    I've used Mitsubishi genuine SP-III, Millers, and CarLube in mine in the past, and all have done the job reasonably well. I did, however, fit a gearbox oil cooler almost immediately after buying the car, and I think this has helped the non-Amsoil fluids in my case. If you're running without an extra cooler... But... I have been a passenger in a car that's had regular use with Amsoil, and it's just that little bit better. I think I'm going to be an Amsoil convert when I get mine back on...

    I'm not usually one for over-zealous editing of historical posts - but that one seems to have slipped through the net of saying Dexron fluid. So, I've abused my powers, and have performed an edit to clarify to not use Dexron fluid!

    Hi, I am also a believer in Amsoil lol! :) if poss can you put up the spec like operating temperatures etc. There are cheaper ATF that meet the standard and state they are designed for Mitsubishi and are replacement for SP-III, but many people want to upgrade the fluid to aid the working and the lifespan of the autobox.

    I agree with Adam and have used Amsoil for years without issue and know it's good for our cars. This is why we recommend it. I hope you've found an equally good ATF which will provide an alternative option for owners. :happy:

    I like amsoil as it was recommended to me about 10 years ago and I use only this since, engine oil keeps engine internals exceptionally clean also seen abuse (well did couple track laps with it) and it serve well, also gearbox oil been used here since I remember and do well, even 'cure' couple boxes where owners **** themselves thinking box is scrap and it was much better 'fixed' by simply switch to amsoil. Regarding this MPM oils, I would happily put it in my box as its meet 'Mitsubishi...

    Hello everybody........... Not wanting to tread on toes or upset 'conventional thinking' as a relative newcomer but... I have been restoring/repairing/servicing etc etc FTOs for twenty years plus and have owned around thirty in that time and 'serviced' those of friends and they use the fWD F5A42/F4A42 INVECS II gearbox a relative of the VR4s. As far as ATF goes I have been using and had no problems with the fluid I have bought from my local factors (exact type to follow as for the love...

    Original UK Mitsy guide was 5 years/45k miles. Then changed to 54k miles. In the southern hemisphere they quote 100k kilometers, so 62k miles. I have seen quite a few cambelts over the years and have never seen one in bad condition after any of those times/distances, so no need to be overly cautious in my view.

    Well after 15 months of COVID-19 and uncertain restriction going abroad, perhaps the NC500 is a perfect solution. If we want to do 500 miles and little else you can do it in a 3-4 days but you miss out on visiting interesting places/breweries/coastline/hill/lochs etc... Prob a week at least if not more allows leisurely pace and time to visit the various places of interst en route...

    Thats the thread that got me confused, it recommends dexron 3 for AYC. But I've read other threads that say its not suitable. Its all a bit confusing. Is there a definitive list of which spec fluids are to be used where, because there are so many required on the drive train and I keep reading conflicting information and people seem to call things by different names even Mitsubishi manual is confusing on the spec of the fluid and where it goes. I'm pretty keen to get fluids changed this...

    AYC clutch pack requires ATF, most people recommend Amsoil, which is very good. Make sure you can get the fill bolt open BEFORE you drain it! Amsoil ATF handles the high temperatures much better than other ATF's. It's the ATF in the pump circuit from the reservoir in the boot that may help with the worn pump error. This needs bleeding which can be a bit of a pain. Some good advice in this thread -...

    Just to clarify because im getting a bit mixed up. It is the AYC clutch pack fluid I should change and only an sp-III spec ATF should be used for that? Or am I getting mixed up? because i just opened an AYC service guide that recommended dextron 3. Cheers Steve

And now not a Mitsy at all in the garage - the Sportback has gone.. But we have had a Mirage in the family for some years...

    You can also pull the fault codes and see what AYC codes there are. It is most likely a tired pump which can be resolved with one of Malc's adjustable switches as already mentioned. The pump reservoir is behind the right hand side boot panel.

    Cheers, I really appreciate the help and advice guys. I did have a quick look for the reservoir in the boot while I was doing a show and tell with my mates, but didn't find it. I will have another proper look tomorrow and hopefully do the AYC oil change. The pump oil change looks quite involved.

    Start with AYC oil change in the diff and the reservoir in the boot, that may fix the issue. After that, as Louis says, it may need an adjustable pressure switch. MPBVr4 may have one available.
