I have a 1992 3000GT which is in great shape. Lately when I start her up she runs real rough and stutters on take off. After awhile running everything returns to normal. CEL is not on and has new ECU. I can tell I soon as I start her up if its going to run smooth or not. Any one have the same problem or know what might be the cause? Thanks for any input.

Just curious, why you put a new ECU in it. Are you supping it up?

My 95' Mits 3000GT will not start two, three , maybe four times a week. Wait 10 minutes and she starts right up. over the last 4 years I have put an rebuilt engine in her,(water pump went bad, blew the engine) Battery cables, Battery, Alternator, clutch, clutch cylinder, radiator and hoses, brakes and more. She runs and looks great. I have had it to a few mechanics, the last fixing a ground. However the problem persists. Has anyone had a issue like mine? What was the fix.

it can be many things.. try doing a whole tune up starting from plugs wires (make sure to gap the plugs correctly) and air filter. while you're there, check for any restrictions that the intake might have, clean the throtle body inside and out, and you should notice a difference. If you still have the same problem then check the MAF sensor cause it might be going bad on you but I really doubt it

well 300 bucks is hell cheap man!! I say you buy it if you dont have the money for a better one (stick ) dont worry about making power right now, make sure you take care of all the problems that the car might have first and make sure that the reg maintance of the car has been done (timing belt, plugs, wires, etc) you'll get the power later cause a healthy 3000gt has no problems giving it to you. DOCH engines can be modified really easy even if they're automatic. anyways, good luck with the car and enjoy it!

let it warm up for a while when you first start the engine, it should go away after a few mins, if not, you can give it gas, first take it to 1000 then to 1500 for about 10 seconds then let it go. you really shouldnt go as far as 8k cause it could damage the engine. if this doesnt work for you then I'd get, either a less thicker oil and go synthetic

there's many.. the vr4 comes with factory twin turbos making about 320hp and putting them on the four wheels which make a hell of a fast car!! sl model has the same engine but has a FWD transmission and no turbos still makes about 210hp and could look exactly the same as the vr4
