Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

My service engine light is on. When I put the car in drive, I get a really loud and hard ****, instead of the almost unnoticeable one you get when changing gears. It only happens when I put the car in drive. It also does that **** randomly when I am driving. Then I have to press the gas a lot harder and for a while I still can't get past 50mph w/ the pedal to the floor. I took it to be serviced a few weeks ago and I was told it was the belts that was causing the light to come on, it was replaced and everything ran fine for 2 days before it went back to the way it is now. What could be the reason for it and what should I tell the mechanic when I take it back.

The service engine light is On.that means the car has saved some error code in its memory.In the cpu (the cpu is the computer of the car.The codes set in the cpu). If the problem repeats again n again then its advisable to get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code.As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring.For more help :--- at www.autozone.com its absolutely free to get car scanned.
The service engine light is on due to many many reasons.Getting the car scanned will locate the exact fault out of that.

    Get the gas /fuel tank checked.Also check the fuel pump and fuel filter.Either the fuel filter is getting clogged or the gas is getting blocked .Also this can be the fault in sensors. The MAF sensor needs to be checked.Also get the o2 sensors checked.Thanks for the appreciation.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

the idle is controlled by many different sensors on a computerized vehicle, some are oxygen sencor, water temp sensor or map sensor,, you really need to have the car put on a computer scanner. This in a long run will save you money by fixing whats wrong instead of just changing parts that may not fix it.

Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

Has the service engine soon light come on ?

This could be caused by a lot of different things, don't replace parts until you know for sure what the problem is otherwise you will just be throwing your money away,

If the service engine soon light IS on then go to auto zone and have them get the codes, on your year you may have to have them turn the ignition key on and off five times, then count the number of flashes of the service engine soon light and then look up the codes in a haynes repair manual for your specific vehicle.

Could be a broken motor mount. Not uncommon to break one. However, for it to shake badly you may have just broken a second motor mount.

If the service center is close by, I would likely take the chance and drive it. I just wouldn't accelerate hard - and I would be very gentle. That is just my opinion - can't be "for sure" without knowing more.

Good luck.
