Stored 2 years... wont start. What should i check?
Sounds like you have spark and no fuel.
Could be bad gas, sludge in the fuel line or injectors, or a failed fuel pump.
If you check fuel pressure with a gauge and it is normal, you may need to drain the tank and clean out the injectors.
Gasoline turns to shellac after several months, which acts like varnish.

How to change headlight bulb
Depending on how much room you have behind the headlight assembly, unplug the wire connector turn the bulb 1/3 - 1/4 turn counterclockwise and remove. when reinstalling DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS (it is a halogen bulb) of the bulb when installing, doing so will transfer oils from your skin and cause premature failure. If you do clean the glass with rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth. If there is no room to reach in and remove the bulb, the headlight assy will probably have a couple of screws that when removed will allow you access to the bulb. BTW the part # you need is 9007

Vibration on acceleration
Mitsubishi's have always had problems with their throttle bodys carboning up, Magnas and Pajeros especially. Clean the throttle body with a can of carburettor cleaner, don't forget to open the butterfly and get right in behind it. Also check your ignition leads with a multimeter, any more resistance than 4000 ohms per foot of lead length, replace the lead. The misfiring may also have now damaged your oxygen sensor, check this with an analog multimeter, the O2 sensor output should vary between 0 and 1 volt as the needle moves between these readings (to vary the mixture) if not then replace the O2 sensor also. This problem is not related to your tyres.
