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.?
