Brakes fine even after 135,000km although he is re-checking next time. I think a disk is sightly warped
Last service:
Ac/Delco filter- $28
10L Penrite- $69
Plug washer- $2
Labour- $0
Warm up the motor, run the passenger rear tyre up on a ramp so that the oil runs to the plug, and leave it for half a day.
Gees it's good to be retired!!

Not Pajero related, but my daughter has just got her Kia Optima back from Automasters.
The engine warning light was on and they replaced timing chain and related parts .
I thought 123,000 kms was a bit soon to replace a timing chain, given it's about the regular kms to replace a timing belt.
Another unusual aspect was the invoice.....just a total charge of $1940. No breakdown of parts and labour.
There's no doubt that they replaced the chain because they showed old parts to my son in law.
Unfortunately I'm too far away to do anything about it, all seems a tad sus to me.

This is the only time it was more expensive then the dealer quote ($800)
Anyhow, with just over a years warranty left, decided it was time to get back to servicing the car myself.

Gouging is not against the law, but it should be.

I understand the costs of running a workshop, and Mitsubishi recommending valve adjustments every 30k doesn't help (whether it's needed or not.)
But generally its oil and filter, air filter, fuel filter, check this and that, that'll be close to a grand thanks.

I bought my donaldson oil air and fuel filters for $95 delivered. Oil was under $100. So assuming the workshop gets all these cheaper (ryco) where the hell does $600 dollars more go, if not doing the valves.?

Just finished doing my 70k service, and whilst having the thorough look around, I have found the coolant overflow bottle cap gasket was borked.
(and a screw missing from the fuel tank guards)

Can seem to find the replacement part online, could anybody point me in the right direction?

Partsouq.com is a great place for genuine online parts, I use them all the time.
Put in your VIN for easier searching.

NX Paj generally appear to be ok, they always need some adjusting, although they rarely are tight, but the MQ and MR Triton inlet valves are always tight at service, and the exhaust valves are slightly looser than spec.
On the two checks done on ours they were both a little tight, so have them physically checked occasionally as this will cause excessive wear

That model Optima engine (and shared with Hyundai Sorrento) is prone to the upper self adjusting chain tensioner failing. End of engine has to come off to replace and they will always replace the chain in case it has been damaged.

Son did this recently on his girl friends car and its a decent size job. Technically its an engine out job but he disconnected everything from the engine, drained fluids, hung it on an angle in engine bay from engine crane and was able to do it in car. It still took most of the day so yes, with parts would have been best part of $2K with service at a repair shop.
