I did a trip from abu dhabi to al ain and was trying different speeds to see which gave me the best mileage. Mine is 3.8 LWB 2008 model. The car was empty and just me driving.
Scenario 1: driving at 90km/h gave me 9.3km/l
Scenario 2: driving at 110 km/h gave me 8.9km/l
Any comments on whether these numbers are good or bad and I will check the spark plugs, filter and tyre pressure and oil.
What is the ideal tyre pressure for city driving? 35 psi?
I have Pajero 3.5 2014 Model, Full Tank used to generally give me 450 Kilometers till the Fuel Tank used to start empty indicator.Nowadays at only 350 Kms it comes to empty indicator starts,
I tried to put some fuel boosters available in the Petrol Stations, But cannot see any improvement, Can anyone advice , weather I require Engine Tune up, I have completed 138000 Kms,
Otherwise the Car is very good and excellent fuel efficeincy this started from this May. Would appreciate any inputs
New to the forum and and excited about being here. After of contemplation and digging around. I decided to get a Mitsubishi Pajero SWB 3.0 2004 (Top) as a first car in the region. I wanted to keep costs low while learning my way around the desert and sand driving. I believe I made the right choice after ruling out Wrangler's and Xterra due to ownership cost and the difficulty in finding a good example within a low budget.
The car I have shortlisted has 230,000km but seems well maintained with regular fluid changes. It is currently owned by a friend and was driven by his wife.
I have a few questions:
1. Does the 3.0 engine on the SWB do well in the desert. Not dune bashing, just camping and stuff. More of a desert learner car.
2. Are there any quirks in this car that I should know about.
3. I read about the rear bumper working as a scoop. Is there a replacement or fix that I should consider?
4. Any other off-road tips/mods that I should consider to protect and prolong the life of the vehicle.
Thank you in advance!
Hi friends. Actually i have 2 problem which is on of them is same. By the way i have pajero 3.5 v6 24valve 6g74.
1- i have engine vibration on the idle. I checkd the engine mounts . Timing belt and also timing. Spark plug and wires changed . Oil changed . Vacuum leakage checked by splashing water around the manifold. Fuel pump checked and also the injection parts got clean. But still i have engine vibration at 700-850
2- after one hours driving engine start to lose the rpm to 550 even 500. Also in traffic jam is horrible . When the gear is on D rpm reach to 500 but all these problems comes after 30 or 1 hours driving in the Traffice . Your feeling is like the car lose the power. But in the highway no problem.
Also i clean the icv valve and throttle body. EGR . I get tired i dont now what should i do. Becuse i cant stuck down in the traffice also i afraid to use the AC on the Traffice. Because when i get more load from engine i lose more rpm.
I am having a peculiar problem with my Pajero's AC. While driving, the AC switch suddenly starts flashing on and off, and the compressor stops working. I then have to turn off the engine, restart the car and it immediately starts working for some time. I have been facing this problem over the past few months with the frequency increasing recently. I have also noticed that with continued hard acceleration the AC doesn't turn off that often. It tends to happen more while the car is cruising. One mechanic told me that the AC clutch or something is slipping but I didn't quite understand what he meant.
Any advise or suggestions?
