NM Pajero transmission light

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Feb 2014

It's impossible to say that it will occur at increasing frequency, but the vehicle is now getting towards the end of its useful life when things are more likely to fail. I would consult a mechanic experienced in four-wheel drives and have them diagnose the problem for you.

Ask Smithy Xtra timing belt replacement

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Aug 2011

If you removed the tensioner pulley when you replaced the belt I would guess you didn’t set it up correctly when you reinstalled it and the belt was loose as a result, and has jumped a tooth when you revved it. Check the belt again and make sure the tensioner is installed correctly and the belt is tensioned. While I think that could be the explanation it is also possible that the wire to the crank angle sensor has broken.
