Turbo CJ Lancer Servicing Complete Thread

Postby ofey » Sun Jun 05, 2011 2:36 pm

*DRAFTING*

Background
Similar to the NA Lancer Servicing Complete Thread, this is the same but for Turbo CJ Lancers i.e. : The RA and Evo X (GSR and MR).

In recent months, there has been more questions about the servicing cost for the CJ Lancer. It would seem from many varied reports that different dealers charge a different amount for their servicing.

There are also a certain set of tasks which need to be achieved at each service.
The dealership mechanics do take advantage of these set tasks and their associated consumables to milk out their profits.

The only consumable in a NA/Turbo Lancer you are bound to retain using is the OEM Coolant during a coolant flush.

You cannot retain your radiator warranty if you provide an 3rd party premix even if it meets Mitsubishi standards.


Here are some of the consumables you can pre-buy::

Now the discounting might seem low, but don't forget that the rebate from you providing these yourselves is massive.

The + in case anyone forgets is + 10% GST PLUS whatever the dealer or service mechanic wants to add on. The rebate amounts I've supplied you are what 2 VIC service dealerships have estimated.

Image
MR922838 Oil, Tans 5L SP3
RRP= A$35.20+
CCJ= A$35.00
Rebate ~ A$65+

Image
C0002610 SSTF-I, DIA QUEEN 4L (you need 8L)
RRP=A$214+
CCJ=A$205 (so A$410)
Rebate ~ A$680+

Image
3775610 LSD Gear Oil - DIA Queen 4L
RRP=A$45.50+
CCJ=A$45
Rebate ~ A$65+

Details:

A possible alternative for this may well be Motul 90 PA SAE90 but at A$20 a bottle of 2L, I don't see the need to risk it.
OR
CASTROL LSX 90
@ A$38.95 for 4L from SuperCheap Auto


Image
MR936572 Coolant, Pre Mix 5Lt (Green)
RRP=A$41.20+
CCJ=A$35.00
Rebate ~ A$55+

Image
2513A040 Case ASSY-M/T Case Oil Filter
RRP=A$181.00+
CCJ=A$175.00
Rebate ~ A$235+

Details:
Made by IBS Filtran

Here's the part on their webpage! It's the 2 bits on the right of screen.

So here's the markings I see on the thing:

Filter:
IBS Filtran PA66 GF30
7M5R-6K870-AA

Sleeve:
IBS Filtran PA66 GF30
7M5R-6C631-AD

And guess what?
I found one here.

Seems it also goes on :

I went to a couple of dealership Mechanics to ask. I asked how much they charged on the line for Radiator coolant And it ranged from A$45 - > A$55 + GST.

So if you don't take their coolant and bring your own, you're only paying A$35 for the 5L of coolant.

Thereby saving A$20 or there abouts.

So yes your interpretation is correct.

yes.

For engine oil, I can imagine. They have to buy from a third party i.e. Castrol

But for all the rest of the stock parts like the coolant, I scratch my head.
All they do is carry a bottle from parts to the service bay OR they could even have bought a drum *sigh*

Money making... .

Spare parts sell the product to service at full price, so spare parts makes a killing in profits. Service then sells it to you for the same price they paid, however they make a profit by charging you 6 hours labour at $90/hr when it took a $14/hr apprentice 3 hours to do the job.

Good work Ofey, I think ford is a major shareholder in getag so maybe these filters would be cheaper through ford?

Just send off some email's to some ford dealers in Adelaide for the Case ASSY-M/T Case Oil Filter ... First response

Hi the filter you are after is $129.47 and would have to come from Melbourne it would need to be pre paid before I can order it I have assumed it is an LV focus

129.47 is getting better i send a photo of it to him so this should be the same part

Just a question Ofey, what's the first item for (Auto transmission fluid)?

The RA and X either have SST or manual (if you have a X GSR).
Cheers,
John

It's Polish Zloty on that site... 40.0375 AUD

Just asked if they will ship 5 of them to oz.

115.00 PLN = 40.0375 AUD
Polish Zloty Australian Dollar
1 PLN = 0.348152 AUD 1 AUD = 2.87231 PLN
