Re: Vibration in Lancer when Switching on A/C

What your mechanic say is right

if the vibration stops once you press accelerator.

if that is the case , the valve must be clogged due to dust , remove and clean them with rust spray/thinner /petrol or anything like that.


The reason is inadequate diesel supply on load!

Sound after changing all belts - Lancer

Hi,

I have recently changed all below rubber belts:

1. Alternator
2. Power Steering Pump
3. A/c Compressor Belt

After changing this, I am getting some sound (Kreeeeech!!) in cold start and is going off after driving some 100 metres.

During long run, I am not getting this sound.

Can anyone suggest which one is making this sound ?

Note: Sounds seems to be coming out from belts.

Thanks.

Technical problems in my Lancer

Hi,

I am new to Automotive India. I have a diesel Lancer (2001) and I am very much addicted to it. Due to its vintage now a days it is giving some problems.

Issue 1 : Suspension:
================

* Changed suspension kit (including lower arm / bush kit/ etc). But my Mechanic did not replace existing coil spring. He had tempered it using "Spring Tempering process" (dont know about it).

* Gas shocks has been replaced.

* New tyre replaced.

Now, whenever I drive on bad roads (especially pit/pothole on straight road), I dont feel any suspension. But If I drive on curvy ups and down, I could feel the suspension. The issue with both front and back.

Somebody can suggest, whether the problem is with Gas shocks or old coil springs ..


Issue 2 : Grinding Noise
=================

Past few days, I could hear some grinding noise from dashboard. I am not sure whether this is rattling noise or grinding noise). During Idling, even If I give throttle, I dont hear any rattling or grinding noise.

* I have removed all things from dashboard box but no result.

* I dont think problem with Gearbox as have changed clutchplate/release bearing everything before 6 months.


Also, suggest for this issue also..

Just tighten the belts, the sound will vanish. This because the belts are slipping on the pulleys.
