Re: what oil type
Go with the shop manual's recommendation - it's put out by the manufacturer. If they list different viscosities for cold vs warm weather, you may benefit by following that if you live in a climate with cold winters (ie, 5W30 in winter, and 10W30 in summer).

Hi. Hope the oil wa drained at the recommended service intervals? Have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge from cold start up until she warms up. The pressure should be slighly higher when the oil is cold. But keep the rpm in that range, and see what the pressure gauge shows.
i think this would be an expensive excersise,try removing the fuse to the central locking , because if you change the immobiliser system you will loose the central/power locking any way, i don't know what problems your experiencing but i've done this on our hyundai coupe because of immobiliser problems and unlocking drivers door manually ie with the key has cured our problem ,worth a try i'd have thought
mcdevito75 here, Your local library will have a manual for your car, but the way you speak, sounds like you need the actuall shop manual for your Mitsubishi, and That shop manual is only available thru Mitsubishi dealership..
this is personal for all mechs,but a cambelt change,all oils and filters changed,check brake pads thickness and discs for pitting or scoring,then you only need to change bits as /when they wear out.....
