1993 Mitsubishi 3000gt won't go into 4th gear
The 3rd to OD shift solenoid is bad. You have to remove the transmission pan to replace it. While in there, I would take out the other 2 and thoroughly clean them with spray brake or carb cleaner. You will be amazed how much crud will come out.
You may have some other problems too. The Mitsus of that era were notorious for having circuit board problems in the engine and transmission computers. The capacitors leaked and damaged the circuit boards. Sometimes they can be saved by replacing the caps and a thorough cleaning. I have rebuilt several over the years, not always successfully.
A guy named Dean Mason at TransLab in Cali makes a shift improver kit for your car. I STRONGLY recommend you install one when the pan is off. If you are on the east coast, try John at Import Performance Trans in NJ.
