Question about Mitsubishi Diamante
I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante. I had the oil change and the car was running fine. Then it just shut off. When my husband looked at it he noticed they didnt tighten the oil filter tight enough and the oil leaked out. Is the engine a goner or can we save it.
You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, it is the first step to diagnose the problem.

does it turn over at all? Or does starter just click? Oil may have dripped on wiring or in solenoid. If starter and motor turn over fine but won't start than I don't think the problem is related and it is just a coincidence. If you have lost all of your oil while driving, than it means your motor is seized and you will have to put in more oil and use a prybar and socket and turn the motor over manually by crankshaft pulley to break the piston loose

Check your ATF cooling system. Your transmission fluid is overheating. This might be after a hard drive. The fluid might need to be replaced too.

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
