Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. There are test that need to be performed the find out the cause. The light will stay on until the problem is solved.

Interesting i have a chariot in Kenya just had an engine overhaul, however i am considering a complete engine change any ideas where i can get a new engine or an engine i can interchange


Chariot (aka was in three generations, each with multiple choices of engine. Mitsubishi Space Wagon, Mitsubishi Nimbus and Mitsubishi Expo, Dodge and Plymouth Colt Vista Wagon, Eagle Vista Wagon, Hyundai Santamo and Mitsubishi Savrin
Be careful to get the right engine for your vehicle.
You can try Powertrain Products, remanufactured engines, they may ship to Kenya and have good prices. (not sure why you want to swap an overhauled engine for another one, but that's your business.)

My mitsubishi chariot engine light has been on ever since i brought my car 6 months ago why is this? the light does not go off at all


Usually check engine light is on when there is a sensor telling the computer that something is wrong. Some auto parts stores will check your check engine light for free and give you the code, if your vehicle is newer than 1996. If you get the code and tell me what your vehicle is, I may be able to further assist you.

I have a 98 mitsibishi chariot grandis gdi, it smokes badly while warming up but then gets less while driving. The smoke is bluish white.


I think it is blue oil smoke that you are describing, indicating internal engine wear of piston rings and/or valve guides leaking excessive oil.

Usually, this occurs to high mileage vehicles, or vehicles which haven't had regular oil changes every 3,000 mi. for the life of the engine.

Check engine light comes on and stays on until vehicle is turned


does sound like your coil pack is failing. be that as it may if you live in the states stop in at autozone... they will scan the codes for free and that should narrow down what the problem is.

Vehicle smoking


If your car has blue smoke, then that is oil that is burning. You might have a worn out engine or bad valves. To check the condition on your engine, you should get a engine compression check. Was your engine oil level checked for proper oil levels?
