If your lights and horn work before trying to start and then everything shuts off and you hear the clicking noise odds are it's a loose battery connection or wires.

If you keep clicking and then the car starts after 20 tries it's the starter.

1999 3000gt with DOHV 3l. Running fine then sounds like no oil in engine on startup. Also exhaust smells like raw gas


Raw gas smell may be the culprit of starting noise. Leaky injector(s) could be causing some fuel to enter chambers as you shut off engine, washing oil off cylinder walls and diluting oil. Check fuel pressure key on/engine off and test for gas in the oil.

I have a 1991 mitsubishi 3000gt and it wont start. the motor turns but not sound of it even trying to start like turning over. i see the belts move but no sound as if its even starving for gas just belts...


http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7030578-engine_turns_over_but_wont_start

Here is a link to a tip I wrote nate. It sounds like your timing belt slipped a tooth or ten. Or it may be broken. Does the starter motor seem like its turning the motor much faster than it normally does? You say that you can see the external drive belts turning, if this is true then your starter is engaging correctly. If your timing is off, or belt is broken, the engine will not make compression. Put your hand over the intake while someone cranks it to see if you feel that intake stroke pull on your hand. Read my tip in the link above for lots more info.

Power antenna motor on my 3000gt is out and i need instructions


Access is behind the left hand panel in the hatch/trunk area. (Your car is left hand drive, correct? Not a GTO?) Only have to remove a few screws to get to it. Then a couple more bolts to remove the antenna motor. No, they cannot be rebuilt, and new ones from Mitsu are VERY expensive. You might want to buy a generic model from Advance, Auto Zone or NAPA.

Accelration only occurs at high rpms...and now car won't start


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.

Trouble starting


Test the gas pressure regulator to see if it needs replaced. I have been having the same problem. I just had to replace the gas pressure regulator on my 98 3000GT and it is now starting just fine.
