Depends if the recall has been preformed or not. And it all depends on the dealership. Some will and so won't. Do they have too, no, the time frame for any recall is 10 years... and we are past that since the initial recall was issued. Some dealership will also require proof of "scheduled" maintenance. And then some will do with no questions asked. Where are you located, maybe somebody can chime in with a good dealership.

I would suspicious of the driveshaft carrier bearing or even the u-joints. If you can get your car up on jackstands, see how much "play" there is in the driveshaft by hand.

LOL.. seven year necro bump...

The car has been in service for 22 years... Expecting the manufacturer to fix anything for free at that point is insane.

Particularly since you aren't the one that handed them $35k in 1991...

Unless you already have a relationship with a mitsu dealer that has motivation to make you happy, and get something like that covered under goodwill, I wouldn't hold my breath...

Mitsubishi Re: Transfer Case-Screw them before they screw U. My experience.

My T-Case leaks, It's not bad, but enough to cause concern.
I've put at least a quart of fluid in since December.

Does anyone know where a good -super cheap- reseal kit is?
I've already paid an arm, leg, & other unmentionable assorted body parts into it...

Also, another thing I found out about the recall is all they mainly did was check fluid level and refill, even on leaking ones, so they didn't have to pay out.

I was told my TC case recall service was completed.
Why does it drip when I park then? Fail...

u joint would seem like it could be a usual culprit, but in this case it just seems not to fit. basically from any gear when i downshift, will shake for just a moment, and then stop, but not before the full downreving of the engine is over. the car has been completely overhauled by a shop with stock oem parts, complete motor rebuild. even stock turbo piping, i mean this thing is STOCK the free boost mod hadnt even been done yet, nor the cats gutted. he said it never had that problem until he got it back from rebuild. i hope this maybe brings ideas. but other than paint it is perfect!!
