Mitsubishi Pajeroo 2003 Np EXceed Turbo Diesel

Please anyone help.. I was driving to office from home when my Pajero NP EXCEED 2003 Turbo diesel stop all of a sudden. Engin was running fine no change in voice but my Gear was not engaging. I pulled the car to the side of the road and tried to put first Gear but no response Engine run but no power to wheels. Put in Second Gear but no result.

I toe the Pajero to a mechanic who told me there is a cluch problem and ask for $1800. I ask him to go ahead but next day he called me and says that Flywheel also damged and ask for $3500.
I have feeling that mechanic is trying to rip me off. Please advise. i ll be gratefull to u all.

    Thanks Joe you are really helpfull. But he get my signature on a document saying that i agree with this cost and he is also a authorized Mitsubishi dealer. If you think i can take legal action against him please let me know what forum i should try. I 'll be grateful to you. I am in Melbourne.

    They can say that i agree to this cost but i am totally a layman and knew nothing about this, that is why i tried the authorized mechanic but now i think they are ripping me off.

    Please advise what option i left with as when i tried to swich mechanic they ask for AU$1200 just put the parts back without any repair. So i agree to them to fix the car for 3200 as at that time i left no option. But i wana take this matter further if i have any forum left. Please waiting for your advise.

****** RED ALERT ****** RED ALERT ********

Sounds to me like he's trying to rip you off mate, If i was you I'd be switchin mechanics but hey look like you know some stuff first and put him in his place... the best thing you could do in this situation is call up your local car goods store, here in australia I know i use either Supercheap, Repco or Walkers... Dunno where you are tho or what you got around... tell them that your after a quote for a clutch/flywheel kit and get a price on that... The $1800 I can understand maybe if he originally quoted you for both clucth and flywheel as I beleive they are sold together anyhows (Don't quote me on that :P) however even if they are not the largest sum of money is going to the mechanic... for him to replace the clutch would take him maybe two hours... tops... for him to replace the clutch and the flywheel... well... they're smack bang ontop of eachother so i'd say it'd take him about two hours 5 minutes or sumthin like that... get my drift... even if he had to pay like $1000 extra for the parts (which is basically impossible... just giving you an idea)... he's still full of it.

Call up ur local spare parts dealer, get the prices for the actual parts, call him back and say somthin like... how do you expect me to pay $3000 for labor... the parts only cost $500 :P and see what he has to say, then take his arse to the leagal mob and get him hung up to dry.

Put it like this... I got mine done by a mechanic simply cuz i was working 6 days a week 13 hours a day and didnt have the spare time to do it myself... it cost me abour $920 or sumthin like that... and even then I wasnt exactly happy... thats $AUS too which may be alot less where every ur from so yeah... watch out... call around some other mechanics even to get some quotes... just dont trust that... it sounds like a bunch of bull to me... GOOD LUCK and lets see you fry his *** legaly

My 2003 pajero exceed turbo diesel A/t temp keeps coming on while i am towing a caravan so I stop /wait switch on & go then stop later & keep repeating till I reach my destination approx 2hrs...

According to what you have mentioned it seems that the weight is far heavier than normal. But as a test I would suggest you test vehicle without towing anything behind. See if there is any difference in temp. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the world of diesels....

Black smoke is produced when too much fuel is injected into the cyl. There could be several issues here, but I would start with running a diagnostic on your O2 sensors and MAS/MAP sensors.

I hope this helps

1993 mitsubishi pajero exceed-intercooler turbo 2800 diesel engine 4m40

Hi, I have a Pajero 2800 Turbo 1995 Auto. It has developed a bad oil leak somewhere around the front right hand side (from the front) where there seems to be oil spraying over the pipes, etc. Can't see it happening with the engine running and have cleaned the engine off but still can't see where it comes from. It has emptied the sump! Any ideas?
