Its one of the generic 2 ton mini trolley jacks. It lifted barely enough to get wheel off the ground and just one notch on the jack stand. Whenever I released the pressure, car came down immediately with a thud. I wouldn't buy this jack, instead spend money and get a proper trolley jack.

Once the car was jacked, I started thinking of overhauling the rear brakes as well since I have taken the trouble of getting a jack and lifting both wheels. I have been having issues with rear brakes, the whole car would make a low frequency WHURRRR noise and shake a bit when braked at "high speeds".

I had tried overhauling the brakes earlier; it isnt possible to use a socket or ring spanner to remove the top caliper bolt since the brake hose is in close proximity. I had tried using a C spanner, that ended up in rounding off the bolt.

This time I wanted to remove the carrier's bolts, then try to dismantle the caliper once its off the mount. Access to the carrier's bolts were also tight and they were properly stuck. Broke out the one meter breaker bar and came out. Took off the pads and separated the carrier, the sight wasn't good.

The rubber bush on one of the pins was badly damaged. Comparison with a new bush :

Everything cleaned and properly lubed. Ready to be fixed back

Moving onto the right wheel, access was even tighter, for some reason the spring prevented the socket and rod from sitting flush with the top carrier bolt. Plus add the fact I have to loosen the bolt by twisting upwards, it was very difficult to get the L rod in place AND slip on the breaker bar.

After 20 minutes of incessant cursing, I got the caliper out

I managed to loosen the top caliper bolt but I cannot remove it without removing brake hose and in turn have to bleed the brake system! What a terrible design decision by Mitsubishi, I wonder what that moron was smoking when he designed this.

I had to return the jack before our mechanic opened his shop so I had to hurry and wrap up everything. I hate to see rusty rotors but it has to wait.

I wanted to test this and see how much shine I can get back just with a coat of wax, so I washed my car and gave it one coat of wax!

It had been more than a year since I had hand waxed my car. The wax I chose to apply was possibly the worst to apply and take off.

I'll let the results speak for themselves :

After a trip with the parents, dropped them home and set off to test how the Evo ECU behaved. I wasnt disappointed, I had raised the rev limit from 6200RPM to 6500RPM and its clearly working. I can finally touch 100 with one gear less so my 0-100 times will be faster? Not that I care. Anyway..



After the testing session, came back home, parked the car and took this video. Do watch this in HD.

So the boots on my driveshaft failed again. This time got it fixed by a professional with good quality boots and metal clips to hold them in place.

The mechanic who took out the driveshaft told me its rare to see a car with such a neat engine, no oil drips anywhere. My chest immediately swelled up

Bouyed by the mechanic's comments, decided to give the engine a proper clean up. It had been over 9 months since I had cleaned my engine, it looked quite dirty to me.

While cleaning the engine, I took out a bit of coolant from the overflow tank; it looked like brown curds..the sight and even remembering it now makes me want to throw up

Opened the radiator cap, the coolant inside was clear. Not taking a risk, got a few bottles of Glysantin G30 for a killer price! Both the coolant and brake pads will go on the car early next week with few other parts.

It was the D-Day for the major service! Instead of doing it by myself, I went to Blackworks and get it done.

Arriving early hehe

I got a new Front O2 sensor from a Mitsubishi Evo 9. Replacing the O2 sensor helped remove the problematic engine response below 1K rpm. Result!

Last year when I took apart the front brakes to paint the calipers and grease everything, I had noticed that the piston dust seals were damaged. I procured a new set of front caliper rebuild kit and it was time to replace them. Since the rebuild kit also had new piston seals, decided to tear apart the whole caliper and rebuild everything on it.

Piston as it is. there is light corrosion which is common for a 10 year old car.

Pistom after cleaning. There is light pitting but it shouldnt affect the piston operation since the pitted portion does not come in contact with the seals. I'm glad to say I cleaned up all the mess without having to use any emery paper/ abrasives.

Insides of the caliper also showed some corrosion; the body of the caliper is aluminium and technically there should not be any rust!

Cleaned off everything, using techniques to safely remove all embedded iron/rust without he use of any abrasives. Any rust on the surface next to the piston will accelerate corrosion and reduce life of the brake fluid.

Both calipers rebuilt with fresh seals

The calipers were reinstalled with Mintex Brake pads. The front brake pads had completely worn out; the wear indicator line wasnt visible on 2/4 pads heh. The rear brake pads had life but swapped them out to an all Mintex pad setup. Reused the brake pad shims from the Brembos since the Mintex pads didn't come with any. Anyone who sees my front brakes will be fooled to believe I still run Brembo pads

Next was the coolant flush and replace. We drained the radiator to begin with. The quantity of coolant that came out was less; only around 2.5-3L. I had asked Chandru to get about 15L of distilled water since I wanted to do a thorough flush and drain. Since we couldn't drain the whole system, we filled up the radiator and bled the system and thought of tackling it another day. Chandru also noticed some "rust" and other crap sitting on the top of the radiator and recommended I use a radiator flush.

