It's fuel related, check your fuel filter to see if it's clogged, let me know. Good luck, Jim

You have a build up of oil/water in the resevoir on your air intake duct, take the two clamps off, one on the throttle body, the other off the air filter box and spray the duct work with brake fluid cleaner (outside if possible) make sure you spray the resevoir, then wipe clean your throttle body with a cloth sprayed with carb cleaner. After the duct work is dry reassemble, clear your codes with a code reader and you should be good to go.

Check engine light came on then reduce engine power


When this light comes on it means the computer control module has detected a fault in the system, it has reduced power to avoid any damage to the engine or transmission. You must now have the computer scanned for fault codes, this is done through the diagnostic connector under the dash see photo below.

Cvt light on indicating over heating. Stops car lets it cool down and then completes his trip. Dealer could not identify problem or diagnose the problem.


I do not know why your local Mitsubishi dealer cannot figure this one out. What you are describing is a known problem for which Mitsubishi has published a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB).

The problem is caused by incorrect transmission fluid levels and there is an updated dipstick included in the fix.
MITSUBISHI TSB REFERENCE NUMBER: TSB-10-23-005

You may also want to talk to your son about heeding warnings from your vehicle's onboard computer system. When the CVT transmission begins to overheat, the CVT light will come on, a warning chime will sound, and the words "SLOW DOWN" will be displayed in the Muti-informational Display. This will occur LONG before the vehicle goes into "REDUCED POWER" mode. If he would slow down as he is being told to, the warnings will extinguish themselves as soon as the transmission fluid temperature drops to a safe level (which it will, if he slows down).

REDUCED POWER MODE is like an angry parent...."OK, you don't want to slow down like I told you to do, and you are going to destroy my transmission by ignoring my warnings, so I am shutting you down!!! You won't slow down, so I am slowing you down! Now, if you do not want this to continue, then you better start listening to me!"

Similar things will happen if you choose to ignore engine control or Brake/Traction Control warnings. The old days of ignoring warning lamps and running around with your dash lit up like a Christmas tree are over. There is a new sheriff in town called REDUCED POWER MODE.

the post that everybody refuse to read or acknowledge is the first simple instruction
when ever there is a problem , have the fault codes read first
it is free at autozone and other parts shops
then knowing what the problem is you can have it fixed at an accredited service center for less money that fixing what is not faulty costs
