    Mitsubishi Technical Service Bulletins

    Hello and welcome to our new sub-forum, TSBs.

    This was inspired by a post by forum member Dodge Aries K:

    Apparently earlier this year (in March) the car had the ECU reflashed and THEY REPLACED THE ENGINE. The car had 68,709 miles on it at that point. It has 72,000 on it now so the engine has a grand total of like 4000 miles on it. That's hilarious.

    Here's the service bulletin I found about it. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/20...03105-0335.pdf
    Browsing the rest of the site I found numerous TSBs for my 2015 and knew right away that this would be a great resource. Darin (MetroMPG) added the sub-forum and we're off and running.

    I'll post threads about the various TSBs that I can find and include documentation in the first post. It will be useful in diagnosing and deciding whether to take the job ourselves as owners or take it in for service.

    Though this is a service of the US government, it can be helpful to owners worldwide and if I understand correctly, can be accessed outside the US.

    My thoughts at this point is start a thread for each category and include details of which model years are affected. There's info in these TSBs that describe problems that we have already discussed here on the forum and a few new things. It will generate lots of attention, I'm sure.

    Looking forward to everyone's input.

    Handy would be an index post that lists all of the TSB's and what years they apply to without having to read through each thread that might not apply to your car.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    Hold up TSBs are different from recalls right?

    Loren, that's pretty much what I have in mind for this. First, get these TSBs here on the forum. The way the NHTSA site has them, I find it difficult to sort through and sometimes I think they got it wrong (mis-categorized.) Once they're all in one place here, I'll work on getting a sticky together that should make it easy to figure out.

    It's been a lot of work - more than I initially thought. But once they are sorted and cataloged it should be easier to trace problems to the appropriate TSB (if applicable.) And having a thread for each TSB allows for discussion directly related to the problem.

    Keep the ideas coming.

    Glad you asked!

    1. I'm finding the TSBs are Mitsubishi's response to a problem that could be considered safety related (I'm going to guess that there are other problems not safety related that don't make it to the NHTSA.) In tracking service department's reports? Not sure how else corporate gets the info. Some problems are handled easily with one TSB - like adding some missing DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes.) Other problems seem to be a learning process with multiple TSBs issued.

    I'm trying to group all related TSBs into a single thread. Some threads are getting pretty long. In making it easier for future research, I wound up deciding to reserve the first ten posts in the threads so they may be used for any future TSB (Technical Service Bulletin), TIN (Technical Information Notice), Letters to Owners, or any other communication from Mitsubishi. Discussion will simply follow on subsequent posts, as any other thread.

    2. The forum software doesn't allow multiple posts with the same text within five minutes, so I resorted to numbering the posts.

    With that, I'm going to move these two posts to the TSB introductory thread.
