2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Problems

HVAC Temperature Knob Hard to Turn

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.

The clear coat paint may peel

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.

Engine Overheating Due to Failed Cooling Fan Controller

An engine overheating condition may develop due to a failed radiator cooling fan controller. The failed controller should be replaced to correct this issue.

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.
