Searched but could not find if this has been discussed before.

Is the Indian Pajero's 2.8 TD 4M40 engine OBD-II compliant? Need this input as I am considering a TouchScreen carPC using Centrafuse Softwared and one of my main requirements is OBD-II. Thanks in Advance.

Thanks Devang. If you are talking about a ELM327 USB interface, a dear friend already has one that he will loan me. Trying to understand if the 4M40 is OBD-II compliant. A general search on the net seems to indicate that it is not compliant since it is an old engine. However, this old tech engine was made available in India quite recently, so am a bit hopeful

Ok, Hoping it would work. If that doesn't work, there is also Launch DBSCar. Its original from launch diagnostics company. Its costlier than ELM327 but has its own app in play store & supoprts non-OBDII cars also. First 6 cars are free then each car diagnostics is paid. I just checked it has Mitsubishi listed in its software but need to check if your specific Pajero model is listed or not.

Let me know how it goes..

Moderator note: Dotty post. Please use proper punctuation instead of typing like.. this... Thanks.

The diff lock actuators are triggered by vaccum lines, hard rubber pipes in the engine bay and metalpipes in the chassis area. Flashing lights are mostly indicative of leaking lines caused by rubber pipe failure generally. Door rattling on the Paj is generally due to the rubber grommets on the doors falling off. Maruti Van door gromttes are a good fit.

My Pajero rear side seems to be skitting when I run over any road humps. The tyres seems to have lost reinforcement as the vehicle seems spongy. Could the skitting be due to weak tyres ?

It seems like a weak suspension / worn our shocker. Provided the tyres have adequate tread and are not hard with age.

Hi,

Took my Pajero for servicing. It had clocked 127000. And the service adviser said, it requires a major service (Oil filter replacement, air filter replacement etc..). Later, he called up said the front drive shaft boot is damaged and requires replacement and quoted Rs 7K for the replacement part. He also said the AC condenser fan seems to be weak and replacement would cost Rs 18K. I was little taken back by the cost of the prices. Does the rubber boot really cost 7K and the AC condenser fan 18K ? Do we get OE parts outside for a lesser cost ?

Thanks
Satish

Go to an "axle" specialist. He will regrease the front axle CV, and put on new boots for 1000 INR all inclusive.

Hi all,
I've recently picked up a 2009 Pajero SFX with genuine 44k kms on it. the vehicle is in great condition but I want to give it a complete service before using it regularly.
Really appreciate some inputs on the following (in random order):
  1. Recommended Engine Oil (Weight/Grade)
  2. Transmission Oil (Weight/Grade)
  3. Coolant temperature ratings
  4. All Rubber bushings and mounts (if needed)
  5. Tyre change to 31" AT's.
  6. 3M Interior clean
  7. Battery change
What else should I look out for??


Thanks

Front axle boot kit (right side) for my Hyundai Tucson cost Rs. 1222 (OEM Hyundai pricing, job done at the ASC).

Pajero parts can be more expensive as they are supposed to be more rugged(?) Worth checking the prices in Mumbai. Also check with bhpean "Kash" who is in Bangalore.

Use motul 10/30
Any standard coolant is fine with the car.
Transmission oil is not reqd to be changed at 44k.
Please check the front bearings, clean and grease them for longer life.
Check the suspension joints - how much life is left with them (there are 4 each on the front side). Shockers are sturdy - nothing shd hv happened to them.
Brake pads for pajero gets either worn out or very hard every approx 25k - 30k. So it might be a good idea to check them.
I use michelin latitude cross. Reasonably good tyres but not A/T. Am looking for bridgestone dueler a/t myself.

Yes... I forgot to mention that I'll be changing the break pads as well.
PM me the tire size / spec you want and I'll check if its available in Bombay this weekend.

Hi,

First of all congrats on your purchase.

I have been looking for second hand Pajero, but am a little worried about the maintenance and spares.

If you don't mind, can you PM me the price you got your vehicle at.

Thanks.
