Hi can any one help I got a shogun trojun sport 07 plate . The green four wheel drive light keeps flashing but its driving fine and the abs light comes on now and then.thanks chris

Answers

Own 02 Shogun sport 2.5Td. Had same problem a couple of years ago and it was caused by lack of use of the 4wd. You need to replace the freewheel clutch which is an electric device easy to fit under the bonnet. Check it out and hopes it sorts the problem.

Apparently my daughter`s Mitsubishi Shogun Sport should have 2 belts under the timing cover. At the last timing belt change @ 72K miles the mechanic didn’t use a Mitsubishi belt kit and only fitted 1 belt. According to the latest mechanic she consulted this has caused a problem that cannot be fixed by simply fitting another belt. Can you advise me what the 2 belts were for and what damage has now resulted, as my daughter cannot give me that detail? Thanks.

Answers

Yes Jim there are two belts under the timing cover, a) timing belt b) balance shaft it's rule of the thumb that you have to change both belts in one go, to save you time and money as it is a bit hard to change this belts and for your peace of mind in case one of the belt will broke. To have a clear view about the position of the belt goggle it just put the engine model of your car(like mine is 4D56) and then timing belt. Let me know if the engine model is the same as mine and I will give you the replacement belt part no. That I put in my car two months ago Avelino Casio from Essex

When I’m towing my caravan with my Mitsubishi Shogun Sport, more so on hills, the temperature goes right into the red. I have had a new radiator fitted and flushed the cooling system and new coolant added. It takes a little time to cool but if it`s hill after hill then it stays in the red. What can I do to remedy this problem? It runs fine without the caravan on.

Answers

Hi, check the fan is starting okay when hot and the amount of fluid in the radiator, if that`s all good then try jet washing the radiator through the front bumper grill. If that doesn`t help change the thermostat or if that`s still not good it might be your water pump on its way out. Good luck Michal from Middlesex

Mitsubishi Shogun

Hello my car is petrol which misfire under load and when revvig engine at park around 2300rpm.code is mostly p300 and sometimes p301 and p304.I changed the spark plugs, switch the coils, change tps,maf,map,switch injectors,change fuel pump and filter,check compression test (all 6 were around 160),check fuel pressure,change timing belt,clean egr,change crank angle sensor and no luck yet.would you please help me.also when downhilling with throtle closed at sport mode does that again.surprisingly at altitude above 2500 meter above sea she goes like a champ no matter how much load applied.car idles great,no problem on ordinary driving regards

Answers

here are some things to try, p300 codes tell you which cylinder is misfiring but if getting various codes then it could be many things that are causing the problem. 1st check that your timing is correct, swap the coil packs above the spark plugs around and if it gives you p303 & p302 codes then these coil packs are faulty. you don't say what engine is in your car i.e 1.8 or 2.0 is it a GDI engine or MPI what is the year of manufacture ?. if its a 2.0 GDI this engine has an ignition failure sensor which is bolted to the front of the intake manifold which is prone to failure, altho this usually cause a complete non start but it is worth checking. check under the flap in the throttle body as it gets clogged with carbon and clean it with carb cleaner. have the rear 02 sensor checked as it should put out a voltage signal of between 0.6 to 0.9 volts smoothly when its working properly. if its faulty it will cause the engine to run rich or lean which would cause a random misfire. finally you might have a vacumm leak at the inlet manifold once again causing it to run rich or lean. good luck hope you get it sorted but again check your timing cos it has to be totally spot on in the GDI engine willie from Dumfries and Galloway

Answers

Hi Nick, My 2005 Warrior snapped the crankshaft pulley bolt on two occasions, after which i fitted a replacement /used crankshaft. My mechanic thinks i need a replacement engine. So be careful. I would have my mechanic check it out, but for this you may need to remove the crankshaft in order to be able to examine it in detail. Only then, will you be able to determine if you need another crankshaft. I already spent a lot of money on this. Hope this helps, if you have not already fixed the problem. Daniel from Cyprus

I have a Mitsubishi Shogun Sport and coolant/water is pushed through the expansion bottle in less than a minute and when I open the radiator cap while running bubbles appear with the coolant. Engine history had first overheating problem last month, so I replaced faulty themostat and radiator cap and the problem was rectified. I now have to fill up the radiator with every hour of use because water is pushed through to the bottle. What`s the likely cause, has the head gasket gone? (The oil is not diluted).

