Hi I have just purchased a 2005 shogun 3.2 did auto. After driving it for about 50 miles the automatic oil temperature light comes on. I stop let it cool down then the light goes out and drive again. This keeps happening until the nuetral indecator light starts to flash and then the gear box sticks in 3rd gear (limp mode) any ideas what the fix is? Thanks Darren

Limp mode when hot only ! My short wheel base Shogun goes into limp mode when warm, it starts fine when cold but enters limp mode and has NO ECU CODES whatsoever. Strangely if you hold the key on ignition after firing up for a few seconds it starts ok even when warm !! In with a misty dealer now who can't find the problem - they have already sent ECU away for testing but no fault found ! Any ideas ??

Hi, the air conditioning on my 2013 Mitsubishi Shogun SG3, 3.2 5 door has stopped working. The lights on the controls still come on when the unit is switched on and the air comes out, but it does not get cold. i can not see any signs of a leak in the engine bay, nor have there been any leaks under the vehicle. I took it to a garage and was told that it sounded as though the compressor was not engaging. Any help would be gratefully received. Thank you.

140k miles shogun DID LWB suddenly my engine management light came on. Noticed temperature gauge was on high. Took it to a garage who said there was no water in the engine yet the bottle was full. Garage told me I needed a new fuel pump as the injector was on its way out. Still able to drive the car but only short distances before light comes on and car starts to miss. Sounds to me like there is an issue with the cooling system or pump rather than the fuel injection system. Should I get a second opinion from another garage. Car has only done 146 thousand kilometres. Nothing for a shogun. Answers and guidance appreciated. Thanks

Hi I have a pajero 3.5 V6 GDI. The problem is at the first startup of the day it sounds if the vehicle is not running on all 6 cylinders it is like that for about 2 minutes until it picks up heat, it doesn't mater what time of day it is. I have already replaced the pin coils and the maf. Any advice please wat els I can look at. And there is also now fault codes.

Answers

Hi, check your external fuel filter located near the fuel tank, check your intake manifold it could be sooty. Also get all the 6 petrol injector nozzles tested and get to know their volumetric output. If bad get them serviced by a proffesional. I recently experienced that and after a thorough fuel system repair including the main GDI pump repair kit the car is awesome!! ROBERT from Kenya

In behalf of a friend who is not computer literate. Got a problem with auto box. Light kept coming on so had oil checked, all black so had box flushed and new oil put in. Was fine for a couple of days, then light came back on jumping gears, so checked box again and oil is all black again. What are my best options??

Answers

When you change the oil you only change about half the total quantity the box takes because the torque converter holds a considerable amount itself along with the transmission oil cooler plus what lies in valve blocks, manifolds etc. You could try dropping the oil pan and gauze filter to clean it all out letting it drip overnight before rebuilding with new gaskets and fluid but you may be better taking it to someone who has the equipment to completely flush out the system with a rig.

Chris Styles, Hertfordshire

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.
