My current Mitsubishi Pajero 1995 V6 3L automatic, has a problem in first gear. Accelerating is ok, however when the paj trys to use engine braking in first gear, the engine doesn't seem to keep in contact with the transmission. In 1st gear I can be doing 50kph with no accelerating and the engine will only be doing 2000rpm. Does anyone know what this might be, and possibly offer any suggestions on how to fix it. In low range the problem is still there, but not as bad.
Thanks

Sounds like the clutch may be on its way out Rodney."Live today as if there may be no tomorrow"

When did you service the auto transmission last?
Has the engine radiator boiled recently?

Hi Rodney,

I am not a transmission expert, however, if as you have been asked already, as long as you have had a good service lately and the box and oil filter has been flushed out, then before you go to get any expensive repairs carried out you should contact me. I am almost certain I should be able to help you.

I know from memory that the transmission oil is replace every 10000- 15000 k's. I don't know if this will help but about 5 months ago two new head gaskets where put on. Could this have done anything e.g. poor installation of the engine back into the transmission.

Hi Rodney,

As I said before, I am not a Transmission expert and I don't profess to know exactly how the trasnmission works entirely, however I would suggest, that, if you want to try the Bi-tron Metal Treatment as a treatment in the oil in the transmission, I would be very surprised if the problem was not eliminated. I know other people who have had simialar problems gain relief from using the Bi-tron.

To be on the save side, I would suggest, firstly, you change the oil and check for water or sludge. Try and flush the box and oil strainer if possible. This will remove any impurities that may have accumulated over the last 10000 Ks.

Please contact me by e-mail on brian@brianrogers.net and if you like, give me your phone number and I will phone you. I phone at least 15 people around Australia 4 nights per week. These people usually want to reorder the Bi-tron from me.

Regards.
