Which ATF fluid in Canada?

I went to one mechanic (leaving names out here) who wanted something like $400 for a filter + THREE tranny flushes (he insisted the "wrong oil" was in the gearbox, which is odd, since it was OEM! and I don't know why THREE. He wanted $160 for each flush). I went to another, much further away one, wh...

Depo LHD headlights for L400 post-facelift Delicas (1998+)

So as I was importing my Delica, I inquired locally in Vancouver, and I got inane quotes of $500 per side (PER SIDE!) for a set of left-hand drive headlights for it, plus installation. I thought this was highway robbery, so I trawled the Internet for hours on end, and I finally sourced a kit from a ...

Which ATF fluid in Canada?

Considering a transmission oil flush. Car is 20 years old (1998 gasoline model), though only covered 15,000 kms. Full maintenance history and it doesn’t look like it ever had a tranny flush. What oils are approved that I can get in Canada - and should I even be doing this at 15,000 kms? (what about ...

Delica Space Gear L400 fluids

Didn't see a thread on this, and my L400 manual is pretty extensive, so thought I would post this here for reference in case anyone else needs. Engine oil: 5W30 (for cases between -30C and +40C) or 10W30 (-20C to 40C+). 4.5L for 3000cc gasoline, 8.3L for diesel. Auto transmission oil: 9.3L ATF SPII-...

DRLs, what else for importing a L400 into Canada?

Hi all, So as I posted in the other thread, I finally got myself a 1998 L400. Working on getting it imported into Canada now. I want to do it with the lowest possible cost, as, well, I figure it'll cost me a good arm and a leg to drive it around, so I'm trying to be frugal. What do I need to get sor...

New owner - what to do first?

Thanks. Rats, the timing belt is a $800 or so job, isn't it? I was kinda hoping that it's something that does not age by age, but by usage...

New owner - what to do first?

So I managed to get my hands on a Space Gear, after trolling these forums for a while. Woohoo! Took some work to get exactly the car I wanted - I was trolling the auctions across Japan... after incessantly researching trim levels, I realised I wanted a Super Exceed (Long if possible, but no lower th...

Delica L400 (Space Gear) trim levels?

I'm looking to buy a L400 in Japan, and I am completely lost at all the trim levels. Chamonix, Exceed, Super Exceed, Royal Exceed... what's the difference between all of them? There's an article that comes up on Google, but it's about the L300, so I'm not clear if it is the same for the L400 or not....

Are my headlights legal in bc

Reviving an older thread, but I'm just beginning to look for an L400 to import. My father really wants one, and seems to want to drive half of the world in it (literally! He wants to ship it here and there and just keep driving in it!) and I want to help him do it. I'm located in Japan, so I am like...
