SOURCE: oil change

If you love your car, then use ;
5w 30 up to 10w 40. Ask in a store for this grade of oil and use a semi synthetic based oil.
good luck.
ps, your drivers manual will give you a good idea.

SOURCE: 2003 Mitzubishi Lancer oil pressure light only when braking

It might be oil pressure sensor or oil pump is faulty. Also might be problem with winter conditions driving oil gets more viscous. If you recently did oil change might be the reason for that too. Change the oil for 5W-30 (for winter only), instead of 10W-30. If problem persists check/replace oil sensor if wont help loook for oil pump.
Please kindly let me know if the information was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

SOURCE: 2004 VW Passat engine cover at bottom of car

yes that is very possable because that cover would have to be removed for the oil change. the beast cure would be to get a few cable ties or zip ties to tie it back up

Road noise 2006 Mitsubishi lancer vrx

I bought a Lancer VRX last month and it got a clunk sound from the front end as u turn or reverse 4/5 times from the drive way. I wrote a email no reply from Mitsubishi. But i was able to get the car in for a check up today with Preston motors Dandenong. The mechanic went for a test drive with me and he heard it too and i have recorded the sound too. Still not fixed after coming home. Really appointed feel like burning this car down now. After spending so much on a brand new car and time dropping the car off for inspection this is what i get. Any one who is planing to buy a lancer be careful. Id rather go for a toyota I made a bad decision by buying this car. its only down 1200km
I feel like taking the car to the local mechanic and getting it checked.
When i bough the car it came with 2 screws missing as they removed the door panels for tinting. got that fixed. Today i got the 1st free service done but they forgot to reset the service time indicator. Any one else with a vrx having this problem please message me on
so we could look into this matter as a team. They only want our money after that its our problem. I' am so upset right now i don't have the luxury of time to take this brand new car back and forth for problems. Not to mention the amount of road noise. I could have put up with that if not for this suspension issue.

Have an 04 lancer. Oil light comes on sometimes just flickers, but only after warmed up and at an idle. driving down the road the light stays off. Oil never low and just changed with filters, brand new...

Replace the oil pressure sender. The sender is what is turning the warning light on.If you replace the oil pressure sender it should fix the flickering light problem. If it does not , the light is an indication of more serious motor killing problem. Fortunately, the sender is under $10 and usually fails before the actual oil pump.
