Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander

1 Answer

Idling hunts by around 300RPM when car is hot. (working temp.)

My cars idling hunts up and down by around 300RPM when at normal operating temp. I tried diconnecting the air flow meter, which solves the problem, but I then have an engine warning sign on the instrument panel.
I then replaced the airflow meter but the problem stayed the same.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

PS. The model is a Mitsubishi Pajero io GDI 1998, this model does not come up the list available on this site.

Camaro LT1 runs great, but idle speed varies when hot


The fan should come on and should flash 1 then 2 for normal operation. Your IAC valve on the throttle body should be cleaned or replaced. After reinstall , turn key to on position for 1 min. then off for 1 min. To reset.

When heater/ac on..temp gage goes to hot when car idling but when driving holds at normal


Check to see if your electric radiator fan comes on when you are idling. You would be able to hear it if you open the hood. It should come on at around 200F and go off at 160-170F. If it is not working the car would heat to hot, when you are driving the air is forced thru the rad cooling off the antifreeze.

Engine running hot


Check the condition of the coolant.
If you have any indication of oil, the headgasket could be bad.
