Mitsubishi Triton 2009: Fuel cutting out

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Feb 2019

I would be looking at the injectors first. Worn injectors are common in modern common-rail diesel engines; it could also be a sticking injector. You could also check the low and high-pressure fuel systems.

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Mar 2016

I would be looking at the fuel supply, the filters, fuel pump, and the fuel itself. If the performance generally has dropped off I would also be looking at the turbocharger.

Mitsubishi Triton 2012: Diesel valve clearance

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Sep 2013

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.

Triton GLX-R blows black smoke

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2013

You don't say if the engine is a petrol or diesel, but I'm guessing it's a diesel. If that's the case it's likely to be excessive fuel, which could be an injector problem, or a fuel pump issue. Get it to a diesel mechanic, who should be able to sort it out.

The injectors used in all of these Japanese common-rail diesels wear and that's likely to be your problem. The only course of action is to replace them, as you have been advised.
