    Okay, 5 years ago, I had this problem and it was discovered that the Car's sensor was causing this trouble. People with GDI Engines should note that this problem is not caused by faulty rings or anything near to that. It is usually a sensor trouble that makes the engine produce a discomforting smoke.

SOURCE: engine check light is on my mitsubishi chariot

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors 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 you need to diagnosed and repaired it. There are test that need to be performed the find out the cause. The light will stay on until the problem is solved.

If your car has blue smoke, then that is oil that is burning. You might have a worn out engine or bad valves. To check the condition on your engine, you should get a engine compression check. Was your engine oil level checked for proper oil levels?

205 is the width in mm. 65 is the hight of the sidewall (.65x205=133.25mm)65 percent of the with. 15 is the diamater in inches of the rim (tire hole) for example if you keep the same rims 205 75 15 would be the same width but slightly taller.
215 65 15 is wider and taller as 65% of 215 is 139.75 millimeters. if you go to 16 or 17 inch rims u can get much bigger. the width of the tire must not rub on the insides of the fenders. the hight must not contact the top of fender taking in consideration the suspension. u can look for car clubs of that model and chat with the members.

Hi, I have a Mitsubishi Chariot Grandis Exceed 1998 (4g64) and recently changed the engine. Prior to changing the engine the car had a shudder when driving approximately 70kmph. This appears to be caused by some sort of misfire as one can see the ref counter dropping and picking up slowly. After changing the engine I still have exactly the same problem which tells me it is not the engine. I took it in and they tested it with one of those plug in machines but to no avail as it did not pick up any faults. Due to the slight drop of the needle prior to the car shuddering, I cleaned out the injectors but this does not appear to be a part of the problem. This usually occurs more often when the engine is warmer and not when one start up and drive. Any ideas what can cause this?

I had been saving for a toyota noah or nissan serena but things changed and i ended up recently purchasing an ex japan mitsubishi chariot, 1998 2.4L grandis with 78000kms. everything is normal now except...


Everything is repairable if the parts and expertise are available,just not always viable.
The problems we see here with this model is idle low and stalls caused by dirty throttle body and air flow sensor.This should be the GDI model.they should run very lean.
Sooty exhaust can be caused by a few areas singularly or combined.
Faulty or dirty oxygen sensor.
Warn spark plugs(this model usually has iridium or platinum that should do 60-80,000km).
Blocked/dirty air filter.
Weak spark from the coil(s)
Poor fuel grade
Incorrect timing or knock sensor faulty.
Injectors dirty(not so common).
worn/tired engine(not yours if the kms correct)
Catalyic convertor fault
Thermostat too cold or stuck open
Engine temp too low or sensor fault for coolant signal to ECU
etc.
Hope this helps you

I have a 98 mitsibishi chariot grandis gdi, it smokes badly while warming up but then gets less while driving. The smoke is bluish white.


I think it is blue oil smoke that you are describing, indicating internal engine wear of piston rings and/or valve guides leaking excessive oil.

Usually, this occurs to high mileage vehicles, or vehicles which haven't had regular oil changes every 3,000 mi. for the life of the engine.

1998 gdi grand chariot abs light is always on and has A tak tak sound when driving


needs to have system checked,could be as simple as debris,grease,dirt fouling an abs sensor.best bet is to take it to a dealer,another thing to consider is if you have a warning light on for something like abs or airbag etc,that system is out of order and will not work till fault is rectified.
