Delayed Starting & Low Idle

Well Growler, once again you're exactly spot on!! I've been visiting at a friend's over the weekend. I parked my van in his super clean garage with a concrete floor. I notice diesel fuel on the floor about where the sliding door is, on that side when I moved the van. I'll check on those fuel lines a...

Delayed Starting & Low Idle

Hello folks, After enjoying almost 7 years of worry free driving with my 1993 Mitsubishi Delica L300, I've got a little glitch happening intermittently when starting it up. Usually I just turn the key, wait for the click and boom, it fires right up. lately it's been turning over for about 3 - 5 seco...

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

This is excellent. What you're saying makes sense. You really have to treat the rust from the inside to do this fix properly. I bought mine with these rust spots on the roof, but over my 7 years of ownership, they've not gotten all that much worse. My van has been rock solid and hands down the best ...

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

Man, you are on top of this stuff Furi!! Do you mind sending me more info on the truck bed liner idea? Is this stuff you can purchase over the counter at like a Crappy Tire or something? I was going to go to Rhino Truck Bed Liners here in Ontario, but I was told it's quite expensive and I don't thin...

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

Hello Furi, I don't believe there was a manual option for the power shades. And from what I understand, it's an extremely complicated set up to service. I have rust on my roof (that started from the inside). One of my shades no longer functions (stuck open), and the others work about 90% of the time...

Relocating from Vancouver to Montreal

Insurance might be an issue as well. Most insurance companies think these vehicles are more dangerous (even though they're not) because of the RHD thing. And I assume they're getting enough business from everyone else, that they're not really interested in insuring what we drive. It's Government man...

L300 Modern Front Bumper Wanted

Hello folks, I'm looking to find a decent used front bumper for my '93 Delica. Currently I have the traditional set up with the bull bars & fog lights. The metal behind the bars is rusting and rather than fix this, I'm hoping to do this upgrade to the newer more modern bumper instead. It looks like ...

Alternator Belts replacement

Hey Growler, I'm only going to change out my alternator and power steering belts this time around as I believe I can do this job myself. I'm at 74K since the last time I had my timing belts changed, so I'm reluctantly leaving this job until next year. I have the link you shared with the relevant par...

Alternator Belts replacement

Thanks joebillhill. This bit of info helps for sure. I dont think I even need to worry about the A/C belt as I had to cut it off last fall due to the compressor pulley seizing. Hahaha

I think I might be able to do this. Wish me luck :shock:

Thanks again for the help

Alternator Belts replacement

Hello folks, I gave that all to familiar squeak coming from the belts of my '93 L300. I've ordered a new set of genuine Mitsubishi belts as well as the power steering belt from amayama. My plan was to have a friend who teaches Auto Mechanics do the job with some of his students. The problem is that ...

Front Bull Bar Removal

Thanks fellas, And thanks for the tips on how to remove the front bull bar assembly. It's difficult without having photos to look at,but it makes more sense now. I work at a local high school here in Peterborough and I'm good friends with the Auto Shop teacher. This might be a good job for some of h...

Front Bull Bar Removal

I saw this stuff at Canadian Tire. And i did some research on how to paint plastic. Seems reasonably straight forward. Now I just have to figure out how to remove the plastic along with the rest of the bull bar..... lol Planning my first canping trip in the van over the Victoria Long Weekend. It's b...

Front Bull Bar Removal

Hello folks, As I keep chiseling away at stuff on my '93 Super Exceed, I'm at the point where I'd like to remove the front bull bar and paint the grey bumper behind it as well as the black plastic on the bull bar itself. I searched for older posts on how to remove the front bull bar, but found nothi...

Wet Floor In Cab Area

The rubber mats look great, and will be far more functional I'm sure. I think I finally fixed all my leaks. Not only did I have to remove the quarter panels, but I had to seal up the drivers side windshield washer stalk. I tried to get at it from the inside of the vehicle, but it's way up underneath...
