  2. +1 You really need to clean the area first and observe the hose with pressure on it. Is the level in your power steering reservoir going down. I personally wouldn't change anything until you know there is a leak/problem. Does your steering system give you any issues?

  4. i like your painting in the engine bay! what did you use? ----- Your photos are for the air conditioner line, i believe because of the bright blue cap. The one i show is the one that goes from the Steering Wheel Reservoir into the Oil Pump and then down to the steering wheel mechanics. I am uploading more pictures right now and a Video to be more precise. Sorry my english, not my native language. As you can see, there's a little gap in the top-right photo. Is that ok? It looks like unscrewed a bit... but my main worry is that all the hose looks wet. I thought it was air conditioning line, so i was like yeah it's ok since it's cold in a heat environment it gets wet.... But it is not the air conditioner line. >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Video: -> Hose Oil Leaking Appearance.. <<<<<<<<<<<< I'll be waiting for more replies... please, help me out
  5. Here is what mine looks like. Looks like either someone used the wrong style connector on yours or didn't crimp the sleeve properly, if that even is a crimp sleeve
  6. If you are trying to figure out if that connection is leaking clean the area, turn the car on and have a buddy turn the steering wheel to full lock for a couple of seconds. At full steering lock the system pressure should be highest, so you may be able to see fluid leaking from bad connections. Just don't hold the wheel at full lock for too long, it's not great for the steering system. If I remember I'll take some photos of my bay for you tomorrow

  8. Hello everyone, i alwayd expect to find answers in a forum where we share the same car and we are not always dealership friendly when it comes to maintenance of our cars.. I am being told i need to replace fillers inside the steering wheel system in one place, and in other that i have to change this hose in the picture. He said this hose has been changed its not the original. I dont remember anyone touching this from my car.... Still, it looks totally out of normal. Theres a small gap and it look dirty wet like oil. Can someone show me pictures of how its supposed to look? Any replacement recommendation? Here it costs like 30 bucks each foot of hose and i dont know what quality they are plus the closing clip it has (currently the one it has doesn't look like its closing or doing its job. Theres a small gap in it) Check the photos. Thanks
  9. Hi, I'm a little new to the tuning game, and I have a 2.4l 2010 gts and I was looking into options on putting in a turbo, I was going to go with RA turbo and aftermarket intercooler kit but this issue I always run into is the ecu, do I use my base ecu or find a RA ecu with the boost controller. Having a base lancer I know I can't use the cobb tuner... any ideas on what options I might have.

      Following this as well just got a full turbo set up from a ralliart do u no if a ralliart ecu will work with the imbolizer?

  10. Hi Everyone!!

    I'm new to this forum, and I have a question (actually, a few, but for now, only this one),.

    At the moment, my Lancer runs on a set of Motegi MR& White 16X7 and I want to upgrade to a set of NICHE VERONA wheels with the following specs:

    NICHE SPORT WHEELS M150 VERONA MATTE BLACK

     

      •  

        Niche_Verona_DDT_A700-thumb.jpg

      • 17x8
      • Black & Machined with Dark Tint
      • MED /HPO
      • 5 x108 /112 /114.3 /120
      • 205/40/17

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    But the seller tells me that they won't fit on my car, mostly because I have a 4 lug and these rims come only in 5 lug. I don't really know if the car has enough clearance on the back to accommodate the width of the wheels. I'm thinking on converting to 5 lugs and might as well to disc breaks on the back while I'm at it. I want to go a bit wider and do some fender flares eventually (not that drastic, but just enough).

    Could I do this upgrade at the moment (and maybe just do minor adjustments on the fenders to have clearance)?

    Any suggestion will be gladly accepted. Thank You in advance guys.

    Rick

  15. Hi guys, I've noticed this squeaky sound from before but i didnt really mind it since it was kinda silent but as time went by it got louder and louder so i took a video of it and i was wondering if anyone from PL could help me determine what it is. The sound seems to be coming from below the intake port

  19. Hey Everyone! I have a key fob that came with my 2010 Lancer ES and it wasn't programmed to my car. I tried going through the steps online to program it, but no dice. I asked someone and they said it could be that it needs to be reprogrammed to the ETACS? My question is, do you think this tool could do it? I've been reading up on it, but I need someone else's opinion. I went to a key shop place, and they wanted to charge almost $300, so yeah, no. I'd rather spend $100 then $300, so what do you guys think?

