Subject : Shudder and loss of power
My Mitsubishi Colt 2.8Tdi 4x4 double cab has an intermittent shudder
and loss of power whilst driving on open roads at speeds between
80-120 Km.This problem appears for no reason and lasts for about 1 km
then disappears.Mechanic has checked transmission,brakes,suspension
etc .but cannot find the fault since the problem did not manifest
itself in the 4 days the car was with him.Anyone experienced the same
problem?To me it sounds as though the back brakes are binding all of a
sudden but why should the shudder/vibration also affect the steering

I have a 2011 LWB Auto Diesel Elegance. Bought October last year.
Tried putting it into 4WD for the first time last weekend and it will
not go, put it into gear, roll forward front wheel lights on dash

Subject : Engine Rattling / Knocking
I have a engine knocking rattling sound when I start my Pinin 1.8GDI
2001 when cold, I start the car from cold and the revs raise a bit
high on starting and then after a minute or so the revs drop down to
normal but the engine as the sound of a diesel at first to be honest
not a petrol, I had the timing belt kit and water pump changed around
400 miles ago at my local Mitsubishi dealers and the high revs on the
first cold start happened after I had the timing belt and pump done,
the belt was done at 50089 miles and has full dealer service history
from new, once the engine has warmed up its really quiet on tick over
and the revs hold at around 800 rpm, any help would be appreciated,

Subject : engin knocking
hi I have a 04 Mitsubishi shogun sport 3ltr v6, I have a knocking
noise when I start it up from cold, when I put it into gear it gets
louder it goes away when it gets to running temp approx. 10 to 15
minuets, I took it to Mitsubishi this cost a fortune, they said it was
crank noise, I removed crank it all measured within tolerances so put
it back with new big end bearings, also changed all hydraulic cam
lifters because 2 were stuck, but to ne success when I started it up
it was still nocking the same as before, can anyone help before I go
insane, thanks in advance,

regards john,

Subject : Mitsibushi challenger 3.5gdi
Recently brought my truck,an was running good, had a little miss but
nothing to bad, drove around and seemed fine. It had an oil leak so I
put in the shop to replace the crank seals,filters, belts etc.Cost me
thousands.. Finally got it back from the shop, drove 10kms if that and
it cut out on me. Revs when high, the dropped an died.(lucky I jst
threw it into neutral). It runs goid when cold, but once warmed up and
I slow down it dies out?
Took it back to the shop, he reckoned
nothings wrong, so gave it back. Same thing happened again? So third
time now and its back there.
The mechanic has said its eitha the
air flow meter, manifold leaking or no gas getting to it?
suggestions as Im sure, he just dosent have a clue and is just taking
my money.

Subject : noise after clutch change
I have just had a garage fit a comple clutch kit in my shogun warrior
sport after the thrust bearing started to squeal. Since I picked the
motor back up I get what people are describing as a 'chatter' which
goes when I put my foot on the clutch. I spoke to the garage that
fitted the clutch and the only answer I get is that it's 'the nature
of the beast!' They all do it!! This didn't do it before so surely it
can't be gearbox related or down to gearbox oil change which was done
when the clutch was fitted. Any pointers or the smallest amount of
help would be greatly appreciated. The only thing I will add us that I
am sure it was not fitted with a Mitsubishi original part, but would
this make such a noise on tick-over? Many thanks in advance .
