Question about 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT

Engine Light goes on then clicking under dashboard -- engine stalls

This problem just suddenly started happening. The car can run and be driven for several hours or sometimes only for a few seconds. It doesnt matter if you are idling or at freeway speed, the engine light goes on, the car starts to run rough and this clicking (like an electrical short) can be heard under the dashboard. I pulled the radio out and traced the sound to the area where the door alarm is located (ie. door is open when key is in the ignition). Do you have any ideas?

Could simply be your battery is about to die and the voltage is getting too low.
if the engine light is going on then take it to a mitsubishi dealer and they can read the stored error code.

Periodically, EPS comes on Dashboard ,then steering becomes too hard, this will disappear two to three times re start the vehicle or running few meters and switch off the car and re start the car.


well I can't drive it and see all symptoms.
i can't see the idle speed drop below 800 RPM,. !
if the idle drops real low, then engine shakes, and PS gets weaker.
Id ignore the EPS till such time as all other things are perfect.
ever get an engine tuneup this decade?
low engine RPM , top number 1 cause is owners not servicing their cars. (spark plugs bad tops that list)
if you ignore that, tuneup the engine WILL misfire and RPM will drop and P/s (means power steering)will get weak (the assist is pump driven) and then the engine can stall.
i bet you also forgot to say the steering got weak
park or coming to a stop with foot off throttle.
do the head lights dim as this (bad) happens?
can you use your right foot to keep RPM above 800 and save stalls or near stalls?
IF RPM is ok, ?then check the fan belt next. (slips)
or buy a new on, my guess is 11 year old belt is kinda hopeless case.

Occasional Sudden smoke from under rear-passenger door (in breather)


This is the Diesel Cabin Heater. It will only come on when it is cold and comes on automatically when you start the car. If you do a short journey you will often see smoke coming out and occasionally hear some noise. It can continue to run for a few minutes. There are no controls for it but you will see a yellow light on the dashboard next to the right hand indicator light. It will only operate if it is cold and you have more than 100-120 miles of fuel left in the tank.

Under steady acceleration, engine light goes on


Being a 95 it dosent have OBD2 so it may not store a trouble code in the computer.
From the symptoms it sounds like either, Air flow sensor, O2 sensor
The O2 will not usually cause stalling under acceleration.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

2003 civic intermittent stall


I think you may have either a battery cable issue or more likely a ignition switch problem, most Japanese cars use the same design switch and I have seen the issue on other cars.
