Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Mitsubishi Pick Up Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 252006

Pick Up

  • Manual transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The truck would start fine in summer, but if it got cool, not freezing, just cool or cold...i would have to continue to try to start it. I replaced the starter, but that was not the problem. I would attempt to start the truck, and it would try to start but wouldn't turn over. After repeatedly attempting to start the truck, it would eventually start up. I would then have to let it run for a min or so before beginning to drive or it would die. This only happens in cooler weather. It starts right up when the weather is warm. Sometimes, if it got below freezing, I couldn't get it to start at all.
