Hello all! This is my first post and I've been a reader since I got my G4 in 2017.
I am to replace my spark plugs and my current odometer is at 69000+ because I think I am losing power and fuel economy is not what it used to.
Losing power: Sometimes my car accelerates slowly and sometimes its like its pulling back before it "changes gear". If there's more problem than my spark plugs please do tell.
Fuel economy: Most of my driving is within the city taking the kids to school about 8 km back and forth. Sometimes there are errands and office work which is only once a week and at night (about 40 km back and forth). I calculate manually everytime I fill up by dividing by B mileage to the liters added to my car. Most of the time its just 8.1 - 8.4 km/liter. Any issues I may be having please do tell.
But my main problem now is the air intake bolts being stuck. As I try to unscrew them the rubber bushing (Part no. 1500A401) or air cleaner body insulator (accdg. to mitsubishipartswarehouse.com) is rotating with it as well. I also observed that everytime I rotate the bolt it sways. I am not just unscrewing it limitlessly but it leans to the right. This is also true to the bolt on the housing though I don't know if it leans as well. As for the rear one, I haven't unscrew it yet. Is there a way to fix this? I already nearly destroyed the rubber bushing but still intact on the bolt yet I can rotate it without rotating the bolt. Any suggestions on how to unscrew it? The bolts are easy find but these rubber bushings are difficult to find and a bit expensive.
