Mitsubishi L200

Last night the top radiator hose on our L200 Warrior split causing the temp gauge to go sky high. I managed to limp home after replacing it with a temp one and topping it up. Tonight I have fitted a new hose, hoping that would rectify the problem. On refilling the system and restarting the truck the temp gauge was again high and I had no heat in the cab. I have removed the thermostat and used gasket glue and now the temp stays at the half way mark but I now have fluid bubbling into my expansion tank. The head was replaced 6 and a half years ago ........... can anyone shed some light on this ??????

Answers

Either head gasket has gone or egr cooler perforated! Just had same problem ! Mine was caused by a worn fuel injector pump that caused damage to the injectors and led to the head over heating and thus cracking and damaging gasket. Rick from Hull

Hi. I've recently got a 2004 shogun 3.2 did auto, and it doesn't start very well, a few shaky cranks and it fires, it also intermittently cuts out whilst pulling up to a junction ! Just wondered if any other owners have suffered with this. I have heard that these are prone for the fuel pump timing sensors failing, do you think this may be the case here or should I be running a leak of test on the injectors ?

This is the big problem with most current GDI engines. Due to modern unburned hydrocarbon (UHC) regulations, vapors from the crankcase are usually vented into the intake stream in order to prevent oil droplets from escaping through the exhaust. In a port injection engine, these droplets are ‘washed off’ the neck of the intake valve by a relatively constant stream of gasoline droplets. In a GDI engine, the gasoline doesn’t touch intake side of the valve. As a result, the droplets have a tendency to bake onto the valve and significantly reduce performance. To add to this effect, many advanced GDI engines also include exhaust gas recirculation in order to lean out the combustion mixture and reduce in-cylinder temperatures for certain combustion modes (reducing NOx emissions). Since GDI combustion has the ability to produce far more soot than premixed combustion (port injection), the problem is magnified. I took my pajero to the Mechanic and he took out close to 1kg of soot from my valves. This could be the problem. Very dangerous if one of those soot particles get loose and can damage the inside of your engine. And we talking about complete shut down of the whole engine. Also Id suggest asking a mechanic to plug the car into a diagnostic to check in the Electric Fuel pump which is located in the tank is faulty or the Mechanical Fuel Pump at the rear or the engine. Reason being my fuel pumps were faulty resulting in the engine cutting out when ever I tried to start it. I did all this and my cars 3.5l engine went from 6km/l to 9km/l!! So I would swear buy this and get it done before the engine costs you more money Grant from Zambia

Good Day. I have a mitsubishi Pajero GDI 1999 3.5 V6. I was traveling happily along at 120km/h and when I went to overtake I felt a "hit" I glanced down in time to see the orange check engine light disappear. I pulled over to double check the engine, it was running smoothly as usual. I took off again and passing 100km/h there was no "misfire" but the orange light came on. It only goes off when I either advance the throttle or back off. I tried to replicate the same. And true it came on again around 120-140. Anyone able to point me in the right direction or is it a major problem

Micro filters need changed on fuel pump at back of the engine £7 for 2 from mitsubishi very common fault simon from City of Glasgow

Hi Simon, it`s Grant again. I've replaced the Electrical Fuel Pump in the tank as I also found it was faulty and not delivering enough pressure. After that my mechanic put the car on the diagnostic and it said there was no fuel pressure to the engine and after running for about 5 seconds the engine just dies and cuts out. Could it be the micro filters or from what he said the Mechanical Fuel Pump on the rear of the engine? I`d like to know more before I start spending money on a part that doesn't need replacing.Grant from Zambia

The micro filters are inside the pump at the rear of the engine under the fuel pipes into the pump, tiny tiny filters that get blocked due to dirt in the tank, thus starving the engine of fuel, £7 for 2 from Mitsubishi. Would try this before going any further as it`s a common fault on the gdi. Let me know how you get on simon from City of Glasgow

Hi Simon. The filter in the pump at the tank is brand new as it says that microfilter is inside the actual pump, so I doubt that microfilter would be a problem. Is there any picture that may assist with the filter that`s at the engine? Just a picture with an arrow. This filter in question, is it inside the pump or along one of the lines leading to it? Grant from Zambia

They are inside the pump , disconnect the fuel lines going into the pump and the filter sit directly underneath where the fuel line connect into the pump, if you go onto the mitsubishi forum and type in shogun micro filter problems it should come up with all the info. simon from City of Glasgow

Thanks Simon. Turns out the Mechanical Fuel pump(Part #:Md 350975) was busted. Also found alot of soot at the Valves from the recirculation of exhaust gases. Car is currently having a major engine clean and the new pump being replaced. Will keep you posted if the car starts and runs properly. Grant from Zambia

Hi, I have a 55 plate 2005 2.5 tdi Shogun sport. It has developed an intermittent miss fire and sometimes severe loss of power. Last time the orange engine symbol came on. It feels like the engine has stopped even though it's still running and has no power, feathering the throttle or changing gear seems to resolve the problem for a short while, can anyone help? I've had a diagnostic done before the light came on and no error codes were found, also fuel filter at rear of engine is clear. Thanks

