Mitsubishi Problems

AC Not Cold Due to Failed Pressure Switch

The AC may not blow cold air due to a failed pressure switch. A failed switch will require replacement to restore proper AC operation.

Power windows may stop working

The power windows may fail, often related to moisture inside the door. Affected components will need to be replaced. If possible some type of moisture protection could be added to try and prevent repeat failures.

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.

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