Answer this question

Collin Mangenah, Zimbabwe

Mitsubishi Shogun

I live in Zimbabwe (being Zimbabwean) and my car is a pre-owned Mitsubishi Pajero/Shogun 3.5 V6 GDI Exceed that I imported from Japan. Yesterday afternoon I started the car and it happily responded as it always does. However on trying to engage drive the gearbox would not respond which to the reverse or drive gears. I switched off and tried again to no avail. My wife (only concerned about getting to her favourite Food Lovers Market store) ordered me to move over and restarted the car. Upon revving the engine a bit the gearbox responded and we were on our way. There were no problems except once when I was accelerating and I felt and unusual lunge forward as it changed gears. This morning the same problem recurred although it went away after applying a bit of pressure on the accelerator. Please help diagnose my problem. At this point I donot want to take my car to a workshop yet as they usually oblige by coming up with far fetched theories that sometimes entail stripping the car only to acknowledge later that it wasnt necessary. From your experiences what could be the source of the problem. Could it be a minor issue requiring only an ATF oil change or something?

Mitsubishi Shogun

hi everyone, I think I have big trouble. I have a 2001 shogun 3.2 eclipse. When I was out it just cut out for no reason, got it towed back and found that the management fuse had blown, replaced it and it blew again, tried again, my mate, bless him!! pushed the fuse terminals together , a lot of smoke came from below around the starter motor area. I was told that the rear of the injector pump was the cause, with the electric being earthed. I would like some advice about this and do it myself. I cannot see that the pump is at fault. I hope that you can help . Thanks Richard

Hi my pajero 2.8 td is overheating after approx. 15 miles ,The rad is pushing the coolant into the expansion tank but doesn't sook it back, changed the thermostat and waterpump but no difference been told it could be the head gasket but no water in oil or oil cap ,no white reek from exhaust and only bubbles out rad when it is overflowing when engine has been idling for some time no bubbles when water level is below hose to expansion tank at very top of rad,viscous fan and heater work fine could it be an airlock in cooling system stopping coolant circulation or am I clutching at straws and more likely head trouble there does seem to be a bit of back pressure after a while in top rad hose and doesn't seem to be any leeks that I can see is it worth trying to flush cooling system and taking rad out to backflush and new rad cap or am I resigned to looking at gasket and head its just that I heard the 2.8 was notorious for airlocks ( help ) cheers Darren

Hi. The oil pressure light on my 1996 2500TD SWB GLS Shogun occasionally comes on for a short period after starting and then goes off after about 1 mile of driving. Checked oil level and seems OK. Is this an indication of oil pump problems or could it be something less serious? The car has done about 90K miles and was serviced about 6 months ago. Cheers.

Pat, Bedfordshire

Hi, the dash light code P0299 (low turbo pressure) comes on, but intermittently. Sometimes the car goes into limp mode, sometimes not. It can be temporarily fixed by a diagnostic tool or by stopping/starting the car. It has been checked twice with different tools, today no code is showing. BUT the engine is jumping/missing when the accelerator pedal is depressed in neutral and when the rev needle is between 2 and 3, indicating some underlying problem, but what? We don't want to be running to and from to a garage with nothing sorted. Any ideas please?

Hi please can anyone help. I was driving my 2005 shogun when there was a horrible burning smell and car filled with some smoke. The orange light in the middle of the 4wd started flashing then 100 yards later all lights on dashboard came on and it cut out. Green flag think it could be electrical but two people cannot get computer read out. It turns over but does not start. I have electronic diagnostic man coming next week. Someone has suggested possibly fuel pump or blown the ecu. Any comments please.

Answer this question

ian Pippen, Caerphilly

Mitsubishi Shogun

Can someone please help me out, I've got a sshogun equip 3.2 lwb. A week ago an alarm started to sound with the abs light on on the dash. Then after a short time stopped. Yesterday I decided I had better check the brake fluid level which I did. The hand book said to pump the brake which I did before starting the engine. To try to assess where the level marks were I gave reservoir a little shake. Then when I started the engine not only did the alarm sound with the abs light on the dash but the brake is really hard to push down as if the servo have lost the vacuum . under the reservoir I'm told isn't a servo, it's the abs. The servo i can't find and the abs reservoir is the only thing I touched, apart from pumping the brakes with the engine off. Now not only have i got an alarm going but got no brakes as such. Can someone please tell me what could have gone wrong and what i can do to rectify the problem, and where the servo is if there is one. Ian from Bargoed