Somewhat dejected, I came back home then headed to JC road to buy a radiator flush. No one had it; I saw Xado/Very Lube radiator flush at JK Automobiles, waited around 10 minutes at the shop, no one was interested to sell anything to me. Frustrated, I went back home empty handed and this just reinforced my decision not to buy anything ever for the car from local shops. Buying stuff from USA is easier than getting parts from JC road. Ordered Liqui Moly Radiator Flush from amazon and it showed up tewo days later. Drained 200ml coolant and replaced it with the flush, ran the car for about 10 minutes till the thermostat opened and the flush was circulated everywhere.

I was reading upon the service manual on the process of draining the coolant, there was one step where the cylinder block drain plug had to be taken out. The sad thing is nowhere on the manual, or even the engine rebuild manual the location of the drain plug is given!!!

Drain coolant by removing the plug. but where??

I found a reference in the parts catalog. We looked around the block in that area and could not find such plug

Next day, drove back to Blackworks. This took about 45 minutes giving the flush enough time to work. We looked around the block and couldn't find any drain plug. Chandru had the idea of taking out the thermostat and draining the coolant from the passages, we gave it a try.

Size:  193.7 KB

It was a resounding success! Using his proprietary techniques, he drained out most coolant. I was pleasantly surprised to see no corrosion on any of the coolant apssages I could see, which is also an excellent result. We replaced the thermostat and I set to work cleaning the overflow bottle.

The contents of coolant overflow bottle had the color and consistency of chocolate milk shake, YUCK! I managed to clean it fairly okay.

Pouring the new coolant,mixed with distilled water @ 1:1. Love the reddish violet color! The car took in ~5.9L of coolant, which is very close to the Mitsubishi recommended quantity of 5.96L. So I have another 100ml of coolant left with me if I ever needed to top it up.

Last item of the job was to replace the tie rod ends. The boots of the ones on the car were damaged; although they were working OK, didnt want to take a risk and replaced them with OE tie rod ends.

Last but not least, I managed to connect the AEM wideband to the Evo ECU. Now the ECU can read the AFR from the wideband and I can log it using Evoscan without using any serial cable. Next upgrade for the ECU will be a patch for a narrow band simulator based on the wideband signal. If it works, I can replace the front O2 sensor with the wideband and get more accurate fueling.

Brilliant job!!

Sir how do you clean your engine bay?? I also love shiny engine bays, and hence would love to know about the procedure and products you use to clean the grime.

Dear Shashiji,

I'm afraid I cannot elaborate on the products and techniques because this is not the right forum to discuss these topics. I can only share before/after pictures. Most of the techniques are unique to me, many products used are dangerous if not handled carefully by someone experienced in such products.

I guess you take pleasure in seeing an engine bay, here are some pictures on how my engine bay started. It took me two whole days, 8 hours a day working on cleaning just the engine bay to get these results. This is not for everyone, not everyone appreciates this much detail, unfortunatey I am one of them and I will go to pretty long lengths to get the results I want

Here's at least one vote to getting a generous second serving of engine work pictures and narration. Please keep the updates coming. The pictures are 'petrolicious' and the storytelling is instructive and inspirational.

True labor of love Sunny. Love the way you have maintained your ride especially when most of it was DIY ! My personal opinion:I do not think the beige key fob goes well with your interiors, black would look much better.

This is THE best detailing work of the engine bay I've seen, by far! Some of those aluminium pipes shine as if it's some piece of silver jewelry. Jaw dropping stuff.

Are you polishing with hand? Or using some tools/ machines?

What about the plastic and rubber parts?


Do you happen to know the part number for the black outside door side plastic trims just above the door handles? Mine has got faded badly and the plastic seems to be changing properties.

The mount I was using is called GKZ Magnetic Phone Mount. I used two of them since I would mount a tablet on them. I took them off since they would cause the GPS on tablet to not work; reverted to a velcro based mounting. Gave them to a friend and he's using them on his OnePlus 3 without issues.

I hate black leather accessories I was tormented enough during school days into wearing black shoes and belts, I dont want anything black now hehe. I was hoping they'd be tan but they're more brownish Orange. Its tie to change the fob since its days are neared, will look at other colour options.

Did you mean the engine bay? If yes, its all by hand. Using pressure washer/machines to clean is seriously not recommended. Plus this level of detail can only be achieved by hand.

A small update; the WHURRR noise under hard braking did not go away post rear caliper rebuild. I was convinced that the rear brake rotors were warped.

However after sunday's drive, I did couple of hard braking maneuvers and the noise did not appear! It appears the Brembo brake pads were the cause. They still have 40% life in them but I am so glad I swapped them out early!

The brakes have sharpened a LOT post front caliper rebuild and Mintex pads. I'm not sure if the cause was new seals on the calipers or new pads, a friend helped get me new rear caliper rebuild kits as well as few other goodies from USA. Rear caliper rebuild will happen soon!
