Alignment in East van?

You need to get the alignment specs for you van. Most places only have Cdn based vehicles in their computer systems.
If you can find the specs I think many places should be able to do it. The key word "IF".

Delica or Pajero Diesel for Calgary Weather??

I'll concur with a Deli in the cold. A proper battery set-up helps as well. in -10c mine would start but it always took 10+ attempts. They key is letting it warm up properly and keeping it warm. I invested a few bucks on a piece of sheet metal and made what I call a "Winter Damn" that I mount down l...

ICBC Approved Auto Body Shops

I'm taking my van to M3 Collision in Richmond. They've worked on Delicas before and have no hang-ups about JDM's. Most of what I need is panel fixing not parts replacement.

I'll post before and afters when complete.

ICBC Approved Auto Body Shops

Well, I've recently had my L300 smacked on the left door. Got the claim and got a list of shops from the Corp. Before making dozens of calls... Does anyone know an approved autobody shop (in the Vancouver/Burnaby area) that deals with Deli's? I was searching here and the few leads I found no longer ...

New Deli From Japan

A friend in Japan found it and my lovely wife was there at the same time so it was pretty easy. I just had to wait a few weeks for her return.
The model was about $25

Manual glow plug switch schematic for super quick system

I think it was around $140 with the shipping. And a reasonably quick turn around.

Manual glow plug switch schematic for super quick system

A little searching will get you this info. Yeah! I suppose you can by-pass, which a lot of owners do, but I had the same issue a few years back and went to Daniel (Victoria) W1ng Elec. He solved the issue and it was reasonable. My issue was leaking diodes. I think it would be better to get it back t...

Recommendation for brake work

Lazy Green, Shingo Auto (Burnaby) does all my work, from oil changes to... are you ready... Front upper/lower ball joints and frnt brake rotors. Honestly (I don't know about the L400's) but for my L300 they were $70-80 each. So replaced as one of mine was too far gone to turn. That seems pretty chea...

Recommendation for brake work

Fix it before it gets worse.
Shingo Auto in Burnaby can do the work but you may have to supply the parts.

bucket list delica

Teeko, Welcome and Happy New Year. Well you've narrowed it down to about 3/4 of all the Deli's out there. The price disparity you see could be between private sales vs. dealership. I've owned an L300 for about 8 years now. I bought mine from a trusted friend who imported. Whichever model you choose,...

how do i find info about van using my v.i.n.

patriceboivin said " another note... Mitsubishi Canada appears to know nothing about Delicas -- they can't find parts, they don't seem to talk with Mitsubishi Japan much if at all. They want us to just buy RVRs, Outlanders and Mirages. Mitsubishi Japan seems to like enthusiasts and looks after them ...
