Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Car starts and drives more or less as new, but has started to be very noisy at idle. It idles at a steady 750 rpm but just sounds rough and lumpy. Vibrates the whole car. New oil, and all new filters fitted made no difference. Car has done 95,000. Is this just wear and tear or is there something out of balance that can be corrected ? Thanks

Answers

You may have an faulty injector, which runs ok at higher rpm, but is partly blocked or leaking enough to prevent proper burn at idle, but I rather suspect you have a fault with the balancing assembly. There are two balance shafts, which are rotated by the balance belt (refered to as timming belt 'B' in the manual): These balance the crank at low rpm. You either have a broken belt or a seized balance bar, more likely both. The bearings can dry out and seize the bar, snapping the belt. Check the balance belt first to make sure it hasn't slipped or worse. If that's ok, you maybe looking at a pump or injector related fault. Hope this helps? Paul from Cambridgeshire

Hi Paul, thanks for your email. I've used injector cleaner fairly regularly and the engine doesn't sound like is it misfiring so I suspect it will be the balance belt/shafts. I assume the balance belt B is behind the front engine cover and can't be seen without some dismantling ? If the bar is seized is that a full engine strip down to replace or would there be a way of freeing it up ? Thanks. Neil from Hertfordshire

Answers

Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2di-d 2004 had timing chain replaced and some related gears, due to timing chain breaking in pieces. Running okay before, but now blowing out white smoke.

Answers

To solve this problem it very easy just check on dash board which door is open. Then open that door and on the car body where door will shut you can see round rubber which sticks out that is the sensor that sends message that the door is shut all you to is move that rubber to centre as it can easley be pushed to side and push it few times to check if it is at normal position that should resolve your problem.

When the screws rust, you have to resort to removing the complete unit, bracket et all. This can be reached via the wheel arch, I believe. I've not had to do this yet, but I,ve been told it's a real pain! Paul from Cambridgeshire

Just remove the small plastic grille from in front of the lamp. 3 Phillips screws. You'll have to drill/grind the rusted screws out (2) and the fitting is removable by popping it out of the grommet holding the opposite side. Unplug and remove. You can either drill the screws right out and replace or re tap the threads to re fix. When I did mine, the remainder of the screws obligingly drove though with the drill bit so I was able to re install with new screws. Otherwise self tapping screws will do. Use a bit of grease for next time. Andy Seaton from Surrey

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Hello everyone I hope you guys and help me out with my issue. I have a shogun sport 2.5 2006. Here is the story. Last year after it was in for a service it developed a intermittent misfire,the garage fitted 2 different fuel filters and no different. Long story short I got nowhere with the garage and it was left like that. The misfire/hunting was very intermittent and only at low speed 20to40mph and 1000 to 2500rpm. It then went away over the winter and has only came back now although more frequent. It seems to be less in the morning but gets worse the more the car is driven.After its stood outside work all day it is worse on the way home. When I accelerate it is hardly noticeable but drop down to crawl through traffic and its kangarooing but only for a few seconds. No eml on at any time. So on reading through the forums on here this is what I have done so far. Changed fuel filter for a dealer one, ran a pipe from a can of diesel direct to the pump and drove it, cleaned the egr valve, adjusted the turbo as suggested on here,checked all working plugs in engine bay,checked vacuum pipes and all seem to be sucking. All this has made no difference. I think it definitely gets worse due to temperature as it went away in the winter and it gets worse as it warms up. Any help would be great as I'm demented with it. If I can avoid going to the dealer it would be great. Thanks in advance

Answers

Low rpm hesitancy can be caused by a number of things. First thing to check is injectors. A sticky injector will cause the symptoms you describe. Water in the diesel will also cause improper burn, but I guess you have checked this already when swapping filters. Next, check the fuel pressure at the injectors, although it's likely you would notice poor acceleration at higher rpm if it was this. Next stop, electrics, particularly some of the sensors that control injection and cutoff. It could simply be a poor connection somewhere, where engine vibration causes a variation in circuit resistance. What happens when you run the engine at 2000rpm under no load (stationary)? I take it it idles fine? Paul from Cambridgeshire

