Question about 1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT

2 Answers

Trouble starting I have a 98 3000GT SL. When I turn my key the car tries to start but it sounds like it just can't. After a few long tries of turning the key it finally starts. This just happened recently. I thought it was just because it was really cold out but the problem continued. I think it might be the battery, spark plugs, possible the timeing belt or something idk. Please help.thx

Test the gas pressure regulator to see if it needs replaced. I have been having the same problem. I just had to replace the gas pressure regulator on my 98 3000GT and it is now starting just fine.

I would start with a good, charged battery first. Using a meter, measuring volts d/c, make sure you have at least 12.4v. If you do the you will have to see if you have that voltage at the starter. Also, check all connections at the starter, make sure they are clean and tight.

It sounds like you need a new starter. Your armature has few dead spots on it and every time you turn the key it moves just a little until you hit a good spot and then it spins and the car starts

Sound to me like you might be experiencing a security system failure. When the key is not communicating with the antitheft correctly, it will actually turn off injectors and/or your starter. Does a light show up on they dash that says "security" when this happens? That would be a good indicator of security failure. Read up on this link and see of your symptoms match the ones listed. If so, there are a few "do it yourself" solutions on that site.

IF your engine is turning but not starting, try the above link to my tip.
IF youre not even getting the engine to turn over, the click you hear, may be the starter trying to throw the gear out to engage the flywheel (sounds like "clunk"), or if is a rapid ("clicky-clicky') sound, that's you're starter relay under your hood in you're realy/fuse panel

Car will not start

What does your dip stick show? Was the plug tight? Unless you knocked something loose and the engine doesn't turn at all, it sounds like a no oil seize.
