Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer

Open Question

2003 Lancer OZ Rally - No Start

I replaced the clutch and slave cylinder on an 03 Lancer SOHC and the car started one day, but not the next. Now, before I replaced the clutch the guy had to start his car in gear because the clutch plate was broken (the spring was bouncing around inbetween the clutch and pressure plate). So what is wrong with this thing? I have spark, but it is abnormal, I have plugs soaked in fuel, my timing is dead on, and I have air. When I crank the car it will want to start, but then suddenly die (voltage drops to 3-5 volts, dash goes out, and car chokes). When I unplug the crank sensor though, this problem goes away, but obviously wont start because there is no spark.

Code p0420 is 'catalyst efficiency below threshold'.

This could be caused by a bad catalytic converter but before dumping a ton of money on that I would suspect the after-cat oxygen sensor is getting lazy and setting the code.

Have the O2 sensors checked and replace if needed before suspecting the catalytic converter.

Good luck.

You have to bleed it good and make sure there is no air in the system. Or you could also have a leaking slave cylinder.

I drive a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally. So i downshifted my car and my clutch kinda broke. It is very loose now and when I have the car started i can't shift when I depress the clutch pedal. The car...


I believe you have a sealed hydraulic clutch system. The master or slave cylinder might have failed, or the hydraulic line connecting the two cylinders may have fractured. If the line or the slave cylinder failed you will see hydraulic fluid on the ground under the car. In any event, the system is sealed at the factory when installed and is not serviceable at the component level. If this is the case you will need to purchase the system pre-assembled and replace all three components together. You should also inspect the bell housing and clutch slave cylinder to make sure it has not come loose from the clutch housing. This can also cause the problem you describe.

Does the lancer have two catalytic converters? If so, is there a picture or a diagram of where it is please. Thanks!


HI. This vehicle should be equipped with a 4 cylinder power plant, which only will need one catalytic converter unit. It is connected to the main exhaust pipe, after the exhaust manifold.

What are the steps to bleed the clutch on a mitsubishi lancer oz rally


On most cars it's pretty much the same. Make sure the reservoir is full and leave cap off it. Get a small crescent, dot3 fluid and another person. Have them pump up the clutch and hold it to the floor. You open the bleeder on the slave cylinder and let it squirt until stops. Close bleeder. Check reservoir and add if needed. Repeat. Do this about 3 times and will do the trick unless you have a leak in the line.

Manual trans - will not go in gear. one day running fine next day would not go in gear. engine starts fine


You have a hydraulic actuator that releases the clutch. Check and make sure you have brake fluid in the reservoir and see if you can bleed the air out of the slave cylinder. Have someone pump the clutch pedal, and on the side of the transaxle there will be a slave cylinder with a bleeder on it. Crack it as the helper holds down the clutch pedal. and tighten it and the helper can release the pedal. If you have a cable there is a possiblity it has snapped. If it has the cable will need to be replaced.
