Mitsubishi Problems

2-3 Shift Flair From Automatic Transmission

The automatic transmission may develop a 2-3 shift flair. This is commonly caused by an internal fault related to the reverse clutch assembly. Replacement of the rear housing and reverse clutch assembly may be required to correct this concern.

PCM Software Update Available

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with no fault confirmed. Our technicians tell us a powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available which may correct this concern.

Loose or Broken Crankshaft Pulley Bolt

The crankshaft pulley bolt may become loose or break causing loss of power steering operation and other related engine accessories. Some of these vehicles may be involved in a recall for this issue. Our technicians tell us that an updated bolt may be available. Replacing as necessary and properly torquing the crankshaft bolt will commonly correct this issue.

KYB AGX struts/shocks make a large improvement in handling for not too much mon...
