Re: CVT is sh*t

The CVT in the Pathfinder is quite heavy duty considering. Car has 202 kW and 340 nm torque, abs a towing capacity of 2700 kg. Not overly impressive typically, but shows what a heavier duty one can do. Despite the x-tronic branding it's still Jatco.

Re: CVT is sh*t

The Nissan CVTs are particularly bad. I know someone who had the new Pulsar (now gone) and within 2 years the CVT shit its self, luckily covered by the warranty, still they were without their new car for almost 2 months! The Lancer and other Mitsubishi CVT's are the same as used in Nissan. Mitsubis...

Re: CVT is sh*t

The CVT needs to be matched to the right engine and vehicle. A low powered engine means the CVT needs to be in a lower ratio for the same effect. I suspect a 140 kW engine with say, 250 NM of torque would be ideal for the vehicle weight. There are heavier duty versions of the CVT like used in the ne...

Re: Anyone in Victoria available for a tyre experiment?

If the sidewalls are soft it would absorb more noise than the same tyre with stiffer walls, at least you'd presume. However, there would also possibly be more lateral movement. I'd guess it's the tyres. Keep in mind the 215/60 R16 will fit and the extra 5 percent width may help. Also they are cheape...

Re: NEW LANCER-Eclipse Cross

Since platforms are kind of modular (Lancer/ASX etc), no reason why they couldn't do one. The issue is sales, but that's only because they end up diverging the products too much like the updates on the ASX not transferred to the Lancer. Even if the parts are slightly cheaper logistics of parts makes...

Re: Timing Chain Pre-Tensioner Recall

The recalls were issued today. Just curious, when they do they mail out, is it Mitsubishi relying on vehicle registration information, or is it based on purchase information whereby if you move it will be sent to your old address?

Re: Lancer "gone by end of 2018"

They should have made a car half way between the size of the Lancer and ASX, and having it modernised of course.

Re: Tow Bar Setup Advice

I guess directly from behind it doesn't obscure the number plate? If it does they could decide to fine you. Another reason to have it is the boot and only installed when required :).

Re: Exhaust

Hot dogs don't remove much sound as the hot dogs rely on absorption of sound by the packing material. There simply isn't enough there for this effect. Hot dogs are therefore more about cleaning the sound a bit. Larger body resonators may help, they're closer to being straight through mufflers which ...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Realistically probably should have been around $350. In any case, compressors are expensive new, second hand may be an option but risky, and again there's likely more than one system used. Have you checked the compressor model number? Be careful that they do it properly with lubricant and the proper...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Quick look, $600 is way too much for the 135k service. Also the $150 is excessive, especially to diagnose what you already know. Just think of what they'll charge for the repair!

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Repco places that do AC do a great job, and properly. If the compressor is seized, genuine is super expensive, and many places won't like fitting a second hand one. The compressor in the Lancer is pretty reliable though, so a decent second hand one should be okay. There's possibly multiple incompati...

Re: Air Conditioning Stopped Working after weird noises

Possibly the compressor is stuffed? It sounds like it was seizing, which is why the engine revs dropped significantly (drag), and it finally gave way and you lost the gas. When did you last get the AC serviced? Also, when you got it done was it refilled with the correct gas? There are several 'new' ...

Re: BOOTS. In and open.

That's what I meant. I guess it depends on how strong they are. Upgraded gas lifters are probably easier
