The best battery is the biggest one that you can fit in the battery box. There is no such thing as too much battery. The one that came in your car from the factory is the smallest one they could get to do the job. Certainly you should be in the 500 CCA (cold cranking amps) range, especially if you live in a cold climate. Hope this helps.

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

Oil leak, where could it be


the most common oil leak on the V6 is the oil pump drive gear, it is at the back of the engine under the throttle body, it is were if the engine had a distributor were you would look for the distributor, there is an o-ring on the gear housing that starts to leak and can make a very big leak because the housing is under direct oil pump pressure.

Its actually a B1500 3.9 v6 my question is on the oil guage its at about 30 when i start driving it go to about 100 but when i stop it go back to 30 is this normal


Yes, this is normal what is going on is that your oil pump is not spinning as fast. your pump runs off the motor and the fast the motor goes ( rmp ) the fast the pump spins and pumps. the motor dose not need as much at low rmp as high rpm. look up toroidal oil pump.

No oil pressure, camshaft position sensor error,


Yes, the sensor is in small housing the goes in the hole where the distributor used to go. That also drives the oil pump so don't drive it you'll ruin the engine. It's located down under the throttle body, near transmission end of the engine.
