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.
Welcome to the Mitsubishi-Forums.com. Here is a basic introduction on how to use this site to its fullest potential.
Starting with your profile, fill out everything on your cars specifications, that way users can see what kind of answer you are looking for. Remember to post your cars transmission type, automatic, or manual. When you ask about engine mods, this is not always a necessary detail, but does help if you include it according to some applications.
Now what you do is scroll to the top of any of our forum pages. There is a small gray tool bar with dark gray writing. It has your member name and has the following links: (my controls) (view new posts) (my assistant) (board rules) (new messages) and (resend validation Email). On the far right of this tool bar there is a SEARCH engine. You can either type in a topic you wish to find, or you can click the "my assistant" link and it will bring up a new window with two search engines. One is "search posts"; the other is for "search help." If you’re looking for a specific idea I would use the search posts engine and type a general topic and then take your time reading up on as many things as you can. Just because you can not find the information you are looking for with your first search doesn’t mean its not there. For example, your reverse lights are not working so you type in “reverse lights” you get nothing. Your next try should be “back up lights”.
Remember that if you wish to find it again without searching, be sure to click the bookmark tab on the top of the topic page. If you wish to be informed about replies to your posts click the track this topic tab as well. You will get a message in your assistant page that says 170 or something like that, new posts. 1, 2, or 3 post is in reply to a topic you started or a post. You can also choose an email for post replies and what not.
Once you have read up, and researched everything that has already been covered. If you still don't are unsure of how to solve your problem, or wish for opinions or advice on the subject, you may start a new thread asking or just state your question in an old thread.
If you are a new member and cant post anything to the forum yet its due to the fact that you are still in a "validation" process... Please be patient and bear with us as i am working to resolve the issue... Thanks

And it's still in the yard of the guy I bought it from. My first experience with Mitsubishi is a 1991 Montero 5 dr with a 3.0 V6. I've been looking for an earlier model SUV to play with, and possibly repowering with a diesel engine. My first thought was an Isuzu Trooper with the diesel already in it, since they were imported to the US that way. There were issues with that engine in the Trooper and parts are approaching the state of unobtanium. I started looking at 1st gen Monteros as a project and found that the 2.5 Diesel is alive and well. I found a barely running V6 Montero with 225K miles, a decent body and interior for $600 locally and bought it. I'll first get it running and driving dependably with the V6 then contemplate the diesel swap. I'll have a basket load of questions as time goes on. Thanks for letting me join!
Last November my 1993 Stealth was, unmercilessly, destroyed by an inattentive teenage driver who had no regard for Red Lights. But , for one of my 9 lives ( which there are not many left ) I am still here to join this forum. Subsequently, I have acquired a 1997 GT 3000 with the base motor ( as what was in the Stealth ). The GT , being a slightly different animal than the Stealth ,I should like to seek some assistance with these differences. As by my log in name, I served on the flight deck of the USS Independance during the Viet Nam years . After the Navy, I raced Chevys at New York National drag strip and bikes at the track in Pearl, Ms. Anchors Away, Mates
Hi new to the forum Just wanted to say Ello. Planning on using all the info here and posting bunches myself along with pics and updates just one crucial problem. I need to find a 1975 dodge colt / galant coupe (must be coupe and 1975) any condition will do so the search begins any help will be greatly appreciated in locating one I'm located in Florida but will travel anywhere to get 1 besides overseas if that's reasonable lol.
Hello everyone, I am the proud owner of a 2009 Grandis Elegance 2L diesel, which I have owned for a year. Got it for the 7 proper seats, unlike some other supposed 7 seaters. I love it. She's not the fastest off the blocks, in fact a van could beat me at the lights less I rev the hell out of her, but that doesn't matter. Once she gets going she does OK, a bit like me!
Hi guys, just want to touch base to introduce myself. Being an Asian, I am a huge fan of Japanese cars. I currently own a 1995 Honda Civic Manual transmission and would like to own a Lancer 1600 GSR. Hopefully I could get more tips from you guys in this forum and I am sure I will enjoy my time here.. See you on the threads!
Been a long time Mitsubishi fan having worked at a garage in the 80's that sold them. I currently have 2
a 1986 Lancer GLX with a genuine 30,000 and a 2001 L300 Van which I've converted to a camper..
The L300 as bought (this the dealer pic) Only done 39,000 miles from new when bought
and now looks like this
And my Lancer
I've been looking for a forum for a while that caters for the L300 especially as I've not been able to find anything out there - hoping that there are lots of helpful folk as could do with a little assistance with the L300. Both getting very rare in the UK (The Lancer especially so)
So greetings and I'll post a separate thread in the relevant sections if interested ....
