Question about Mitsubishi Lancer

1 Answer

I have an manual 03 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally I just got it out of this shop this morning after having to replace the transmission and it ran like new after a while the check engine light came on and it would rev at 2-3000 RPM when the car is on but at a complete stop but when the car is moving and the clutch is in in it'll go straight from 1000 to 1500 RPM and drop back down then go right back like I keep tapping the pedal when I got the car hooked up to see why the check engine light was on it said it was the warn up catalyst has anyone had similar problems or know what steps I need to take to fix it

Assuming the engine management was ok before the transmission was replaced, the best first step would be to ignore the code(s) and revisit the recent work to ensure no wires have been trapped, connectors strained or shortcuts taken from best practice during the work that could have damaged one or more components.

I have not so far encountered a "warn up catalyst" so I can't comment. The oxygen sensor is fitted with a heater.

When the engine check light is on it means the computer has recognised a fault and switched on the get-you-home programme when the engine should run almost normally except when the crankshaft or camshaft sensor or the associated circuits are faulty or the intake or exhaust is restricted.

I put in about half a centimeter too much oil in 2002 lancer oz rally. is this going to be a problem?


90 percent chance no. I would still take the five minutes and drain some from the pan. Won't even have to take the plug all the way out for the little bit.

Does the lancer have two catalytic converters? If so, is there a picture or a diagram of where it is please. Thanks!


HI. This vehicle should be equipped with a 4 cylinder power plant, which only will need one catalytic converter unit. It is connected to the main exhaust pipe, after the exhaust manifold.
