Customer Question
My Mitsubishi Sportero L200...

My Mitsubishi Sportero L200 (2014 model) automatic seems to be having some transmission issues. For example while driving on the highway and stopping for a traffic light, I will get a jolt shortly after stopping.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?

Yes, doing approximately 36,000 KM presently.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your L200?

2014*

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your L200 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing as yet, usually go to the Auto Service Centre.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Also, when I drive off after stopping, I get a similar delay then the gear goes in with a slight jerk.

Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

The problem may be deeper but it sounds like this may be happening due to low fluid level. If the fluid level is low then the pump can suck air as you come to a stop and the fluid sloshes forward. This can cause slippage or disengagement momentarily, which seems to be what you're describing. The first thing I would recommend is having the fluid level checked. If the level is actually ok then the next step will be to check for fault codes in the trans controller.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
