Question about 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer

2 Answers

I have a 2005 mistubishi lancer ralliart 5 speed, all gears will work except reverse? The gear will go into reverse but I can feel that its not locking in place so to say. As soon as I let off the clutch and hit the gas it either grinds or pops back into neutral. Any suggestions? Last time I changed the oil it worked fine for a little while but this time not. Does the oil or transmission fluid lubricate the gears? Please help

Pull the shifter out of the transmission and look for unusual wear.

The high viscosity ensures transfer of lubricant throughout the gear train. Some modern automatic trans-axles (integrated transmission and differential) do not use a heavy oil at all, but lubricate with the lower viscosity hydraulic fluid, which is available within the automatic transmission.

SOURCE: Reverse gear has grinding noise...?

Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.

SOURCE: Should i change the transmission oil in my 2006

The transmission oil needs to be changed about every 30 to 35 thousand miles, the fluid and filter has to be changed and all the fluid needs to be changed. Over time the bands and clutches wear and it plugs the filter which starves the transmission for fluid thus causing overheating and damage to the transmission, All cars require this service as cars run metal is shaved off the parts and lap in to fit this material will get into the oil and cause premature failure of the transmission, just like not changing the oil in the engine. You don't change it and you destroy the engine. You should add Lucas Transmission oil conditioner as well, this softens the bands and clutches and helps the rubber seals stay pliable. I am a certified master mechanic for cars and trucks, and if you want the car to run for a long time you want to change the oil. Read your owners manual and it will have the service mileage for it. Not changing the oil can cost you $4000.00 so a $150.00 oil change is much cheaper. If you don't have an owner’s manual call your local dealer and ask them they will verify what I am telling you. Also the transmisson oi is ra threw the radiator and if the oil is getting hot it will make the ac to under perform it will not get as cool. Thanks for your time and if this helped you please rate me.

SOURCE: can't seem to find the manual transmission gear

I hate to point out the obvious - but are you sure it is a 4g13 engine? That is mitsubishi's 1.3l engine. Your profile has no info saying what country you are from - but I think all 2005 mitsubish lancer engines will be >1.3L
There is a 4g93 1.8l dohc engine.

I have a '94 F150, straight 6, 4wd, 5 speed manual trans. My transmission shifting knob popped out of it's position and was stuck in a gear. I opened up the cover and was able to move the gear manually...


it seems like your shift fork is in between gears you must remove the shift tower and align all the shift levers then drop the shift knob into the middle being neutral tighten it up and it should be ok but remember the replacement could be slightly thinner then the original and causing this new problem.

O6 mitsubishi lancer ralliart okay when i put the car in gear in each gear a strange clicking/winding sound is happening also i just hadd the clutch replaced this noise has gotten louder and much more...


Sounds like a gearbox problem. The clicking could be caused by a chipped or broken tooth on the input shaft, or cluster gear. The whining sound by failed bearings in the gearbox. Remove the drain plug, and drain the oil into a pan. Check the oil for sign of metal contamination. look for shing metal fragtments. If there are shiny metal fragments, have the gearbox checked by a mechanic it may have to be removed and re-built. I would not advise you to drive the car anymore until this problem is fixed to prevent further damage.

Hard to get into reverse


try shifting in to first and then reverse. reverse might be worn out. you can have that gear replaced without replacing the whole transmission.
