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.

The car runs well until you try to accelerate hard over 2000 rpm or kick down. Engine then misfires and engine light comes on and it holds up between 3rd and 4th gears on auto box. One garage says lack of fuel pressure due to filters, another says it is a valve lifter problem. Can anyone help, as not sure which way to jump?Many thanks

Is there a certain way to remove the starter from a Shogun intercooler 2800 N Reg long wheel base? It`s been stored for a while, can bump start no problem but needs starter servicing. I just can't seem to find the bolts holding it from underneath or above?

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.

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

hi thinking of buying mitsubishi shogun 3.3 auto on 2008 has 73k will timing chane need replacing
Hello The Mitsubishi shogun 3.2 does not need the chain to be replaced as a service action. You will need to replace it only if you have noise from the chain when vehicle is cold. Change engine oil often.worm up and cool down the engine and you will not have problems. Z15a from Middlesex

Hi there, I`m looking for advice. I know a fair bit about cars and mostly do all my own work on mine but I've recently bought a high mileage Shogun Equipe van auto, cracking car but has just developed a problem with water in the oil as custard and oil in the radiator but does not overheat no matter what. I'm at present stripping down to replace the engine oil cooler as it's water cooled. I also have an erg cooler to replace. Are there any signs I should look for when I get the collet off because I`ve got everything crossed it's one of these causing the issue, not the head gasket or cracked block?

I am experiencing a loss of power when driving between 40-70 mph. The vehicle accelerates very slowly and will not exceed 60 mph. The check engine light will come on and occasionally the ASC and traction lights. Tuning off the vehicle resets whatever the problem is and it drives normally until it happens again. I have tried running a diagnostic but mechanics here in the Caribbean don't seem to know what to do. Any thoughts on what the problem might be and how it can be fixed?

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
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

My 3.2 dd Shogun engine quite "rattles" for the first few miles until warmed up then is reasonably quiet. Could this be the top chain tensioner needs replacing or an oil guide etc?

Hi, I have a 2005 (55 plate) Shogun 3.2 did elegance. When I start it from cold after sitting for several hours, it belches out white smoke for around 4-5 minutes until it gets slightly warm, then runs fine all day. Plenty of pulling power, does not use oil or water. It was suggested the pump was knackered but I`m not convinced as it runs fine and I`m not willing to spend around £1500 replacing the pump only to find this is not the problem. Any suggestions would be very helpful
