Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander

1 Answer

My gas cap release lever isn't opening the gas tank on my Mitsubishi Outlander 2003. I believe it may be rusted out (as I live in MN where we put a lot of salt on the ground...so maybe i tracked it into the car???) I sprayed WD40 on the lever, and it seemed to release tension, but still not opening the tank. I also looked through the manuel and there isn't a 2nd option of opening the tank, what should I do?!?!?!

2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?


Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

Check your gas cap and fuel pump. If you can start it after loosening the cap and putting it back on, your fuel pump is starting to die. It can't pull the gas out of the tank. When you release the cap, you let air in and release the vacuum in the tank.

I cant get the interior fuel compartment lever to release. Any ideas how to open the door so i can get to the gas cap, without tearing the door off.


have someone use something to pry it open while you pull on the lever it looks like the spring is broken or rusted off. in case you have a broken cable you can remove cable from inside trunk.

Where's the transmission dipstick?


It is on the right hand side near the front, over a foot down into the engine compartment (toward the ground). It has a blue cap on it and says ATF on it.

Gas lid will not release 2005 outlander


There is a small spring clip that snaps onto the inside of the door that has broken and/or fallen off.

The new clip is part number MU481269 and costs about $3 from your dealer.

To get the door open to replace it, have someone push on the forward edge of the door while you pull the release lever.
