Question about Mitsubishi Passenger

1 Answer

Hi I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Grandis Chariot Exceed van and I went away recently overseas for four weeks. I disconnectedf the battery before I went on holiday. After the holidays I reconnected the battery but now I have problems with the car idling and it cuts out. When the engine is cold like first thing in the morning it seems less trouble but when I start it again for my next trip it keeps cutting out for a while until the car has run for a while. Any ideas what might be the trouble.

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.

You say that it attempts but fails. If it turns over, at a normal speed and tries to start and doesn't, check that the fuel is good and new fuel. Not fuel that has been in the tank for a long time. Check the fuel filter to see if it is clogged, Check the fuel injectors to see if they are all spraying fuel and there is enough pressure in the fuel lines. Check fuel pump for proper fuel pressure. High mileage engines check for compression in each cylinder. Possible bad ignition wires or ignition timing is off. Has the engine been steam cleaned recently. Is there water in the fuel? This gives you some things to check. Good luck.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

This can lead to many things, most of all is because of a bad sensor. There can be a bad sensor somewhere and I strongly suggest that you have the engine scanned. During the diagnostic it will list the trouble codes and by then you'll know what part is in need of replacement.
Although in my own opinion, it can be a possible MAF (mass air flow) sensor issue. If the MAF is faulty there will be vacuum irregularities.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
You may want to pick a mitsubishi chariot gearbox in the junkyard. They are perfect fit for your grandis, the only difference is they are from japan.

SRS light on


SRS is the air bag light, they randomly come on for no reason at all, I wish I could give you a solution but the only one is to get it put on a code machine and have them turn it off, the thing is it will most likely come back on down the road. Hate these lights on modern cars its just another thing to pay for when they go wrong.

Mitsubishi chariot gdi


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?
