  • DIY Service

    Hi all,

    Our NP DiD Pajero is due for it's 75k service. It seems to me to be a glorified oil change from the log book and I'm tempted to do it myself. The dealer wants $300. It's been a while since I've done my own service on a car, not since my 20s!

    No changing of timing belt as the DiD has a timing chain?

    OK, what seems to be the oil of choice to use? Synth or not?

    Any traps for rusty players?

    Thanks in advance

    - Rob.

    Yep... in too much haste not checking the oil filter gasket comes away with the used filter and then installing the new filter straight on and wondering why there's a considerable oil leak after engine start up.

    Not that I'd know... cough cough...

        Not miuch to 75k

        Good Oil, MM oil filter and oil plug gasket (about $110-120 total)

        Just do what the glovebox manual says (I can't remember what else is required)

          I can think of the following:

          1. fluids for both differentials, transmission, transfer case
          2. flush radiator
          3. replace any belts?

            1. every 45k (not due at 75k)
            2. every 45k or 2 years max - a MUST DO
            3. no belts unless the rad fan belts are looking bad (not usual for this age or km)

            One other thing is the brake fluid (same as "2." above)

            I just had a look the book says engine oil change and check the rest.
            You may have to do the coolant if it hasn't been remember to turn on the heater in the vehicle - it's straight forward (the drain is right beside the engine oil filter)
