Question about 1994 Mitsubishi Pajero

Over heating problem and problems associated with duel fuel

I have a 1993 pajero 3.0 v6 with a four speed auto trans, it over heats under load for example coming up a steep hill, but havn't noticed it towing it is also on duel fuel and I have read that there could be problems with that on the earlier pajero's. It also seems to have a bit of a lake of power. Could these problems be related and what are the possible causes. Thanks for any advise that you are able to give.

If the overheating occurs when on gas (LPG) I would be looking at a problem converter /regulator for the gas as it may be too lean under load . If you have a viscous fan hub then that will also cause over heating as the engine is working hard but there is little air flow through the radiator because the fan is not drawing sufficient air to cool it.. As the octane rating for petrol and LPG is much then same then Make sure that the ignition timing is correct. Find a service shop that specialises in LPG fuel cars and they may have a dyno that they use to get optimum performance out of both fuels .

That is 1.4 metric tons, that is allot of weight, that is the problem, not the trans type, you are really pushing the limits of the SUV's tow capacity. Careful or you will burn up the transmission.

My 2001 pt Cruiser will only run in 1st gear. First thing in the morning it shifts out fine, but when I turn the car off and back on it won't shift anymore. Any solutions to my problem?

There are several reasons for the trans not to shift, it could also be the shift solenoids. These transmissions are all electronic shift. You probably have a 604 41 TE auto trans (this is a four speed automatic trans). The speed sensor (input output turbine sensor) has a high failure rate due to heat produced. It may need replacement. The sensor is cheap. Whether or not this is your problem I can not say. Diagnostics need to be performed.

This is a fault with auto trans shift solenoid B. It could be low or dirty fluid, the electrical connector, or the solenoid itself. First try draining and refilling the trans fluid, even twice over.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee - V6 engine with a Automatic 4-speed Transmission. Unit will not shift out of 1-2 speed into 3-4 gear. I have checked shift linkage - is OK & TV linkage OK. Is there a vacuum...

The only thing that you can do is check the trans fluid.Start car,run it through all gears and end in neutral.Handbrake on.Now check the trans fluid level.Make sure engine is warm.If needed add fluid.If this is not the problem,a tranny expert is the go.There is not a lot anyone can do with an auto trans at home.Hope this helps

I have the same problem. A guy (not a mechanic) told me that it could be the matrix, which is expensive, or simply the water pipes. If it is the matrix, check on ebay before ££ spending hundreds ££ at a garage, I saw one for £60. I've got my pajero booked in at the garage.. Let's see what they say!
