battery i ha e to charge on battery charger. when i crank it feeels like it wants to start but it doesnt I purchase the car for $500 knowing it wasent running and needs new fuel pump but still doesnt start
I purchased the car few days ago not running due to needs new fuel pump well we replaced it with new fuel pump and still wont start it cranks like it wants to turn on but fails.there is lots of wires that are not connected or wires just messed up the car was sitting at previous owner home on non operational for 3 years
It won't get over 60 and when I accelerate after it gets to 60 it shoots the RPMs to 4-5k and when going up hills it will shoot the rpms up and I will have to let off the gas and I end up going up hills at 30-40 mph
Just recently unhooked the under glow my car and under it. Had bunch wires run under driver side dash. Need to know if there is a plug in that I missed under the dash that might have got unhooked. Driver side nor passenger side work and its not the window lock button I don't think. Any help would be appreciated thanks
when i push the cruise on switch light comes on but goes off as soon as i release switch
Were good but still cleaned. It doesnt start first time usually takes two to three times. Once iet starts i.can rev all the way out. I try to move an it loses power an starts idling funny. Not sure what my issue is please help
It initially only stalled when coasting to a stop. Now on 100 degree days it stalls even while accelerating. On cool days, e.g.when it rains, and at night it doesn't stall. I work overnights and am personally nocturnal so I don't drive much during the day. There is no engine light or code. When it stalls it's exactly as if I'd turned the ignition off and I can turn the car back on after one or two attempts. The mechanic said when they tried to connect to the computer they got zero communication the first couple of times. They want to replace the ignition because if you tap the key the car does turn off and said bumps in the road could trigger the stall. I tried this and found that it had to be a hard tap, and since I drive the same places at night and during the day the bumps should be the same so I don't see why time of day would affect it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your time and help.
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!!!!!
All possible causes for limp mode have been checked. The TCM has blown chip. Does the replacement TCM have to be reset or programmed by a dealer before it will work when installed
Automatic...when put into reverse or drive car looses power and moves very slow.bought car cheap,had no transmission,bought rebuilt tranny,changed fuel filter,new plugs,did compression check and all is good there ,and timing is correct,new plug wires ..the car ideals fine and revs up fine and shows no codes on reader..im thinking its a sensor but which one?
Be a fuse or is it my alt?
Why does the oil light come and stay on?
i changed the oil today and my car still smokes and i figure could be the rings or the valves is there any other reasons it could smooke ......???????
Runs great until you shut it off then won't start back till it cools off
I was hooking up a sound system and I accendently touched positive and negative. They come from the battery. After that my stereo and my power seats won't work and my dome lamps. Every fuse is good. It works when the car is on only. So it's something that blew out.
replaced ecu, intake motor? and now the throttle body? isn't this excessive? is now saying the car was from California and theres something about the emissions control? I am not buying it.
It starts but then shuts off after a few seconds, or sooner if I let off the clutch or step on gas.
Looking to change the trans. filter. Do I need a pan gasket or just use black RTV? Thanks.
headlight doesn't go down without getting stuck
A couple of weeks ago, in order to start my car I would turn the key over and pump my clutch until my car turned over. But before it would start I would hear nothing but a click from my engine every time I engaged the clutch. Some times I could be doing this for 5min or even 2 hours. Then I replaced the starter and it worked for a little bit but when your turned the car over your would hear some grinding and the engine stuttered a little bit. Then it wouldn't turn over at all. I took the car to auto Zone and had the battery, starter, and alternator tested the first two passed but the alternator didnt.. Then I would basically only be guaranteed 1 start out of my car a day because if I went to the store and turned my car off I wouldn't be sure if my car would start again. I've tried jumping my car from multiple cars as well as push starting my neither of these methods have helped me get my car up and rolling this weekend I spent 2 days taking my starter back off and having it retested which it passed, flushing my radiator because it was foaming and it seems like my muffler seems to be stuttering to while I'm drivong , and clipping the ends of the battery cables because of the battery corosion. I'm at my wits end can any help
And why do I have white smoke coming from the exhaust pipe?
I am agonizing for almost a week over the decision on if i should purchase a 1998 mitsubishi 3000GT or not. I have found a pristine/immaculate one with only 33,000 miles on it. it was garage kept and maintained and is spotless inside and out...a beautiful looking car that i'd love to own. Have had dozens of people tell me DON"T DO IT!!!! they say this car will wind up being a headache and money pit....that it wasn't well built is known for too many issues and the parts are going to be expensive and hard to get especially as more years pass. I was determined to still get it and then started to think rationally and not be cluded by the excitement of owning it for it's beauty. What do the experts say here??? i already have my dream car/ charger...but did want this. It would be my 2nd car but would be my primary use car especially come winter when i garage keep the charger. please...some serious input...is it too much of a gamble? i am excited to go grab this car up wit
hin the next day or two....price is 13,000 but it's not whether it is 10k or 20k...it is if i am looking at alot of issues or does this car stand the test of time. it was kept up very well by folks who just wanted to own it...drove it gently and garage kept. under the hood has been updated as far as hoses etc and new timing belt.
