Question about 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT

2 Answers

Should I test drive a car that has just been sitting for 2 years?

I just bought a 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT Non-Turbo Base Coupe with 136,000 miles on it for $1,200. The car has been sitting in the seller's garage for over a year and half and rarely started or driven during that time. "When I pick the car up, I'd like to drive it around the block to make sure the manual transmission shifts right and to listen to the engine before I pay the remaining balance." "Could I damage the vehicle in doing this, being that it has the same fuel, oil and other fluids from nearly two years ago?" Not to mention, that the tires are dry rotted and the battery is dead. It will start with a jump though. If it checks out, I'll haul it home on a trailer and fix it up. Thanks.

94 Mitsubishi 3000gt non turbo where is the wiper motor relay


Why not pick up a Haynes car manual for your 3000GT at your local auto parts store. It will have the whole wiring schematic for your car in it. I believe that there isn't any relay, only a positional switch which may be your problem.

Specifications


The base convertible had a 4.1L V-6
The base coupe had a 3.8L V-6
The S coupe had a 5.7L V-8
The T type coupe Had a 3.8L V-6

These engines were listed to have between 110hp and 250hp depending on the Vin code and model.
the 3.8L non-turbo V-6 was listed at 125hp in the Base coupe and 140hp in the T coupe.While the turbo charged was stated at 225hp.

So if you can get more details and post back,I can provide better info for you.
