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?

Answers

Turbos can be reconditioned depending on what went wrong with it. There are plenty of Turbo specialists in the UK but I know of one about 15 miles from me called Marine Turbo Engineering, I would give them a call as they could remove the turbo and fix it before it becomes beyond repair. A turbo specialist nearer to you should provide the same service. Tracy from Cheshire

Mine is the same but I ain`t paying £3,500 for a new box, nor am I paying £150 from ebay when all you need is the seal. Take the drag link off, get a small drill and drill 2 small holes in the seal, put a self tap screw in and pull the seal out. On the face of the seal will be a set of numbers, take it to a bearing place and get a new seal £6 refit job done, you don`t even need to remove box Ian from Lincolnshire

Mitsubishi Colt

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?

Answers

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

Hi, I have a 53 plate Mitsubishi lwb l200 Warrior 2.5td manual, I had a recon engine fitted a couple of weeks ago and when I collected it the engine management light was on the garage that fitted the engine said it would need a new engine ECU to sort the problem as there was a problem with the negative earth from the ECU, The truck seams to run fine, No loss of power etc I took it to our local Mitsubishi dealer and the diagnosed the same thing and also said it would need an ECU and a immobilizer ECU I got both of the parts and they fiited them, The management light stayed off for a couple of test starts and then came back on, they now say there is a proplem with the negative earth from the Ecu, Does anyone have any ideas as the Mitsubishi dealers is struggling to sort problem, Many Thanks Gary

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.

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 Shogun

My 2012 Shogun has rear indicator lights on the rear bumper and not on the side rear panels where they should be in other cars and I wondered if this can be upgraded and where

Answers

Hi, This does not appear to be as simple as this. I just got a 2012 LWB SG3. Similar thing. Side lights and indicators only at the bumper level. All the upper clusters seemed to do was brake and reversing lights. Manual states there should be indicators, side / brake and reversing lights. Took off the units and found there is no indicator bulbs, position they would be is blanked off. (Not that I think this is correct, but there you go.) However, there is a dual filament bulb for the brake / side lights. Getting a meter onto the multi-plug that the lamp unit plugs into shows that one of the pins does energise when the side lights are on, but this does not match the pin arrangement on the plug on the lamp unit. Its as if the wrong pins have been installed by Mitsubishi. This cannot be correct. Has anyone else had this thing and have Mitsubishi done anything about it? Cam from South Lanarkshire

Hi all, Mitsubishi Shoguns from the first one up until the very newest have the indicators at bumper level colin from Gloucestershire

You can link the upper cluster lights to come on when lights are on. They have nice shimmer look and match in with the brake lights. The power is all there and the twin filament bulb is in place but only uses the brake filament until u connect the capped of wiring. Peter from Middlesex

Mitsubishi L200 2008

I have a 2008 Mitsubishi L200 warrior. Firstly the engine light came on so I took it to the mechanics and I was told the booster pump malfunctioned and that has been corrected. A few days later it came on again, the OFF ROAD lights came on and the vehicle started labouring when accelerating. The gas pedal had to be stepped on fully and the speed limiter was going to 3000rpm so I took it back and I was initially told it is the turbo that has a problem. They opened it but they found no problem. Now they are talking of the ECU being faulty. I have lost confidence in the mechanics looking at the problem. Does anyone have an idea? (Warrior)

The locking of the car works intermittently, today it was fine but then I noticed the radio wasn't working as well as the interior light. When I arrived at work I couldn't lock my car, no flashing indicators. When I returned home the same problem, it won't lock. I left the car for four hours, went back and still no radio or interior light. I used the inside door lock which locked the door but not the boot. I opened the car and started the engine and hey presto interior light works and so does the radio and the locking of the doors. Please tell me what's going on? Thank you in anticipation.

Answers

A long shot is you could try replacing the battery in the key as mine went the other day but only the doors wouldn`t lock. I think the electrics on the Colt can be a wee bit temperamental as I have been finding out, somtimes the technology they put in these cars are just overkill, not sure if the ecu might have something to do with it either.

