My bet is on bad plugs or bad wires, how old are they? if more than 50k on iridiums, or 15-20k on coppers. Replace them with NGKs... autozone will try to tell you that other brands are the same, but they are NOT.

The front three are easy to get to, if you want to verify if this is your problem, pull one of the front three plugs, you should be able to tell their condition by looking, and if you replace the front three, you may even see a small increase in power... if you do, then you will know you need to do the rears... they are a bit harder.

If you go to a mechanic, they will want 300+ to change your plugs because the rears are so much more difficult because you have to take off the upper plenum to do it...

It is actually something that is pretty easy for a shade-tree mechanic to do, just be very careful once you pull off the plenum to NOT drop anything down into your cylinders... ESPECIALLY THE WASHERS FROM THE NUTS ON THE ENDS OF THE UPPER PLENUM! When you take off the 5 bolts, and the two nuts, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL 7 WASHERS and have set them aside before you remove the plenum. I know of 2 guys who had to have an engine rebuilt because they dropped washers down in there.

To remove the plenum (in addition to the 5 bolts and two nuts I talked about above) You need to remove:

  • The intake pipe from the throttle body, but you do not need to remove the throttle body itself
  • The 4 12mm bolts holding it to brackets on the back, three are on the plenum side, and one goes into the throttle body (when you put it back together, make sure you re-attach the grounding strap)
  • The EGR piping
  • The throttle cable
  • The bracket on the passenger side with the three electrical connectors.
What you are going to do is pivot the plenum up out of the way, using a piece of coat hanger to hang it from the hood where it will stay out of the way, if you don't remove the bracket with the three plugs, it will put tension on your fuel injector harness, and may break one of the fuel injector connectors.

When the rear three are back in, simply reverse the steps... Although, I HIGHLY recommend you get a service manual which has these steps as well as pictures. If you are the lease bit mechanically inclined, you should be able to knock out this job in less than two hours.

if you are wanting a good way to see if your wires are ok, pull the trim plate off the front plugs, and idle the car at night with the hood up.. if you see arcing and sparking, the plugs are bad.

Good luck,
Scott

2001 mitsubushi mirage 1.5L timing belt broke while driving. I replaced the timing belt but now it wont start. I have it all lined up.


IF you did not remove the head and replace the bent valves , it will never start. Check it out with a compression test but I am sure that with an interference engine the valves will be bent

How do you align the timing belt on 1995 Mitsubushi RVR twin cam?


there is a little notched out mark on both cam shaft gears and one notched out on both heads put those marks together there is one on the crankshaft pulley and the back timming belt cover line those 2 up depress the belt tensioner all the way in you might have to use a small allen wrench put the belt on and let the tensioner back out now make sure all your marks are still lined up and your ready.

Hi I am thinking of buying a 2005 Shogun 2.5 TD Sport. during a test drive I noticed that the clutch was slipping and they have said "they will fix it" any tips on what to look for before I...


They will have to replace the clutch as there is no adjustment it is operated via a hydraulic system,Make sure the timing belt and balance belt have been replaced as service spec. I am a retired Mitsubishi Technician and the 2.5 D engine is one of the best just bear in mind the timing belts.

How do you put on a timing belt for a 2002 pt


hi from uk could you please verify ? you intend to diy cambelt change ? also has belt been removed already ? or has belt failed/broken ? the belt change is not too difficult to change/renew and is advisable to renew belt and tensioner and the water pump too as it is driven by c/belt to eliminate having to strip down again in near future due to possible pump faiure/leaking ? belt replacement is approx120'000miles or 8 years service ? however if belt has failed ?? then as this engine is what is known as interferance this means there will be piston/s to valves contact resulting in possible valves damage/bent ? the renewal of c/belt etc should take approx 3 hrs if you are confident/tooled and would save $$$$

Replacing fan belt


1.Most modern cars have an IDLER pulley in the fan belt train of pulleys with a heavy spring on it that keeps tension on the timing belt.

2. Get a spanner/socket and put it on the nut in the middle of the idler pulley.

3.heave on the spannner and the pulley will swing up/down out of the way realeasing tension on the belt. (depending on the tensioner setup)

4. Simply remove old belt and thread new belt on. Simple.
