  3. How to remove front bumper for TL ES

    OK Mal is gonna laugh at me for asking, but how do you get the ****ing bumper off the front of a TL Magna? I need to get it off so I can swap out the headlight assemblies but the Mitsubishi service manual is really obtuse on how to get the plastic off. So far all I have removed is the bolts from...

  8. Both heads taken off at 200,000 Ks. Do rings too ?

    I've just taken off both cylinder heads from my TJ Magna.....a 2000 model Solara. The reason is that it overheated whilst towing a trailer and burnt a couple of valves...a compression test showed this. I think my radiator was clogged up for some obscure reason. I won't go into this part right...

    The heater hasn't been starting automatically on my TJ. I traced the problem to the temperature sensor for the heater core wall. It had fallen out onto the ECU. Problem is I can't find the hole that it is meant to go into. The manual has a picture but it is rather vague as to the position. Has...
