Re: 2011 Lancer wont start

check spark plugs...if your spark plugs are wet, dry them and wait for the fuel in the cylinder to evaporate, try starting once normally then start the car with the accelerator pedal to the floor. I found it is super easy to flood these engines when your battery is on its way out. as your not gettin...

Re: rust on a new gsr.....

Also factory paint is incredibly thin.
Very cheap on Mitsubishi's part.

Re: Stop seat belt chime ????

Yellow plug and sheathed cable should be airbags throughout the entire vehicle. careful with this. airbags are expensive. The more practical solution would be to just google "seat belt alarm stopper". they are like 80 cents. and are quite popular. Especially in countries that seat belts ar...

Re: CVT whine

the CVT is a pulley system with ours being metal bands. the whine or mooing sound is quite normal. if you are concerned about the health of the CVT you may want to flush the fluids in the first instance. there is a great write up with pictures from Kal on here. I have flushed mine every 45k km inter...

Re: RA vs NA?

Get or stick with a car that you can afford to drive. that includes all maintenance and even unexpected failures. The NA lancer costs are minimal to maintain and virtually nothing if you do it your self. If you do go down the RA path try to get one that is recent model years. the SST transmission wa...

Re: starter motor failure

Mitsubishi do not keep spare parts on hand except for high volume service parts, gaskets, belts, filters, washers, brake pads, hoses, etc
wreckers are a good place to find replacement components like these.

Re: Replace Instrument Cluster

Just look at the back of both clusters if the plug is in the same spot with identical pins and the unit itself fits the rough dimensions then it should plug and play.

Re: Not a nice start to the day!

RA parts are not cheap. full RA bonnet from mitsubishi after my crash was quoted $1700 that includes the discount for the actual NA bonnet which is $875 as insurance would only pay for NA bonnet. (it included all the vents, clips, paint, labor etc.) so at full retail would have costed over $2500 + p...

Re: General Insurance Question

just do it before the tow truck arrives and after the other party leaves. i think in most cases the onus is on you to inform your insurer that your vehicle needs a tow. unless your incapacitated in which case the police will move your vehicle. you technically have 24 hours to log a police report and...

Re: Maintainance Change To Fully Synthetic Oil. When?

Probably the best way of explaining. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYkg0oDUXs8 The general consensus is that you should change your oil and filter often and not focus too much on what brand or type of oil providing it meets or exceeds the manufacturers specifications in your handbook. remember thi...

Re: Lost key transponder

Mitsubishi are correct. the transponder chip (the model number is etched on the chip but you need a magnifying glass to read it) itself can be bought for around 20cents from china however it needs to be programmed with your vehicle ignition system. the tools required to program these transponders va...
