Hi Greg, thanks for your info, yes the engine run's but only at idle No revs! the engine run's perfectly no misfire that i can detect, I have only just purchased the car so have no idea about check ups, I feel the high temp has something to do with it, and why can i not open the windows? unlikly i know but could there be a connection here? probly a fuse, but maybe not? also I dont think the car is fitted with OBD2 as far as i can tell it's a MUT system from Mitubishi the car was made in Japan for the asian market, I by the way am in Philippines out in the sticks, so servics dealers are pritty primitive away fom the city's, i can't drive 200+ miles at idel speed! also can you tell me at what intervals i should change the timing belt? Regards Dusty.
Hi Greg, just been ckecking the car after a 2 week standing, engine runs like a sewing machine, and responds to the throttle! but engine check light still on but not blinking, last service at 125,000 klms, next due at 180,000currantly at 145,000K the sevice was done in 2011!! timing belt due so will get it done next trip to Manila, consumption seems very high at 7k to the liter, maybe the misfiring? dont know what it should be,
will the OBD2 work on this car? Thanks your ecellent service and your patience will rate you next email.
Thanks Regards Dusty.
Hi Dusty .
Please check and see if you do have the OBD plug on the drivers side or in the middle consul .
will look like this .
Once you have the codes then you will know what you are up against .
Hi Greg, Yes I rated you as excellent, and a tip of 900 Pesos which is about 10 quid give or take.
the car is running fine, I disconnected the battery, but light came back on guess it's the timing belt warning, my only problem is fuel consumption seems to me a bit high, will get it all checked out as soon as I get to a dealer, hey gas here is only 75p a liter so relly no worries. Cheers Dusty.
