    Nick Mann replied to a thread Timing Belt Frequency in Engine
    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.

    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.

    Yep, 5 years. The mileage stated has varied a couple of times, I think between 45,000 and 54,000.

    In my opinion there is no need to change the wavespring. Many boxes have the better one in already but I can't remember how to tell. Tappets / lash adjusters make an irritating noise but are not detrimental, I'd only change them if the noise is bad.

    Or just join the two bolts together with a bit wire as a temp measure until you get the correct fuse. And don't let you mum touch your car again. Without supervision.

    Something like this from eBay But I don't think it is 120A Just type in fuse and the the current rating eBay will through up some options. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cartridge-Fuse-32V-120A-Male-Terminal-Blade-J-Case-Box-for-Truck-/363274243465?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286

    I don't know the ins and outs of the ayc electrical system but it can't be difficult to do as you can buy an ayc bleed box on eBay for about £150. Looks pretty crude. To be honest. The problem is no one has a wiring manual for the vr4. There is one available for the UK spec V6 but that does not have ayc. Maybe a Evo wiring manual would have all the info in, but I don't have one of those either.

    the reason for me making the COP kit is because the standard mitsi coil packs are stupidly expensive at about £160-£180 each, if you can evern buy them any more as i believe mitsi have stopped producing the standard coil packs so all the one you can buy now are new old stock and they will run out very quickly. my coil packs on the VR4 are failing and i needed to replace them for my own use. so i thought if i need and COP kit then other people will need a COP as well. but there is a massive...

    i an ship to anywhere in the world at the your expense. i have not worked out the exact cost, i have enough parts for 4 full kits with coil packs. i am hoping the kit will come in about £200 for full kit with 6 coil packs. this is just a rough guess as i will have to go through all my paper work and do a proper costing i will offer the kit without coil packs. Just wiring harness, mounting brackets and nuts bolts washer. i will offer the kit as wiring harness only. i have got a lot...

    Plus one for swapping the cups. Unless you plan to accelerate hard in reverse this should be a good and very cheap solution.

    So that age car should have a gearbox speedo sensor. If it was in the UK it would have likely had a converter fitted to the loom near the gearbox, the loom near the ecu or behind the ash tray, or directly behind the dials. If your new sensor doesn't work then I'd visually check the cables next.

    Assuming you are talking dump valve or blow off valve then yes, Evo ones work fine.

    if you want to remove the immobiliser you have to find the immobiliser box, unwrap the tape from all the black wires from the immobiliser box and trace them to where they connect to then once you find the original factory wiring you can cut the immobiliser wire out and join the original wires together and the car should start. this will not be a 10min job as the installer normally tries to make the immobiliser install invisible.
