2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.

Engine -- Verified

A hard or no start condition with fault codes P0335 and/or P0340 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) may be due to abnormal wear of the camshaft position sensor support. Our technicians tell us a revised sensor support is available to correct this issue.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P0181. Our technicians tell us the fuel level sensor may be at fault requiring replacement.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing a stalling can/or no start condition. Replacing the faulty crankshaft position sensor should correct this condition.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

It is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Reviews

I bought this car in 2002 and I still love my car. Just recently am I having trouble with the sound of the car. Once I go over 60 mph, it sounds really rough on the engine. Will be bringing it in soon.
