Mitsubishi Shogun Common Problems and Solutions
There are known issues with the fuel pump on the diesel engines. A known symptom on the Shogun is for the engine to idle erratically. This causes the needle to rise and fall instead of remaining at a constant speed.
You will need to fit a replacement diesel pump to resolve the issue. We can help you find one at a very low price.
Engine rattling noise
If you are hearing a high pitched rattling noise coming from the top of the engine, it is caused by a problem with the top timing chain guide.
The top timing chain guide will need adjusted to fix this problem.
Lack of power/ idling problems
The EGR (Exhaust Gas Re-circulation) valve can get blocked up by a carbon build up on the Shogun. If this happens, you will notice that there is a problem with the acceleration and a real lack of power. You may also be noticing that the engine is idling very roughly instead of at a consistent speed.
You will need to clean out the EGR valve to resolve this issue. Watch the video below to see how this is done:
