    Fuel and temp gauges not working properly

    ... for the searchers;I'm helping an overseas member troubleshoot some dash / instrument cluster problems before I send a cluster out. Shippin is pretty spendy to his neck of the woods, so we're working on eliminating any other potential problems before we pay to ship a known good unit out...

    Wrong Timing Belt Pulley Installed?

    ^^^ Good post!It's been a long time since I had a 4g torn down, but I seem to remember that the tensioner body bolts straddled an oil passage. When they are removed during a timing belt service, I can see how the front cover body *could potentially* relax/flex enough to break the bond...

    Engine Coolant Temp Switch (A/C)

    yeah,i hear ya on the different style connectors used all over these cars ... pretty frustrating!... it really makes you wonder why they couldn't pick one or two styles of terminals/shells and build the harness logical like You can say what you want about GM, their metri-pac series connectors...

    Engine Coolant Temp Switch (A/C)

    It's worth noting that the a/c overtemp switch had an important job in the original configuration. When coolant temps passed it's threshold/set temp, it would shut the a/c compressor off and spin up both fansDepending on how much wiring you remove when you delete your a/c, you can utilize the...

    Scirocco radiator question

    ... shame Kenn Inn isn't around anymore. :(He could get the O.E. spec Behr 1st gen (74-79) VW units, and they were very high quality brass radiators!We used to run those in all kinds of different configurations, and they always held up well and had more than enough capacity for all the...

    .. heh ...You came to the right place ... most of us have made bad decisions, ... and some of us ( like me ) continue to do soThis problem is quite likely going to be a challenge to find if it's been there for a few years.One of the best things you can do is tidy thing up as you go. I...

    Fuel and temp gauges not working properly

    Sounds like you have a legit and logical approach.I'm sorry i don;t have my manuals here,so i can;t dig into them for the grounding locations.We had some docs in the library section on the old format, but i don;t see them now? Rich (Mr Fixit) did an awesome job collating information and was...

    Fuel and temp gauges not working properly

    Looks like you've done a pretty good job running down many of the likely causes. It also sounds like you've put in some time into troubleshooting the issues with some logical testing Your test of grounding the fuel sender wire was exactly the correct way to "quick test" the whole systemThe...

    New to Mitsubishi...few GVR4 questions

    The good news is the interior stuff looked pretty mint and unmolested.I think once you identify all the damaged areas and repair them, things will be golden.

    New to Mitsubishi...few GVR4 questions

    Quoting toybreaker: I would continue to try and run down all the individual branches of the harness and visually inspect the entire thing. I've seen issues where it runs inside that r/f fenderwell. You'll have to remove the innerfenderliner to see that run, but it's quite possible that got...

    Thanks for the pics, that helps us see what you're dealing with!Quoting BlackHornet:Should I clean this stuff off and add something new?That's a special kind of grease, so I'm not sure what to tell you there.Part di-electric, part actual lubricant for the contacts, it's an...

    New to Mitsubishi...few GVR4 questions

    I now see why you pulled the powertrain, that's some serious carnage.The inside/interior loom and connectors look good, so at least you got that going for you.Once the engine compartment loom is repaired, you're probably going to be good to go.
