Mitsubishi Mirage ProblemsFront brake wear issues
A pulsation may be noted upon brake apply, most commonly caused by warped front brake rotors. Front brake pads may also wear out prematurely. Our technicians recommend replacing worn pads and rotors with quality replacement parts in order to achieve the best possible longevity for the front brake components.
A no start condition may be a result of an internal distributor fault. Our technicians tell us the replacement of the distributor may be necessary to correct this condition.
The manual transmission may become difficult to shift, this is commonly caused by binding between the synchronizer and the gear surface. Adding a special friction modifier to the manual transmission fluid will often correct this condition. If the problem persists revised synchronizer kits may be available.
