Mitsubishi Triton 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Triton here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mitsubishi Triton 2012: Head assembly replacement
You don’t tell us why your ute needs a new head at just 134,000 km, so it’s hard to comment. If nothing untoward has happened to cause the problem, like overheating, then you could try and convince Mitsubishi to cover the cost of repairs, but unless you have a full history that clearly points to a manufacturing fault I think you would struggle to justify a claim.
Mitsubishi Triton 2012: Suction control valve
If the suction control valve is worn or there is contamination present the fuel pressure will be affected and so will the drivability as a consequence. The car will sometimes go into limp home mode when this happens. It is a relatively common complaint on common-rail diesels, and the only thing to do is to replace the valve.
Is surface rust covered by Triton warranty?
Rust protection is usually a dealer option rather than a factory one, so you need to check the warranty document for the product to see what is covered. With regard to the clutch slave cylinder you need to establish how sand got into it. Was it because of a faulty or damaged seal etc.? Having done that you could have grounds to claim on the warranty, but before you know why the sand was able to get in you really don't anything to back up a warranty claim.
Mitsubishi Triton 2012: Diesel valve clearance
You'll find most diesels no matter the brand require regular valve clearance adjustments. To avoid surprises like this I always urge people to do their homework on the cost of ownership before they sign up for their new car.
