It will do it, but a slipping torque converter will produce heat. It's not great practice to let it do it for an extended period.

Bear in mind too that the OP's vehicle is an NS which has the...

Not really. In certain conditions the torque converter will unlock in 5th rather than the box downshifting to 4th. The slipping converter produces heat and it's often more economical to manually...

So, the answer to the question about how you remove them if you are on a long steep slope and require consecutive recovery runs is, you can't.

With regard to sarcasm in written words, it's generally not that easy to pick up on, particularly when you take Poe's law into account.

Yeah, I get that's what you are saying. The issue is there is no such thing as a fixed gear CVT. I can't find anything on the Mitxubishi site that explains exactly how the engine directly drives the...

Your words....

Seems we are both right? Though how something can be called a CTV when it only has one gear is beyond me.


It appears the petrol engine only drives the wheels through the 1 gear...

You have the wrong end of the stick about CVTs.
CVT stands for "continuously variable transmission", not "constant variable transmission".

Saying it's one gear is completely wrong. It's a system...

Like Chris, I've had both.

Whilst the Triton may be a bees whatsit more narrow than the Pajero, the back seat is way more comfortable for 3 kids than the Pajero. The centre position in the Paj is...

I don't have my NS any more, but from memory there is a section in the manual regarding the DPF regens. I reckon there is a minimum speed for it to initiate and continue a regen, but it's less than...

The KO2 is a much heavier and more aggressive tyre (load rating of 122 and pretty blocky tread pattern). The Pirelli looks to be a bit more...

The receiving sensitivity can vary a fair bit between different brands and models. The Auscb one picks up transmissions almost as well as my inbuilt Uniden.

They are a very well made unit and quite a bit cheaper than the big name brands.

I have an Elocker and it's been terrific. I tend to engage it before I approach a very steep climb, or before I venture into a bog-hole. It always fully engages before it's needed for me.
