1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Usually the warning light (SRS) goes out within a few seconds after you start the car..it is remaining on and I think it has something to do with the air bag system....HELP!!!!!
and the add coolant lights are on and the volt meter is at 8 volts.
I was driving home from work and was going between 45 and 50 MPH, when I heard a slight pop. From there the engine seemed to have cut off, and all the dash lights popped on. I then slipped the car into neutral and tried to start it but it sounded like the starter was not engaging it just whirled. I then popped the hood looked and on the driver side of the engine I could see a pulley had melted through the dust cover below the timing belt. Once I got it pulled back to the house I pulled off the dust cover to find that the Timing belt tensioner bolt had worked its way out and popped off, allowing for the timing belt to slip off. Repositioned the crank and the cams to align with the marks on the block installed a new bolt for the tensioner and put the timing belt back on. Now when I turn the key to attempt to start it there is a clicking sound from the throttle body and the car just whirls. The starter is engaging as I watched the pulleys move as we attempted to start the car. It is like it is not getting any spark or fuel. Every so often it will pop in the exhaust. I unplugged the EFI fuse and the clicking stopped. I traced the clicking down to a piece that I do not know the name of just below and behind the intake hose on the throttle body. Please help this is my work car and my wife really needs her van for the kids while I am at work and I don't like leaving her without a way to go.
Thank you for your time.

I used to be a professional mechanic but it's been a lot of years since I did any work and I'm new to the import scene. Anyway, we bought a 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT, SL to use as a show vehicle for our vehicle wraps business.
I recently overhauled the engine and got it back together and in the vehicle and it started up fine and ran well for about 4-5 minutes and then stalled out, but while it was running it was pouring out white smoke, which would indicate a blown head gasket. After removing the heads again, I saw no sign of the gaskets being blown but the center cylinder in each head was black, while the others looked normal. Any suggestions would be appreciated while I'm waiting on the machine shop to tell me something. Additionally, at first, I had no leaks from the vehicle, but after keeping it running after it wanted to stall, I saw a puddle of clear oil under the car which stopped as suddenly as it started but I don't know if it's the tranny or the engine so I'll have to pull them apart to find out I guess but if there's no tell tales I don't know what to look for.
