Why does my 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport cut out when idling at lights?

Asked by Steve

My 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport just had its 90,000km service and since then it cuts out when idling at lights and driving slowly through roundabouts. What could be going on?

This type of problem can have any number of causes. The best option is to have the car scanned electronically to see what fault codes have been logged by the on-board computer.

You could be looking at a fuel issue, something purely mechanical (like the idle-speed set too low) a blocked air-filter, a computer issue or any number of sensors that are not playing ball. But until you interpret the fault codes, you’ll be flying blind and potentially replacing things that aren’t the cause of the stalling problem.

I’d certainly be taking the vehicle back to the workshop that serviced it and pointing out that the problem only occurred after they'd 'fixed' it.
