    Foggy windshield when raining?

    I got mine polished from there. Had lot of wiper scratches which made night time driving a headache (Previous owner had not properly changed the wipers and used the same set for a long time). That guy did a damn well job removing those scratches. Now the windscreen is like branch new. He did a water repelling treatment as well. All cost me 15k.

    Foggy windshield when raining?

    @Klord As @Dee Jay stated, this most probably be due to deposits of paint mist on the windshield and viper blades itself. Since the garage used a sand paper to remove the paint off the windshield there could be small scratches that are not visible to the naked eye. This makes an uneven surface on the glass. First change the wiper blades and see cuz if the wipers are having pint residue, they will not wipe properly. If that did not help, I believe you need to get your glass polished. I don’t know if RainX will work in your situation but that too is a good option if works. There’s a place in katubedda and kandy called ING Automotive (or something similar) that does glass treatments which I’ve seen does wonders for badly damaged glasses. They are expensive though. You can check out their fb page for details. in the worst case scenario you might have to use a professional service like that to get this fixed properly. Cheers!

    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    Hi machang, seeing this now, when I bought my Lancer CS, I didnt know what oil was used and I opted for Mobil first. Then after few years I switched to Valvoline as recommended by the agent and used it until I sold the car. But did not change the viscosity at that time. It was changed to 20W50 from 10W30 when the car reached 120,000kms as recommended by my mechanic. There was no issue whatsoever with the engine when the car was sold at 225,000kms. I'm using Valvoline 10W30 for the Lancer EX now. The car has run 135,000kms and I'm still using the same viscosity as I was told there's no requirement of changing it at this mileage. I'm no expert but i believe changing from Mobil to Valvoline wont be an issue but you gonna have to be mindful about the viscosity. Better to take agents advise on it.

    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    I got it changed. Its stated in this post. It was a fairy easy job. They remove the left side fog lamp and access the oil pan from there to drain out the oil. Thereafter refill from the top. Oil filter was not changed. In fact it was not even discussed. I think it is not required to change the filter or there is a huge time interval to change it. Let me check and update you. I vaguely remember this was discussed at @Sampath Gunasekeras Lancer topic as well.
  9. Amen to that. Couldn’t have said it any better.
  10. Whoa, this truly is a surprise!! welcome back Sylvi, seeing a post from you after ages.

    ATF Oil Selection for Tiptronic Gear Box

    The oil type is noted on the ATF dipstick in my car. Just check yours or as the above post suggested check the owners manual..

    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    Have few small updates on some new additions I made to the car. She didn't have door visors when I bought her and the window tint was badly faded. So got the windows tinted with 3M film and was able to import near genuine looking set of visors thanks to a friend of mine who is also a car addict. Did another small change, the B pillar area of the doors were in the original body colour and I did not like it at all. So got it blacked out as well. Here are the photos. Before installing the visors and getting the tint done. The visors and plus the tint. As you can see I didn't go for a dark tint, instead opted for a lighter one which cuts out the heat. Also this way visibility during the night time is also not compromised. I removed the seat covers which was there when I bought the car as the were worn out. And got a interior cleaned (there were not much to clean though). All these were done during June 2019.
  13. Damn your car is low!! I guess you’ll be doing touch ups like this time to time Ha ha..
  14. Hope you’ll receive it soon without getting delayed due to seasonal postal rush. Talking about ABS, my Lancer CS didn’t come with it. Drove it for 9 years, had some close calls also, but luckily managed to get the car stopped without crashing every time. In the EX, I was able to avoid two collisions mostly due to ABS doing its job. First one was when I was tailgating a friend of mine doing around 80 (this is something I usually don’t do but we were running late at that day and I was about to overtake him) he suddenly braked to avoid hitting a dog. I too slammed on the brakes and fortunately the car stopped within about a feet to my friends car. The next one was to save a motorbike guy who rode across galle road at a junction without bothering to stop to check the oncoming traffic. That basterd might have been drunk or something, narrowly escaped his death.. So get the brakes fixed soon. Good that the car is not a daily runner, you never know what awaits you in the next corner..
