physically look underneath to see which electrical connections or vacuum connections have fallen off~

My Triumph spitfire had a lug on there for a J-type overdrive that would fall off, finally took a bread tie, ran it though the hole in the lug and in effect "sewed" the connector into place...sometimes they can be stubborn, is this an oily environment? this may be your problem....ole' softies gettin' even more supple~

btw, what were the trouble codes from the CEL?

It sounds like the transmission needs some service. Take it in and find out what is wrong.

CEL (check engine light) codes can be obained from Kragen or Napa or Oreilleys or any major parts place for FREE- please do this and report back am interested to see what's up with your Mitsubishi~
