    Why a Mitsubishi Montero / Pajero is the best buy in class

    PCV systems can be notoriously finicky, as @shadow79 correctly points out. The best thing to do here is to put a vacuum gauge on the dipstick pipe- it is likely that the engine vacuum is excessive, which must be checked against service information. If it is, the PCV system is sucking oil out of the engine, and the only way to fix that is to check the entire system for anything untoward. However, a good starting point would be to replace the PCV valve.

    Easiest way to test shock absorbers without shaker plates is to look at the top of the shock where the rod comes out. If there is oil on it, you need to change it. Next step is press hard on each corner of the car and bounce it up and down 4/5 times. A bad shock will keep bouncing after you stop pushing it up and down, a good one won’t bounce.

    Here are my observations: He clearly didn't follow the path on extreme right and thought of taking shortcut. OR he followed the path but due to slow speed he slide down on soft patch. Ideally at that point, he should have come down slowly to make another attempt without fighting gravity. Due to slip face, its difficult for him to climb and still he fought the slip face with lack of momentum. Lack of experience, made him think he can climb up and steer sharp left on such short space. In end while reversing out of such situation, steering should be straight and come down slowly.

    @shadow79, you are absolutely correct with the vital checks. I have actually made both checks already and there is no smoke in either case. I assume I got the oil level reduced bcoz of long duration i.e. 6 months use without a change.

    Dear Friends, Honda Accord 2012 is reducing engine oil - this is what I was told upon last oil change from Adnoc Lube Sharjah. I use "Adnoc Voyager Silver Semi-Synthetic 10W/40" which is rated to stay for 7000KM. My vehicle took around 6 months to make it to 7000KM after which I went for oil change. Additional FYI, that my vehicle recently passed RTA test and there is no smoke what-so-ever from the engine. Compared to Toyota Corolla 2009 (my last car), I also feel that my Accord 2012 is bit sluggish at start when take off at a signal but later it's good. And I heard from mechanics that initial run of HONDAs are always bit slower than TOYOTAs. Any recommendations on how to deal with this engine oil reduction?

    Latest update: I have ordered the Rustoleum clear coat can and a touch up pen for fixing the last 10%. Touch up pen was too dark, as I tested on one deep scratch and stopped. Clear coat backfired badly, although I have researched and watch tons of video on how to use it properly but still I failed. Spray Can was delivering the mist and big load randomly and dripping all over the hood. Hours later my hood ended up looking like a faded paint to have uneven patches of clear coat all around. Tried fixing that with scratch out polish and grinder, no benefit and after a while I give up as the damage was way beyond DIY scope. Btw according to web review people love rustoleum product and company claims that you can use their new technology can in any angle (even upside down) for consistent finish Lesson learn: I should have tested the spray can on wooden or metal piece first and let it dry to notice that uneven delivery and dripping problem to return the defective can. Yesterday I dropped the car to paint shop in Aweer for full repaint of the hood, hopefully I will get it by tomorrow.

    Damn spent 20k for a plastic lambo body! Bet if they searched hard could have gotten a wrecked or non working older lambo or some other sports car and fixed it up over time. Would be a long term father and son project too and in the end there would be a proper sports car

    This Topic made me Nostalgic, made me Miss My beautiful Pajero. How much I struggled to get her where she was and made @Barry work till he got his PHD in Pajerootics. But Now I think Tahoe will Lead me out of Depression. By the way after reading this if any one planning to buy 1 Full Option 2007 Pajero with Leather Seats and sun roof with very low mileage and well maintained do let me know.

    still a lot of farmers driving troopers in Ireland. Rust is the big enemy but it’s to be expected on anything 20 years old. I have a friend with. 3.0 TD running propane injection and he has been mudding in it every weekend for the past 6-7 years with no major issues.

    The Castrol 5w-30 I tried was to be changed at 10K KMS but I found it decreasing oil level too. I am using Adnoc Voyager Silver Semi-Synthetic 10W/40 (a bit yellowish in color) in my vehicles since 2012 and don't have any complaints in any other car even if I hit a 100KM more than the scheduled mileage. So, I don't think changing oil to HONDA Engine Oil would make a big difference.

    Hi Xaf, the correct term is a "reducer hex nipple". Have a look below: https://www.amazon.ae/s?k=reducer+hex+nipple&ref=nb_sb_noss From the looks of it, this bolt is an M10. I think your thread in your roofrail is M12 but i am not sure. If so, then you need a hex reduce nipple from M10 to M12. A few months back i got some hydraulic hoses made by INFLEX, located in Al Quoz. 25.142727, 55.236064 These guys really should be able to point you in the right direction. I saw cabinets full with these things at their shop.

    But a snatch strap has a 20% elasticity, it is different from towing rope, that is why I am a bit confused.
