2. Reset transmission and ecu by disconnecting negative on battery for 30 minutes
3. Follow the Auto...

Reading past posts about sagging interior roof lining, I gather that a professional replacement is the recommended way to go?
As a short term fix for the lining scraping the top of my head, would it be OK to cut away the loose fabric?
I ask specifically because I'll shortly be driving...
Hi All - I have a TW VR-X AWD with a leaking brake booster. The sound of air rushing through the firewall behind the dashboard has got steadily louder over the last 6 months and it is now much harder to pull it up than it used to be. OK at low speeds/brake application however. Bottom line is I...
So I was cleaning the gunk out from under the bonnet of my TL Magna when I found this unknown object wedged up against the firewall kind of below the TCL solanoids. It wasn't attached to anythng and kind of just wedged in there.
I have no idea what it is but as you can see from the pic (which I...

What is the brake rebuild kit part number for the 3rd gen single piston front calipers?
Also that little bag of red grease that Mitsubishi supplies, is that for the slide pins or the piston, or both?
hey everybody.. I'm newly registered here.. found the site on Google. I registered because I thought this may be a good place to try and sell my Magna. I posted a thread about the car in the For Sale section. Reason for this post is to find out if there are any dealers here looking for or willing...
Old member but had to re-register. Anyway, 2001 Solara with a knackered n/s (passenger) front power window mech'. I got one from a wrecker but when I got the door panel off I saw that mine has a five pin plug and the new one has a two pin. No wrecker seems to have heard of this. I also...
I have recently got back into the magnas after more than a decade's break.
Car is a 1996 KE Verada stock wheels, stock height, pretty much everything.
I've installed new shocks, front lower control arms, tie rod and rack ends, etc.
Car runs well and auto shifts nicely but there is a very...
For the last couple of years a banging sound had developed in the rear of the TF wagon. It started out as a minor irritant but lately it had progressed to a really unpleasant, harsh bang that often occurred over quite mild bumps. I'd been all over the car a dozen times trying to nail down the...
I know there are heaps of threads regarding towbars but information seems all over the place and is not exactly what I am looking for.
From those threads, it understand that the KJ2 has some different parts in the bumper supports or something.
So, my questions:
1. Does a 1,500kg...
I've still got my 2000 Magna Wagon which myself and my wife use as a daily.
Lately, after the heavy Sydney rain the car has had some issues starting and running smoothly.
After the rain, when the sun is out the car runs fine.
Has any one else experienced this with their Magnas?...
Hi ladies and gents, I am currently working on my sons TJ VRX 5 speed manual, I am doing the timing belt and cannot remove the crank dog bolt. It is the hardest one I have ever come across. I consulted the manual and it only states removal process for the auto, i.e with the metal strap locking the...
I am thinking to use evo clutch kit but not sure also what is best hd clutch to use
Hi all, my Verada makes annoying rattles/squeaks coming from around the demister vents in the top of the dash board, anyone have any ideas how to fix this? cheers
Was doing a radiator flush yesterday and while running the Nulon flush through the coolant system (took the car for a short 20 minute drive), steam started to come out of the front AC vent and also I got water near the front passenger seat floor. So I reckon I have a heater core leak.
Looking to get a spare auto transmission relay as seems to be a common issue with them and am wondering the location of the relay.
I think i may have found it and have attached a few pics hoping someone will verify.
Does any body have a part number either genuine or after market?
So I did the head gasket in the old girl a good while ago and the mechanic ended up replacing the 3.5L injectors with 3L injectors instead. Wasn't happy about it at all but same flow rate up to 3.5k revs so I survived haha.
Pretty keen on changing them now though, I have managed to find them but...
Had a minor issue this arvo, nothing dramatic, just weird, and wanted to see if anybody else has ever experienced this. Went to top up the tyre pressure and on removing the front passenger side valve cap (original metal one) had air pissing out with the valve pin sticking out several millimetres. ...
I've asked for advice on this before, but the problem persists. The car gets about 19-20l/100, driven lightly, around town. It's the Impco factory gas system. Car has done 129k and runs nicely. It's been to several gas places who all say it's fine, inc. the people who did the original factory gas...
