Fuel pump on mitsubishi challenger 2003 petrol. where is it location? How do you get at it? Thanks in advance.

Fuel pump is inside the gas tank. Some cars have a removable panel in the floor above the tank which gives access. Unfortunatly, many do not and you must remove the tank.

Hi i have a 98 honda prelude and i noticed a couple of weeks ago when pulling up a slight surge after stopping. Today it revs between gears a little before catching into gear?

Sounds Like you may have a trans issue. If it's revving while shifting (called 'flaring") and/or downshifting harshly coming to stops. It's likely internal failure of clutchpacks/bearings which causes contaminants of metal and clutch material to be dispersed throughout trans. including the very precision valve bodies. Valves begin to stick, etc. And you now have problems. Have it diagnosed at Honda dealer, or reputable trans shop.

98 Dakota that missis at idle I put new plugs/wires/cap/rotar and it still does it, not as bad it drives fine on freeway

When you say misses do you mean idling up and down. If so that could be a vacuum leak. Or even your tps. If it is a miss maybe a weak ignition coil.

98 mitsubishi eclipse manual shift jumps out of fifth gear

Standard Shift Transaxle?

Has to come out & come apart,
to fix that problem

May not be much wrong with the trans,
but one heck of a bill to get it done.

Back in the 1960's, you got your friend & pulled it
in the driveway & spent a couple days with your
tools & a service manual & 3 trips to a dealer, for parts

Not today with a transaxle

4wd light keeps flashing on 2003 mitsubishi challenger

Hi Adstew,
the front diff has a sensor telling the control unit it when it is engaged (or not). It probably is, and it won't disengage. or the sensor is stuck. The selector lever tells the control unit you want 2WD but the sensor thinks the front axle is engaged. So it flashes.
When shifting to 2WD, normally the front axle will come free after a load change or a bit of turning the steering from side to side, but it sometimes happens that it gets stuck. You can find out:
lift the car free off ground, then select drive forward in 2WD. If the front wheels do not turn, then the sensor may be faulty or stuck. if the front wheels turn in 2WD mode, the diff is stuck and the sensor tells you so. Same or similar problem can happen with the center diff, by the way, on pajero/montero, etc.
Winfried, the perfessa
