Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero

2 Answers

Occasional acceleration power cutting and vibrating engine.

Please help!
I imported the short wheel base Petrol GDi 3.5l V6 2001 model into Botswana. At the most unpredictable times - sometimes when I start the car, the engine vibrates the whole car and the engine amber logo ppears on the dashboard, then, on dirving off, the car will seem to be short of power and tends ****. This goes on for different lengths of time.
Sometimes I manage to temporrily fix the problem by repeatedly putting my foot all the way down the accelerator, which uses up a lot of petrol.
Different mechanics have tried changing items along the fuel line (fuel pumps etc) this has not helped.

Hi Jim, The GDI is unfortunately a new design concept in automotive engineering. We have plenty problems with them in Zambia. they tend to carbonize very quickly and this gives rise to injection problems. The GDI injects a very small amount of fuel when compared to the indirect injection engine and this means the njectors become fouled very easily. The high pressure secondery module fitted to the top of the engine can give the problem you're facing as can a defective fuel filter and the high pressure pump in the tank. The oxygen sensor is definitely suspect as my friend pointed out. Make sure that the crankshaft and cam shaft sensors are operating correctly too. Regards John

Occasional when I accelerate it makes a vibrating noise. I cant feel it but def can hear it.


All engines vibrate. The engine and transmission mounts are what helps you from feeling it . I would wait till it gets worse, Like feeling it all the time. Even at idle, in gear.

Hello, my car type is mitsubishi pajero- GDI, it happen sometimes has got heated and then going off. aim make some services like changing of plugs, checking fuel and coil but the problems still...


Damas, If this vehicle is a japanese or singapore import then your fault will probably be in the hi pressure fuel pump, if it is a v 6 mounted on the back of the engine in the Vee....NOT THE LOW PRESS PUMP IN TANK.. ,remove the pump and you will find small funnel micron fuel filters in the inlet and outlet's of the pump (3)...... be care full how you remove them.... use an "easy out" used for removing broken bolts in holes,of the correct size, and when removed..... THROW AWAY......... refit the pump and it should be bob's your uncle and off you go and enjoy the vehicle....... Steve Botswana.

Poor /no acceleration


THE GDI ENGINE SUFFERS FROM EXTREME "COKING" - DEPOSITS THAT STICK AROUND THE VALVES AND PREVENT PROPER OPERATION, RESULTING IN POWER LOSS. REPAIR CAN BE EXTENSIVE AND COSTLY ESPECIALY IF YOU START TO HEAR A RATTLE ON IDLE. THE FIRST STEP I WOULD SUGGEST IS, TRY USING FUEL ADDITIVES SUCH AS WURTH FUEL/GAS/VALVE TREATMENT THESE ADDITIVES ARE QUITE CAPABLE OF CLEARING OR CLEANING CONTAMINATED PARTS IN TIME.

My 1998 Volvo does the same sometimes. Better petrol helps for me, these engines like the higher octane petrol. My car does not like the BP petrol at all for example.
