First drain completely out whatever is in it. All the gear boxes and rear ends use 90w gear oil. Buy a name brand.Some of the really cheap stuff is recycled used oil.
I hope this helps you.

This dosen't help but.........
I have a similar problem. Every 4 weeks or so the car refuses to start. Again battery is not a problem but if we use cables to jump start from another car it starts fine.
Mitubishi cannot find the answer, only suggestion was to spend £150 on a new key , however the problem has now occured with both of the keys !

SOURCE: I have a mitsubishi colt,

There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.

  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

Wiring diagram for glow plugs


The glow plugs are programmed by the ecu, you will have to take it to a dealer who has the ability to change it if possible, the best thing you could do is turn the ignition on and off a couple of times before you start the engine, that should get the glow plugs hot enough to start.

Colt diesel takes a long time to start. glow plugs and battery are new. some one suggested glowplug relays or the black box. what can i do to check if its any of the two or what do you recommend i do


if the ignition controls the amount of time glow plugs are on for flick the ignition off and on 3-5 times each time letting the glow plug symbol glow untill it turns off then try starting. if its still slow to fire your glow plugs are not working at all. start by backtracing the glow plugs from the adjoining bar back to wherever it comes from for breaks, then replace your glow plug relay in the fuse box usually.

if its manual glowing just glow it for 10-12 seconds and try.if its not firing then the glows arent getting the power they need

PICKING UP SPEED PROBLEM AND NOW ITS COLD IT WONT START!! :(


without seeing the the offending little so and so its difficult to put a finger on it ,firstly try starting it with some either spray ,then when its running take it to your local garage and let a mechanic have a look,the symptoms you describe could be caused by a variety of different faults accumulating into one ,from the auto choke not working to a dodgy fuel pump or a loom problem ...

How do you change the coolant on a Mitsubishi Colt Model RD 1988


Leave your Radiator Cap on for Preassure and look at your Radiator from Underneath. Should be at the Very bottom facing the Motor. Looks like a Wing Nut. Slowly Loosen this Wing Nut and your Coolant will Drain. The cap is left on to pull the Coolant out of the Block as you do this a Little bit into this you can Take the Radiator Cap loose and it will speed it up.
