SOURCE: I have a mitsubishi colt 2.8tdi club cab 2004

I'm guessing standard transmission? Think about getting it checked. It sounds like the splines (areas where your gears fit/mesh together inside the transmission housing) may be coming loose or for some reason are not fitting together like they should. Are you having any issues changing gears? Have you noticed any excessive play in your gear shifter? Is any fluid leaking out from the housing? I'm thinking something is loose in the housing itself or you may also get the clutch/throw out bearing checked - sometimes that can cause vibration/rattling or even a whining noise as it's going out.

COLT CLUB CAB 2.8TDI 2003 & 2008 MODELS. AFTER SERVICING 4 WHEEL DRIVE LIGHTS ON DASH ARE ILLUMINATED & KEEP FLASHING. 4 WHEEL DRIVE IS WORKING HOWEVER.


That is a coolant recovery tank not an excess water bottle. You either have air trapped in the cooling system because you failed to purge the air correctly or you have a leaking engine head gasket.

2001 2.4L. Why is white smoke issuing from engine and exhaust?


White smoke is an indication of a bad head gasket and engine coolant getting into a cylinder.
Check:
- dipstick for coolant mixed with oil
- Radiator for coolant level.
If coolant on oil or coolant level low, time for some time consuming and costly repairs.

Water reserve bottle is emptying and engine is getting how


flushing a radiator is a waste of time and money as blocked cores do not flush. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system and check for external leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gasket and cracked head. Have a flow test done on the radiator and if shows signs of blockage replace the radiator .. Always fill the radiator at the radiator cap and not the reserve bottle. The reserve bottle water will not go down until the engine coolant starts to cool so if it is going down when the engine is hot then you have a bad leak in the reservoir bottle.

First take care of the coolant problem. Short term you can fill the radiator & reserve tank with water. Run the car & watch for leaks on coolant hoses, radiator, etc. As long as the car runs ok, don't worry about oil around plugs until you get the car to run cool.

Bad head gasket & the white smoke is coolant

The O2 Sensor see the coolant or water vapor
& then PCM adds fuel

So you got coolant & too much fuel out tailpipe

Do a Combustion Leak Test where you put a plastic
container over the radiator cap area & see if the
blue fluid turns yellow indicating exhaust in coolant
from head gasket

if it isnt leaking on the ground, it's going into the engine , white white smoke from the tailpipe is definately a blown head gasket. do a pressure test on the radiator, if the pressure goes down, with no leaks on the ground, its a head gasket

usually:
white smoke is coolant leaking into the combustion chamber

blue-ish smoke is oil in the combustion chamber

black smoke is excessive fuel (running rich)

If it is white smoke, pull the oil dipstick and check to make sure your not getting coolant in your oil.
If thats okay check the compression on each cylinder to make sure your head gasket isn't leaking.

if your car is burning oil, you may need to replace your PCV valve(about $5).
As far as oil additives, try RESTORE

check the condition of the reserve tank and the hose from the reserve tank to the radiator for leaks if no leaks there have the Radiator cap presure tested . also this could be a air lock in the engine if the radiator is new with the engine running and the heater on hot observe the fluid level in the radiator with the cap off if it drops as it warms add more coolant this will purge the air .

A visible inspection of all heater & radiator hoses including the heads and radiator and placing a large piece of cardboard under the vehicle to show that there is a leak and also check the tail pipe for excessive liquid with a sweet smell and a lot of white smoke...(head gasket). Useually a mechanic does the visible and if he can not find the loss of coolent he would add a dye.