The ECL shows that the engine management system has recorded a fault code. Use an ODB11 code reader to find the code or get a garage to read it for you. This should save spending out on replacing perfectly good parts, or at the very least will give the clues you need in order to identify the culprit. Paul from Cambridgeshire

Ian Horne, East Dunbartonshire

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

I have just recently bought my Warrior Shogun. I find while I'm driving on the motor way at about 3000rpm 70mph the engine starts to cut out momentarily. This keeps going until I drop it right down to 40 mph again. I have had it into the mechanic who can't find the fault. Mind you he never had it on the motor way and it never faulted when he was running it. It could idle all day and never miss a beat. I almost feels like it's running out of fuel but there is plenty ion the tank. Which makes me wonder if it's a fuel fault. I really appreciate if you have advice or have any knowledge of this. Many Thanks Ian

Always use recommended oil for the engine type you have. If the engine is very high milage, you may have to use a slightly more viscous oil to maintain correct oil pressure at hot idle.

Mitsubishi Colt

Hi Guys I have a Mitsubishi colt 1.1 the engine management light is contently coming on, it sometimes doesn't rev over 200and some days its no more then 1, I'm forever switching it off starting it up again, i had i checked and i was told it was the peddle sensor so had that changed but the car is starting to cut out and I'm still having the same issue is anyone else having the same issue or is it the car, the sensor was brought by Mitsubishi and was checked by them as well. if anyone can help please

Answers

My wife's would do the same thing. The engine management reported the Throttle Sensor Unit. The Colt doesn't use the typical accelerator cable to a throttle body on the engine block. It uses a 'fly by wire' system which is like the old Scalextric controller. It uses resistance variation like a volume control to send a value to the sensor. I was convinced it was a 'dirty track' on the pedal assembly just like a scratchy rotary volume on a stereo. This would give a wrong resistance value to the sensor unit which the Engine Management Unit would 'learn' and make fuel mixture adjustments. Hence the low revs sometimes. Due to the habit I have of holding down the clutch at stops, (it's just my fuel saving head kicking in!) I'd noticed the revs would keep fluctuating. After a spray of contact cleaner in the throttle sensor (no need to disassemble) and operating the pedal a dozen times, no more symptoms for a much longer period. I won't say it will go away (more dirt will eventually work it's way in) but a dozen presses of the pedal every few weeks before starting has seen a vast improvement. Now to try and fix the issue with the Clock Display not working anymore. Has anyone got a wiring diagram?!? Nigel from Derbyshire

it's a safety feature, read the manual, that key symbol is in there and should be the transponder, the key is not contacting properly with the car, sometimes it starts others it does not.

Field, France

Mitsubishi Grandis

I was driving our 2005 Mitsubishi, Grandis, Warrior, 2 litre, diesel, turbo. through France at approximately 70mph. The car has 95000 miles on the clock and has recently been serviced by a Mitsubishi dealer. The car had been running for about eight hours with regular breaks and no problems. There was a sensation similar to passing through a gust of wind followed by a gradual loss of power. No warning lights came on and the engine continued to run. After pausing in a lay-by we continued our journey for another two hours to reach our destination. During this latter phase of the journey, the car was unable to accelerate normally and it was not possible to generate more that 2-3000 rpm. The engine seemed to be able to generate revs better in 2nd and 3rd gears but power was poor throughout. Please advise what is the most likely cause of this problem and what should be done.

Car will feel 'heavy' or 'stiff' when in 4 wheel drive because of the extra load being placed on the drive train. Start the engine in neutral, wait 10 seconds for the vacuum to charge, then try moving the 4wd lever through its 3 positions, returning it to the 2wd position. If this doesn't work, try moving the vehicle forward, then backward a short distance and then back to neutral to try the 4wd selector again.

Excessive crankcase pressure (if that's what they are referring to?) can result in oil being inducted into the engine, but this will be burnt during combustion, resulting in blue smoke. Oil in the exhaust can only get there from the turbo oil seal. Paul from Cambridgeshire
