  • It sounds as if your high tension leads are breaking down. It could be the leads, it could be the spark plugs causing it. Either way, the weakest point i the ignition system is the high tension leads. Get the car in total darkness (or as dark as you...

  • You're all wrong about the bow - it is simply there to hold the bloody thing together.... I am jealous, and not about the bow either.

    replied to Tail Shaft Seal leaking
    It could be the front joint in the tailshaft. If that is worn, you could get a ticking noise and it could be throwing the shaft around and disturbing the oil seal as well.

  • Going from 2H to 4H, the next step is 4H with centre diff locked. It sounds as if the shift lever needs adjusting because you are going too far and trying to go into diff lock as well as 4h.

  • My Haynes W/S manual shows the wiring diagram for the instruments as 12V going into a control unit and then several instruments coming from that unit. I don't know about Mitsubishis but other cars use a stabilised power supply for their instruments and...

    replied to NL rear tow point
    Not only the NL. My NW has less rear seat room than my wife's budget Outlander. The reason is that the Pajero is a 7 seater (the third row is really only for small kids - the NL was better I think) whereas the budget priced Outlander was only a 5 seater....

  • I doubt that the Torquepro would have an audible alarm built into it. If you want an audio alarm it is easy enough to tap into the appropriate circuit (the DPF light in your case) and use a small piezo buzzer which you can buy for a few dollars at electronics...

    replied to Battery Drain Issue
    Remember when checking the current draw that things like the car interior lights stay on for a while after all the doors are closed, so if you open the door to turn the ignition on or off, there is going to be a current draw for a while until all that...

  • You could do what you are proposing. However, you would have to have the welding earth clamp very close to the point where you are welding, and even then, the inductive current could trigger the seat air bag or the seat belt pre-tensioner. if you do...

    replied to NL rear tow point
    Not really - my wife reckoned that the original NL seats were more comfortable. I think that once in the seats, the Recaros were more comfortable, but they were hard to get into because you had to climb UP to get into them. We chose the Recaro seats...

  • Has the Super Select light issue just started or has it been there for a long time? The light issue can be caused by different size or make of tyres front to back. I had this issue with my NW Pajero and when I finally got 4 tyres of the same brand and...

  • The oil circulation system relies on a small amount of pressure to ensure that oil flows through the system. Probably by the time the oil alarm function comes on, you would be close to, but not damaging the bearings etc. I think there is probably little...

  • If the engine is shaking and stalling, you probably have a large air leak - a vacuum hose either left off by accident, or fallen off in service. either way, the air/fuel mixture will be too lean and the oxygen sensor will probably be trying madly to...

    replied to Brakes
    DibbyDIbbyDj: Thanks for this post on brake bleeding. I have never heard of this method, and as I am about to do both our cars, I will certainly give it a try. Obviously the rubber diaphragm in the master cylinder has to be removed so that the fluid...

  • It is probably a good idea to use a fuel additive which prevents fungus buildup in the tank. It will prevent the fungus from forming and if you already have it on the filter, it will probably help to dissolve the fungus, thereby eliminating the need...

    replied to NL rear tow point
    I was taught to use 50% of tensile strength for shear conditions. The fun starts when you have shear and tension applied to the bolt. In my case, when the Commodore hit the towbar, it bent the cross tube which I had fitted (50 x 50 x 8 mm wall thickness)...

  • "With less fuel in the tank, fuel is more likely to drain back if there is a slight air leak somewhere."
    Fuel can only leak back into the tank if you have an air leak. The in-tank filter can still be partially blocked and this increases...

  • "So the question remains when the rattling of metal parts starts in 2H and gets louder why it dissapears when I put it into 4h immediately."

    As said above, 4H is the default. The noise coming when you try 2WD is the dog clutch...

    replied to NL rear tow point
    One of my main concerns with the towbar the dealer supplied (the cheaper version) was not the rating (I didn't even know what the rating was), but rather the leverage applied by the towball on the rear cross tube of the chassis member. I made up my own...

  • If the length of the hose has any significant effect, you have a lot of blowby leaking past the rings and you have much more expensive troubles ahead of you. I agree with Kingbrown - the actual location of the catch can should not affect its performance....
