20 Most Recent 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Questions & Answers

Hi Hayley the noise your descibing 9 times out of ten would be a pully belt slipping.MAKE SURE you have keys out of Ignition so engine is NOT runnig, preferably in your pocket so there are no accidents. Bonnet up and look down in engine compartment there will be some round pulleys, running on these pulleys will be one or two rubber belts grab each belt in turn and pull up and down there should be very little movement. If there is any slack, you would normally feel the slack because it should be fairly tought. This will no doubt be the problem. Tighten belt. You could confirm this with a second person LOOK in the engine compartment where the belts are fitted KEEP hands away and get a second person to start your car you may see the loose belt flap around when you accelerate you will also hear the noise from this area. If there is movement do not only check the belts but also the pulleys they run on there could be worn bearing on these pulleys creating the noise and excess movement replace or repair as needed. there may also be a loose or missing bolt on the mounts for these pulleys such as the alternator these are also common faults Good luck

I think what you are describing may be "run on" or Dieseling" which is a way of saying that an ngine with spark plugs that should stop when the key is turned off, continues to run in a rough manner. This is typically caused by glowing carbon in the cylinder, often on the head next to a fouled spark plug tip.
I would recommend changing the spark plugs and spending the $ for some "tune up in a can" that removes carbon deposits from inside the cylinders.
Hope this helps.

90 percent chance no. I would still take the five minutes and drain some from the pan. Won't even have to take the plug all the way out for the little bit.

Normally, Yes they can be. It all depends on the actual problem you are having. Why do you need it re-programmed? If a total reset is needed you'll have to pay dealership prices for it.
Some independent Tuning companies can alter the settings in the PCM to alter the performance of the vehicle, sometimes known as getting it 'Chipped' or 'Mapped'.

Call an automotive locksmith that can mill and program transponder keys on site. Or have it hauled on a flat bed to a dealer.
