SOURCE: Where is the starter located on a 1989 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

See Figure 1
The starter motor is located on either the lower right hand (passenger) or left hand (driver) side of the engine, bolted to the transmission housing with two mounting bolts.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Removal and installation of the starter motor will require access from both the top and bottom of the engine compartment.
0900c1528005438d.jpgFig. 1: Common starter location and installation-the starter is a fairly heavy component, be careful when lifting it out of the vehicle
  1. Apply the parking brake and block the rear wheels.
  2. Raise the front of the vehicle with a floor jack, using the proper frame positions.
  3. Support the vehicle on the frame or transmission crossmember, with jackstands. Before working under the vehicle, make sure the vehicle is stable on the jackstands. If it is not, reposition the jackstands so that it is.
  4. Label and disconnect all wiring connectors at the starter.
  5. Slowly loosen the two starter mounting bolts until they are loose enough to take out by hand. Since the starter motor is uncommonly heavy for its size, it is important to support it well with one hand, while removing the two mounting bolts with the other hand. If the starter is not adequately supported, it could fall causing injury. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Clean the surfaces of the starter motor flange and the flywheel housing where the starter attaches.
  1. Reinstall the starter and install the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 16-23 ft. lbs. (22-31 Nm).
  2. Connect the wiring to the starter, making sure the terminals and connectors are clean and tight.
  3. Lower the truck to the ground
  4. Connect the negative battery cable

SOURCE: wheres the fuel filter on my 1987 mitsubishi mighty max

Hi Paulvilla13,

I'm not sure if your '87 is the same as my '88 or not, but mine is located just in front of the tank. I also have to remove the rear driver-side wheel to get at it.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.

SOURCE: EGR Valve needs cleaning or replacing

The link below is a diagram of the EGR valve. Looks like a mushroom with vacuum lines attached.


  • Label and disconnect the hoses from the valve. Carefully loosen and remove the retaining bolts, remembering that they are probably heat-seized and rusty. Use penetrating oil freely.
  • Remove the valve and clean the gasket remains from both mating surfaces.
  • Inspect the valve for any sign of carbon deposits or other cause of binding or sticking. The valve must close and seal properly; the pintle area may be cleaned with solvent to remove soot and carbon.

  • I hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

    SOURCE: No Fuel??? Not starting.

    You have fuel flow but the question now is are the injectors pulsing. Given the year of the truck my gut says your ECU, Engine Control Unit, has failed. Mitsubishi had issues with the capacitors in their early 90's cars, trucks SUVs. I have been thru this with two monteros and one 3000GT, very common. To check your injectors rent a set of NOID lites from Autozone our such. Remove an injector plug and itstall a noid light. Turn the engine over, if no flash, no pulse. Remove the ECU and carefully open it up. Look for the capacitors, there should be 3, look under the capacitors on the board; if there is a grease like substance, often time it has a green hew to it, then the capacitor(s) have failed. It may be possible to replace the capacitors or simply purchase a rebuilt ECU. Be ceratin the MD number matches on the new unit.
    Please let me know your results and if this had assisted you.
    Thanks, Tom

    Where is the fuel filter located on a 1989 mitsubishi mighty max

    the mechanical fuel pump for a 87 2.0 Mitsubishi is located in the middle of the intake manifold.

    The manual says you can remove it without taking off the intake manifold but it is tricky.
