Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer

1 Answer

I have a Mitsubishi Lancer coupe 1997 model. It was running very well unitl I hit a Kangaroo. We patched up the radiator to get us home 2 1/2 hours later and it ran excellently. Now 2 days on and trying to organise the damages to be repaired the engine decides to run like its on 2 cylinders and exhaust fumes are strong within the car. Now the radiator needs to be replaced (car does not run hot though) as does the aircon condensor (it leaks oil). The drivers side fan may also need replacing and the radiator support needs to be pulled out.Everthing did push back on the manifold although I cant see or hear a leak. Cheers Michael

Problem with 2nd cylinder plugs in 1999 lancer coupe. Need to replace plug every 2-3 weeks. Oil build up and then runs rough can anybody help diagnose the problem

Sounds like your piston rings are shot on that cylinder. The oil is creeping by the piston ring and clotting up on the spark plug causing it to misfire on that cylinder, thus causing the roughness. This is especially evident if you are noticing bluish colored smoke from the exhaust and/or your oil level is dropping.

Check the bulbs, if you haven't already, if they are ok it's most likely the flasher, which is mounted on the fuse block under the dash.
