    Owning a highly technical, performance vehicle like the VR-4, you have to keep on top of your routine maintenance to ensure smooth running, and try to stop preventable issues from occurring.

    With the cars being so old now, and not sold in the mainstream, even Mitsubishi dealers don't know much about them, and there's very few specialists, so being able to maintain your own car (or find someone able to do so) is imperative. Undertaking the right checks and maintenance at the recommended intervals is critical, so we thought we'd share part of another of our huge history of archived content.

    The VR-4 is a well engineered, high tolerence machine - and running high quailty oils of the correct grade oils, changed on schedule, is imperitive for the health of your car.

    So - here's a list of all the oil types and capacities, as well as recommended oils that our members have found over the years have ...

    Here is a simple illustration of the OBD-II port located on the underside of the dash, near the driver's left knee:


    Grounding pin 1 is the way to obtain any stored error codes. You can ground it to a chassis point, any other earth, or most usually (because it's closest and easiest) pin 4.

    I use a short piece of wire with stripped ends for the desired effect. A paperclip may also suffice. Some of you may even choose to put in a little switch, so it can be turned on and off as you please!

    1. Earth pin 1, in your chosen fashion;

    3. You will then have the flashy dash (lights flashing should be Engine Management Light, TCL OFF light (if equipped), 'Skiddy Car' light, 'N' on auto selector (if applicable), AYC light (if equipped), ABS light, SRS light;
    4. Any light that is flashing regularly (about twice a second) has no stored codes;
    5. Any light flashing irregularly, will cycle through all stored codes, repeatedly;
    6. Each code is two digits, and zeroes are not used.
    6a. The values are technically Hexadecimal. In almost every case, only 1-9 are used (i.e. the lowest code possible is 11, and the highest is 99), but some codes use A-F, which will be 10-15 flashes (i.e. 1F is one long flash, and 15 short flashes);
    7. Long flashes (about a second or so each) indicate the first digit, while short flashes indicate the second digit;
    8. There is about two seconds between each stored code;
    9. Codes are shown in ascending numerical order;
