Ok so I take the trip to a car dealership to check out a 3000GT SL. It
appears i n great shape.. I'm told it has a "mist" in the engine and
that the car may be running on 5 cylinders instead of 6.. I'm clueless
about this since i'm not mechanically incline... Does ANYONE here know
what this means? The guy says it prob. could cost $2,000 to fix it..
Can anyone give me a very vague rough idea what I may be facing. The
car is $8,100 and only needs that work. Thanks!

The miss could be caused by a variety of problems, some cheap, some
Since you know very little about cars, don't even consider this vehicle (or
any other vehicle for that matter) if its not running properly. You might
try offering them $8100 IF they get the car running correctly first.
again, it's just like stewart sez....
the spark plugs are a huge pain in the ass to remove on that car, so it may
be as simple as that but since you are not a car person, run.
these older mitsu's make great project cars as stewart and i have proven but
i have true pitty for the average driver stuck with one and depending on it
Guys.. I'm not mechanically incline... "mist" is "miss".. excuse me..
geesh... Anyways... I have never seen a VR-4 with decent mileage for
$8,000... Even the 1993 VR-4 with 12x,000 miles goes for $10k^...
