Re: Tapping again and squeeky suspension

Hi Dave, If tapping noise is more prominent when accelerating, check your intake and manifold gasket as it might be a leak from the exhaust side of one of the cylinders. Do you smell any fumes? When you have a small leak, you can hear it when you accelerate and load the engine. That will get louder ...

Re: Delica Rocker Arms

easiest way to diagnose engine bearing failure is to cut the oil filter open to expose filter element and look for metal fillings. If you find it, bearings are possibly gone. If none, then you're lucky. It could just pin the wrist pins or worst case piston slap.

Re: Engine Tapping

Do you hear it at idle too? Big possibility it's your valve clearances. Adjustment is set at 0.010 inch for both intake and exhaust. Check rocker arm rollers too for excessive play. Check camshaft nose for wear.

Re: Delica Full Exhaust 2 1/2 inch all stainless.

Hi Golf Cart,

I've installed it last August. It sounds pretty quiet just like the original. The turbo just muffles it good I guess. :-)

Re: Thermostat install

One thing I noticed on the new T-stat was the stamp 82 degrees. Russek quotes 88 degrees for the 2.4l. Will this still work? 82 degrees is the right thermostat setting for the 4D56 engine. Use only an original mitsubishi thermostat to avoid any complications. It's about $30 for a new one. Just a wo...

Re: grease points on delica ????

There's 3 grease points on each wheel. One for the upper ball joints (nipple on top of upper arm with 90 degree fitting which you can loosen up to grease up without taking the tire off) and one on the tie rod ends and one on the lower ball joints ( you need to clean it up as it's hard to see on the ...

Re: help with squealing/grinding driveline?

Maybe you've checked this already but....check the front brake pads. They have a sensor that squeals irritably when the pads are low. And will be intermittent if the sensor just touched the rotors. It's a steady squeal irregardless of speed. Just a quick check before anything else.

Re: turbo timer is screaming

Just to add more information, Main reason we need to idle the engine for a few more minutes is basically to cool the turbine shaft down up to a temperature where the engine oil on the master assembly (main housing of the turbo) will not boil over and carbonize. The reason we have some bit of oil com...

Re: Are Delica's Crap?

Speed holes on the roof... Rust eating up my roof, hence lots of holes coming out, hence my delica gets lighter every time those rust falls on my head, hence speed inproves with less weight to carry around.

Re: Are Delica's Crap?

Hi Impalator, I'm glad all went well with your trip! I brought mine to LA after Christmas. Before the trip, I finally got the chance to change my Timing belts and radiator as well. The deli drove very well up to San Jose for a stop over. It took us about 20 hours though as we were just going about 1...
