2006 Mitsubishi Outlander 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 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.

Check Engine Light due to code P0134 and/or P0154

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P0134 and/or P0154. Our technicians tell us a powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available to correct this concern.

The Clutch May Failure Prematurely

The clutch may fail prematurely requiring replacement. It has been recommended by some that a high quality aftermarket replacement clutch may provide increased longevity over a clutch purchased from the dealer.
