1992 Mitsubishi Magna TR from Australia and New Zealand
Good car for the price
Transmission went in it completely around 200000kms, and replaced it second hand transmission. This transmission seems to be slipping a little too.
Inner door handles are partially broken.
Fuel pump and filter needed replacing.
Radiator cap wore out, needed replacing.
Oil leaks noted.
Timing chain needs to be replaced at 220000kms.
Inner and outer c.v. boots split and needed replacing.
The Mitsubishi Magna is very good for its price, it has all of the extras like air conditioning, power steering, and it has a modern interior.
It is a bit sluggish when going up hills, and when needing to speed up quickly.
The interior is very comfortable and appealing.
It is a bit heavy on fuel consumption.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a small problem with my 1992 Magna. I purchased about 6 months ago. It was making a noise in the dash board area and it was suggested to put in a new speedo cable. I was warned it might not stop the noise. Well 2 months on and the noise is reappearing. I can still drive the car and it has the noise for about 30 minutes and it then stops. It might reappear later. I drove on a 3 hour trip and did city driving for 2 days and returned the 3 hour trip with no noise at all. Has this happened to anyone else? What can I do to get rid of this noise?

At 2nd poster above me, telling us anything about the noise might be more helpful then just saying you have a noise.

Does anyone know how to fix the timing chain in a 92 TR Magna?

Honestly a big job. I would take out the engine and replace the brand new timing chain kit (probably AUS $ 200). But it may cost you around total AUS $ 1000 including labour and takes 2 or 3 days in a workshop.
I had mine fixed last year and now car is going good.

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Magna 4 cylinder SE Wagon. I have sometimes on starting the engine, heard sort of a clicking noise coming from under the left side of the dashboard, and found if I spray some WD-40 over the generator belt area under the bonnet, the noise goes away and may not come back for ages. I inquired at the garage when having a service done, and they had no idea what made the clicking noise. Hope this helps you.
