    High pressure washing of engine bay ok or not?

    Heat also work on plastic and make it off- colour. You can't use same plastic material which used to make water reservoir for wiper, for making PS fluid reservoir. They should use an advanced plastic which resistant to PS fluid to make PS fluid reservoir. But when they add additives to resist with PS fluid, then they may loose colour property. Final plastic formulation is a combination of our required properties up to a certain limit , and one additive may limit the the adding of another additive . So this decoration is difficult to overcome and in Mitsubishi this is very common (including mine). As far as I know no other permanent option ignoring it or replacing it with a new unit. But I found below video from the net. But I am not sure it will work on PS fluid reservoir or not. Different plastics behave in different way.

    My New Ride : Mistubishi Lancer CS1 GLX (A/T) YOM 2007

    21,000km done under my ownership and taken car to the agents for lubrication service (Odo: 112,900km) I didn’t observe such a brake oil level dropping, but service people found small leak from rubber boot kit at rear brake cylinders. (When gently press the rubber part, oil start to leak) Brake cylinders were taken out and cleaned well. No deep grooves on inner wall of the brake cylinder, but they took it to lathe shop and polished the inner wall of the brake cylinder. Polished the inner cavity of the brake cylinder. After 11 years , Cup boot kit for brake cylinders replaced. (Mitsubishi Part No.: 4610A078) Cup boot kit (Repair kit) = Rs.2,932/= (for both sides) Labour cost = Rs. 3,174/= Total cost = Rs.6,106/=

    ABS of Viva Elite

    I have seen only one difference between maintaining ABS variant and non ABS variants of Viva Elite at Unit#d Mot#rs. For variant with ABS, at every lubrication service, service people open and take out rear drum covers and clean rear brake system with Air. No such cleaning on non-ABS variant. It does not cost you. If you can afford go for EZI model which consist of ABS & dual Air bags.

    Morris Minor engine

    Check with Sumana Motors , Panchikawatta too. I remember someone called "Kuruppu" had many cars for parts and even I saw the yard years ago. I mentioned it in an old thread but now I cannot recall it. Check with member @MasterDon too.

    My New Ride : Mistubishi Lancer CS1 GLX (A/T) YOM 2007

    Two Engine Mounts Replaced – Odo:109,400km I observed a little vibration on idle and after checking with the agent, they confirmed two engine mounts are needed to replace. Lancer CS engine is mounted on 04 engine mounts. Replacement of two engine mounts mounted on central axis of the car is very common requirement in this stage and other two mounts can be used further. As per member Trinity, he is still on his originals(left and right side engine mounts) with odo over 200,000km. Replaced two engine mounts at the agent today. Parts Detail: MR554244 - BRACKET,ENG ROLL STOPPER – Rs.11,400/= MR554746 - BRACKET,ENG RR ROLL STOPPER – Rs.12,011/= Labour – Rs.2,034/= ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total - Rs.25,445/= Now car is very smooth even on idle. Power Steering Fluid replaced. (Power Steering Fuid – Rs.1600 + Labour Rs.1200 = Rs.2800)

    Parking meter... Forgot to pay ?

    You can hit (two vehicles) and run - Need to pay just Rs.5000/= penalty You park one hour and go without paying - Need to pay more than Rs.10,000/= As far as I know, even Department of Inland Revenue can charge late penalty for taxes up to maximum of 100% of the tax which was delayed. If you use a newly constructed building without Certificate of Confirmation (COFC) , you have to pay amount like Rs.250/day. (AFIK) But here you have to pay a charge of Rs.1080/= for every single day keep adding. Do CMC or . Tenaga keep reserve same parking slot for the suspect until he pays and come back? Don't they use same parking slot for other customers and earn money after the suspect left the parking lot ?
