Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Th mitsubishi magna manual, for some time it was very hard to change gear and the clutch was needed to be all the way in to shift and it was slipping also the was a distinct burning smell, coming to the end of the time it was driveable it would take more revs to get power out of the car and as id shift black smoke/dust would come out from under the car, now i put it in first release the clutch it doesnt move even whilst accelarating, while its running i can put i t in any gear without the cluch and it doesnt stall. Ive bleed the clutch fluid no change and as the gear stick is moved you can see its still moving in the engine bay as it should, whats the problem ?

Auto gear box in a magna is not working

Hi I'm Peter, What kind of transmission oil did you use? According to what I have found from a Mitsubishi Master tech , here is his response and I have to believe it. As a Master tech myself my wife had a Galant and I was so glad the day it was totaled in a wreck. I had to change brake pads on that car at 17K miles. A brand new freaking car not even broke in and already having repairs. But back to you DO NOT drive it any more. I would drain it and hope I didn't find chunks of anything. Anyway here is what he said....I've been a tech for a long time and I've never seen more problems with vehicles using supposedly equivalent ATF than with Mitsubishi. I don't care what the bottle says, use only Mitsu SP4 in your vehicle or you will have issues. There are special friction modifiers that adhere to the torque converter clutch (and all the clutches for that matter) and without them you will have noticeably reduced smoothness. It won't "blow up" your transmission, it just won't shift or run like it should. Spend the extra bucks and get the mitsu fluid

Why is my gear shift so hard to move??

I believe your clutch is not disengaging fully. When this happens it may be hard to get into first gear but subsequet shifts are easier due to the fact the vehicle is moving. You probably have a hydraulic clutch system which is low on fluid or may have air in the system. Before shifting into first gear or reverse try pumping the clutch pedal 5 or 6 times then shifting, if it goes into gear easier after this then you probably have air in the system, it can be bled similar to bleeding brakes. If this doesnt work you might be low on fluid, or have a bad master or slave cylinder.

Can't change gear and very bad smell on 1988 mitsubishi mirage

The sounds like the cluch went bad. the smell and the reason you cant shift gears is due to the clutch. the clutch is burning and thats the smell, when the clutch gets low and slips it smells and sometimes it just blows apart due to wear. have the clutch checked and you will find it needs replacing. hope this is helpful have a good day.

Each time i manually change gears it slips and then respond so i believe that my car transmission is not well. what should i do. this is the second time that my transmission fails

When your gears slips, it could be a few things. It could be a worn linkage, transaxle may be loose, shift link does not move freely, could be a worn shift fork, or a gear bearing retainer loose or broke. You could have dirt between the clutch cover and engine. I would check these first before you look at the transmission. Make sure your transmission fluid is level though. It may need changed with a new filter.

I have to force the shifter into gear (all) or I can not get it to shift at all. the clutch level fluid is at max. the clutch does feel soft. Once in gear I can shift thru the gear, but hard. Some...

If you can put it into gear easily without the engine running but it grinds or is hard to put into gear when the engine is running then the clutch has not fully disengaged. If the clutch does not slip once you are moving then the clutch is not likely the problem. Instead you will have a faulty clutch slave cylinder and/or clutch master cylinder. The best thing to do is have both replaced and be sure that they are properly bled of all air. If the clutch does slip then it will of course need to be replaced, and be sure to have the pressure plate re-surfaced! Then there is the possibility, albeit rare, that all three need replacement.

Trans slips between 2nd and 3rd shift

MV could be the problem. Always work thru issue before buying ANY can of additive. Generally those things just mask the issue..not fix it. Change your fluid,and if that doesnt correct it,then take it in and have the tranny bands tightened. most shops do this relatively in expensively.

I have a 94TR magna 4cyl 5 speed manual clutch pedal problem

prob has little to no clutch fluid, to check this open the bonnet, in the engine bay next to the brake master cylinder there is a round clutch master cylinder, unscrew the cap and topp it up with brake fluid.
If the system has run dry you may need to bleed the system, if not completly empty should be able to pump it a few times and will come good.
If this is the case there is a leak somewhere...
