Question about Mitsubishi Diamante
I have a 2001 mitsubishi diamante. i had the oil changed and it was running fine. Then it shut off while I was driving. When my husband looked at it they didnt tighten the oil filter tight enough and the oil leaked out.Is the engine a goner or can we save it?

well it wont be the oil pan seal then cause they never leaked that much. I would go back and look at the filter he put on. could be just a problem with it. for the cost of one put another one on and make sure the gasket surfacce is clean down to the metal engine block.

Has this symptom occured several times or just a one off? If the trans works OK I wouldn't mess with it.You know what they say about sleeping dogs! I think Mitsis are not that strong in the auto trans department

If anyone else has this problem, I'm betting its your oil filter adapter gasket. Of course check to see if the problem is just a bad oil filter seal but mine was not. The oil filter adapter is like 10 - $15 at Auto Zone or Napa. If you feel you can't do the job yourself then take it to the auto repair shop. It's only four bolts and change out the gasket but you must drain the coolant cause the water run through the same housing and it's kind of a pain to get to on the vehicle. Napa gasket p/n is 70801
