Hey Guys,
got my Galant Fortis about 6 weeks ago. in love again!
looking to do the necessary maintenance on in since I not sure how it was serviced previously.
to the guys with the CY4's what sort of maintenance have you done so far?

I have changed Engine Oil so far. Schaeffers 10w 30.

Thermostat stuck on my old car. not looking for that to happen in this one. any one replaced yet?
got a part number MN187250.not sure where other than DM to get this.

Dip Stick Says J1 CVT Transmission Fluid. I may have to buy from DM @ $126 a Qt.
(Green Fluid) I called a couple places and they have J4 Fluid. I not sure what application that is for.

oh and I also have Rear Axle Fluid to change.
:mrgreen:
not sure what fluid I should use here. Evo men what do you use and how often to you change?

dave its not a ralliart sadly. just regular Galant Fortis - STMHZ Exceed (4WD).
not full time though, ah selector changes it from 2wd - 4wd auto - 4wd lock.
i still not sure what is the difference between auto and lock.

NO, u do not HAVE to buy it from DM

I have seen the J1 fluid at several parts places in south, in 1 quart containers

Ramai's, Federal,

the SPIII coming in gallons now, so maybe the J1 is too (i haven't seen it yet)

because Evo men have a rear diff, doesn't mean u hadda use the same as they do, cuz your rear diff may not be the same.

if it is then, u can

if the rear is rates for synthetic GL5 as the guru said, then AMSOIL :!:

I have bout half quart remain from when I changed on teh Sportero that u are welcome to. always good to have a lil extra to flush out. the AMSOIL GL5 too expensive to buy an extra quart to flush, so u cud have my 1/2 quart

if the fluid comes out dirty, then u cud change it for some cheap NP GL5 and run for 2 weeks then drain and add the AMSOIL

BigZ supplied me

not sure how Mitsu car trannies with transfer cases work, but on the V-series tranny (4WD with range selection) the auto means the VCD is engaged - drive around on hard surface with 4WD, the VCD allows slippage between front and rear drive shafts

Lock, means teh center diff lock is activated (no VCD), front and rear drive shafts are locked, so no slippage in the TC - straight line driving on hard surface

if u felin for a DIY, I have a spanking new oil gun to christen, holla

Guys, the Transmission is a W1CJA. it is a CVT.
Did some digging and found that its the same on a 2.4 Outlander.
75w/90 is the rated oil for the diff according to 1 forum i found.

i was doing some digging on it to verify if the J4 can be used instead of the J1.
other than EBAY i didn't find any.
Called DM they advise that the J4 is not compatable with the J1.
(i fully expect this be proved wrong)

i see Big Z have ah second location in charlieville ill check them for the fluid.

Venum ill make some calls for the J1. i called Faiz and they dont have it. maturas in St james also dont have it, they have J4. ( so what is the J4 used for? CY2A?)

as for the DYI. tell me when you have some time I ready!

In for the 1st time in a while. WRT to some earlier posts I haven't switched from premium to super. One of few perks I have is fuel allowance via fleet card so I have no need to switch as I doh even reach 1/3 my limit on most months (sadly it is use it or lose it :( )

Will be making 2 years next month and now reach 25,000kms.

Hey guys..been a while. I have switched to super, no probs so far. Every two weeks I put in a injector cleaner. Made 5 years with my ride, 140K...no sensor issues...only major issue was replaced back shocks (from company). Anybody recommend a polish to use on a gloss black??

DM picked up the car about 15 mins ago to go get it cleaned and stuff. They topped up oil and put a cap back on. The replacement volume of oil was no more than say 500-700 ml. Should I be concerned about any engine damage or you all think no harm was done. I would have driven for no more than 6-7 kms yesterday evening after collecting the car.

Obviously the DM tech saying doh worry nothing happen.
