Mitsubishi Shogun

Just wondering if anyone has an answer to my problem? I moved the throttle sensor to take the revs up slightly as the car kept stalling once it had got warm. For some reason the revs went up but also went into what seemed like an a limp mode. Now when I press the accelerator it will only go up to 2-3000 revs. When I plugged it into a diagnostic reader it came up as the throttle sensor - thinking this would be an easy fix I got hold of a second hand one but the engine remained the same - between 2-3000 revs. I have also had a visit from an auto electrician and he put it on the computer and came up with the same codes as I had. He didnt put an amp meter on any of the circuits but said it would have to go into the workshop. I have been through a Haynes manual but I am still non the wiser. I feel as if this should have an easy fix but just cant seem to find what it is. I have spent £2-3k on the car this year alone and feel that I do not want to spend more on it which is why I am slightly hesitant about putting it in a garage. Please help?

Mitsubishi Shogun

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 2.5TD Warrior 2003. I have a starting problem with my car. I thought initially that it was a battery problem - for two years my car has done four miles to work and four miles back a day, with intermittent voyages in between and at weekends. I know this isn't enough for the engine. My locks, when I locked the car (with the key) would flick on and off and on and off a few times before finally closing the doors. I try to start it, and it now takes a progressively longer time to turn over before firing up the engine. Starter sounds good and the battery is at 12V on the dash screen. I have changed glowplugs within the last month. This morning I tried to start it and got to the end of the street. I put my foot on the accelerator and it crept forward - there was no power at all. Then it idled, dropped below a 1000 revs and simply cut out. Thankfully, nothing was coming towards the junction I was emerging from. I started it again, after a good minute of starter trying to kick in the engine fired up again. I managed to get it back home by basically rolling backwards into my street. The power steering was working and I got back onto my drive. The same thing happened again. It idled, then dropped below 1000 revs and cut out. Does anyone have any pointers? I am thinking of changing the fuel, oil and air filters this weekend, and then following troubleshooting routes from there.

Answers

Update. We have changed the oil filter, the air filter and the fuel filter. The fuel in the filter was emptied into a clear glass bottle and once it had settled we could see what looked like orangey cloudy water in it, which separated from the fuel. Loosening off the injectors, we could also see froth coming through the threads when we managed to get the engine running. I can only presume this is bad fuel, though I do not know where I purchased it from. We undid the fuel tank plug and drained the fuel tank into a bowl. This looked totally clear, good quality fuel. No separation and clean. This went back into the tank. After all this, we started the engine and it took a while to start, turning over and over until it caught. If we kept the revs up there was no issue but as soon as it got to 1000 revs, it idled badly and chugged to a stop. We'd managed to clear the new fuel filter and it was running clean and clear diesel. The injector ports were also running clear and clean diesel, so we closed them up entirely. We started the engine again and she started up quicker than last time and slightly higher revs kept her going for a little time but eventually, even at higher revs, she would idle and then die, even with the accelerator flat to the floor, which should of course, rev the engine wildly. I've had to close up for the night. Cold, wet, tired and hungry. Throw a spider at me and my hell is complete. Does anyone have any pointers on what could be my next step? Jeannie Hazlewood-Jones from Staffordshire

There's so many possibilities, you really need to get a scanner to read your fault codes and write them all down before you clear them otherwise you'll faff around for ages just throwing parts at it. It could be related to crank and/or cam sensors but I'd say that sticking turbo waste gate is a possibility and/or the MAF sensor. Check the waste gate actuator and operating lever also try disconnecting MAF sensor which will put the ECU into default mode and see if that improves. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Hi please help! I love my mitsubishi pejaro 2001 For approx 3 months off and on the engine light comes on and the car goes into frog like mode and if you don't keep the revs up it jumps forwards is the only way of describing it! I pull over disconnect the battery and all is good till the next time! She has been in the garage but they can't find a fault It always happens when I'm in a high gear and maybe pulling up to roundabout. If I go 1st or 2nd generally ok it feels like there is not enough fuel getting to the engine! I have no idea but it is awful travelling with 2 young kids and having to pull over where ever and disconnect the battery to drive again! Please please any advice thank you xx

Mitsubishi Shogun

Hi. My 2009 automatic Shogun won't excelerate properly. One minute it works fine in automatic, kicks down properly, but then another time it kicks down a gear and just won't accelerate, just flat in a low gear but revs won't pick up. If I change down manually to a lower gear from say 5th to 4th one minute it will accelerate fine, then the next time you change down its just flat, won't go. I did find that if I lifted my foot off the accelerator 2 or 3 times, pumping it, it will sometimes suddenly go, as if something has finally got the message your'e calling for more speed. It has just had a recent service and no fault codes found. i did mention this problem but it did not show up then, typical. I was told there is some sort of ECU insiode the gearbox that might show a problem, but they have to drop the gearbox out to get to it. Any suggestions ? any advice appreciated.

