Poor starting from cold usually would be Heater plugs or fuel filter, I don't understand why it revs ok in neutral so I would suggest plugging in the diagnostics to see if any faults have logged, What year is the truck?

Thanks for the reply

Where is it located? Is there a good resource available for this engine I.e pictures, guides etc?

Thanks

Try changing the fuel filter first off, then report back.

Hi

I've not had the L200 long and apart from the rear leaf springs needing doing its been fine.

However the last few times from cold it has struggled to start and then will be a bit lumpy on idle.
Then yesterday it really struggled to start and I can't now drive it as when I put it in gear it won't rev up. The clutch bites but I can't accelerate. If I put it in P or N then I can rev it like normal. There are no error lights on the dash.

It's a 2.5 l diesel automatic.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Also look into recalibrating the pump, with injector learn and reset on diagnostics, some ECU's need disconnection and earth the live to ground to remove current held in the ECU itself.

As a matter of interest, are you getting smoke while driving it normally, If you are using that amount of fuel, I would imagine the truck could not burn it all properly. Maybe do a smoke test and see the figures as in hydro carbons,CO, are correct. If the injectors are stuffed you should be getting too much smoke, If all OK, I would look at if something is binding as in the brakes/wheel bearings.

Update.

The L200 was taken to a Mitsubishi specialist and no faults were found with the vehicle. They suggested that I recheck the valve clearances and maybe return the cam timing back to the incorrect timing as found prior to the head removal. So the inlet manifold was removed, and before removing the rocker cover, I checked the engine compression at cranking speed. The results were as shown.....

Cylinder 1 - 24 Bar
Cylinder 2 - 25 Bar
Cylinder 3 - 25 Bar
Cylinder 4 - 26 Bar

The specifications for the engine state 31 Bar at 250 RPM, so as cranking speed is lower and it has covered 190,000 miles, I donít see any issues with these values. I then went on to check the valve clearances (0.90mm inlet & 0.14mm exhaust), all were perfect. I then altered the cam gearing to return the cam timing back to the incorrect position, as found when removing the head. So to recap, everything has been returned back to the as found state prior to the head removal, and guess what, still only 17 MPG!!!

The MPG has been calculated by filling the tank, driving 120 miles, re-filling the tank, noting the amount of fuel needed to fill, then calculating the MPG.

Next I will be removing the injectors and have them tested (3 of the 4 were reconditioned and recoded prior buying the truck), if all are ok, I fear it will be off to Mitsubishi!!!

I have absolutely no idea what could be causing very poor fuel economy when the truck starts and drives perfectly?

As Rod says you will be paying over the top at Mitsi, but they do know these vehicles inside out, don't you know off a reputable garage to get a price, i have just had mine done at a garage i trust and that set me back £2000.

Wherever you take it ask for an update at every critical step of the strip down if they don't like it don't use them, when i had mine done i had a printed sheet from the garage and the head engineers report.

My head was warped and had to be skimmed and was also full of carbon, so valves had to be reseated and a total clean, the price for this was £250.

Good luck Ian keep us informed please we do like to know the out come. Smiley
