Hi I'm Peter, What kind of transmission oil did you use? According to what I have found from a Mitsubishi Master tech , here is his response and I have to believe it. As a Master tech myself my wife had a Galant and I was so glad the day it was totaled in a wreck. I had to change brake pads on that car at 17K miles. A brand new freaking car not even broke in and already having repairs. But back to you DO NOT drive it any more. I would drain it and hope I didn't find chunks of anything. Anyway here is what he said....I've been a tech for a long time and I've never seen more problems with vehicles using supposedly equivalent ATF than with Mitsubishi. I don't care what the bottle says, use only Mitsu SP4 in your vehicle or you will have issues. There are special friction modifiers that adhere to the torque converter clutch (and all the clutches for that matter) and without them you will have noticeably reduced smoothness. It won't "blow up" your transmission, it just won't shift or run like it should. Spend the extra bucks and get the mitsu fluid

SOURCE: I have a 94TR magna 4cyl 5 speed manual clutch pedal problem

prob has little to no clutch fluid, to check this open the bonnet, in the engine bay next to the brake master cylinder there is a round clutch master cylinder, unscrew the cap and topp it up with brake fluid.
If the system has run dry you may need to bleed the system, if not completly empty should be able to pump it a few times and will come good.
If this is the case there is a leak somewhere...

SOURCE: Mitsubishi 3L V6 engine knocking.

The knocking noise has to be a deep knocking noise if its the crank bearings . If the oil is very gooey the oil was never changed properly at the mileage or months as required. Also if the oil is thick as you state it must have 15,000 miles or more on this oil. 10,000 miles the oil will still be thin if never overheated. I suggest this engine be completely disassembled and inspected if you plan to keep it. You will find wear to more to it especially the cam shaft, lifters, rocker arm as so on. for the oil never lubricated the engine enough to save this engine

Could be a shift solenoid gone bad, causing it to go into "limp mode".

Without a transmission technician to verify, it's kinda guesswork, but I've seen this exact problem before. In fact, I've had it happen to my wife's T & C van. If you're willing to gamble around $175, you can put it on yourself, as it's external to the transmission case.

Go to your local library and check out a vehicle specific repair manual for Chrysler Corp. transmission. It should fully outline what to do.

Auto Transmission problem

hi do the simple bits first check the fliud level in the box see if its a clear redish colour if any other colour you have a box problem second when was the last time you chaged the boxes oil and filter a blocked filter will cause your problem then the box itself first clutch could be slipping put the box in first gear chock your wheels up put the handbrake on put your foot on the brake pedal start the engine and rev with your other foot and see when the car stalls it should be around 2500 and 3000 revs if its higher than this the clutch is slipping on that gear after this you will need to take it for pressure testing yates210456
