Intermittent heavy engine vibration goes through the steering wheel, chugs like a tractor in reverse gear, engine management lights come on, revs when cold but no power, not a smooth ride at all. Only had it 3 weeks, first 2 days drove like a new car then all the problems started, been in and out of garages since I've had it, they cant find anything wrong, all they have done is change transmission fluid. I`m getting rather fed up with the car. Please help, first garage said there was miss fire in one of the cylinders, second opinion garage said there's nothing to find.

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Can someone please give me some advice? I just bought a 2.5 Shogun Sport 04 warrior, it`s my first 4x4 and I`m not sure how to use the 4wd. When I put it in 4h or 4l there is no green light on that I can see (I`m assuming it`s on the dashboard), how do I check if 4wd is actually working?

Answers

The green light to indicate engagement of 4 wheel drive is on the right hand side of the dash panel. Might be a bulb blown! If you engage 4 LOW you should notice a considerable loss in speed (there's no 2WD in low) and therefore 4WD is working. Silly question but have you got a propshaft going to front and rear axles? :-) Dave Dave from Essex

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Hi, I drive a 2005 shogun 2.5td sport and just before Easter I left it in for a full service and timing belts with Mitsubishi, now when the engine is first started and cold the oil gauge would read 2.5 and when at running temperature and ticking over the oil pressure gauge is reading (O) when I start to accelerate the needle will rise slowly and at 55/60mph it would be sitting between the one and two on the gauge. Can anyone tell me if that is normal? Because mitsubishi don’t seem to know. Many thanks, Syd.

Answers

The oil pressure should never read zero unless of course the engine isn't running. My 2004 model never reads less than 1.5 bar (about 22 psi). I have heard that the balance belt can be put on incorrectly but whether this causes an oil pressure fault I'm not sure. If you are 100% sure the oil pressure was OK prior to the service then I would take it back and insist they resolve the issue. BEST OF LUCK. Dave Dave from Essex

Answer this question

Tony Clarke , Antrim

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

My car is losing power when driving, it`s terribly sluggish and just about reaches 65-70 mph downhill. Going uphill it struggles to reach 45 mph and when you put the right pedal to the floor the revs will climb to 4500 rpm but it feels in some way disconnected to the speedo, ie the two don't work together. This has been getting progressively worse and I'm worried the engine might be about to blow up or something. Can anyone suggest what might be causing the problem please? Is it a common fault? Is it a cheap fix?

Answers

Clutch slip, do you have a steep hill nearby? Start at the bottom of the clime, put your foot down & if the engine revs increase & you don't seem to be speeding up, the clutch is slipping. No quick fix for this, only a new clutch Tony.Trebor from Lancashire

I have had same problem, if u turn the engine of and leave for a few minutes and turn on again giving it some throttle it should start again properly. If this is the case then it's your accelerator pedal. The car has an electric and is not getting enough power at times, i find its ok on long journeys it just don't like short ones were you have to keep turning the engine on and off. If your not happy with it you will need to change the pedal which will be quite expensive. Danny from Antrim

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

I have a Shogun Sport 05 plate - the engine management light keeps coming on although there seems no change in performance. My mechanic took it to Mitsubishi for diagnostics ... said it means turbo might be on the way out & when it goes the car will be scrap. Does anyone know whether it's really unviable to replace the turbo? Also when it goes, does it do any damage / be spectacular in any way?

Turbos can be reconditioned depending on what went wrong with it.

I have just had this solved. It is a corroded fuse that covers the ABS relay. Look down the side of your battery and you will see a red cover, remove this and there is a block of fuses. If one has green corrosion on it, this is enough to reduce the voltage and show an ABS/handbrake fault. Replace the whole unit - about £16. from a Mitsi dealer.

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Hello. My 2004 Shogun sport drives normally when I leave in the morning but after a few miles the engine management light comes on and stays on until I stop and remove the keys. When I put the keys back in and start the car up again the light is off. Also when the light comes on it seems to be losing power. Can anybody help? Thamks

got a problem with gears bit stiff to get in gear 5th getting a nightmare at high speed any help is it the gear box or just nylon bushes

Answers

Where the linkage from the gear lever connects to the gearbox mechanism there are a couple of plastic bushes lining the holes that the connecting bolt passes through. A tiny amount of wear in these bushes may make it difficult for the selector mechanism to move up and down as it should. Renewing these bushes should cure the problem. These are not shown in what passes for a maintenance manual so I have no idea of how readily they may be obtained. I turned my own, making them as close a fit as possible without binding on the pin.

Mitsubishi Space Star

I have a space star 2013/2014 (nedcar version, not the 1999-2005 version). Should it only have one reverse light, or two? Only one reverse light lights up on one side when reversing. And one reverse light on one side makes my eyebrow arch on one side too! Is this really the new way to do reverse lights, like my dealer claims?

Answers

Yup. It's true. One light only. A. C. Kludge from Netherlands

My Mitsubishi Shogun Sport has a knocking noise coming from under the bonnet and is losing power and juddering. What could this be? Thanks.

I’ve put red x in my take and had no problems at all Jason Williams from Essex

Jason, Are you just stating something you have done to your car, or are you suggesting that you had knocking from engine and you put red X in and it sorted that? I cant see Red X sorting out Karen Holmes issue? Slight possibility for the Loss of Power but so many other reasons it could be, but for the knocking.... red x.... pete from Isle of Wight
