Oh my gawd, lol. Clean the screen and probably replace head gasket. Have head checked for flatness when removed because these Mitsubishi engines love to warp the heads when baked. Might as well pull the engine and work on it that way. Just go through and look for problems.

90% clogged? with what? I would think the filter would of caught the crap instead of the screen. Did you have the car at a mechanic lately, where they possibly could of done something to provoke that clog? . I have never heard one of them screens clogged up like that, EVER!

SOURCE: 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante is overheating. Oil

the symptoms are that you have a burnt head gasket, its consuming the water into the cylinders and at the same time it builds combustion pressure in the cooling system causing it to overheat, and when it overheats it makes the oil loose viscosity so you loose oil pressure, i recommend not driving the car any more and the first solution is to replace the burnt gasket, and change your oil, go to a local shop and only do these they probably tell you the engine is worn but the problem is what i told you above, make them replace the thermostat unit yes to be sure good luck

Metal noise coming from the engine, but engine still runs

I wouldn't drive it till you find the problem. It could be almost anything? Check oil pressure. If you think the noise is internal engine and comes from bottom of engine, check for metal in the oil pan, metal in the oil pan is not a good sign. Don't drive it.

I hit a rock on the front end of my Subaru Legacy 1993. I pierced the oil pan, not much else has little scraps on it. i live no more than 10 miles away from where this happened so i put gum over the hole...

in the oil pan(sump) there is an oil pick up pipe and a filter on the end of it. The pan being damaged the oil pick up was probably bent and hitting on the big ends or the balance of the crank shaft. have the pan pulled and check for damage on the oil pipe and pick up filter. Replace the pipe and filter as they will be cracked or fractured and in future will break and the pump will run out of oil.==engine failure.

That looks like a 2.7 liter. Is there oil in it? The first thing I would do is remove the serpentine belt and make sure the noise is coming from the engine and not an accessory. If the noise goes away with the belt removed than spin the pulleys by hand to see which one is making the noise. If the noise is the same with the belt removed than...... These engines have an issue with the oil pickup tube being to close to the bottom of the oil pan. Over time, sooner with less than normal service, the oil will start to sludge and this accumulates on the bottom of the pan. Eventually this will block the pickup tube and starve the engine of oil. Your best bet is to find a good used engine with low miles from a reputable source.

With that many miles on the engine it could be sludged up or the oil pump could be failing.

I have a very loud noise coming from the engine and my oil gauge has now stopped working and just lays over to the L

Sounds potentially terminal. Check your oil level on the dip stick. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle if you suspect loss of oil, best to have it towed in neutral. Check that the engine is first OK: drain out the oil and remove the pan/sump from the bottom of the engine. Check pan interior for any debris. Look at crank, connecting rods, big end and main bearing shells.

Do you have a loss of power or overheating? Listen under the front of your vehicle. If you hear a rattle or a knocking noise coming from your oil pan it would be your bottom end "rod bearings". Probably cheaper to replace the engine than it is to have the crank turned or replaced.

Better have someone diagnose it, if you're going to a shop you better tow it.

Tapping in engine

it sounds like the oil pressure is too high.have someone check for clogged blow-by hoses or connections.some blow-by connections have screens in them tha can become clogged with dust or oil deposits.also check for places where dust can enter into the engine,such as,air filters and air hoses that may be loose or damaged.
