2004 Mitsubishi Outlander Problems
The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin out 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.
Erratic HVAC blower motor operation may be caused by a failed blower motor and/or blower motor resistor. Our technicians tell us that if the blower motor resistor fails the blower motor should be checked. If the blower motor fails its functional test in should be replaced along with the failed blower motor resistor.
An engine overheating condition may develop due to a failed radiator cooling fan controller. The failed controller should be replaced to correct this issue.
2004 Mitsubishi Outlander Questions
Been told it might be a bent wheel or bad belt in tire; but still happens after balancing and rotating of tires
first time this has been an issue - usually I just tug the lever and the gas door pops open, but nothing happens.. my husband popped the door for me manually and when we used the lever it seemed to be in working order, but shut the door to the same result... any ideas? Thanks!
I would like to know the electrical component located in the engine compartment that should not get wet during washing the car as well as their actual position on the engine.
