1992 Mitsubishi Pajero GLX 2.6 petrol from Philippines




Fuel and air mixture screw on carburetor "flew off", I fortunately found it.

"Silent shaft" noise is present indicating a loose bearing after almost 12 years of use.

General Comments:

Maintenance is very easy, parts have to be sourced out carefully.

Mileage is about 4.5km/ltr city driving and 6.5km/ltr on long drives out of town.

Had the same problem with mine where the air fuel screw fell off and engine won't run smooth. Luckily found it again cause finding a replacement screw is not easy. Mechanic put a dab of glue on it so it won't fall next time. Very useful vehicle and gives owner pride of ownership even after many years of usage. A bit underpowered for the weight of vehicle, but very reliable engine compared with the v6 ones where crankcase pulley bolt is a known problem. Would recommend friends to buy this particular model.

1992 Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5TD from UK and Ireland


Excellent jeep try to buy with history to avoid costly problems


Engine Overheated due to a water pump failure. 4 months after I got it at 123,000. The cheapest thing to do was buy a replacement engine €1700.

A few of the dash lights have a mind of their own.

I think the jeep was clocked and maybe crashed before I got it.

General Comments:

Generally very spacious, comfortable quite rattle-free cabin. Jeep is very capable off-road or for pulling a trailer. Only issue really is that you have to push the 2.5td hard to get any performance and that hurts the fuel economy.

Thank you.

Sounds to me that he's using "Jeep" as a generic way to describe all similar vehicles.

It's a Jeep thing.

It is. A vehicle which isn't a pick-up and isn't a passenger car (that looks like one) and is of the same format as a Jeep, is often generically referred to as a jeep in many countries outside North America. Just like a "fridge" - as in Frigidaire.

OK, a jeep... others call Pajero a truck... body on frame/chassis format... In my country, we call all toothpaste "colgate", hehehe.

1992 Mitsubishi Pajero GXL 2.5 turbo diesel from Australia and New Zealand


Great medium sized 4X4


Had engine oil leak from dipstick tube to cyl block union.

Required new rear shock absorbers.

Second seat row got stuck in one position (would not fold).

Rear door jammed shut lock failed.

Headlights are poor, have upgraded them so as night country driving is easier/ safer.

General Comments:

Car is a great medium sized 4X4 for the money paid. Loads of room for a growing family of four kids and two adults. As long as engine is driven to full potential (keep turbo working) acceleration and economy is pretty good for the class of car.
