    Sirs, need some help....

    I have a strada 4x4 sport V (automatic). The gear stays at 2nd and 3rd gear only with the check engine light on.

    This happens when you are running in high speed/high revs. Before this will happen, shock shift occurs. To remedy the problem, turn off the engine and restart.

    Brought the unit to mitsubishi, they replaced the speed sensor twice, same problem occurs. Need help.

    Thank you

    Yes sir, used to have. Pero tinangal ko kasi, para sa akin, parang nag-force feed ng fuel ang tuning chip, kaya baka masira ang fuel pump or CRDI

    Ibig sabihin hindi rin maganda ang nakaTuning Chip?

    Mitsubishi Strada Automatic models have a detuned engine to match the torque that the Automatic Transmission can handle (which is 350Nm). When you installed the chip, torque went up to as high as 420Nm which in turn made your transmission slip every time you mashed the accelerator. Do this often and it will damage your torque converter.
