#70 of 336 Shredded Serp. Belt, Crank Pulley has play, Need imput or pionters.PLEASE!
Dec 22, 2006 (10:16 am)
OVERVIEW: I have a 1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT with a DOHC V6 and a 5 spd manual transmition. I noticed my car started running a little ruff, check engine light came on and my battery gaudge showed, if i ran my heater while my headlights are on and come to a stop/idlle, the battery gaudge will drop considerabley and my lights dim. Ofcourse,1 if its day time, heater can be ran without dechargeing the battery. I noticed the crank pulley has some in and out movement to it. Is it supposed to do that? So then this morning 1 of my 2 Serp. belts shredds off and now long shraplings of my belt are wedged inbetween my block and the pullies.
QUESTIONS: How can I get that belt out and are there and tricks to putting the belts back in. Could I have possible engine damage judgeing by the play in the crank pulley? Someone please help me!!
#71 of 336 Big PROBLEM w/clutch
Dec 28, 2006 (6:55 am)
Hello all! I'm new to the forum. My big problem led me to seek help. My '93 3000GT (base, manual) won't move when put in gear. It all started one morning when I was driving my son to pre-school. As I took off from my parking lot I noticed it was jerking and struggling to move. It got me to the school fine and on my way back, it worsened. It really struggled to move.I stopped and try the reverse and it was working until suddenly it stopped. It'd go on gear fine but it won't move. I had to push it home (luckily I was 2 blocks away).
Here's the problem in a nutshell: Car goes in gear but doen't move. My mechanic thought it was the clutch. He took the tranny off to find a relatively new clutch in there. So before he starts guessing,I thought I should research on my own.

I own a 93 3000GT, I am wondering if the 92 body is compatible for parts. I have found a 92 3000GT and I need a passenger door and passenger front-side(over the wheel well) panel. Would the 92 body parts work on my 93? I love my car 3000GTs are the best!!!

91 to 93 models are the same. i think 94 is close with a different hood and headlights mainly. also if you need parts the dodge stealth is the same car with diffrent trim packages.

How do I change the tail light bulbs on a '93 3000 gt?

My 94 did the same thing. It turned out to be a sensor on the engine. I can't remember what it's called but has something to do with the fuel flow. It has an electrical wire coming out of it and is held in by 2 screws. It costs about $ 350.00 at the dealer but can be had online for about $180.00. Hope thia helps, Good luck.

To change the bulbs, there are some plastic panels on the rear inside the trunk, just pull the covers of and you will see the light bulb holders, twist out nad there are the lights

#79 of 336 Help 3000GT Info
Apr 04, 2007 (10:57 am)
I have a 3000GT. My alarm system had problems and now my dealer said there is no indication with the alarm system that I am activating my alarm (such as horn beeping, lights flashing, etc.). I know there was a sound. Does anyone have a 1997 3000GT and have information related to the alarm system.
