Mitsubishi-Forums.com - The UNOFFICIAL Mitsubishi Community This site is NOT affiliated in any way with Mitsubishi or any of it's subsidiaries. Our goal is to provide Mitsubishi owners an information outlet - a means to communicate with other Mitsubishi owners. It is simply a community where fans and owners can get the right information for tuning, customization and general discussions on anything about Mitsubishi. You'll find the answer to almost any question about your Mitsubishi in this site. If not, simply join and ask! We have many willing expert members just waiting to answer your questions.
Newb bashing is getting out of control. here's the deal, not everyone on this site is a mechanic, thats why a lot of people are here. when newbs ask questions its because they obviously don't know the answer. but when a person asks a question and 5 different people reply "your dumb for not knowing that," what makes that newb want to stay?
this is NOT OK for the sight and we lose a lot of new people because they don't want to ask questions, scared to recieve a flaming as an answer. i know to a lot of you who work on cars a lot or even as a hobby find the questions funny or annoying, but look at it this way, if your in a different country and can't speak the language would you like help with it or just get laughed at and thrashed for not knowing it.
auto work for a lot of people is like a foriegn language, if you don't know it you just don't, so a little more help and a little less hassle will be greatly appreciated.

Hello to the Moderator(s). I am not really sure who is best to make suggestions to so I am posting here. I really like the options here for posting but I have a suggestion.
While reading some posts, it is hard to understand if a topic is stale or no longer relavent. Since many Topics are questions, perhaps the Topic creator can identify the Topic as "Question" or "Info" and can later update a question as "Resolved". If a question is unresolved after a pre-determined time without replies, the question is automatically changed to "Resolved" but can be re-oped as a question on a follow up post if need be.
It is hard to expalin so I hope you get the idea of the suggestion.
Ok. So my member number is 36,133. I see a newer member joined recently, and hers is 43,010. Now, are you telling me that over the span of a few months, you have had 6,877 new members join? I don't think that is right. Is this site linked with another place? Just curious.
... I must have missed a few and there are probably a few we don't actually need because the engines aren't around any more, but that's up to you. I understand that if there is no difference between the turbo and non-turbo blocks then there dose not need to be a different topic title, but please state that there is no difference so we know, and the same go's for a JDM or US block's & differences in years of manufacture. But, if there is any difference at all then please have a different topic for that exact block. Thank you. and also a Forum for transmissions would be good...

I always wondered why we dont have a project thread where people can post their plans and document their build on a regular basis? This would be a great way to get/give feedback and advice as well as see what other people are doing and get ideas. This would also serve as kind of a half assed 'how to' thread. I just feel like the general sections are more of a 'my car wont start what do i do' or 'which lowering springs should I go with' kind of threads. My idea would be to have one project thread for everyone instead of model specific sub forums.
Just wanted to throw some input in, I know I am a new member but was a long time view of the forums. There should be a Philippines sub forum for Asia Pacific region. One of the main reasons is the huge cult following of Mitsubishi here. (just something to think about)
Ok so i searched and this Wade kidder dude didnt really show how to install it so when i get my car and get the equipment needed i will make a "How to" also how many pictures am i allowed to have in one post? or isnt there a limit?
We kinda slipped into this idea in the OT. lounge when we were talking about car shows on television and how rarely we see any of our cars (1g 2g 3g) being tuned on the shows.
So one thing led to another and we came up with the idea of a section of links on this site to youtube (pwee said it can't be stored on this site cuz it'll take up too much space ,over time)
We'll make videos of everything from routine maintenence, electrical diagnostics, to major engine overhauls for the VISUAL learners. Mabe throw in some slick editing and you got a section full of VERY comprehensive refrences. Even if you don't NEED the information RIGHT NOW, people will prob watch them just for the entertainment. And know, in advance, how to correct unforseen problems with thier cars in the future.
But some sour apples will prob. post some random stuff. So it would be a good idea to have a mod. approve all the videos before they make it to the section, and possibly check them for accuracy, although the viewers also have the power to cretique and correct them in comments under the post.
I believe that , if created, it will quickly become the most visited (and most helpful) section on the site.
I'm starting to notice issues on various pages in IE8 and the browser will reset to a 7.0 mode to auto correct. Also, when browsing, I typically see this error on each page refresh - except for the index.php page.

