Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds as if you have leaking head gaskets, and yes, this repair may be costly. A good shop can test to see if this is true. It is also possible you just have a stuck thermostat which is a cheap fix. Start by replacing the thermostat to see if this fixes the problem.

First check to see if coolant is flowing through radiator, check cooling fans to make sure they work when it reaches hot temperature. If it's not flowing, check thermostat to see if it's opening.

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

Check to see if the cooling fan is operational. some time the fuse will blow, rendering this fan useless. if it dosen't blow when the cpu tells it to , the engine will not cool correctly. also, make sure the thermostat isn't sticking. there are many defective prats in many stores around. the new thermostat you just purchased may be defective.

REMOVE RAD CAP AND RUN ENGINE AT 3000RPM WITH ALL HEATERS ON SOUNDS LIKE AIR LOCK, ALSO CHECK IF HOSES ARE HOT

you need to have a mechanic change the head gasket. Possibly the water disappeared because the head gasket was blowing thus allowing the coolant into the cylinders where it was converted to steam which showed up as white smoke.