    Been over a year since I've last posted on this thing. Last I left you all, life was less than desirable. Stability has finally returned & I'm both mentally, physically, & financially stronger. I did have to take some steps back, but I'm starting to move forward again. But enough about that WHAT ABOUT THE CAR? Well. I've done a good amount to be honest. Nothing Earth shattering, but it's still progress. I finally installed paddle shifters on the car & love them. It's definitely given the car a different driving feel. I also added this cheeky rear license plate frame to stop people from asking me if it's an Evo. I took a couple random shots of the car outside of work Had this dude park next to me at work Plastidipped those door sills I cut many moons ago & finally installed them I added some of that EZ Lip to the car. It looked cool, but didn't last long. It got ripped off trying to get into the parking lot at work LOL I also added a Hydra badge up front & replaced the trunk emblem with one as well. While fighting the personal things I had to fight, I started watching all the Marvel movies to take my mind off of everything & help me escape. I added a shark fin antenna that looks out of place Bought an Android 7.1 NAV unit finally. Installed so easily, but I need to find a better equalizer app. Not a fan of the stock one. I finally got around to changing out the Tsudo N1 cannon muffler because I got tired of the highway drone. Got me a nice Magnaflow muffler instead & the guys at C&D Masters in Brampton did an awesome job installing it for me for a great price too. I ended up selling the rear diffuser I was working on because it wasn't going to work with what I had planned. But I ended up buying this one instead. Plastidipped it black & installed it today. And this evening while washing the car, I had this sunset as my backdrop. And this is were I'm currently at folks! I do still have a few little side projects that I'm working on, but I'm nearing the home stretch for completion. I have some coilovers that will be going on next year as the only major thing that's up next. Other than that, it's all just minor things that need to be done! I've just passed 8 years with this car in my possession, & looking back at photos from when I first got it, it has certainly transformed. It's been with me through the good, the bad, & the REALLY bad. There were times I thought about selling everything & returning to stock during those bad times, but I'm glad I didn't have to get to that point. Hope you enjoy.

  25. exhaust problems

    ahh another exhaust question on a car forum, what a classicI bought a 2011 mitsubishi lancer gt (2.4L, 5 speed manual) from a crash auction (it was just hail damage, saved me some money), and I have fixed the car up, the only problem with the car is the exhaust. It's a magnaflow but I have no idea which model, just know it has a lovely tip and axleback. Anyway the problem is that my exhaust literally sounds like a blender on high, like a very small child with a high voice kind of exhaust. Almost sounds like its just air going through it, very strange sound. It doesn't sound like a loud fart cannon, i've personally never heard of an exhaust sound like this, neither have any of my friends. The thing is I don't wanna get a new exhaust and throw away the magnaflow (don't wanna sell due to rust on it, as the car came from colorado, which also explains the hail damage), I simply want to deepen and improve the exhaust note. The thing I was thinking of was adding a cold-air intake, or maybe unequal length headers? Will this help deepen my tone or transform me into a fart box civic boy? Has anybody had any trouble with their Magnaflow exhaust sounding like this?relatively new into the car scene, and just looking for helpful suggestions

  27. HELP: Steering problems!?

    Alright ladies and gents... a final update for you guys. So after all that b.s. listed above, I decided to go to an out of town Mitsubishi Dealer to get my car looked at by a fresh set of eyes... and thankfully they actually acknowledged that my suspension WAS indeed faulty. Within a few hours of having my car I got a phone call and they informed me they will be replacing my whole suspension struts, and shocks under warranty! Im so pumped boys! After 2 months of not being able to drive my car (It literally almost hucked me off the road numerous times) It seems I will be getting my car back in 45 minutes and all SHOULD be well. I guess for some reason either the initial dealer I went to which was Tri City Mitsubishi.. <--- be weary if you are around this dealership either didnt take the time to actually look over my vehicle.. or quite simply didnt even diagnose anything and tried to tell me it was all good. Just be cautious with dealerships boys.. im sure you guys all are and already know. But Ive bought 2 vehicles off these guys and they wouldnt even aknowledge a valid warranty claim. 5 star review to Surrey Mitsubishi, BC Canada. Thanks for your help though guys I appreciate it.
  28. Trying an engine swap...

    +1 Our cars didn't come from the factory with RWD. If you have a drive shaft then you're AWD. Otherwise you're FWD (which I believe your 2010 ES is). By upgrade internals I'm talking about physical parts inside of the engine (ie: cams, pistons, rods, etc.). Basically build the the block you have to handle the power you want, up to 500hp. Anything beyond that, go ahead and do your 4B11T swap along with an AWD conversion. Also, that 500hp limit is there for a reason. The strongest clutch/pressure plate combo that will fit our cars will only hold 440 lbf of torque which is about 500hp on our cars. Plus, that's really hard to keep to the ground on a FWD car, so anything over that will require an AWD conversion. Again, let us know your goals and we can steer you in the right direction. There are a ton of people here willing to give you info so keep the questions coming!
  29. Trying an engine swap...

    All non RA/Evo lancers are FWD with later models having AWD. Though some have done RWD conversions with their Evos.
