    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    Tempting, right? But ours being autos would make the swap rather complicated I think. The 4B11 was offered with a manual but not with an automatic, it had a CVT so we'd either have to get a manual box or the CVT meant for the 4B11.
  2. Not really, I've heard that the issue with the alt belt adjuster of the WagonR is caused because it doesn't have adequate covering; many people have experienced the issue after hitting a puddle or getting the engine bay pressure washed from underneath

    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    The ultimate repair/ moderate upgrade 4A91 1500CC engine swapped with 4B11 2000CC non-turbo engine. I don't know the owner - just a random reg number look-up
  4. Just make sure it won't fall off, get some more cable ties to secure it in place if necessary. I don't think this is that much of a cause for concern but get it repaired at the first chance you get
  5. What could possibly go wrong, the worst that could happen is you losing the entire piece before you get it repaired... It's just a plastic shield that protects the engine bay from splashes and such
  6. Looks like the engine under-guard, previous owner must have bottomed out the car and broke it. You could get it plastic-welded for cheap rather than replacing
  7. Could you post a wider shot so we can see where it used to be?

    Well the logic of using de-ionized water in cooling systems is its reduced conductivity neh? I have a brake fluid tester which tests the conductivity of fluids - (it tests the water content of brake fluid by measuring the conductivity of the brake fluid). Tap water makes the tester light up as a christmas tree while the distilled water I use reads as having 0 conductivity so I'm guessing using it won't hurt the cooling system as long as the correct coolant concentration is maintained

    Yeah maybe that's the case I would've bought a premixed coolant had there been 1l containers of Mitsubishi super long life coolant which is recommended for the Lancer, but the agent only carry 4L cans of the stuff. Couldn't find an equivalent coolant either (the workshop manual of the Lancer calls for " high quality ethylene glycol based non-silicate, non-amine, non-nitrate and non-borate coolant with long life hybrid organic acid technology" - the only equivalent I could find was Valvoline zerex asian vehicle coolant which doesnt come in 1l containers either so in the end I resolved to use distilled water rather than using a wrong coolant. If you're going through the coolant route make sure to find the manufacturers recommendations for the EC. Mitsu super long life coolant is blue so the green coolant used in your EC might be different

    How come salt (NaCl) is an ion though?

    What is the difference between those two? How does it affect the cooling system? Almost all battery water bottles sold in SL say "distilled water" on the label though
