Some starters are a pretty tight fit. You need to do the bolts up evenly so that it goes in straight and doesnt jam at a slight angle.

But hopefully it just needs some time to settle down.

I've replaced starters in an 91 NH V6 auto pajero and a 99 V6 auto Magna, plus a few other non-Mitsi vehicles. None needed a tranny drain. In fact, the suggestion that the flywheel is bathing in oil...

My NH 3 litre automatic was a gas guzzler around town but not too bad in the country. Cleaning out the glovebox recently I found records of a 2000km trip around the Eyre Peninsula that I did 15 years...

I've never seen 'Likes' on this forum before, and it only appeared on one of your posts. And I doubt 30 people would have bothered to vote either way. I suspect it has nothing to do with this forum.

You need the seat to be 2" lower, not the car. Theres a lot of space under those seats. I would imagine that the seat frame could be cut down reasonably easily. There should be heaps of seats in...

Maybe the NL is different, but on my NH there is a large nut on the steering box that is used to reduce or increase freeplay in the steering wheel. If this is too tight then the steering binds,...

$4000 seems a lot to replace a couple of heads. (Assuming thats all it needs). But even if it was only $2000 its still probably as much as the car is worth. Unfortunately these older Pajero's are not...

With luck it will just just be a blown head gasket but its almost impossible to tell without the heads coming off. A complete top end gasket kit cost me about $150 a few years ago. If you can do it...

I replaced the head gaskets and had the heads surfaced about 18 moths ago. I even went back in and retensioned them after about 1000ks. And if the head is cracked it sure isn't from being overworked,...