RW, Nottinghamshire

Mitsubishi Shogun

Hi any advise / help would be appreciated. My 2012 3.2 SG3 looses it's throttle response until it crawls up to around 10mph then kicks down and takes off. This happened once about 18 months when the vehicle was under warranty, we took the vehicle in to the dealer they tested it but couldn't get it to replicate the fault & no faults where stored. This has happened twice this week and due to no acceleration it's quite a dangerous fault when pulling out of junction, traffic islands etc. Points noted when the fault occurs It happens when the vehicle is up to operating temperature If you drop it in to neutral the engine revs normally, but put it back in to drive or manual selection the revs go. Once you get rolling and get up to approximately 10mph the revs come in aggressively then it performs normally until you come to stand still again for junctions traffic lights etc. It makes no difference if you switch off & re-start the engine, it was noticed that the normal warning alarms do not sound when switching the ignition on as normal. Once the vehicle stands overnight / cools down it performs normally. The fault is intermittent, my thoughts is that it could be some sort of transmission sensor fault? the speedo etc read ok, no engine light or warning lights illuminate when the vehicle faults. Regards RW

Answers

hi sorry to hear this, just a question did you manage to get this fixed. my 2011 3.2SG3 is currently in a dealer garage being looked at and I have the same intermittent problem, however they cannot find a fault. Did yours get sorted and do you know what it was so I could maybe point them in that direction, any help would be much appreciated its so dangerous I had to stop my wife driving it with my 2 girls in the car as you didn't know what it was going to do. regards, hope to hear soon.

Hi I've got a problem with my Shogun .1st little problem is the hand brake light will stay on for a few miles after taking hand brake of and second problem is it's started dropping its revs .it will start fine but when u try pull of its like it goes limp and has no power then will cut out.when u try start it the revs will be really low again u till u pump accelerator few times .it started doing it every now and again but now its getting really bad the 2wheel drive green lights have started flashing aswell ready pull my hair out I'm gutted I live my shogun

Answers

Firstly, on my old Mk 2 1996 V6 3lt LWB (Just part Xd two days ago for a 2004 3.2 Warrior) I had illuminated handbrake light for a short distance then it would go out. At first I simply added a just a thimble full of brake fluid to the Master Brake Cylinder top up bottle and this cured the problem for about 6 months at a time. After that it became more prevalent but not urgent. Eventually I paid £54.00 for a complete brake inspection which I was told revealed nothhing wrong despite me beginning to pump the brakes. I believe that I had a Master Brake Cylinder seal errosion problem as I had experienced the exact same thing two decades before hand on an old Ford Granada. Ive part Xd the car now so never had to deal with it but on my Granade it cost about 50p for a new rubber seal albeit the garage tried to convince me to buy a complete new MBCy which I rejected out of hand. Your second problem, in the build up to needing a new battery I experienced similar symptons. My local Mitsubishi dealer tried to talk me into having the same vehicle re-chipped costing stupid money. Luckily my battery then failed and I got a new heavy duty Calcium battery from Halfords on offer for about £104 with a four year warranty on it (still valid for another year as we speak). No further issues. It is my belief that the Shogun is a brillaint vehicle which alerts you by design to weaknesses in its systems so far in advance of complete failure that you feel obliged to take it into a dealer to sort when infact there is no need to stress about it. Hope you get this, enjoy. Jack from Lancashire

Sorry, I forgot to answer your third worry. Don't worry. I think your battery is on its way out or you simply need to to shift your super select in and out of 4x4 or low and high range a couple of times. Remember this.... No true 4x4 should ever engage 4 wheel drive unless it needs to do so i.e. on bad terrain. Never ever use 4 wheel drive on a dry safe summer drive if you are on a tarmaced road. Jack from Lancashire
