Just because you live in a tropical country doesn't mean that you have to narrow your choices. It can be any vehicle you can own and drive and it could preferably be an AWD for instance if you'd prefer.

You can take a look at the offerings here if you wish - Good Used Cars There are a variety of cars to choose from and also 4WD and AWD vehicles too.

SOURCE: air bag warning light. sensor issue drivers side.

if your foult is driver side airbag and it is not blown out, you should check "clock spring" wires behind steering whell.
if foult is driver side belt tensioner, check conector underneeth driver seat.
on the end erase foult/s with diagnostic equipment.

SOURCE: Peugeot 205 Temp warning light comes on in traffic. Fan runs

Dont they have 2 lights? like the citroenBX, one usually orange that means it is a litle high and red that means stop.Also the 205s were known for the front of the rad getting obscured by road dirt, how old is the rad? I have changed several where the fins had rotted and blocked.Try a car wash hot lance to clean through the back.

Testimonial: "many thanks. the red light seems to have gone out over the past few days so i will keep fingers crossed that everything has settled down."

SOURCE: Peugeot 206 temperature gauge not working?

it could be a couple of things, first, check the wires to the temprature sender unit make sure they have not broke, as it was sudden this may be it, also it could be the sender unit it self as a freind of mine had with her car i changed that and the one for the radiator switch, but most of the time it will be something to do with the sender unit on the engine...hope this helps

What engine oil mk triton 3.0 ltr v6

i do understand that this is your first question, but there is several countries which drive cars... from tropics to arctic - and all these cars use oil... oil depend on temperature, that is dictated by climate... what year is your car, what model, what fuel - all these variables affect which oil you use...

do rethink your question, state what year, model, fuel and climate you are living in...

i would suggest going to mitsubishi site and research there...

What oil do i put in a 1996 ford courier 2.6 petrol

you did not post in what country and what climate,

if you are in oz, then any oil sae10-40, it is suitable year round,

if you live somewhere where water freeze in winter then winter oil should be sae 5-30, or sae5-40, summer should be sae 10-40,

if you live in tropics where temperature constantly exceed 35c (95f), then oil used should be sae15-60 or even sae20-60.

any brand will do, my preference is semi-synthetics in cars made after 1985, if car is working hard - towing, driving daily short distances - i do change oil and oil filter every 5000km (3000miles), if it is driven regularly and in light conditions you can double these distances.

if you find this answer helpful - why do not vote for it?

Smoking from the hood

Sounds like you have a head gasket problem, as it gets worse it will leak oil and coolant on the exhaust manifold giving you the burning smell, I would suggest you get that changed as soon as you can, going too long can and will cause very large very expensive issues and possibly destroy the car.