I have an intermittent gear change problem some times it will take a long time to change and other times changes okay any ideas . Les

Answers

Hi Les. Two possible fixes, both fairly cheap and can be done at the same time. Drain the box and remove the screen filter inside the gearbox sump. I wasted money on buying a new one, don't. They can be cleaned out as they're metal mesh. Then refit the filter and sump and refill the box using original Mitsubishi automatic gearbox oil. Do not use anything else! It's not anymore expensive but it works like a charm. Henri Zermatten from South Africa

Hi does any body know where I can get my timing chain changed its not broken I want a new one fitted mitsubishi dealers won't get back to me on price do you need any special tools to do this job thanks

Answers

I was quoted £3000 + vat to have mine done by main dealer I bought the parts and done it myself would recommend changing the gears as well I found the lower chain guide that bolt.s to the timing cover broken and floating around the other guides how it didn't drop in the lower gears or take the chain of was surprising as for tools you need torque wrench angle guide. And a bit of knowledge on what your doing if not find a good back street garage as I ended up taking head of as well Chris from Kent

Mitsubishi Colt Have the semi automatic Cz2 Di-D When my daughter drives on motorways (quite fast I believe) vehicle loses power which is dangerous! She presses accelerator but gets no response and has to go into manual then back into auto. Dealers have put it on diagnostics and can find nothing! Any suggestions please?

Hey there, did you ever find a solution to this problem? We bought a Colt second hand last week and it has been doing this every time we hit 75, the acceleration cuts out and also the traction control and check engine light appears? Luke Graham from Middlesex

Mitsubishi Shogun

I've just purchased a shogun equippe 3.2. I take it for a short run and the temperature is fine. Then I switch off the ignition. A few minutes later I switch the ignition back on and the temperature gauge goes right up off the scale. The radiator feels pretty cool and the engine do not smell overheated. When I drive around a bit more the gauge goes back to normal. I thought it could be a problem sender but the one on the top of the thermostat have been changed. Are there any other sensors bedsides that one that could be at fault? Could the thermostat be sticking shut after shutting off the engine until it's forced back open by pressure? Can anyone tell me what could be going on? I'm sure the engine is not over heating and the head is in tact. I only get the problem after the engine have been run for a while and warmed up.

Just had this on my 02 changed everything Found answer on Pajero club of Victoria Web site it is a dry joint on a resistor at The back of the dash clocks just needs Touching both ends with a soldering iron Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Resistor is R10 Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Thanks very much for your help Steve it's very much appreciated ,but I was just wondering when you had the problem was the rev counter working .mine isn't and I'm just wondering if the problems may be connected ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Ian Rev counter on mine was ok but I'm Not Sure if the resistor has something to do With it If you remove the black cover 2 screws And clipped at the bottom the clocks are held In with 4 screws They just pull out on a plug Look on the back There's a white box about 2 inch square unscrew that and pull it of the the resistor is on the back of it it's very small I held it in place with a small screwdriver then touch both ends with a hot soldering iron the resistor will not be loose it a dry joint you don't need to add solder when you replace the white box remove the front glass and hold the clock face when you push it back home if you don't you can damage the clock hope this helps steve Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Thanks Steve, your help is tremendous, I'm working long hours through the week as soon as the week end comes I'll have a look to see if I can get the clock cluster out. I've only just bought it so at the moment I haven't got a clue what the setup is. Is it much work? I hope the whole dash haven't got to come out. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Ian easy job to do only takes about 30mins as i said 2 screws and pull the black trim off then 4 screws and pull the clocks out Good luck Steve Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Thanks Steve,I'll be letting you know how I got on as soon as I can. Thanks again. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Steve from rigby. I haven't forgotten you mate . what have happened is I've taken the shogun back to the dealer I purchased it from and explained the problem i was having and that i couldn't drive it around not knowing if or when the gauge was lying. In all fairness to the man he came the next day and took the shogun away to be repaired. It's being repaired by an electronics specialist and it's due back any time now. As soon as it is returned I'll get back to you again and tell you all what they have done and what the problem was. Perhaps Giga from Georgia will find the information useful as well. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Ian hope it's sorted soon don't know If fuel gauge is affected by this as it was only the temp gauge i had problems with Good luck Steve Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Steve I've had no problems with the fuel gauge but now you mention it Mitsubishi of Cardiff tells me that up until 2006 Shoguns were fitted with faulty temperature gauges and they have replaced many of them that have faulted in the way I have explained. The temperature and fuel gauges are one unit and can only be replaced as a pair. The cost of the clocks are £105 plus vat. A replacement rev counter costs about £75. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Steve.the shogun was delivered back to me on Friday. They had to change the whole clock cluster, and then they found that the rev counter still would not work . They found that the power was coming from the, I'm sure they said fuel pump, to the ecu and going no further.it appeared that Somehow someone or something to do with the rev counter had caused a short and blown the ecu.they purchased a new ecu direct from Japan and fitted it asp. I've got to say I'm most impressed. The shogun was advertised as a fine example and it really is. It's done 104k and the price was £1000 cheaper than any where else I found for a similar shogun, and when something went wrong they came and collected it, had it repaired at I'm thinking great expense and delivered it back with no quibble what so ever. I bought the vehicle from TG car sales central garage Pengam. South Wales. Phone 01443 829047. This is the second vehicle I've bought from this man, the first one was a Ford fusion which I bought about 4 yrs. ago and I've still got it now. I will definitely be going back there for my next car. I'd recommend them to anyone. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Ian glad to see its sorted changed my 02 recently for a 2011 but still wonder If I did the right thing Had the 02 for seven Years no big problems This is my 5th. Shogun Hopefully It'll be as good as the rest. Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Steve mitsubishi Cardiff said that my shogun was pre 2006 thats why I had the problem with the clocks, , because there was a bad batch. (It must have been a hell of a big batch), ,which implies that all shoguns after 2006 will not have the same problem with the clocks that I've just had. I'm hoping that this one will last me a few years, because I work 10hrs a day and that I haven't seen much of it owing to it being repaired, I haven't really had a chance to take it for a good run, but so far i think it's absolutely supurb. Compared to my daihatsu it's very comfortable, luxurious, spacious and it will go like hell. But what will it go like with 2 ton behind it I've yet to find out do you know. Steve when I first bought it I took it straight to a fuel station and filled it right up, I done 67 miles, it went to be repaired, came back, then another 12 miles back to fuel station,to be filled back up again, that must be an easy 9 miles . When I calculated the mpg it came to nearly 40 mpg. That can't be right can it? I'm thinking surely I found a good pump for the second fill. What sought of mpg was you Steve, what should I expect driving it sensibly? I've heard about someone who was pulling a horse box and got only 12 mpg, I hope that's not right either. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

