#171 of 333 Re: Mitsubishi 3000GT Headlights [gigem4499]
Mar 31, 2008 (2:02 pm)
I recently purchased one flip-up headlight for my 1992 3000GT for under $50, including shipping to my home, on eBay. A search for "3000GT headlight" turns up 53 results on eBay Motors for parts.
If you are just looking for the lens/light, it should be fairly easy. If you need the unit that the light mounts into, it may take a while and you will want to save one or more searches so eBay will notify you when it is available.
You might also want to consider obtaining a 3000GT manual on CD to help ID parts.
And 3si.org (http://www.3si.org/) is a very helpful community that you may wnat to join.
Good luck with your search.
#172 of 333 Mitsubishi 3000GT, oil light senser

Help, My oil light sensor is on. (Looks like an oil can in the dash). Started coming on and off a few weeks ago and now is in all the time. Oil pressure gage is showing good pressure. I bought a new electrical oil sensing switch but can not find where it goes on the engine. Can someone direct me? Do you think I am going in the right direction to solve this problem.

i just bought a 91 3000GT for 250 dollars and im having problems with the clutch. the clutch master cylinder cap isnt going on all the way, is there a ring or collar that fits around the cap. the clutch wont engage at all and i need help or a good picture of the clutch master cylinder cup.

I recently replaced my clutch master Cylinder. The new one has a white snap on plastic cap. I will send a picture to your e-mail address from my cell phone camera.
My car is a 95" 3000GT. In the last year I have replaced the clutch (aprox. $1700.00 I think) and recently the Clutch master cylinder. I have owed the car for 2 years and previously the clutch was grabing very high. Now it is working as it should.

I will need your e-mail to send a pic. However I am bot sure the cap will be causing your problem. When I bought my car the clutch was grabing high on the pedal stroke. eventualy the clutch started slipping when driving. The new cluch resolved that problem to the point I almost could not puss the pedal far enough to disengage to shift. The new Cluch master cylinder then solved my 2nd problem.
Your car not engaging could mean your clutch friction plate is wiped out.
If you have hydrolic fluid in the master I don't believe having the cover off should not matter for it to function.

I had a problem in which mine would just choke on rapid acceleration only. Turns out it was the ECU. This is a widely known problem on the older 3S cars. Do a search for guys who do ECu repairs. Check the DSM boards also those guys have done more mods and repairs than us 3S guys. its about a $150 fix. And my car ran like new afterwards.

The twin turbo models from the factory only came in manual transmission. Now someone could have upgraded your engine to twin turbo. Its been done before. You can look at the pics on my 3000gt VR4website and see what your engine bay looks like. If you are an NA (naturally aspirated) model you can still upgrade your intake and exhaust for some horsepower gains. Check with the guys at 3SX for those and other mods you can buy for your car. I met those guys at the 3S National Gathering and they are true 3S guys all the way.

Well the reason they were probably stolen as they are HID lights. That is also why they are very expensive. There are tons of 3S members in central Texas. I know I used to live in Oklahoma and have met many of them at the Texas club gatherings. Do a google search for the 3S Texas club. You can also check the boards at 3Si Forums to see if any one is parting out a 99 model.
If you are going on a tight budget maybe see if you can put in some regular ones from a 96 to 98 year model. They wont be HID and the power systems may not be compatible. If you join the 3si club local or national you can get discounts from many Mitsubishi dealerships around the country. You can find one out of state and they might not charge you sales tax. Good luck in your hunt.
