I just bought a used Mitsubishi carisma with about 137,000 mileage on it and there seems to be some issues i do like you knowledgeable guys to help me with. Note that this is the first ride am buying
Meanwhile this is my first post here and i want to see the forum has been educative and enlighting.
First and Foremost, What i believe to be my My check engine light indicator (Helicopter in flight amber light ) came on the very first day i picked up. i have got a mechanic to change the engine oil and the oil filter yesterday but the light is still on.
Pls what do i do about this now.
Also the car does this serious forward jerk when you begin to accelerate it. what could be causing this and solution pls
Also how do i see the exact year model of the car cause i do like to get a manual of the car. so where on the car body can i see this.
when i drove the car around after the engine oil has been changed, i kept hearing this wheezing sound like sandy gritty sound from the engine.
what can this be and what do i do about it.
Will it be possible to get a new car key as the one that the dealer gave me is almost broken. also whatz the best Transmission oil to use to top up the gear oil.
I dont really have or know mechanics i can trust to service or look at the car since am a novice here
Thanks all as i expect your good advice on these
