Magna / Verada owners from TE (KE) 1996 - TW (KW) 2005 Discussion here.
As the title says.. What sort of economy are you getting out of your 3rd gen.
List your mods and the style of driving you do - even the year of the car...
For example: City/Country driving.. CAI + extractors etc etc..
This is to consolidate all the recent "OMG my cars a fuel hog" threads..
Would it be a good idea to have a sticky thread for common issues and cures to save alot of searching?
1. Change filter and use genuine transmission fluid
2. Reset transmission and ecu by disconnecting negative on battery for 30 minutes
3. Follow the Auto...

Pasted back in here for reference:
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...
So I've used the search function and googled and can't find an answer. I have a 2001 TJ VRX limited edition. It has a sunroof and the overhead light that turns on when you open the doors and such. I'm wanting to put a chromatic mirror in but also keep the center light working. Is that possible or...
Just cleaned the engine bay with degreaser as car was smelly to drive with all the oil underneath. Now that its clean there is a more distinct smell still emanating from the engine - possibly radiator fluid but not sure - no visible loss of radiator fluid and no problem with running temp of car so...
My KJ2 idles fine in R but I feel vibrations in D.
As such I decided to change the rear engine mount (closest to firewall).
I didn't want to change all engine mounts as I feel that the 80/20 rule applies here where I will get 80% the result for 20% the effort/cost.
today while driving the oil pressure light came on. The oil looks perfect, level is fine, engine sounds great, runs well, no unusual noises. By keeping the revs above 2200rpm I can keep the light off. Obviously I only did that long enough to get home, a few ks. Car has done 150k.
Do the sensors...
Hi guys, currently driving a 2003 Magna TL VRX, been having issues with the check engine light and TCL OFF light coming on. Rough idling and the occasional stall at traffic lights. I've cleaned the throttle body and ISC and the MAF sensor.
The car runs alot smoother now however the lights still...
As above my TJ's throttle pedal is sticky when I first push from 0% to 5% pressure then after that it is free to move as normal.
Any ideas as to what it could be?
I've had my suspension checked by fulcrums - who I actually do trust and appreciate - and they confirmed more or less what I already know, which is that I need new power steering rack ends (the rack itself is ok, just the ends), new ball joints (only minor wear but the dust covers have been split...
kinda wanna put a ralliart cluster on to my Nessy (2002 vrx). was wondering if i need new looms or something, one having mechanical dials and one having digital and all.
Does anyone know if the Ralliart Magna uses the same front control arm as other 3rd Generation Magnas?
I have managed to impact my front right wheel on something :facepalm, which has bent the wheel out of line and am assuming this is the control arm? Is there anything else I might need to replace?
So I've been using the Michilin Pilot Sport 3 tyres which are 235/45/17, and they have served me pretty well.
I'm just wondering if there is anyone who knows whether I should stick with the same size, or would i get better handling from a 245 tyre? I'm just cautious of hydroplaning from a tyre...
Just swapped my trans as it died and failed would not go forward or back and would automatically switch off when turned on or going to slow wierd behaviour different everytime you turn car on or off, When draining the oil guess what I found the broken parts of a wave ring. Trans only did...
So I have a 2001 VRX LE magna which I believe has the one piece paras in it. I want to put projectors and angel eyes in because I like the look of them. I also want to keep my original headlights in case I want to go back to normal. My assumption is I'd need to get another set of one pieces to...
Hey guys, I've done some Googling and forum searching and can't find any answers to this one.
Looking into new wheels at some point soon, once I go brembos.
I really like the look of the Roh Flare wheels that the TMR 380 came with.The TMR had 19x8 but had 370mm front rotors which are larger...
First time poster, long time listener. I need to replace my rear right passenger door as it was backed into. Damage doesn't extend to the frame as far as I can tell but the door and window aren't in an ideal shape.
I have an '02 Magna Exec and I found a bloke that's wrecking a '99...

Got all the gaskets, tools, cleaners, brushes assembled.
Got the radio thumping.
Got the garage fridge stocked.
Got as far as removing the air intake tube (to the...
My 2002 TJ Sport has recently had some exhaust leaks due to rust, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a place to buy centre and rear exhaust systems, not really looking for oem, maybe even something a little louder. Already tried google, ebay, gumtree, even some import sites, cant find...
I got my first Mitsubishi last year and have recently been plagued with problems. It is a 2003 Magna TL VRX. Really nice to drive when it works. These forums have so far proven to be an enormous help for a little bit of DIY.
Most recent issue is the check engine light and ABS light...
So I have a question about the center clock in my TJ magna LE. I'm changing the bulbs in most of the car yo led ones. I'm just wondering if there's a way yo change the colour of the center clock so it doesn't look out of place with everything else? Thanks.
Over the last few weeks when I'm driving every once in a while the car will be about to change gear then for a split second it feels like someone taps the breaks at the same time the revs kick up a bit. I have also noticed that when I accelerate I can hear a metallic hum/buzz on each gear...
