I use Reliable Automatics and Automotive in Albion, Brisbane. Sounds like the mechanics you use are pretty sub standard.

You ought to have gone to a half decent auto-electrician instead of thinking you were smart enough to do something of which you knew nothing about.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi magna executive V6...out of the blue it has very sponaniously stalled at a round about and making a right hand turn. Also when I drive it it sounds like it will stall..I have had a service on it the throttle body cleaned and idle adjusted and a new distributor put in.
My mechanic said could be the crank angle sensor but will cost me $100 to replace..what else could be the cause??

It sounds like the "mechanic" hasn't done correct or effective adjustments when doing the previous work. It ain't no coincidence this has happened after he worked on it. I wouldn't go back to him.
Ask around the traps and seek three or four recommendations for another mechanic.

This issue happened 3 weeks ago.. I then took it to the mechanic and he serviced the car and done a throttle body clean but still playing up..he then changed the distributor as it was leaking oil...I took it to a different mechanic last week but he couldn't find any issues at all...no error codes either..

Sounds like a blocked catalytic converter to me, some people replace them and others clean them out with a crowbar if you know what I mean.

Auto trans ca't select gear either forward or reverse. try to select gear but nothing happens . Code # 5 flashes.

if the shift is stuck and not going backwars or forwards, then there will be a broken component in the locking mechanism.possibly a spring mechanism. im assuming the shift is in the middle in which case u cant start car either. Thats a bugger. some mechanics who know about magnas might come to your place other wise its a tow job to the workshop.

Hello i have a mitsubishi magna 3.5 and after i start it it started beeping and flashing 1955+ and up but i dont know why?

Do you mean while it's locked and parked up? If so it's most likely one of the door sensors is sticking causing the car to think someone's opened the door, setting off the alarm. All i had to do was remove the rubber cover from the door sensor on mine.

But tbh i stopped locking it, i just don't leave anything valuable inside anymore. Had a bad run with windows being smashed (3 at $400 each), I realised there's never $400 worth of valuables in there anyway! Let alone the $1200 cost i'm now up to. . . .

Hey there, The first thing you should do is take it into your mechanic & get your transmission and gear box checked out just in case there are any faults.

Do you get it serviced and checked regularly?

Cheers

Magna TJ (2000-2003)

Hi I have a great 2002 Advance, 160,000 kms, had to do transmission oil leaks, but the only negative is that it leaks badly at the font bulkhead. Screen has been fixed, but it still leaks, so that front pass. floor can get centimetres of water, & when a lot, it flows to the rear too.

Several shops have tried to fix it ( vegetation cleared out, etc ), but it's not just that. It seems that perhaps a vent hole, in the top, where the water flows from the screen, is open ( maybe lost its covering ), & water from the screen is not following the right path to be drained from the car. Taking out the screen & looking at it all will cost about $ 800, but I don't think its the screen seal that's the main issue - there's something wrong with the catchment "pond "under the bonnet & ahead of /on tool of the bulkhead.

any ideas before it rains heavily again ? thanks Jim, Surry Hills

Hi Jim, I can’t help with a solution but I feel your pain, my TJ has this issue in severe rain although it does have 275000km behind it and has lived it’s whole life outdoors...try that with a VL. Anyway, I too don’t see any obvious cause after clearing out what I can. curious to see what suggestions you get.

600 give or take. Won't get that in city stop start but easy done on open road without a big load and taking it easy on overtaking capers.
