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


Recommended Posts

Maintenance Update:

Mileage:  147,325km

Recently I replaced tyres and wheel balancing with wheel alignment (front wheels only) done.

Last Friday I observed an oil leakage and a broken boot. By December 2021, car has been used for 14 years and now I see mainly issues appear with rubber parts which under go natural weaken/decay due time factor irrespective of the mileage done. I always try to replace genuine rubber parts even they are costly but keep long last.

Taken car to the agents and was lucky to do a list of repairs within the day.

(1)    Power steering oil hose replaced ( Part No.: MR510411) and power steering oil replaced

(2)    Replaced right side rack end boot (previously had after market one) – Part No: MR297971

(3)    Replaced Rocker cover gasket (due to oil leakage) – Part No.: MD342281

(4)    Replaced Air Filter – MR552951 (The recently installed VIC air filter was shorter in width and did not mount well and started to absorb air from the gap and two technicians pointed out it just by listening engine sound.) I used this VIC part number in the past and (slight dimension change was there) This time unit has a huge deviation in dimensions.

(5)    Wheel alignment done (all four wheels)

(6)    Normal service done (changed engine oil with oil filter , washing and interior cleaning)

It was a costly and tired day , but was happy as I could done all jobs within one day.

Wow that price for the power steering hose! 🤑

I had a similar leak on the same hose when I had my CS3 and fabricated a new hose for around Rs. 500 several years ago. The banjo fittings on either end were crimped onto a new hose. :)