I was reading in the Eclipse 2G forums, and saw a how to install a Diy Grill or something, and someone already posted in that topic, that they like the idea of how to's on this site, and I was just thinking that it might be a good idea. Because if you were to make.. say "Do It Your Self How To's", and pin it, and lock it so only admins/ mods can post links in it. and let the people of this site put how to's then you put links in the pinned How To's thread. It might save alot of time searching, and save alot of time for questions that are asked lot. And this would work for any car, because there are alot of people out there that are do it your selfers, that like to do everything them selves, so i know that you could get how to remove the stock radio's , and you already got engine swap and what not. so just a suggestion, thanks for reading.
for any confusion or questions about this, message me
Just wanted to let you all know you have a great site I have noticed that there are a few areas on the site that could use some spicing up and I was wondering if anyone running this site would be interested in me helping out around the site fixing errors and updating things. I am great in php and mysql, and I know quite a bit of Ajax. Using ajax would be an awesome upgrade! If you are interested, please shoot me an email or PM.
Just an idea...it might be helpful to create a forum for factory recalls. Car companies don't always go out of their way to let people know about recalls because it costs them money. But a forum for members to post factory fixes and recalls they have been informed of could be beneficial for everyone.
ANY GUYS OUT THERE HAD THIS PROBLEM , EVERY TIME THE WEATHER IS COLD MY ENGINE HAS TROUBLE STARTING, ONCE I HAVE GOT IT TO START IT WILL DRIVE AROUND 300 Yrds then it stalls. i have changed the heater plugs and changed all the fuel lines but still happens help needed
anyone else having trouble when you go to upload your own pic as an avatar? Every time i try to upload an new avatar pic, my old one shows up instead. Ive tried several different pictures, and it always uses the same old pic. I can change my avatar if i use one from the drop down list though. Anyone else experiencing this?
I realize I am a newbie, but on Yotatech.com we have a generation breakdown for the 4Runners. It lists difference in engines/body styles for different year models and such. For example the 3rd Gen 4Runner ranges from 1996-2002 and had both the manual and auto options and 3.4L engines and not sure of the other engines available, but you get the idea. It would help a lot of newbies like myself realize the differences from the earlier gens as well as advantages/disadvantages from differences in years. A small example of disadvantages... the earlier 3rd gens had cupholders that fit in the console and usually breaks, the earlier 3rd gens have frosted headlamps compared to the later with the clear headlamps with reflective mirror inside the housing. Stuff like that, I realize it's some work and researching involved but it would help from clutter postings such as "I'm looking at an 2003 Eclipse, any known problems?" Just my 2cents.
What you guys think of making a chatroom in here? have you guys thought of that? It might just be a good idea for anyone wanting information faster and asking any stupid question...or just talk about anything...even if it doesnt have to do with DSM's.
Greetings all - first time user. Hope someone needs some Christmas Karma and can offer some guidance. I am an owner of a '01 Montero Sport - Just love it - a real workhorse.
Just turning to winter (Western PA) here and 1st time into 4WD (since being stuck in the woods this summer) and a problem arose.
When I engage into 4WD (either stopped or moving) by shifting the controller; the ANTI-LOCK break error light pops on. Once this happens - my antilock brakes are disengaged! Now when I come to ice/snow covered roads - I have to chose b/w Antilock & 4WD.
Now as a test, I turned off the vehicle - it resets the Antilock error and they work again - this happens both when I turn the vehicle off while in 2WD or 4WD. Thus, if I need to engage the 4WD, the way to bypass the problem is to shift into 4WD - once it engages; turn off the vehicle so the computer can reset; then start and take off - now I have 4WD and Antilock.
Question - any suggestions based upon the symptoms - computer, wiring or the antilock sensors? Before I freeze my butt off trying to fix, I thought I would seek some input.
Hi all, I have a 2001 L200 4Life 2.5td I was coming up to a roundabout last night and the Engine Management Light came on (I think)(Yellow light that looks like a funnel with a level across it) and the engine died on me. I then tried to start it a few times. It was turning over but not firing. Now when i try to start it i am just getting a horrible grinding sound and certainly not getting the engine turning over. Someone please help me as its doing my head in not having it on the road. Thanks Glenn
I was just wondering if we could get an animated smiley face that slaps himself in the face and shakes his or her head in disbelief. Or something to that sort. Im not sure what that would involve but maybe one of the current members that knows how to write code might be able to help.
Just wanted to thank the people in this forum. Making installs on my car has been much easier b/c of the people in this forum. I just bought my lancer two weeks ago and already upgraded the exhaust and added a cold air intake. (I know these are minor things but you got to start somewhere) I am adding headers in about 2 weeks. If the used turbo thing goes alright, I will have a turbo as well. THANKS!!
