When you change the oil, sub. a quart of lucas oil for a quart of oil. The lucas oil additive will coat the motor and help stop small oil leaks. It will add years to your car!! Use it in the trans. too..(lucas trans. additive)

Have 84k miles and am wondering when do I need to replace the spark plugs and wires, timing belt (replaced last at 45k) and any other preventative maintainace? Any information will be helpful. Thanks for...


Plugs and wires at 50,000 miles, the timing belt should last 100,000 miles. I am curious why the first one was replaced at 45,000? I am thinking you may have replaced the serpintine belt.

How often do i need to get a tune up and what parts do i need to buy for the tune up?


once or twice a year is good for an actual tune up which is new fuel filter, plugs, plug wires, & antifreeze.
About every other year, you should replace tranny fluid and filter. Not bad idea to have coolant and tranny flushed every 2-3 years too.

There is no problem with the car at all i just want to keep the car in great condition so i was just wondering what regular maintenance is the most important and needs to be done regularly besides the oil...


New timing belt and serpentine belt every 50,000 miles. New filter with every oil change. Replace the air filter when it gets so that you can't see diffuse light through it. Watch fluid levels. Have the CV joints and rubber boots checked every 20,000 miles or so. Check with your transmission servicer for fluid and filter changes. Replace platinum spark plugs every 100,000 miles along with new spark plug wiring. Check the codes if the check engine light comes on. Replace the fuel filter ever 20,000 miles--more often if poor fuel quality.

Whats included in a 120k maintance


This almost always if different depending on the shop you take you car to. The best way is to look in your owners manual, pick your diving conditions, normal or extended use, and see what Mistubishi recommends. Should be at least, oil change,rotate,brake inspection, air filter, spark plugs, plug wire set, timing belt. On a Mits with over 100k miles I always recommended Distbutor cap and rotor, Transmission flush(for auto), Induction flush.
