Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2di-d 2004 had timing chain replaced and some related gears due to timing chain failure. Running okay before, but now blowing out grey white smoke. Checked: Valve timing, pistons okay, cylinder head pressure tested, valve seats recut, no visible damage to pistons. Everything reassembled but blowing greyish white smoke? possibly unburnt fuel..... Fuel pump checked over but not bench tested. Has anyone had a similar problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a LW shogun equipe automatic I would like to know if there is a difference in A.B.S. pump units for automatics and manuals. Thank you

Mike, don't know for certain but they are linked to two separate systems and the type of gearbox should have no bearing on the abs features. R Evans from Caerphilly

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

Mitsubishi Shogun

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

I have just had a new key cut at Timpsons. Whilst it opens the doors and, at first starts the engine it then cuts out after a few seconds. The key I lost was a spare key from new with no fob or remote buttons on it. So I thought I'd just get a spare cut. However, it does start the engine and runs for a few seconds only. My main key still works correctly. What is the problem with my new key and are there any work-arounds for it? Many thanks S

Mechanically the 4-wheel system seems to work ok but there is no indication of what is going on. I have changed all the dash bulbs but still there is no dash illumination. Is there a fuse anywhere or sensors or could it be the dash unit itself ? I would appreciate any help at all. Apart from this, the car seems to run perfectly ok. Many thanks in advance - Gordon

Hello all. I've got a small problem that's driving me mad. I have a 2004 Shogun, 3.2 Diesel, DiD LWB, Elegance. Lovely car etc. except a while ago the radio / cassette & display unit stopped working properly, although it still plays - or is locked into, one radio station only & will play cassettes, but it will not show anything at all on the display screen, its totally blank, in addition to this the CD changer no longer works! The radio itself is a factory fitted Mitsubishi "Genuine Audio" unit. I have tried everything possible to be able to change the radio stations & get the screen back up & running but no luck yet, could a fuse or two have blown maybe? It will make my Christmas if someone knows what's the problem & maybe has an answer. Cheers

Hi all, I have a '95 3L V6 LWB pajero, on the way home from work the other day I noticed the steering got really heavy and when steering, the oil/batt and a/T lights come on. So when I got it home, I ran the engine up and turned the steering wheel and all the belts stopped. I thought I'd check and make sure it's not a loss of steering fluid, I topped this up to bring it up to the max (it wasn't below the min before) since then, all the belts look like they spin, but I still have no steering. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Thanks Nathan
