shape it back. Good luck and I hope this helps!

Where is the thermostat on a 3000gt


The mechanical water thermostat on the 3000gt is right under the metal water cap just to the left of the engine and next to the spark plug wires. The cap will have a warning about not opening if the car is hot as the water is pressurize and can spray out. If you want to replace the thermostat I recomend you use a genuine Mitsu thermostat. I beleive all years, base,SL and VR4 are the same but have a look at mentor mitsubishi http://www.trademotion.com/partlocator/index.cfm?siteid=213934&year=1993 for the right part and useful images. They also have a good discount price. Select your year, then make and model and look under COOLING SYSTEM->COOLING SYSTEM->THERMOSTAT.
Another useful place to look for 300gt information is 3si.org and stealth316.com
Replacing the thermostat you will lose some coolant so be prepared to catch it and top it back up afterwards. You will also need the rubber gasket that goes around the thermostat if your's is old.
