My 3000gt does not start. it does not even crank. it kind of makes this clicking noise. the battery is good. My clutch is also bad, but would that have anything to do with it not starting? The clutch went and i let the car sit for about 2weeks, and started it everyday to let it run, but then one day it just did not start. HELP!!!

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through clutch switch, I haven't looked up info on your clutch switch. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is out of gear and parking brake is set.
You can check the starter itself, take it off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from battery to starter motor, at the least, it should kick out the drive gear and spin.
If the battery is in good shape with a full charge, and all that happens is a click when trying to start, suspect a battery cable issue. Make sure the cables are clean and tight at the battery as well a tight at the starter. Make sure the ground cable from the battery to the engine is clean and tight supplying a good ground as well
Are you sure the clutch disc is installed in the correct direction? Admittedly, I haven't seen the clutch disc for a Mitsubishi 3000GT, but I have seen my share in many makes of vehicles.
The clutch disc may be one of those that will install in either direction. Some clutch discs are made so that the inner hub with springs, can be installed towards the crankshaft, or towards the tranny.
if the problem is when u go into gears it could be the clutch is going out. when it slips i can cause reduction like that. after you accelerate the clutch has time to engage and will provide power. the clicking sound is something diffrent. try charging the battery not just jumping it. if the car doing the jumping is not providing the right amount of power it wont start.
