2001 Mitsubishi Diamante Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante

A coolant leak may develop from the heater core, requiring replacement of the heater core.

The automatic transmission may fail prematurely requiring overhaul or replacement of the transmission.

A brake pedal pulsation may be noted on brake apply. This is commonly caused by warping of the front brake rotors. Our technicians remind us that re-machining (turning) the rotors can correct this issue but the repair may last only a short time as the thinner rotors would be even more prone to warping. Replacement of faulty rotors with high quality parts is often the best option in these situations.

I just bought a new battery last month, and put it in but i still don't know why the light comes on.

when the car gets a jump, the trunk opens??

Does not feel like transmission is fully engaging. While shifting into reverse it shifts very hard. Seems to be an intermittent problem. Plenty of fluid.
150k miles.
