Hello,

I would like to know about things.

For VR4 driving as daily drive, atHot weather condition ,
(Mostly had drive for very short trip, I took her out for long walk 1 or 2 times per week. Use 92 Octane )

- Which type of Engine oil is suit?
- Should change engine oil after how many mileage?

- Which type of Automatic Transmission fluid is suit?

- How often should the radiator be flushed?

- How often should the filters (oil, air) be changed?


Please, kindly share me the knowledge if u could. Cos, I don't know much things and I am start learning.

You should always use a full Synthetic oil I use Lucas oil but any high quality synthetic oil will work. With synthetic oil Iíve heard you can keep it in the engine for close to 15k miles but I would say change it every 3k to 5k miles just to be on the safe side. Also when changing the oil you have to change the oil filter at the same time. The radiator flush is good to do once a year along with a thermostat change but not necessary. Depending on how dirty/dusty the type of driving you do change the air filter every year. Better yet get a K&N air filter that way you can just wash it out and reinstall it. Most of what I say is ideal not a must but if you keep on top of these simple fluid changes your car will run better and last longer, with the Mitsubishi reliability not being the best these things will help a lot.
