RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
On certain vehicles the turbo charger may leak coolant due to a bad hose, which may spill onto hot parts, causing a fire.
What Should You Do?
Mitsubishi will contact owners of affected vehicles beginning August 15, 2005. If you have not been contacted, notice coolant leaking under hood and think your car falls under this recall. You should contact your local dealership. It is helpful to have your VIN Vehicle Identification Number ready when doing so.
On certain vehicles the turbo charger coolant hose was incorrectly manufactured and may allow leakage of coolant. Coolant may run onto hot exhaust manifold and start on fire. Dealers will replace the affected hose free of charge.
The Mitsubishi recall # is SR-05-0004
