Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero
I have a hard time starting the Turbo Diesel 2.8 Pajero NJ, when its cold, and is starting to become a problem when warm now as well. It winds over easily but dosnt want to fire. When it does it sounds like the bottom is going to fall out. Very lumpy banging sounds. when this started the other day the first time I thought it was only a solenoid problem as it sounded like it was just free spinning not turning over the motor. since then it has been hard to start with this lumpy sound and heaps of dark smoke. It has done 350,000 but still looks new (on the outside), puts out a fair bit of dark smoke under load though, plan to change the injectors when I can. Please help with any hints?????
Excellent description of your problem, I wish more were as articulate.
I thought at first it could be a glowplug fault but if you are experiencing problems when warm and noise from crank then it possibly is related to fuel.
You are either getting too much or not enough? have you replaced your fuel filter recently? also I hope inadvertently a mix of Petrol/gasoline hasn't taken place? finally your injectors seem to me to be the root of the problem.
O'k if it were me I would change fuel filter, also during this process I would purchase a fuel system cleaner, not one you mix in the tank but one where you fill the fuel filter.
Try it if a slight improvement you may need to do it again, if sorted use a fuel conditioner/cleaner in the tank regularly to maintain fuel efficiency.
I hope the information supplied FREE! sorts your problem? press the blue button please to rate my Efforts.
