Question about Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

The Pajero 2004 3.5 GDI starts fine and idles normal, but when driving it at times cannot drive over 30kph or pass over 2000 rpm. When pressing the accelorator lightly it gives spurts of power like something is opening and closing. If you press the accelortor harder it doesnt give anymore power and sometimes stalls.

Does this happen when engine warms up only or is it fine while cold? Is there any check engine light coming up on the dashboard ? If you do have a check engine or warning light ( sometimes refers to as maintenance light) then you need a diagnostic device connected to the vehicle. This will then retrieve an error code and which will tell where this problem is coming from. If there is no error code or no check engine light , then there is a high possibility of a blocked catalyst. (This signs shows up only after engine warms up ). Hope this helps.Good luck.

Pajero GDI 3500 with rotation going below 500 rpm and car cuts off

Your car has a bad ground or electrical connection. With electricity especially in cars and more so the older they get. Start at battery and work your way to the end of all ground wires first. Many times i have seen the battery terminals cleaned at battery to terminal connection but the wire to terminal connection are worn or.dirty.look at all.ground from engine to body they often corrode or melt as they are braided aluminum. If all else fails your low idle speed is a vacuum leak listen for a hiss when engine is.running or if u.can seal.the air intake and exhaust pipe.and use compressor to pump air into engine through a vacuum line on intake.manifold keep it.under

Try cleaning the throttle body. Possible idle air control valve problem.
