    Broken center cap for alloy wheel

    Thank you Davy, The center caps are plastic. I am also worried about the integrity of the rim and I am not a big fan of modifying anything that comes stock. I will ask a few places to see if the clips can be fabricated. Thanks again.

    Broken center cap for alloy wheel

    Thank you for the reply. I looked around darley road and panchikawatta for another center cap but was unable to find the right size/ pattern etc. Does this kind of screw/tapping work on alloys require a lot of precision? it seems that i might need to tap 2 screws into the rim. Are there any places that will do this for me properly or can give me some advice after looking at the rim.

    Broken center cap for alloy wheel

    Hi, The center cap clips for my rims are broken and are not holding on to the rims. Will it affect the wheel balancing if a tiny hole is drilled (screw tapped) into the alloy so that the center cap can be screwed in. Any help is much appreciated. Iced-T

    Mitshubishi Orion Engine 4G15

    My lancer c12 uses a 4G15 engine. The car has been with us since 1996. The engines are very solid and parts are easy to find (water pump, timing belt components, gaskets etc). We have not had any issues at all with this engine. The car travels from Colombo to Negombo everyday on the highway at highway speeds. Goodluck.

    Engine Tune Up

    Hi Mazda2, Did you replace your tyres? (Normally a tyre change would be around 40,000km) sometimes a significant drop in economy could be the result of a lower quality tyre being put on to your car (or tyre pressure not correct). Also check the exhaust line to see if there are any leaks. (highly doubt this though since the car is so new) Regards, Iced-T

    Gearbox - Lancer C12

    Hi Davy, I have been always using ceypetco 90 gear oil for this car. This was always the case on cold mornings with this reconditioned gearbox. These few days it has been quite cold in the mornings maybe thats why I feel it more. I dont recall anything like this with the original gearbox.

    Gearbox - Lancer C12

    When the car is cold, shifting from gear 1 to 2 and down shifting from 2 to 1 is difficult. Its slots in though but its just a bit difficult to engage (no grinding or anything) But when the car is driven for about 10 minutes it sorts its self out and the shifting is fluid. I am aware that the oil needs to be sloshed around a bit for the gears to get lubricated properly. But I was wondering shouldnt the gearbox oil have a minimum or optimum operating temperature? ( for example when the ignition is switched on the gearbox oil starts to warm up ). Regards, Iced-T