New person in board, I currently own an 05 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally. I joined primarily because I have issue with my car at this point. Cant wait to dig in and get some great advice from some other people.
Hey guys! I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to cars, so forgive me if I say or ask something dumb. I've been driving for around a year. (I'm 17) I joined here to try and learn all I could about my car and try to help other people out as much as I can. Hope to have lots of fun here!
Hello all, I'm brand new to this so any tips to how to make a new post is appreciated. I'm a somewhat proud owner of a 1999 Mitsubishi Galant with a few issues 1 being my reverse light fuse keeps blowing causing it to be in limp mode and I've been up against a wall with this and need help, suggestions anyone?..
Hello,I'm 64 years old and live in Chicago with my wife and two daughters. My son is married with two sons of his own. I just bought a used 2013 Oulander Sport, and joined to just be. I was a member of the Kia forums and had good experiences there so I figured I'd join and see what's what here. This is my first vehicle in 12 years so I'm kinda psyched with all the bells and whistles in vehicles nowadays. Looking forward to some good posts.
A newbie here that come across this website whiling searching for information on my 2004 MK Triton. I'm about to do some repairs and am hoping this website introduces me to some knowledgeable people that can help out with expert advice.
To kick things off I'm looking to change my timing belt and was wondering if anyone on here has any advice. The workshop manual I have is very light on for information and I have never done a timing belt before so any tips or tricks would be very much welcomed.
I'm not a mechanic but I am a mechanical designer that is very practical and handy with tools. I've rebuilt motorbike engines and done other mechanical repairs before by studying workshop manuals so I'm hoping the challenge of doing my first timing belt doesn't prove fatal...for my engine and not me that is .
Anyway I'm looking forward to spending much time on this website in my pursuit of MK Triton information and helpful advice.
Hey everyone, I'm a little new to the mitsubishi scene myself now, my parents had owned a 1989 Colt great little car, but now I am the proud owner of a 2003 Galant. its one sweet car. Has its little quirks now but I'm planning to get this girl humming ebtter than before.
Bonjour de Plaisir en France. Je suis Pierre allias Sissigonfle et je suis propriétaire d'un Grandis Mitsubishi Instyle 2.0 DID 140cv. Superbe voiture j'en suis satisfait. Actuellement je rencontre un souci de Distribution et je suis preneur de tous schémas et conseilles sur le calage et remplacement du kit de distribution. Merci et a à bientôt. et surtout si quelque avait la revue technique de cette voiture je serai ravi si il pouvait me faire avoir une copie.
My name is Patrick most people call me Pat or Pappy? (long story)
I have a 05 eclipse GTS with minor upgrades at this time. I am planning on adding a short ram intake, new wires and plugs, cat back system and a brake upgrade is #1 priority.
going with some slotted/drilled rotors and bigger calipers.
I'm an old man with a young mind.
I live in West Virginia but just inside the state line by Virginia. I am about an hour outside of D.C. and that is where I work.
I am not going to get into the boring stuff, just want to keep it on a car level. I love to install and mod stereo equip for cars. I have two 12in woofers in a bandpass box and upgraded speakers throughout the rest. going to install an aftermarket head unit when I get around to it. the six disc changer is not bad, it is the infinity system with a weak ass factory amp. (I really do not think the amp is working) I believe the amp might be in like a bypass mode because it is not very loud.
Feel free to email me, I do travel around the world for work and can be gone for over a month at a time so please do not think I am avoiding emails, some of the countries I go to do not have internet or the net is really poor.
I also have been looking for some suspension upgrades but I am not very clear on what fits my car. I was thinking about changing the sway bar bushings but have not been able to find anything, so if you know of part numbers or companies that sell them please let me know.

Hello, we just bought a 2007 Outlander LS, it has about 79k on it, so far we are pretty happy about it. Feels like a very well built vehicle, and hope to get several years of service out of it. This will be a car that my daughter drives, she is very excited about it. Her starter car was a 2005 Hyundai Accent so this is a pretty big upgrade.
Hey all, names Kent. Come your way via another forum where Bumpn (Derek) suggested I come over here. So, looking forward to being part of the community. New to the Mitsubishi scene, recently purchased a 2005 Spyder GT, only had her for a few months. Have owned (or currently own) many other makes/models. Been pretty much a gear head ever since I could walk. Anyway, enough about me, it's all about the cars so, here she is, all stock for now except a CAI and some LED lighting mods.
Also drive a 2004 Hyundia Tiburon, 1995 Mustang, 1995 Chevy Z71 PU and a 2013 Dodge Journey (wifes car). Keeps me busy with all the maintenance. But it's my hobby. Cheers!
