Disadvantages of the Mitsubishi V4A11 gearbox

  • This automatic transmission was intended for a weak engine and the load on it is small.
  • The reliability of the gearbox is very good, but there are problems with spare parts.
  • In most cases, it is cheaper to purchase a contract transmission than to repair it.
  • Changing the oil and filter and cleaning the valve body usually helps with jerks.
  • When overhauling, replace the burnt clutches with the entire set and the brake band.