Answers

Sounds like head gasket, but could also be a blocked rad or air lock in the system. Steve Faragher from Cheshire

Check that there is no hole on rad ,the rad is very fragile take plastic housing of so you can just see fan and rad squeeze hose while running to see if leak ,if it does leak then you might be able to resolve with a rad seal Drew from Middlesex

that first reply you got is wrong, if your battery has been disconnected the the ECU has to go through a learning process after you have reconnected it. its quite simple, make sure all the windows are closed, radio off, air con and heater blower off, lights off, then start the engine DO NOT REV IT UP and leave it to idle for about 12 to 15 minutes then switch it off wait 5 minutes then start it up and it should be back to normal.

hi Kirsty first of all its ridiculous that a mitzy dealer cannot read the fault code for you, but anyway any good OBD2 fault code reader should be able to find the fault code for you or you could buy one yourself from Halfords, e bay, amazon etc etc. (they,re not expensive). the socket to plug it in is under the dash on the left hand side just about knee height. if you manage to get a fault code then this is only the starting point as it wont tell you the exact fault, it will tell you in what engine system the fault lies. Here are some common problems for the symptoms you are describing and you can get them checked. throttle body cokes up which strangles the revs, Air flow meter is faulty, spark plug coil pack/s are faulty, ignition failure sensor is faulty, micro filters inside the fuel pump clogged with dirt (easy replacement) 02 sensor faulty, dirty fuel filter (inside fuel tank), idle speed control valve faulty. this sounds scary with these faults but its impossible to tell until you get a fault code then you can get a starting point of where to look. first of all check if theres fuel getting to the injectors, check you have a constant spark at the plugs, then check the timing is all in order, its really annoys me when dealers say they cant find a fault code its a simple process and to say they have no softwear is a disgrace. if you can get this code I will be able to help you solve your problem and don't panic its probably something simple as you say the car starts and runs initially willie from Dumfries and Galloway

Answers

Hi there, What colour is the smoke that is coming from the exhaust? Black smoke = (in my experience) Dirty intake manifold flap and clogged EGR valve. solution to this is to take off these two components which are at front middle of engine with a big black pvc hose attached to it and have them cleaned with carb cleaner rags and a toothbrush. What I do to prevent the sooty buildup on my grandis is I avoid supermarket diesel and once a weak i give the car a good blast if you like up the revs to clear out any buildup in the intake word of caution though, dont run the engine rev counter to close to the red line. works for and feels smooth when driving. Also the reason why it gets coked up is usually short town trips like school runs etc. martin from Angus

Mitsubishi Carisma

I have a carisma which when you start it runs but you put of the engine and immediately try starting it again, it will never start until 12hrs later. Took it to an auto electrician they said it was the control board so we bought another one but it is still not working. doing the same old thing. If anyone has any suggestions please help me with it Thank you

I have a similar problem, although it is not so consistent. The ignition reset timer is related to the door locking circuit. So when I get the locked out situation, I open and close trhe driver door which resets the timer. Nathan Phatti from Israel

I have a 55 plate Mitsubishi Shogun Sport which has a green axle light come on and sometimes the ABS. The brakes are fine and the car isn’t in 4 wheel drive. I’ve been told it could be one of 6 switches. Can anyone help? (55 plate)

Answers

It’s the switches in the gearbox, there are six and are about £50 each. They have been modified so Mitsubishi recommend changing them all or another could fail. I have same problem A.B.S. included been quoted two hours labour to drop back of gearbox.to fix. Ian lawrie from Bridgend

Hi there mate, never mind the expensive switches on the gear box the prob you have is green 4 x 4 light comes on and then after about 4miles if you have any cause to brake the ABS light comes on when you then turn the ignition off the green and 4 x 4 light goes out until you brake again. Problem is you have two relays in the engine bay drivers side with a series of small bore rubber pipes coming off them and also a electronic plug coming out of them, these are relays which either drag the 4 x 4 drive in or out of sequence as it operates on a vacum either one or both relays have gone about £11 each or you have an air leak on the rubber pipes about £20 for the set. If you change the switches on the gear box £85 per switch x 2 and a big labour bill to drop the box to enable fitting. Hope this helps you Andy Davies from Cardiff

Mitsubishi L200

My jeep is hard to start and won't take over smoothly also the engine management light is on wat is my problem

Answers

If the management light is on then your power is reduced some what and will cause problems.The light comes on as an engine safe guard to protect it.Having said that my L200 Animal management comes on spuriously at times so I stop turn off the ignition wait 30 seconds and I'm off again.It's a common fault as have friends who own L200's and it happens to them. Mitsibushi knows about this fault and I think they are at a loss The main culprit could be the "Waste Gate" which is situated near your turbo it's a cylinderical piece that lies flat near the top of your engine on the right side and and one end is a piston that opens and shuts which controls your turbo when the turbo is engaged.Try using WD40 and sray the piston with it as sometimes the piston can stick. I think mostly it's an electrical connection fault. ANDY from Suffolk

If it is an automatic it could be the gearbox inhibitor switch which stops you starting the engine whilst in gear Brian Lindley-Hart from Derbyshire
