While driving my car will lose power and go into safe mode. It will tick over but will not rev, if you turn off the engine and restart it can be fine for a few miles sometimes days, when you turn off the engine does turn over for a few seconds. It has had 3 AA visits, 2 Mitsibushi garage visits, nothing showing on any diagnostics at all. Help, my wife`s driving me crazy

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

Answers

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?

Answer this question

Dennis Ali, Trinidad and Tobago

Mitsubishi Shogun

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

Answers

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

david thomson, Aberdeenshire

Mitsubishi Shogun

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

I have an intermittent gear change problem some times it will take a long time to change and other times changes okay any ideas . Les

Answers

Hi Les. Two possible fixes, both fairly cheap and can be done at the same time. Drain the box and remove the screen filter inside the gearbox sump. I wasted money on buying a new one, don't. They can be cleaned out as they're metal mesh. Then refit the filter and sump and refill the box using original Mitsubishi automatic gearbox oil. Do not use anything else! It's not anymore expensive but it works like a charm. Henri Zermatten from South Africa
