Mitsubishi 3000GT Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Mitsubishi 3000GT based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
A hard shifting concern may develop. If this occurs a friction modifier can be added to the manual transmission fluid to help minimize this issue.
Vehicles with automatic transmissions may exhibit a delayed 2/3 or 3/4 upshift when transmission fluid temperature is below 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Our technicians tell us this is considered a normal condition.
The seat belts may not properly retract due to an internal fault with the retractor mechanism. Replacement of the seat belt retractor would be required to correct this concern.
The transfer case may develop a leak from the output seal. Our technicians tell us that if the transfer case oil level becomes low severe internal damage will result. Any leaks should be promptly addressed and the oil level should be checked at regular intervals
Tires may loose air pressure as a result of faulty chrome wheels. If this is found to be the case the affected wheels should be replaced in order to correct this issue.
All wheel drive vehicles may develop fluid leaks from the transfer case. Leaking seals and gaskets should be replaced as necessary to try and avoid damage to the transfer case due to lack of lubrication.
The speedometer may read higher than the actual vehicle speed as a result of the driven gear calibration. Our technicians tell us a updated speedometer driven gear is available to correct this issue.
The front brake hoses my crack when operated at full steering lock and suspension travel. If this occurs the affected brake hoses should be replaced to avoid a serious loss of braking efficiency.
Tire size mismatch on all-wheel drive vehicles can cause the front and rear driving wheels to "fight" (driveline wrap-up) which can result in drive train failure. Our technicians tell us that original equipment size wheels and tires should always be used to avoid the issue.
