I was going through threads and discussion happening is tilted more towards BS4 vs BS6 and subsequent effect on the diesel injectors.
Nothing mentioned on BS3
BS III and older standard fuels had lots more parts per million (ppm) sulfur content in them. Those engines were well lubricated to that extent because sulfur lends a soapy-slippery feel to diesel.

No less than Hormazd Sorabjee have opined that the progressively lower sulfur levels in higher standards of fuel should begin to harm older engines.

But our member pious_devil had done his research and shared in the forum how Oil Marketing Companies would add synthetic lubricity additives in BS6 diesel so as to maintain lubrication levels. You can search for his thread here on the forum. So long story short - we should be good even with BS III engines in the BS VI era.

Default Re: Buying a used Mitsubishi Pajero SFX

There’s a 2009 Pajero 2.8 for sale - 2nd owner, first owner in MH, re registered in TN, claimed 1.4 odd lakh km, at a newly opened dealer just opposite my house in Chennai.

Mostly looks decent - a gruff engine that could urgently do with filter replacement but sounds reasonable, but the ABS light remains on when driving.

Can some kind soul please help look up history for this in one of the Mitsubishi dealerships?

What’s the usual cause for ABS light on here, a brake system failure or some sensor I guess?

A common problem in Pajero, need to connect with diagnostic syste.
Just FYI cost of one wheel ABS sensor is ~ INR 12,000/
Honestly its difficult to gauge condition by looking at pic. Take it to a Pajero specialist (anyways you will take it to him for service next time onwards) for inspection.
Please check gasket area for oil leakage or tell tale signs of engine being opened in the past.

11000kms in 11 years
Are your sure that's not a typo? Missing one more zero?

I like the feeling of sitting high up, this will work for me.[/quote]
yea mate, its a typo, i have done 110000 kms

and if you are 6 Ft, i suggest you avoid it, as I am 5.10 but any more would be a squeeze
