Unhappy Perdana V6 Gearbox Problem

Hello ZTH forumers,

I own Perdana V6 2001 that is 2nd hand car,just bought it 3 months ago.Now the gear box got some problem, sometimes when I maintain the speed at 80-90 km/h suddenly the gear will drop to 3rd gear with some 'jerking' and then will go to 4th gear again.And lately the problem come seriuosly when it will not go to 4th gear as it will maintain at 3rd gear.I need to stop and off the engine and then start it again.This happened when I drive more than 10km (if from home to office not happend bcoz just 5km).

I went to see my pomen already and he said that maybe got problem with auto gear clutch (if I'm not mistaken) and now he's trying to get spare part from his friend's old gearbox (because already change to MT).

My question is :

1) What is the best solution? Repair or change the gearbox to new one? If get repair, can it will be ok 100%?

2)Is it worthy change AT to MT? How perfect the conversion?What is the cost?How save the fuel if compare auto to manual? I will consider to convert to MT if my gearbox need to change to the new one.


3)I just changed the sport rim and now the gap for rear wheel look not so nice if not get lowered my car.Is it just enough change the spring or get an adjustable one?Now I feel very comfortable with the standard one and I'm afraid if I change the spring, the feeling is gone.Can all V6 users that lowered already your car tell which one you choose for your car..change spring or change to adjustable?

Bro, Nice Rims. I’m driving a V6, 2002 model as well. Bought the car 2nd hand 2 years ago. When I bought the car I had an option to buy UniAsia insurance worth RM2,500. This package is to cover all known V6 problem’s from gear box to ECU till the power windows and aircond compressor. The package is valid for 3 years. Practically when your car has a problem you can drive in to the Proton center in Kepong and get your car fixed.

Well then you can always say I can get the gearbox fix for below 2,500 so why bother buying this uniasia package, simple questions will be … does your workshop gives you any warranty? Now gearbox, what next? Since yours is a 5 year old car its time to change lots of part. If you are interested I can send you an acrobat file which I got it from the web, things need to be replaced in 100K km, 150K km and 200K km .. damm scare man.

Anyway V6 is a nice car to drive, you will never regret buying it. Think abt it. It’s a one time investment and your ROI will be good. I think I gain the max, I have milked the service center for more then 10K in parts and workmen ship.

Aprixin,

change the gearbox will cost you $$$. I had this problem before 2 times changing the gearbox. I got so frustrated then converted the engine with manual transmission. now no more headache bout the gearbox. the fuel more save then my previous SEI AT even its a TT engine...but with normal drive lah. Its depends on you now. If you want the performance n fuel saving, then go to MT..if not just stick to AT but try to install the ATF cooler, good maitainance & driving style also will affect the AT gearbox.

change the spring will make ur car look sporty & better handling. but changing the spring will oso makes u a bit uncomfortable or bumpy (depends how hard your suspension) and oso the parts will affected is your driveshaft & lower arm. If you want to look nice & not so bumpy, get the adjustable suspension but use a progressive spring...eg eibach pro kit spring. If u just change the sports spring, u cant get the nice gap between your tyre n the fender that u want.

just my 2 cents...

If stuck on 3rd gear from start to end, it could be that the TCU has fried. Because of this, gearbox will run in limb mode which is 3rd gear.

BTW, all Mitsubishi auto gearboxes are weak and won't withstand anything more than 200hp.

Best chance if u plan to keep the car for a long time is to rebuild it. A typical rebuild costs RM 5k to 10k but can withstand more than 500hp.
