Mitsubishi Lancer Problems

The automatic transmission may fail prematurely

The automatic transmission may fail prematurely. Transmission overhaul or replacement may be necessary to correct this concern.

Hard or no start condition due to worn camshaft sensor support

A hard or no start condition with fault codes P0335 and/or P0340 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) may be due to abnormal wear of the camshaft position sensor support. Our technicians tell us a revised sensor support is available to correct this issue.
