Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero

1 Answer

Trouble starting, blows smoke, high revs, fuel leak out of exhaust.

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero, it starts up perfectly first thing in the morning, but at times it won't start after being driven around, and we end up getting it started by clutch starting it and just yesterday once again we had to clutch start it, once it got going we found a trail of fuel following the 4wd and found the fuel was dripping out of the exhaust. It also blows alot of grey/blue smoke. It's turning simple things like getting fuel and groceries into a challenge

First push starting it was bad. sounds like a stuck exhaust valve. and I think you had a dead ignition coil causing 1 cylinder not to fire,and it was fill with gas ,and then you forcing it to start did more damage

    I had a simular prob and it turned out to be the fuel relay sensor in the ecu and it was holding fuel input full open all the time. Started first pop in the morning but just kept flooding it after that, instead of clutch starting it hold throtle to the floor and turn the key, this un floods it. If that works get your ecu repaired.

SOURCE: hi i have a mitsubishi pajero enjin light came on

If you have an auto zone nearby have them check the codes probably a sensor went bad .Im thinking a map sensor but without testing its only a guess Start with the last code read first than work back if their are multible codes.

SOURCE: sputtering during idle blue smoke

You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.

It could be other things. White smoke = oil burning
Worn Rings for example?
A compression test would detect worn rings.

Try not to assume an easy fix before you buy it.
Make sure the price is right as white smoke = bad :)

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

4d56 Pajero Turbo Diesel, blow's alot of smoke under load. Replaced airfilter and using injector additive atm. Still blows a heap of smoke.


If your car is fitted with Manifold Air Pressure sensor (MAP) check that is operating OK. Sometimes if this is as at fault it can send the wrong signal that the engine is running lean and the engine computer (ECU) in turn compensates by injecting extra fuel. The clouds of smoke are unburnt fuel so not only does it look bad but it is wasteful/costly. The fault on a MAP can evolve slowly and therefore evades the computer diagnostics check for some while before being picked up. Also on the list of things to look at are:- 1) the mass air sensor on the air filter ducting 2) the EGR exhaust gas recirculation valve (perhaps needs a thorough clean) 3) the differential pressure feedback exhaust (DFPE) sensor - lies upstream of the EGR but if faulty can combine to lead to errors in fuel injection quantities.

I have 92 pajero iwas driving home when temp


Your coolant all leaked out, or your thermostat locked shut, and the engine seriously overheated. Some makes will not start again until the thermostat has been replaced (the Japanese have always been too cute for their own good, and program such things into the vehicle computer) and the computer reset, and sometimes this simply kills the engine altogether. Proper maintenance is a must!

We are looking at buying a 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero 3.0l EFI. It is blowing out white smoke soon after start up suspected blown head gasket/s. How easy would it be to replace it and get timing right?


Relative to other engines with the same size, the degree of difficulty is the same since most types of vehicles has the timing gear/chain facing the radiator. As long at you know where the timing lines line up and you should be good to go.
