Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante

1 Answer

This is shannon with the 95 Mitsubishi diamante

Is it worth fixing a blown head gasget. And if so how do I go about finding out if that is the problem without spending a bunch of money? I have a baby on the way and I love the car but it fills up with smoke so I cant really carry a newborn in that car. I have to get it fixed or get a new car. Which do you think would be best if that is the problem??

The head gasket job I had to get for one of my cars, cost $1600! Once the repairs start coming... they don't stop! Get rid of the car as soon as you can.

In my experience (I've had a lot of used/older cars), it is much better to get a brand new car. There are affordable ones out there. Go for a dealer that offers rebates to use as down payments, and also a car that comes with a bumper to bumper warranty.

You also DO want "GAP" insurance! I've suffered the consequences for not getting it. It covers the full cost of the car, should there be an accident and your car is totalled. I was still making payments on my car that I no longer had, and the new car I bought, all because someone ran a red light in front of me. Auto repairs eventually broke me financially and resulted in a bankruptcy.

New cars are definitely the way to go. They are much more fuel efficient, They are safer, have great warranties, and the only thing you'll have to do is get gas and get your oil changes every 3 months.

How much will it cost to fix a blown head gasket in a 99 Mitsubishi eclipse?

By a licenced mechanic in a reputable shop, probably as much as the car is worth. Both gaskets need to be replaced and the cause for them to have blown also has to be determined and fixed.

1991 dimante is smooking from the exhaust I have changed the oil.

If it's white smoke you have a crack in the block or a blown head gasget. If it's bluish smoke you have worn or broken piston ring(s). If it only smokes for a short time after it has been sitting for hours or longer it's bad valve seals.

I have a 98 mitsubishi diamante that overheated now the car wont start and when i crank it it sounds like the timing is of it whines

Sounds like it may have blown a head gasket, and or craked/warped a cylinder hear or engine block. If possible, pull all six spark plugs and look for evidence of engine coolant on the electrode.

Blown head gasket. what is the cause? there is very high pressure in the radiator and eventually a lot of air and little coolant. it then starts over heating because all the coolant gets pushed out at the...

Running hot will cause head gasget to fail. Or if head is not torqued properly, or a faulty head gasget. Pressure in cooling system means, blown head gasget or cracked head.

SMOKE! Lots of oil gone!

At just about any auto part store, you can buy a bottle of "stop leak". There are a few different brands. Make sure the one you get is for oil.(they make it for radiators and transmissions, etc also...) You just pour it in where your oil goes, and it will help plug up any areas that the oil is leaking from. If it still persists, then you could have a much more serious problem on your hands. (also make sure your oil is not already topped off, when you go to try and pour the stop leak bottle in there! it will over flow)

Note: Your car may continue to smoke for a while, until it has finished burning off any oil that had already leaked out.
