you need to change the balancer belt and pulley as well

if you don't you will end up with that belt slipping and hitting the Timing belt and its bye bye engine

buy the entire timing kit check ROC in the Bamboo or Maruds in Marabella.

update...bought all my parts by Maruds and used them.....however even though they stated their stuff was original I dont believe anything was original mitsubushi isnt spelt mitsuboshi like on the original belts they sell. this is commonplace in Trinidad and I just hope the parts last for the next 100k. The packaging is mitsubushi but the stuff inside is not.

The belts I got were genuine though.
Sorry you got fakes. Hopefully it works as well, for all we know both the original and the fakes getting made in the same factory.

Serviced my van at dm and my fuel economy decreased before it use to be. 10.4L/100km. Can anyone tell me what's wrong. I am also hearing the injector pump more.
I did an injector cleaning, intake manifold and egr. Changed oil and all filters.

It just reset. Doesn't mean that it will stay like that.


That is an average based on your driving style. Give it a while and it will come back down unless you drive hard.

Bro I think you're best calculating your fuel economy manually. Those computers aren't always accurate.

Just did a nice extensive service on my sportero, aside from the normal mtce stuff - egr clean, intake mani scrap out and clean, man the truck feels really good on the powerband now.
Purring like a kitten.
Know what I loved? Even with a badly clogged egr and intake, she never smoked. Ever. and was still getting ~600 km/tank

These trucks are awesome.

Could be the coupling or the column itself, which is a collapsible column

Isn't the column designed to collapse in the event of a crash? Wouldn't welding it be a bit risky in that case? Just asking eh, when ours became too annoying, we just replaced it because we didn't have the patience nor time to look into a better solution.

I was informed of the risks but financial constraints force me to weld it until better can be done.

I have a L200 sportero 2008 4wd manual transmission. I have owned the vehicle for about 2 years and one day the 3rd and 4th gear sychronizer hub stripped out and I wasn't getting 3rd and 4th gear. I ordered the part from Diamond motors and replaced it, it lasted three weeks and stripped again. My mechanic is at a lost and so am I. Thousands have been spent. The gearbox functioned perfectly up to that point when it failed. The quest for a solution continues...

Fellas.... looking for some insight. I have a 4d56 that i does interfere with a lot. The engine working good but i am getting some blow by via the pcv vent due to increased boost... Hence i installed a catch can. The vehicle began smoking with the catch can installed. I taught it was because the catch can was not baffled. So i installed a baffle within the catch can n then reinstalled it. Same problem, lots of smoke. I decided to install the catch can n let the outlet vent to atmosphere.... same problem...
lastly, i disconnected the catch can n then let the pcv line vent to atmosphere.... LOTS and LOTs of smoke. i taught the engine failed how bad it was. i even saw spots of oil on the side of the tray (side mounted exhaust) and oil itself on the end of the exhaust.
i then removed the catch can and connected the pcv directly to the intake and back to normal... not the slightest wiff of smoke and the van operates normal again.... any ideas what may cause this?
