Subject : Mr
I have a Mitsu L200 1996. 2.5D 4D56 engine. slowy driving in a car
park, there was a clunt and a bang from the engine and the truck
stalled. When in gear and rocking the truck backwards and forwards
there is not movement in the engine. Taken off the sump and cannot
turn the crankshaft. Something is jammed solid somewhere! I have a
service manual. Does anybody have any thoughts as what could have gone
wrong???? Cheers in advance

Subject : Shogun Cutting Out
I have a 2003 Shogun 3.2 did. It has a problem of cutting out as soon
as you engage gear (auto box. At first the thought was fuel pump, tank
etc but all this has proved to be good. Even off a separate fuel
supply it revs, returns to tick over, but as soon as drive is selected
it dies. Any ideas please?

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 .

Subject : To change from MPH back to KPH
I have a 1998 3.5 V6 Auto LWB GLS Pajero that I brought from Australia
to the UK and the mitsubishi local dealer did some electronic thing to
change the speedo to read MPH rather than the original KPH.
I am
now taking the faithful stead back to Australia and need to change the
speedo reading back to KPH.

Can anyone tell me what
electronic wizardry is involved and where it is located. Also, how to
change the speedo back to KPH.

  • Subject : mitsubishi l200 2002
    This is a common problem and Mitsubishi knows about it and does
    nothing!OK if you look near your Turbo you will see connected to it
    the Wastegate which is lying horizontal and there is a diaphram
    connected by a rod that goes in and out when the Turbo is actuated.You
    can ether spray WD40 on it in case it is sticking. The other solution
    is if you follow the pipe down from the Wastegate to the engine you
    will see that it is connected by 2 nuts and the connection is
    oval.Make blank cover in metal and place it on top of the Gasket being
    careful not to break the fluted end of the pipe.This will then render
    the Wastegate as inoperative but will not affect your engine that you
    would notice.This in turn should stop the management light from coming
    on.I think that it also could be an electrical sensor problem giving
    the management system a false reading hence having waited for 30 secs
    thye system resets and off you go

Subject : 3.2 Shogun speedo
I have just bought a 2002 Shogun 3.2 DiD LWB- its runs like a dream
but when I was on the motorway I was following my husband doing
somewhere between 70-80 mph and the speed was reading 50-60. This
morning my son took it out with a sat nav for comparison and reckoned
it was reading about 10mph slow
Any ideas?

    What size tyres are on the vehicle? If they are larger(taller)than
    original, the rolling circumference is altered and the speedo reads
    under your true speed.
    Two complicated solutions:
    Go back to
    original size tyres;
    or
    find an electronic gizmo that alters
    the signal from the VSS (vehicle speed sensor to take into account the
    larger tyres.

    Simple solution: add 10mph to indicated speed
    and enjoy the fact that your odometer is clocking on the miles at a
    reduced rate.....
