Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
The manual state that "ECO" light will illuminate when eco-mode is activated. Since i brought my car until now, the light never illuminate also~ So, i hope that u can help me to solve this question or explain something about eco-mode. Thank you =)
Hi Wai Lun, I'm just guessing here, but suspecting that your vehicle has an automatic gearbox? There should be a soft touch switch which controls the operation of the gearbox. I think that one position of that switch will engage the economy option. Once selected, it operates in relationship to how hard you push your foot on the accelerator pedal. In other words if you drive hard you'll use more fuel. regards John

Eco or PWR are lights that should be on one at the time (depending on what driving mod you choose. the button locates on the gear box. it has nothing to do with ideling. what you must check is the air filter and the whole intake pipe. make sure everything fits and nothing loose. check the cables too. make sure all wiers are fully pluged in. if the problem continues check on missfiering. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TOQJIW19C8 after if nothing helps the cr probably needs a tune up.

SOURCE: ECO light on at low speeds
Yes, that is completely normal.
The cylinder deactivation feature is designed to activate based on a combination of throttle position, and engine load. It really has nothing to do with the speed of the vehicle.
Enjoy your ride!

It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to check the engine oil level periodically (preferably, at least every other fill-up). The oil pressure light does not illuminate until there is practically no oil pressure at all. Most vehicles illuminate the light at somewhere around 7 PSI (49 Kg/cm2). This is low enough to cause severe damage to most modern engines. The engine needs about 20 PSI (1.4 Kg/cm2) to keep the bearings properly lubricated and cooled.
The light is not designed to tell you when you are low on oil. That is what the oil dipstick was created for. These lights are usually only good for letting you know when your engine is is so low on oil that is has most likely already sustained some damage. It is there to let you know to get off of the road IMMEDIATELY.
My question would be this: When was the last time you had an oil change? How long since the oil change did the engine go without the oil level being checked? A new engine will use more oil than one that has 50,000 miles because the piston rings can take that long to get seated in. That car only holds 4 U.S. quarts (3.8 L). On a new 4 cylinder engine, it is not unusual to use 0.5 quarts (0.47 L) every 1000 miles. At that rate, it would only take 7000 miles to get to the point you described (0.6 L left in engine).
Is it your fault? I do not have all the facts with which to make that call. All I can say is look at the information above and you decide.
