I have Mits. 3000Gt and when in second to third gear, the engine revs but does not speed up! Do you think it is the clutch or transmission?


Asked by May 22, 2015 at 07:57 PM about the 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT 2 Dr SL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have owned my 3000GT since 1996 and have maintained her to the utmost. I have
replaced water pump, timing belt, transmission flush, replaced clutch in 2009, just not
sure why in 2nd to 3rd gear the engine revs, but the speed of the car is not adequate.
Just not sure if this is due to transmission issues or clutch. please help?

sounds like you should sell it to me....cheap. lol


You are TTTOOO funny! This is my baby and just wanting to maintain her to the best of my ability...


Maybe it's the transmission sensor computer ? I notice on these cars there is a lot of electronics that monitors and controls tons of different things. And one box under dash stands alone it is for tranny system to monitor the drive and speed to perform with the engine , so it maybe a bad sensor or tranny ECU..my guess