I'm saying you shouldn't have the trouble with the clocks, that's assuming mitsubishi is right in saying it was the clocks and not the cuicit board ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hi Ian the 2002 was a swb and at a guess was Doing about 27mpg it was a manual gearbox thats driving gently we tow a Twin axle caravan not a lot less with that behind It unless you drive it hard. The 2011 is a lwb That's showing up to the 32mpg solo but down to about 20mpg when towing but This is a auto. Steve Rigby from Merseyside

Thanks Steve thats useful information, I've got the lwb and will be pulling a twin axle as well, a swift conquer. If it does 20 mpg pulling that I'll be pleased, that's all the daihatsu used to do. That used to pull well but I'm thinking perhaps this will pull better. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

Hello again Steve. Thought I'd just let you know, today I took the shogun to Aberystwyth. I filled up with fuel until I could see the diesel right up the filler pipe and then set on my way. There and back I done 186.5 miles and then filled back up with fuel to the same mark up the filling pipe again. I used 28.18ltrs of diesel. That works out to 6.618 miles per litre, 4.5ltrs to a gallon =29.78 mpg. I kept my speed between 50 & 60mph the journey is a&b type roads but is all up and down hills. This is a lwb automatic 3.2. I think that's a very good result and will be even better with motorway driving. I'm well pleased. ian Pippen from Caerphilly

When I start my jeep up its revving very high on its own does anyone know a solution for this please

Answers

Is a mitsubishi shogun sport warrior 2.5 litre by the way si from Middlesbrough

Do the basics first, check the air filter isn't clogged up. Then check it for fault codes, possibly air flow meter If this shows nothing then check the throttle body is not sticking open and closes properly. Not sure how long you've had it but we had one in once which had been adjusted to run at higher tickover before the new owner got it. The ECU then thought the throttle was open and gave more fuel hence higher revving. Glen cameron from Surrey

Hi all I have a shogun sport 3.0 v6 on lpg, great car but over heats more than it should, i did originally fit an aftermarket cooling fan but the radiator got that hot the aftermarket thermostat that came with it melted the contacts and then the plastic rods that go through the radiator fan melted and it fell off of the radiator, i have done some research and apparently the a.c cooling fan on the front of the car is supposed to come on when the car is hot, well issue i have is it doesn't. it only comes on when i turn the ac on so how do i repair this any ideas ? all coolant has been changed, themost has been changed (in the engine). There are 2 relays i have found under the bonnet 1 says comp and the other is fan both identical i swapped these around but no change in the issue i am at a loss ?