Answers

Hi All, I think I may have found the problem, so am posting in case it helps others. After engine fault light came on it produced an Error code 21 Engine rotation sensor( cam shaft). cam belt was changed in march before I bought the car. There are wires and a connector from the cam shaft sensor (right hand side of the engine at the front) This has a bracket that was not refixed properly and the wires were touching the engine behind the cam shaft cover with clear signs of wear on the blue wire with wire showing through. Hopefully this was all it was, a cheap and easy fix so make sure there are 2 brackets on the cam shaft cover bolt same bolt top right securing 2 electrical connectors. ;-) happy days John Hanlon from Oxfordshire

Answers

First recline the seat back towards you, prise out the round plastic trim. you should now be able to see a thin metal rod inside. You need a pair of long nose pliers to pull this rod upwards. The broken end of your pull knob should still be attatched. Unscrew this anti-clockwise. Pull up the rod as far as you can. Slot the round plastic trim over the rod and screw your new knob on about half a dozen times. Release the metal rod push the trim into place screw the knob in until tight. Martin Webster from Kent

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 2003

I went out to start my Mitsubishi Shogun Sport this morning and all I can hear is a rapid clicking from what looks to be the starter motor/solenoid. The lights come on but dim at the point of the ignition being switched on. Before I go and replace the battery with a hundred of my finest pounds I wondered if there were any other suggestions as to what could be causing this? We asked a neighbour to help jump start it but we connected the leads and still got the same clicking sound. Is there a way to test firstly the solenoid to rule that out (without a multimeter/voltmeter) and then check the starter motor? I don’t want to replace something that doesn’t need doing. Could this even be the glowplugs?

Answers

Sounds like the battery, but I’d check that the battery and starter earth leads are making good contact first. Also, take the leads off the battery and clean them in case they are not making a good contact with the terminals... Vasoline will help Nic Bridges from Suffolk

It turned out to be the battery. It wasn’t feeding enough power to kick the starter over even though it was showing ’fully charged’ on the battery charger. The strange thing was that my brother came over and we tried to start my Shogun via jumpleads from his car which has the same Exide S4 battery as the one I eventually bought from from Eurocarparts for £88. My bro’s battery wouldn’t start my Shogun even though his battery was showing higher volts at 12.9 than the new battery at 12.58! This seems to prove that jump leads ’leak’ power. What we should have done in this case was take the battery OFF my brothers car and put it directly onto mine. I reckon this would have started my Shogun no bother. Anyway it’s sorted now, so thanks for looking guys Jeannie Hazlewood-Jones from Staffordshire

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

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.

Can anyone tell me where the rear interior light switch can be found on the tailgate of my Mitsubishi Shogun Sport when it is opened? I have looked everywhere but to no avail. Thanks.

Answers

I would also like the answer to this question, as when I open the tailgate the light is intermittent, sometimes it works, sometimes it just flashes and stays off. All other door switches work fine. Denis Quinlan from England

yes the actual light itself moves try push it left or right it will turn on hope it works danny Danny Keenan from West Yorkshire

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

I have popped the front and rear fog lamp fuse/s on my Mitsubishi Shogun Sport whilst repairing the trailer lights. I can only find 2 fuse boxes with no fuses blown, one in the engine bay and the other (RHD) by the driver`s ankle. Are there other fuses or fuse boxes elsewhere in the vehicle?

Answers

do you have a tow bar fitted by any chance this will put the rear fog lights out if the wires inside are corroded. if its not that there is a relay that controls the fog lights next to the fuse box in the engine bay you should check that hope this helps danny Danny Keenan from West Yorkshire

Hi,i have had new crankshaft pulley fitted to my l200 it runs fine until you go up to 2000revs about 45mph then the pulley starts to wobble do I need a new crankshaft?

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

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your response ,but I have fixed the problem by getting rid of the truck as I didn't have the time or money to throw at it in the hope I could sort it out nick0 from Staffordshire

Glad to hear that Nick. In my case I will have to fix the truck first, before attempting to sell it. It will cost me even more money, but I think it's the right thing to do. All the best to you Daniel from Cyprus

My Shogun Sport Animal is about to clock up 120,000 miles and has always been fully serviced from new. Recently, while driving, the engine management warning light comes on and I instantly lose power for anything from a split second to 2 or 3 seconds. On a couple of occasions it has actually cut out while I am driving. The main dealers have been unable to diagnose any fault and if anyone has any ideas what it might be then please feel free to share. Thanks

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 2003

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

Thanks. I googled the symptoms in the end and emailed the garage asking them to look at the ERG Valve which was indeed the cause of the problem as you also suggest. It was the electrics associated with or attached to the valve. They replaced the whole thing. Car working like band new now. Thanks for the feedback. Sally ~Edmonds from Bath and North East Somerset
