Question about 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT

1 Answer

Brakes, i think

My husband has a 3000gt and he said that he bottomed out last week and he heard a pop sound and since then every time he brakes, the car makes this grinding sound. i think he needs new brakes, and I am guessing new rotors (I think that is what they are called, the silver things that are supposed to be smooth when you have new brakes on the car.) His emergency brake works fine, but not the normal pedal one... What exactly is wrong with it? I want to get it fixed, but my husband is out of town and I don't want to get screwed over at the auto shop. How much should this cost? And what do I say needs to be fixed?

If there is grinding sound you may need to replace the rotor and brake pads
in b/w 350 to 500 $ including the labor..

Good luck...

Check electric brake system light came on in 03' Jeep Grand Cherokee?

If you think that faulty brakes are OK then fine, keep driving it without looking to find the issue.
If you have ABS, suspect the ABS controller under the brake pump.

1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT starts, but the engine dies after anywhere from 5 to 60 seconds

You need to run an OBD2 fault code test with a code reader, that is the number one thing that must be done since this engine is computer controlled.

low oil pressure can be caused by worn oil pump or WORN BEARINGS!! The larger clearances reduce backpressure in system. Car may have 50K left in engine or less.

My car stopped driving all of a sudden i heard a little pop sound and then no drive reverse. i had it towed in and the mechanic just said he thinks it the syb frame eroded. does that have anything to do...

what the hell is a 'syb frame'? besides a little 'pop' sound, what else happened? Solution?.. Take it to a competent technician (Hyundai Technician).. .they you'll know what the problem 'ACTUALLY' is and what's needed to fix it (guaranteed repair).
