Does the fuel filter need changing besides timing belt?
Posted 20 March 2008 - 12:59 AM
my opinion on this would be "yes", but please check the manual
what is the suggested interval for all changes. that's the best we can do
to keep our cars in good shape. in seremban we have a new mitsubishi
service center and i'll be going there soon to check out the prices and
all. if the service seems better and cheaper than eon, then i'll change
my service center. does your area have a mitsubishi service centre?

oil is good for next 5 years?

they still waiting for the hard and soft-wares. At least we have an
authorised competitor. EON SBN. is bearable if the service MGR. is around,
but all hell broke loose when I have a BAT. earthing defect on 10 March
08. I managed to jump start the car and drove to SC at about 9 AM. Mgr.
was on leave, no dedicated Mit. personnel around - foreman on TRITON 3.2
trng. mechanics on leave. Only one person at reception as one on approved
leave and one on NO-SHOW LEAVE not even a courtesy call! The one person
lose his cool as he is definitely not suited to handle customer and he do
not have empowerment to instruct workers to attend to jobs. Ended up after
pestering and begging and 1 hour later with a self-tapping screwed into
the battery negative terminal just what AH CHONG/ALI/MUTUSAMY MOTORS could
have done it. But this is the MAINT REP. of MMM and charging RM300 for
front brakes pads chg. where one can purchase the OEM Sumimoto Japanese
pads for RM145 at spares shop. Told that terminal could not be tightened
and no spares available. But I told them that the wiring crimpings have
loosened and migrated and there is smoke coming from the connection during
engine starting. No one could reset my car ECU as all present not trained.
Went on holiday with family. Called Mgr. on rtn. saying do I need to bring
attention to MMM to order spare. Told no need and he will look into my
case. Later told to bring in car for his report. When asked how is that on
a normal workday no personnel trained to attend to MIT. vehicle?
He said that is acceptable. Instead of replacing the part he repaired the
battery negative clamp. But the wire insulator is still migrated from the
clamp. I am saying that the repair does not restore the condition to the
original manufacturer specification. I will be lodging a report for MMM to
replace the harness assembly and they be responsible for any subsequent
damage caused by the repair. Why buy a Japanese CBU when still subjected
to our FAMOUS PROTON VALUE SERVICE?? Pls take note that as per MMC
service booklet LANCER GLX could have its engine oil and filter changed at
15K KM or 1 year whichever sooner if using oil of grade SE or higher and
not necessary synthetic.

the mitsu service centre is now open in s'ban. last week i when
there to check out the place. they don't have any cars there but at least
the people were nice and got me all the qoutation that i need for my
timing belt change. they are still new and i'm not so convinced that they
know everthing but i dont have a choice, their price is cheaper and they
get all their parts directly from mitsu unlike eon. i've just made an
appointment to sent in my car for timing belt change this coming friday -
28/3/08. i hope they do a good job.
eon people told me before that there is no cvt gearbox oil
filter in the glx but upon checking with the mitsu centre, they have
confirmed that there is a filter and it cost rm160. the total estimated
timing belt change with all belts, oil seals, bearings and labour is
around rm600, which i think is reasonable.

lancerbm, every auto trans incl CVT that has fluid circulation in a close
circuit has a fine metallic filter which will normally be cleaned or
changed when the GB is disassembled for repair/overhaul. It is an
excellent idea to change it ocassionally but it is not mandated by MMC. As
for the timing belt, for me it will be beyond the 100K/5 yrs warranty and
there will be plenty of competent workshops that can perform the change. I
am still sticking to Mitsu. authorised workshop because of the warranty.
RM600 will be on the high side for the 4G18 engine.

No separate service center here in ipoh except new MMC showroom.
All parts are ordered from MMC Saujana Resort, Shah Alam.
Can u give a breakdown of the Parts No & Price that u got?
1) fuel filter
2) micro filter
3) timing belt
4) seals (including gasket?)
I agree with Leehk, lets stick with it, so long the car still have
Posted 25 March 2008 - 04:42 PM
good to hear we all care for our cars and only wish to use
genuine and the right service centres. i agree with leehk that rm600 is
on the high side but if i can be assured of quality and assurance, i
really dont mind spending a lit bit more. i'm going to confirm again
about the gb filter and if it really is the fine mesh metallic strainer,
then i dont think i want to change it but if it is any fabric material,
then my option would be to change.
mykar, i'll give the full breakdown once i've done my service. at least
we'll have a base line to work with. i do wish other glx owners can join
in this forum as all of us can learn something new from one another.
anyway, thanks guys.
