Im new to the forum as i have recntly become the proud owner of a 95 gpx!! I love the car to bits but just got one problem i need some advice on. What oil should be used in the engine?? Cos when its cold its quiet no tappet noise but when it warms up there is tappet noise there. It doesnt lose any power or run any differently. Could i use a better oil to help sort this problem????
hi guys , just bought a tiptronic mitshi . car will sometimes start fine , other times it will start and die out if i let it tick over , however , at high revs , car will continue to run. a real mystery to me this , any good advice out there ? cheers.
also , when the car cuts out , i can hear a clicking behind the dashboard approx where the air con facial is situated.
Hi I have just bought my very first mitsi as a bit of a project hopefully not a too costly one. I bought a 1995 FTO gr, the chap that owned it before me wasn't very technically minded an somehow connected the battery with the polarity reversed, never realised and tried to start the car. Since then the car has been laid up...until i saw it covered in moss from the road. I am pretty certain that I have checked all the fuses on the car and fitted a new battery, when i turn the key to its first position all the lights come on as I would expect, radio works etc however when i attempt to start the car it will turn over but not fire. I have had the spark plugs out of the car and checked to see whether they are infact sparking when the car is turned over but they don't seem to be. Further to this I have tried going to a few local garages wih a view to booking it in for work but as it is an import no one seems to want to know. YOu all seem quite knowledgeable from reading through previous pots and topics so any ideas, information or just a general push in a direction go next would be muchly appreciated.
Hey I have been working on a project for about a year now and i have a mitsubishi fto mivic ralliart engine in a mitsubishi colt so basiccly i havbe put all the fto fittings in to a 1996 colt i have the wireing loom for the car custom made cost over £1000 to desighn and make and the car has worked grate untill recently not sure whats happening i had a new cam belt fitted and discoverd i needed a new oil fed shocker as well so as u can imagen it was a very expensive and costly process but after this was done the car was under reving at only about 500 when in first gear so as u can imagen the car was dieing when i slowed down and put it in to first gear so at first i thought it was the idle as you would normally imagen just needed turned up but now it has started to missfire badly when driving along and the engine warning light has come on. i know for a fact the engine its self is fine as before we put the cambelt on all the cylinders were fine and ive alredy checked this out and the engine is fine so it has to be a electrical fault im asumeing my thoughts are the map sensor any one else any ideas
the car still starts up and under revs but when i try and drive it miss fires and as u can imagen the car jurkes around. i can not plug the ethos machine in iit to diagnose it as sadly the guy who re wired the car for me didnt tell me were the plug in was and i cant find it
i would really appreceate any help at all. My guess is its electrical and im looking towards the map sensor any one else got any thoughts
Hi, My F.T.O wont start up. I have changed the fuel pump,the fuel filter and changed the spark plugs also.The spark plugs are firing but no petrol is going in to the engine,please help as i am running out of ideas as to what he problem can be.Thank-You.
Hi everyone im new to the forum and ive invested in a 1994 fto gr, needs a little work as its been standing in a warehouse so the back brakes are none exsistant and the exhaust is in very much need of a replacement (complete system) ive sourced a gpx but the answer i need desperatly is WILL THE EXHAUST SYSTEM OFF A GPX FIT STRAIGHT ONTO A GR? they are both jap imports and i think the same year also, need to know as i will be taking it off later, many many thanks
Going from 4th to 5th gear is a bit jumpy, and also dont seem to pull much when in 5th gear? I want to do a oil change, got the filter I just don't know what oil to put in it!!! Any help with this would be great...
just recently bought an fto with the tiptronic box, the problem is that when i go to start it all the lights come on and nothing, but as i have noticed when i take the hand brake off and it is in park it starts, so could this be because the park bit on the box is jolting the starter to start? will i need a new one?
I hope you guys can give me some advice. There's no earth between the ignition switch and starter. The ignition switch and starter are both fine. At the moment I'm hot wiring the FTO to get it started. Could it be the inhibitor switch causing the problem or just a broken earth wire. If so, where do I start to look? Tiggi
I'm new to these forums and have just bought an fto Gr tiptronic. I'm so happy with the car and was suprised how fast it was for its age. Anyway I had a problem the other day...I had been out in the car for about 45 minutes and i noticed when i was in first gear of the 4 i lost power. The engine revs wildly like it should but the power isnt transmitted to the wheels or the drive shaft as it may be. i dont know alot about how the drive train works in automatics, but a friend mentioned something about it possibly being the torque converter, if this is a friction clutch then i suppose it would make sense. Would it be expensive?
I have also experienced the key occasionally getting stuck in the ignition but thanks to another post i think i'll be able to fix it.
After leaving the lights on my car the other day the engine started squeeking, i thought this might of been the fan belt straining due to the extra load on the alternator but again im not very familiar with cars engines so im not sure.
Finally, my fto has the multi changer in the armrest but the internals that hold the cd's isnt present. Would anybody be able to help me locate one?
Thanks alot guys, hope you can lend your expertise.
Hi, i have bought a Gizzmo Electronic DSII shift light (a tachometer without the dial) and a simple three wire installation or so i thought. the 12V Ign was easy as was the earth and the only other one was the tachometer signal from the engine ECU on the passengers side of my FTO GR. when i connect the wire to the tacho signal from the ECU, the stock tacho cuts out and the aftermarket tacho does not function correctly, this is only temporary as the stock tacho begins to work again after disconnecting the other wire.
Hi, gearbox works fine in both modes for a few miles and then jumps into 3rd, it will not change wether in d or tiptronic. Goes into reverse without any problems. When the ignition is turned off it resets and works normally for a very short while. This only started happening after not using the car for about 3 wks and the battery went flat... Anyone got any ideas....thanks for any help in advance...Mark
Hi there, When I bought my FTO last year the passenger sill had some rusting at the back. I would like to get this fixed/replaced (see attached picture)
Has anyone had this done themselves? How much did it cost and does anyone know of a place in Scotland (preferably Edinburgh) that I could get this work done?
Also there is some rusting on the underside of the car which I may have looked at while I am doing this. Does anyone have experiences they can share of bodywork done to their FTO. The cost involved and advice?
i have recently had a new water pump fitted, but when i put the cam belt back on and start it up it seems fine, but when the cam belt covers get put back on it seems to be rubbing on the cover. You need a special tool to adjust the tension wheel but i used 2 small allen keys, which seem to work fine, i have done this several times but the belt just seems to work its way loose and the tension wheel seems to move. can anybody tell me where i am going wrong??????
