Does my Mitsubishi ASX 2016 petrol have timing belt or chain?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Jan 2021

The 4B11 (official code-name) engine in your ASX used a timing chain rather than a toothed, rubber timing belt. That means the chain should be good for the life of the engine, rather than requiring periodic replacement as a timing belt does. While the timing chain in this engine seems to be of a good design and hasn’t caused widespread problems, the accessory drive belt (which drives the water pump and power-steering pump, has been known to jump off its pulleys, leaving the car with no power-steering and no pump to operate the cooling system. At least it’s obvious when it happens (so the car can be shut down with no further damage) and the fix is an easy one.

Why is the instrument display of my 2015 Mitsubishi ASX loosing power?

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Oct 2020

Your problem may be related to a relay, but the usual cause of flickering DRLs and dashboard lighting (the LED type) is a faulty capacitor within the vehicle’s wiring loom. A faulty capacitor will deliver an unstable (fluctuating rather than steady) voltage to the LEDs and that’s what causes them to flicker.

Some owners choose to add an aftermarket section of wiring loom with a capacitor within it, but I’d first try to find the offending component in the car’s existing wiring and tackle the problem that way.

Mitusibishi ASX LS 2018: What price does this car sell for?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Dec 2019

An MY18-model Mitusibishi ASX LS should set you back between $15,000 and $20,000 depending on kilometres and its overall condition. Whether you look at a 2WD or 4x4 model it doesn’t seem to change the 2018-model’s valuation.

Mitsubishi ASX 2013: What is a harmonic balancer?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Oct 2019

I assume it’s the harmonic balancer on the engine, which dampens vibrations in the engine. A faulty balancer could ultimately damage the engine. The cost seems way too high; a balancer should cost a couple of hundred dollars, so check the quote to see what it includes.

Toyota Aurion: What car is more comfortable?

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Dec 2018

It's hard to recommend a car that would suit you without knowing more about what you want to do with it, but I would suggest you avoid sporty models, low-profile tyres, and consider an SUV such as a Mitsubishi ASX, Nissan Qashqai, or Renault Captur.
