Hi ladies and gents.
I just bought a Mistubishi Pajero 2002 a week ago from a particular, as I'm planning on doing a lap around Australia. First day was perfect, I was really happy with it even thought I almost sold a kidney in order to buy it.
On the second day, I wasn't happy anymore, as it started acting up, couldn't pass the fifth gear without loosing speed, forced to do 80km/h on the freeway, and I couldn't climb hills with it without being in first or second gear, doing 20-30km/h on the freeway as well.
I went to a friend's place who happens to be a mechanic, who told me it was maybe one or two of the cylinders which were causing troubles after he looked at it. I went to a second one to do a scan check, turns out it might be the air flow meter but he didn't had any used one to try. So he adviced me to go to other mechanics or second hand car's parts and try the same part to see if it fixes my problem, but no one wants to let me try, they all told me I have to buy it first.
I can't be bothered buying something that expensive knowing that I'm not even sure it will fix my problem and that I'm fairly broke at the moment.
So girls and guys, what choices do I have ? I'm kind of lost and really need to hear some good advices, not mechanic's ripoff BS.
P.S. : sorry for bad English, this isn't my main language.
P.S.2 : It's a Petrol and I have a picture of the scan tool I'll write down what it said :
AIR FLOW SENSOR
AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR
COOLENT TEMPERATURE SENSOR
BAROMETIC PRESSURE SENSOR
IGNITION SIGNAL 3
