If your Evo X is making a clicking noise when you turn the wheel, you need to take it to a mechanic. If the noise is not related to the engine, you should check out the exhaust system, TC-SST dual-clutch gearbox, and steering rack position. Moreover, you should check the level of coolant and the cooling system.
TC-SST dual-clutch gearbox
The TC-SST dual-clutching gearbox from Mitsubishi is the company’s first attempt at an automated manual transmission. It features dual wet clutches that engage both even and odd gears on separate shafts for up to six seamless gear changes. Mitsubishi has also incorporated an air-cooler to help keep oil temperatures at a low level.
The TC-SST is available with an optional manual or auto shift mode. The TC-SST also includes a toggle switch for shifting modes, allowing the driver to choose between Normal, Sport, and Super Sport shift scheduling. This feature optimizes the shift schedule for a variety of situations.
The TC-SST is also available with the Lancer Evolution X, giving drivers the option to choose a manual or an automatic transmission. The latter offers a smoother shifting experience with greater accuracy.
Checking the coolant level
If you notice that your Evo X is making a clicking noise when turning, you might need to add some coolant to the radiator. This is a relatively easy process that will cost you about $100. First, you will want to remove the EVO sensor. It is a black doughnut-like device that sits on the steering column. It is attached to the steering column with three clips. To remove it, unplug the connector and carefully lift it up. It will then slide off the steering column.
Another way to troubleshoot this problem is to check the coolant level. This is especially important if you’ve been hearing the clicking noise while driving. The coolant level is an important part of the engine, as it keeps it from overheating. You should also check the coolant level every time you change the oil. This will prevent this issue from happening again.
Checking the exhaust system
If your Evo X has a clicking noise when turning it, you should check the exhaust system to see if there is any blockage. If there is, you should check the coolant level, too. On some Evo X models, the fuel pump relay may fail, causing the engine to run lean. To prevent this, replace the relay before the engine fails completely.
A clicking noise in the exhaust system can mean that the catalytic converter is not working properly. If the clicking noise occurs every time you turn the Evo X, you should take it to a mechanic immediately. An Evo X with an attached catalytic converter has a better exhaust system.
Another possible cause of this clicking noise is an obstructive fuel system. The exhaust system should be free of obstructions. The exhaust should be able to dissipate exhaust fumes quickly. The exhaust system should be able to vent the engine exhaust efficiently.
Checking the steering rack position
When turning an Evo X, you should make sure that the steering rack is in the proper position. It should have very little play, and the steering wheel should move no more than 1/2 in (13 mm) without moving the front wheels. If the rack has some play, the steering joint must be adjusted and the clamping bolts tightened properly. In order to check this part, you will need to get under the car. You should also make sure that the wheels are pointing straight ahead.
A rattle on the front might be a sign of worn anti-roll bar bushes. If you can feel the bushes under the wheel, you can easily check them. If they’re not wearing, try pulling back a solid lever and listening for unusual noises.
