The sounds like the cluch went bad. the smell and the reason you cant shift gears is due to the clutch. the clutch is burning and thats the smell, when the clutch gets low and slips it smells and sometimes it just blows apart due to wear. have the clutch checked and you will find it needs replacing. hope this is helpful have a good day.

Your car is in failsafe mode. I would definitely have a check at the computer, normally you would smell beuning at the compuer. They are known to have faulty/leaky trnasistors.

By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?

SOURCE: someone took the fuses from my car. I can not

The best solution here is for you to go to the Auto Zone or other auto parts store and purchase a Chiltons repair manual on your vehicle. In that will be a diagram showing the fuses and teh locations of each. This is assuming that you don't have the owners manual on the vehicle., the diagram is in there as well. Both Diagrams will show fuse location and what type of fuse to use.

Is this an automatic trans?Does this mean that it just revs in 1st or drive unti it goes into 2nd?Shifts are determined by having sufficient trans fluid in.That the internal valve body is functioning,that external shift solenoids are working,and that the speed sensor on the trans as well as the TPS on the throttle body are working correctly.apart from this they do wear out internal parts and then do these types of things.
Check the transmission fluid level while idling in park with the handbrake on.also if the fluid smells burnt and/or looks dark,it is time for a rebuild.Could you supply some more info,what was the trans like on last drive prior to fault,did it just start up and do this or did it begin while driving?

Automatic transmission not shifting gears


Check the level and condition of the transmission fluid and if necessary the transmission fluid. Check the condition of the gears within the transmission (cracked, damaged) and change the gear cluster if necessary.

2002 mirage tranny delays shifting does not slip.Tranny fluid is full.Has 150,000 miles on it.


Hi there,

Mitsi transmissions are programmed for smooth gear changing and a brief delay is normal.

However, if the duration of the delay exceeds 2secs, then there is an internal problem with the transmission.

You need to run the diagnostics on your vehicle (the PCM controls both Engine + Trans electronics) which will determine where the fault is ocurring.

Most likely causes can be:

- Abnormal underdrive clutch pressure
- Malfunction of the underdrive solenoid valve
- Malfunction of the inderdrive clutch
- Malfunction of the valve body (which houses all the valves & soleniods etc)
- Malfunction of the idle position switch

Your Mitsubishi dealership can use their MUT-II scan tool query the solenoid.

Fluid - condition of fluid is critical for acceptable operation:

1) ONLY USE MITSUBISHI ATF FLUID - never use other brands.
2) Check fluid colour - must be nice RED colour. If black, then fluid is bad - change fluid.
3) If fluid smells burnt, then fluid should be replaced (burning smell can be a sign of internal damage).
4) Fluid level should be checked while trans is warm & idling in Park.
5) NEVER overfill the trans - overfilling can cause the excess fluid to foam, causing shifting problems.
6) Although manufacturer recommends changing fluid every 70,000 miles, it is always safer to maintain clean fluid by changing every 30,000 miles.

Cheers,

Your clutch is slipping. If you hold your brakes, can you release the clutch without the engine killing? Do you smell the burning at this time? Then you need to replace your clutch. Do it soon before it damages the flywheel.
