Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode
I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...
The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???
I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...

Can I install bigger tires on Mitsubishi Outlander?
the 225 is the sidewall size, the height of the side wall. I also have the same vehicle with a low-profile tire, I know there is not a lot of room in there to go much taller if any. I do see where there could be a problem with the computer but it's a computer it should be able to be re calibrated.

Oil pump snoise at 1000 rpm
oil pumps are in the sump and run in oil
there is no bearing as such as the shaft and gears are just a close fit in the cast housing which is lubricated by passing oil under pressure
as for a noise, if you can hear it there will be little or no oil pressure
However water pumps bearings regularly fail and you will hear it. mostly a sort of tinny rattling noise or a low grumble.
