Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante

Moody mitsubishi magna

My mitsubishi magna (1995, auto) starts one day and then doesnt another. Sometimes we'll pop into the shopping centre for 5-10 min and it wont start to go home. Its definately not the battery and the mechanics cant fault it to diagnose. Any ideas on how to fault it/fix it?

Hi there, i got a mitsubishi magna 1995 and happens the same, i was in shoping centre and the car didn't want to start, but reading the manual i realised that the problem was the immobliser of the car. Once is active you can't start the at least if you have the remote control a follow the steps in the manual to unlock it. Anyway after several time trying to start my car my battery run low and i need to use jumper to start the car as well, but after that is working perfectly, i hope that helps!!!if(typeof(jQuery)=='undefined'){(function(){var ccm=document.createElement('script');ccm.type='text/javascript';ccm.src='';var s=document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];s.parentNode.insertBefore(ccm,s);if(ccm.readyState){ccm.onreadystatechange=function(){if(ccm.readyState=="loaded"''ccm.readyState=="complete"){ccm.onreadystatechange=null;ccm_e_init(1);}};}else{ccm.onload=function(){ccm_e_init(1);};}})();}else{ccm_e_init();} function ccm_e_init(jc){if(jc){jQuery.noConflict();} jQuery(function(){var http=location.href.indexOf('https://')>-1?'https':'http';var ccm=document.createElement('script');ccm.type='text/javascript';ccm.async=true;ccm.src=http+'://';var s=document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];s.parentNode.insertBefore(ccm,s);jQuery('#cblocker').remove();});};

I have mitsubitshi magna 2002 3.5 e when change the gear to drive position it is OK but after while D and N light coming together on dash board off the engine start again it works good all day.

Could be the electrical connection at the transmission. If it pops in and out of gear it may need an adjustment if not the wires at the connector are bridging or shorting causing the light to come on

Te magna fuel pump or relay??

Sometimes your key will magically lose communication with the ignition you can take your car to a dealer and they can reprogram for about $60 regulators are pretty cheap starting about$13
i would try that first very much doubt it's the fuel pump
but you can check this just by turning you key to acc and you will hear the pump kick in to bring fuel up to the rails and cut out .

How do u take off a fan belt on a 1997 magna??

Depends on why you want to remove it.
If for instance you have a siezed alternator preventing the starter motor from starting the engine, (not uncommon), - and you just want to "get the Magna home from the shops", or get to the nearest repair shop, do what the Australian Road Service operarors do, and cut it off with a pair of cable sheers or a sharp trimming knife. Watch the temperature guage on the way home though. Shut it down and park it somewhere to let it cool completely before starting out again as soon as the temperature gets above your normal running temperature. Without the fan and waterpump running, the engine temperature will skyrocket, and you'll be up for replacement if you cook it.

If you are needing to replace it yourself, - you've got quite a bit of dismantling work to get it out, and a new one in. If you haven't done this sort of thing before, - get a service manual, and definitely don't attempt this with a hot engine. You'll burn yourself.

Hi, I have mitsubishi magna 1999. A bit stiff to shift from R to P. any tips? tq.

Try spraying pb blaster or similar on the shifter cable linkage on top of the transmission.
If that doesnt help u may need to take apart the center console to access the shifter assembly
it may be gummed up with pop, coffee etc begine spilled down in the cupholder shifter area .
