  • Sounds like you are having condensation in your wire harness somewhere. When the engine warms up the water evaporates and everything is back to normal.
    I'd start by checking for water leaks and/or condensation by using baby powder. Just spread some around before you go to bed. When you get up and before you start, check under the hood and see if there are missing sections in the baby powder. I'd also check the engine compartment fuse block forward of the driver. See if there is some water inside the box before you start. Any water in here is definitely not a good thing and needs to be addressed.
    Best of luck tracking this down.
  • this is a website that I was fortunate to have landed on when spending the literally hundreds of hours on the net researching the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. It has a great stretch of '08 Lancer GTS pictures, and, digital pictures of a presentation by the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Marketing Manager Bryan Arnett. Check me on both his name and his title for Mitsu when you're in there galavanting around. There are pics on there of a guy with a 1947 Cadillac. This guy not only set a record for continuous nonstop driving for his day and age(who knows, it might still stand, check it out!)but modified his Cadillac to a degree I've never seen before(fridge, stove, shower, etc. check it out)and don't know if I ever will. They went to this Aerospace Museum in San Diego and took truckloads of pics, and uploaded them all to this Lancer page. Lots of Lancer pics, too, of course!

    My '08 Lancer's Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+S Pinna's are holding up very well. I took a drive out in the SE Arizona desert today and took them through some twisties to see how they perform. They will stick and hold on the road for as much fun speed that you want, men. Apparently they excel in the mud and snow(M+S designation)but they do pretty well on standard, dry surfaces as well. Had a ball with me baby this afternoon. ;)

  • Does anybody know of any patches or ways around it to where video can be displayed while car is moving? I am looking at putting a Magden system in the car to monitor all the vitals and need for it to be able to be displayed while moving. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • i ahve had my lancer for just over a year its a 2008 gts and i am having some of the some issues with the tires and alignment has anybody figured out how to solve this issur the only thing that me and the master techs are thinking of doing is to grind out the struts where it eets with the upper control arm and pushing in on the top of the rotor when tightening the strut bolt. if anyone has a different solution please let me know

    I have an 08 lancer that is hesitant at times and also tends to just crank over and not fire up at times. The car has been at the dealer for this multiple times and they can never find a problem. I have filed Lemon Law and been accepted for a hearing, now Mitsubishi wants to give me $5000.00 cash to say there is nothing wrong with my car.
    I would like to know if anybody else out there has this same problem with their car. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
  • My car has not turned over about once every few months. No reason its seems and they don't find anything wrong. Also have problem with sound on speakers being weird but they don't find anything there either. Big suprise.

    Mitsubishi even asked me if I new how to drive standard(I'm a truck driver lol) than they blamed the gas.

    The wheels on our Lancer GTS' were built by Mitsubishi before Kia put these wheels on their new Forte. Which BTW I think is a knockout.

    It's gonna be between Kia and their new "green" Forte they're building and Mitsubishi and anything "green" they wanna show me that will no doubt be my next rig.

    Oope. I left out this 2011 BYD e6. This car will sell for around $28,000 in the U.S. and will go 249 miles on one 7 hour 220-volt charge-up. Top speed is 99 mph. If it's not eligible for the BO "green" new car purchase rebate of $7,500 then I'll be a monkey's uncle, too.

    You're all looking at the type of 3 vehicles that I'll be driving in one form or another for probably the next 15-20 years. Picked from a very refined and honed-out automotive group, my car-bonkers friends.

  • I have the same problem it cranks over but has no power and if i am in traffic it shuts down and sometimes when i hit the brakes it loses power. I have been told that its the trottle body idle sensor. but a car that new should not have that problem already. I think its a factory fault.

    are fitting the bill for us on our 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. P215 45ZR18's...got them at Discount Tire in Hayden, ID, and they are $200.00 a piece. They handle very well and return to spot well...very tight tires. I am impressed and will ask for them next replacement time. Oh, and it will be done at Discount Tire, too, BTW. I think they're the best tire place around.
