Hi Ian

This is uncanny as i have had my 2013 Warrior just repaired for the same symptoms, erratic heater, header tank would fill up to top and would not drain back, no bubbles no oil in water or water in oil everything running fine no over heating, had this problem for months and when it went in for a service asked if they could change stat hoping it would cure the problem, any way stat was ok, system and rad flushed all ok so it had to be HG, sure enough it was blown in 2 places and head badly warped and lots of carbon on the valves.Everthing back together now new stat and belts (insist on this) and running great but wait for it, 2 grand out of my wallet to put right.

Mechanics thoughts are that the stat was stuck at times causing problems, but i did see a vid on youtube were a Mitsi specialist reckons the EGR valve can cause overheating due to carbon build up.

Funny how Mitsi said straight away its the HG, do they know something we don't  Huh Huh

Don't know if it's right but i don't think you can do a CO test on a diesel

Keep us updated if poss Ian, would like to say Happy New Year but only quietly.

Facebook is where everyone is.... Cry Cry Cry

I run the L200 Owners club facebook page, and I am constantly reminding people to join and use the forum, trying to find info on facebook is to say the least...... Painfully slow and complicated, whereas the forum is organised and fully searchable.

Hi everyone, Merry Christmas!

I have a 2014 Trojan, 37K, FSH, which has developed a problem, exhibited by the heater taking a while to start working.

I changed the stat and rad cap, no change.
Took it to a radiator bloke, who said it might be the matrix or radiator, so take it to Mitsubishi.
Took it to Mitsubishi who said it's more likely to be the HG. This would need a four hour engine strip down to confirm.

The symptoms are:

When very cold weather (say 3 degrees), the heater only comes on when the engine it fully warmed up - I.e engine temp gauge about 50% (approx). Freezing cold until then, literally on/off. If the engine cools slightly, the heater goes clay cold again.

When a bit warmer (say 10 degrees) the heater acts normally, I.e. gradually gets warmer until the engine is hot. So when the engine is at 25% on the temp gauge, the heater is blowing warmish air and continues to get hotter with the engine.

No oil is water or water in oil.
No overheating whatsoever.
No white smoke.

One hose to heater matrix hot, the other barely warm.
Top radiator hose hot and pressurized, bottom cold.
Bubbles and coolant going to expansion tank, which will gradually fill up from the radiator. Occasionally I drain some of this out and put it back in to the radiator to get back to normal levels.

So the question is, how can I tell what the problem is - without a four hour engine strip? Do these symptoms suggest anything to anyone? Would a CO test prove conclusively it's the HG?

Is it the head gasket AND heater matrix??? (eek!)

Any thoughts please?

I keep pushing the forum on Facebook Chris, as I know full well, as a resource this ids much better than trying to search for info on facebook, which has no structure for searching info. hopefully 'we' can keep it going, I will give it another push later, so you might get an influx of members.

All the best for 2020 Chris

Well guys, one year on and we are still here  Grin

The current funds will keep the site running one more year - if you would like to donate (ANY ammount) please send to Paypal -

I still have mugs, keyrings and membership cards - everything else has gone.

Personally I have a set of 5 Alloys and BFG's for a classic shape at 250 - to be collected from West Yorkshire.

I wish you all the best for 2020 - maybe we can last another after that ?

Evening all
