I just picked my Mitsubishi Magna up from autobahn today

This answer was rated:

Hello. I just picked my Mitsubishi Magna up from autobahn today after it broke down yesterday. The RAC patrolman told me that it was the starter motor. when I picked the car up today after getting the starter motor fixed and the engine degreased, the car ran really roughly on the way home, the stearing felt heavy and it kept stalling. I also noticed that the odomotor reading above my steering was not reading properly and kept flashing the no.5. I am just so worried.
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: I did not notice any light coming on. It stalls when idling but feels very rough when driving.
JA: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?
Customer: 2002 Executive v6 5.5 Litre engine.
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No. I have no mechanical skills. I noticed this when I was driving home after picking it up from the mechanic after having the engine degreased and the starter motor replaced.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Thankyou. I am really not sure what else to say about it. It may be overdue for a service.

It is a while since it has been serviced due to not working and not having enough money. I do keep a close eye on the oil and water.

Hi Karen,

I would advise you to ring Autobahn asap.

Your engine is a little more susceptible to electronic faults from water.

It may not happen for them when they washed the engine, but it can happen a short time later.

They should cover whatever may be wrong, because they should know that by now.

Can you let me know your outcome?

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
