What can I do my self to fix. TCS. abs on my 04 ford expedition CLT 4/4

The TCS and ABS are all highly complicated systems that need specialized parts and skills. It is not pure mechanical like replacing oil or tyre to be able to perform oneself. Moreover the ABS and TCS controls may not used in many tropical countries but are life saving in others especially in cold weathers. I would not risk the cost of precious cargo when it comes to unknown systems

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?

What kinda used car do you suggest i buy for use in a tropical country?

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.

I'm put oil for Mator 20/50 and for break dot 4 and I dont known if good or not for toyota corrolla 93

That oil is for tropical regions so it's a little too viscous if you live on a cold country or in winter - recommended is 10W40. The recommended brake fluid is DOT 3. Remove the one you have now and put in the correct one.
