How do I adjust the front wheel bearings as the last MOT said the have a slight movement in them. Cheers, John.

Answers

My best advice is to let the garage do it. They wont charge a huge amount, but will have accurate torque wrenches. The loads on these bearings are huge, so this adjustment is critical. Overtightened bearings will wear much quicker and will enevitably fail catastrophically! Paul from Cambridgeshire

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

My 2000 Sport 2.5TD has done 165K miles, has only had the oil and filter changed twice since 90K, and still has a hot oil pressure of about 25PSI on the guage. When cold, it reads about 70PSI. I suspect your guage has a fault - your engine will last no more than 5 minutes with no oil pressure! Also, your oil pressure warning lamp will light if the oil pressure is below about 10PSI.

Fog lights not working fuses are ok happened during mot test 1bulb on rear was not working only realised I had no fog lights altogether on a foggy morning haven't changed relay

Answers

Most likely, just blown bulbs. If they are the originals, then they will fail at about the same time, since their operating hours will be identical. If not, check the relay for correct operation, but design spec relays normally outlast bulbs by quite a margin. It is always posible that the relay has been replaced at some stage with an inferior spec - worth a check. Paul from Cambridgeshire

I have an oil leak on my 2005 Shogun Sport 2.5TDi Warrior. It's coming from somewhere at the back of the sump oil pan, just above the front axle. I need to get it on ramps or over a pit to get a good look. Do any of you experienced guys know if the oil pan is easy to replace or is it an 'engine out' job? Thanks, Livvy.

Answers

There are two potential oil leak points at the rear of the sump: The common one is the rocker cover gasket, which fails at the back by the bulkhead, and the other is the rear crank oil seal. Check the rocker cover first because the alternative is not cheap to replace! Paul from Cambridgeshire

Michael, West Sussex

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Hi I have a shogun sport 2005 and as I am 6ft 5 I would like to increase the driver legroom. It's either a steering boss and after market steering wheel which I cannot find exists . Or increase the seat runners. Can anyone advise of a steering boss that easily fits or have adapted the runners in anyway Thanks Michael

Answers

I'm 6ft and I can adjust the seat quite a bit further back, so you must have really long legs! You should also be able to adjust the seat height and steering column, but you can't pull the wheel towards you as you can in some cars. If none of this works, then try adjusting the seat back to a more upright position, allowing your backside to fit more snugly, thus increasing legroom. Without reasearching it, I can't help much on the replacement steering wheel idea. Paul from Cambridgeshire

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport

Hi,please help as I'm having a nightmare with my Shogun sport 2.5 diesel 06 plate. My brakes keep binding on after a short journey! I have had my local garage replace calipers,brake hoses and they are at a loss as to how all four brakes are still binding. They say the master cylinder appears to be working but have no way of proving. The only other thing they say it might be something to do with the ABS pump but not sure as they disconnected the ABS and yet again it still bind after a few miles. Would really appreciate any advice. Cheers Ricky c.

Answers

If all four brakes bind after a short journey, and you have new calipers, then it can only be one of the two things you have mentioned. I used to rebuild ford escorts in another life, and I got this problem when I adjusted out the freeplay on the brake pedal/master cylinder pushrod assembly. Once everything heated up, the little freeplay I had left disappeared, and the pushrod was not allowing brake fluid back into the reservoir, and everything just tightened more as the brakes heated up! ABS problems are rare, but not unheard of. Does the ABS system function correctly when braking hard? Paul from Cambridgeshire

Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help me? I have a Shogun Sport which, when I get to 59 mph, the steering wheel starts shaking, then at 60 mph it stops. I`ve had the wheels balanced but it's still happening. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks, Rob

Answers

Hi Rob, each wheel has an adjustable bearing, Mitsubishi can do a 4 way alignment, this may help if you still have the problem, cheers, Syd. sydney mcnickle from Antrim

Most small balacing machines can't balance these wheels accurately enough (if at all!). You may find that switching wheels round front to back will change or illiminate the wheel shake, in which case, you have proved that they didn't get balanced properly. If the shake remains, then bearings may be your answer. Paul from Cambridgeshire

Answers

It sounds like you need a new radiater cap!!! If it's blowing cold this could be the answer as it will also cause temp to rise. Obviously this would depend on how old your l200 is, but if seal gone on cap this could be the faults that show up,, and it's only a £20 replace!! Good luck. Jimmy horne from South Ayrshire

I have a Mitsubishi Colt CZ2 with a semi-automatic gearbox. The car has developed a problem where it lurches forward as if I have been rear shunted as the car changes up to the next gear. The lurching forward is more severe in the lower gears. This issue is accompanied by another issue where the car will not start to role forward as you release the footbrake when starting off. I have to apply a reasonable amount of revs before the car lurches a bit, then starts to move. Any ideas as to what the problem is and the solution?

your proble here could be simple check the fluid level on the auto box it should have a seperate dipstick or fluid level resevior if it's low top it up and it should calm down other than that cables could be needing adjusted /replaced or worse still brakebands need adjusting or replacing best to get an auto box specialist to check it for you sammy from East Ayrshire

I have a Diesel 2006 DiD automated manual box in mine. It is not an auto in the traditional sense, it is a manual box where the gears are selected and the clutch actuated by electric servos under ECU control. I have the same fault. I had the clutch servo replaced (£200 + labour) and made no difference to the snatch starts. I have found that switching off the engine and restarting clears the problem - happens about twice a week over the last 18 months. Had diagnostics and found everything OK. It can only be the data being sent to the clutch servo from the ECU and I am more than happy to put up with it at their prices!! Of course, if anyone know any better please tell us all.

Mitsubishi L200

My Mitsubishi L200 double cabin turbo charger pick up`s radiator water levels drop after driving very short distances and I have to fill the coolant reservoir. The heat gauge starts to go up and down while driving and doesn’t go down while the motor is idling. The oil gauge starts to blink when the heat gauge goes up. I have changed the radiator cap but there has been no change. Does anyone know what I can do please?

Have u checked the radiator pipes? maybe one of them is leaking. Patrick from Botswana

Hi, I am having trouble closing the hood on my car, it seems as though the fitting on the hood wont slip in to place in the fitting at the front of the car when I try to drop the hood down . Any ideas would be great! Thanks.

On the front of the bonnet where the catch fastens you can normally screw it in or out so it locks into place.But not on all cars. brian from North Yorkshire

Hi, my Mitsubishi Colt front right light is not working so I want to change it but it is a little difficult. Can anyone help me with how I can change this light?

Answers

Open the bonnet and look behind the headlight. You should see a circular rubber pad around the size of your fist. Peel that off and you'll have a hole leading into your headlight. Turn the fixing anti clockwise and pull it out. Replace the bulb and work backwards. Thomas from Bridgend

To change my Colt's front bulbs, you have to turn the tyres all the way to the right - then go up behind the wheel. Nightmare. I hate this car SO MUCH. Louise from Cambridgeshire
