SOURCE: 2003 mitsubishi outlander rear tires tilt in

I dont know if you have solved this yet but check the bushings on the suspension or the arms. If one is worn or damaged it will cause the tire to bend outward or inward and cause the tires to wear uneven.

The outlander has no fuel filter and its a part of the fuel pump. When do I need to replace the fuel pump on my 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander?


Fuel pumps are not a regular maintenance item that needs to be changed at a certain time. Replace it only when it fails. The designers built that fuel filter into the tank with the reasoning that it will last as long as the fuel pump itself.

The thermostat was recalled on and it is over heating.


You should be able to take it to a dealer and get it repaired under recall for free.

Or just buy a new thermostat and change it yourself or have a shop do it.

Where is the water pump located on a mitsubishi 2.4L engine? I have a 2003 mitsubishi outlander


While I understand this answer may be overkill, follow this link to an article about the engine cooling system. Look midway down the article for this sentence "More information about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Engine Cooling System service and troubleshooting, find here – 32 pages of PDF filetype" Click on the "find here" link which will prompt you to download a file 14_rar. Open it with any decompressing software (Winzip, WinRar) to find 14.pdf. Go to page 14-23 to see a diagram of where water pump is. It will also give you instructions on removing and replacing it. Good luck!
