I thought that the 2005 Outlander petrol motors were 2.4 EFI motors. If you have a carburetor version, yes you can tune it for 8,000 ft above sea level. Being a 2005 model I would think that it should run well at 8,000 ft for they would be tuned very lean to start with to get past the smog laws. To change the settings you will have to pull the carburetor apart to change the jetting. The only adjustment that you can do on the exterior of the carburetor is the idle air mixture.

It would seem like the thread has stripped. You will have to try and pull the plug out whilst turning it. Get a pair of vice grips or similar on the plug across 2 of the flats on the nut and pull on this while turning the plug with an open end spanner. Sometimes this will cause the plug to jump a thread down to a good one and after a few turns you may be able to unscrew it as normal. You will need a new plug. Get one before you try to get the old one out. Hopefully, it hasn't damaged the threads in the sump.

I drive a Mits Outlander 2005 4WD Auto-transmission (see image).
This morning, I put it in D-Drive but it didnt move.
R-Reverse moves but after a chug sound.

Called a mech over the phone, he says something about a "fibre" in the tranny that need to be replaced.

Thinking back, I changed the timing-belt when it snapped last Wednesday.

Then last Saturday, while filling the AC gas, another mech checked and noticed that the front shafts had damaged plastic covers that were replaced. But ATF fluid dripped from the tranny thru the removed shafts.

While topping the ATF, this fluid spilled on some wire harness and wire-sockets on the tranny next to the dip-stick opening.

This morning, when the D-Drive failed to move the car, I noticed an extra dull glow of the green light on N-Neutral on the dash-board indicator when the stick is in the D-Drive position.
No Check-Engine light came up.

Can this spilled ATF on these cable cause the tranny to fail like this?

What can I do to correct it?

Many thanks.

if the engine has provision for coolant and oil heating for cold weather then it would be very advisable to use it
It stops slow oil circulation from very heavy oil and stops chances of the coolant freezing and cracking the block and heads .

sounds like the computer is not recognizing the ignition key. Do you have the original key?

It's still out of gas until the lines are purged of air. The fuel pump has to run awhile to build up pressure. Keep cranking. If you can take the small gauge wire off the starter easily,all you have to do is turn the key to the start position and hold it there for a while. Listen for the fuel pump. When it slows down or stops then reconnect the wire and it should start.
