SOURCE: i have a 1994 mitsubishi mirage 1.5L with a 5

By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?

SOURCE: What is EVAPORATIVE EMISSION...Purge Flow?? Mitsubishi Mirage?

This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. Try changing the gas cap first then check the rubber hoses that are visble on top of the engine. Vote "Yes" for me!

SOURCE: were is the location of mitsubishi mirage 2001

im not sure if this model is service able for a non mechanic. but the tranny filter is located behind the tranny pan of the transmission. you will need to drain all of the transmission fluid before you take the pan off. the filter in itself is very easy to get off. it may get a little frustrating getting all of the bolts off the tranny pan. should be any where from 15 to 20 of them depending on the model. once you get the pan off, look at the new filter and judge by that on how to remove the old filter. after you get the old filter off repeat the steps of removel in the opposite order. now most tranny filters will come with a new tranny pan gasket. if it doesn't i strongly recommend buying a new one. they should not run you more than 10 to 20 bucks at any local parts store. it also would not hurt to line either side of the gasket with permtex ( i would go for the high heat red tube) line the bolt holes up and bolt the tranny pan back to the transmission. be sure not to over tighten the bolts. the tranny is only aluminum. after you have everything back together look in your owners manual to see the specific type of tranny fluid you will need and the exact amount you will need. once that is done you should be good to go

SOURCE: how many different problems can the p0401 code be

In short,it's all cause by carbon built up.

EGR valve can fail after 100,000 miles.

Check for

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

the air tube between the air filter.

intake manifold vacuum hose.

clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

SEE sample picture HERE

Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.


Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.


EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

Remove the EGR valve.

Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.

Take it for a test drive.
