Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
Fuel temperature sensor code PO181 showed up on car
Most mitsubishis incorporate the ambient temp sensor circuit sensor in the tanks sending unit. You may want to reset the computer by unplugging your battery for a few minutes and reconnecting it to clear the code if you don't own a scan tool. Beware this method of computer clearing as some Japanese cars have a security feature built into the radios if you lose power to the car. Make sure you have the radio code handy if you use this method. Hopefully, the code will stay cleared and you will not need to drop the tank to replace the fuel level sending unit where the temp sensor is usually located. Check to make sure the unit has a good ground first before replacing. Good luck, I hope this helps

Has it overheated lately?
My wife overheated our Galant and it just stopped working, it cranks but that's it.
I pulled the sparkplugs and found them wrapped in a gewey jelly like substance. Like an oil/antifreeze combo.
I am going to replace the entire motor for $1000 as taking it to the mechanics to theorize and practice may cost more.

The sensor should be located where the shifter cable is attached to the trans. It will have a plug with several wires. Usually there will be a way to align it, like a hole with a pin when it should be in neutral.
