Mitsubishi Outlander: Engine Lubrication

General Information

The lubrication method is a fully force-fed, full-flow filtration type.

ENGINE OILS

WARNING

Prolonged and repeated contact with mineral oil will result in the removal of natural fats from the skin, leading to dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains potentially harmful contaminants which may cause skin cancer. Adequate means of skin protection and washing facilities must be provided.

Recommended Precautions

The most effective precaution is to prevent, as far as practical, the risk of skin contact with mineral oils i.e.

use enclosed systems for handling used engine oil and degrease components, where practical, before handling them.

Other precautions:

ENGINE OIL

CAUTION

Never use nondetergent or straight mineral oil.

Use only engine oils displaying the ILSAC certification symbol ("Starburst" symbol) on the container.

ENGINE OIL CHECK

1. Pull out the engine oil dipstick, clean off the engine oil on the engine oil dipstick, and then reinsert the engine oil dipstick.

2. Pull out the engine oil dipstick, and check the engine oil level is within the marks on one side of the engine oil dipstick (engine cover side.)

NOTE:

3. Check that the engine oil is not excessively dirty, that there is no coolant or gasoline mixed in, and that it is sufficiently thick and slippery.

ENGINE OIL REPLACEMENT

1. Start the engine and allow it to warm up until the temperature of the coolant reaches 80 − 90ºC (176 − 194ºF).

WARNING

Use care as oil could be hot.

2. Remove the engine oil filler cap.

3. Remove the drain plug to drain oil.

4. Install a new drain plug gasket so that it faces in the direction shown in the illustration, and then tighten the drain plug to the specified torque.

Tightening torque: 39 +- 5 N*m (29 +- 3 ft-lb)

5. Refill the specified quantity of engine oil <2.4L ENGINE>.

Specified Engine Oil: Engine oils displaying the ILSAC certification symbol ("Starburst" symbol) or conforming to the API classification SM

Total quantity (Includes volume inside engine oil filter): 4.6 dm3 (4.82 quarts)

6. Refill the specified quantity of engine oil <3.0L ENGINE>.

Specified Engine Oil: Engine oils displaying the ILSAC certification symbol ("Starburst" symbol) or conforming to the API classification SM

Total quantity (Includes volume inside engine oil filter): 4.3 dm3 (4.52 quarts)

Mitsubishi Outlander. Engine Lubrication

NOTE: SAE 5W-20 engine oil is strongly recommended for optimum fuel economy and cold starting.

7. Install the engine oil filler cap.

8. Let the engine run for a few minutes.

9. Stop the engine, and then check the oil level using the oil dipstick after a few minutes.

ENGINE OIL FILTER REPLACEMENT

Required Special Tools:

1. Start the engine and allow it to warm up until the temperature of the coolant reaches 80 − 90ºC (176 − 194ºF)

WARNING

Use care as oil could be hot.

2. Remove the engine oil filler cap.

3. Remove the drain plug to drain oil.

CAUTION

Cover the starter assembly with a rag to prevent the engine oil from adhering to the starter assembly, otherwise the starter assembly may be damaged <3.0L ENGINE>.

4. Use the respective tool in the following table to remove the engine oil filter.

5. Clean the filter bracket side mounting surface and ensure the old O-ring has been removed.

6. Apply a small amount of engine oil to the O-ring of the new oil filter.

Mitsubishi Outlander. Engine Lubrication

CAUTION

Thoroughly remove the rag that was covering the starter because the inside of the engine compartment gets very hot <3.0L ENGINE>.

7. Screw on the oil filter by hand until it touches the surface of the flange and then tighten it with an oil filter wrench.

8. Install the drain plug and refill engine oil.

9. Rev the engine a few times, and check to be sure that no engine oil leaks at the oil filter.

OIL FILTER STUD REPLACEMENT <3.0L ENGINE>

Required Special Tool:

1. Remove the engine oil filter.

2. Remove the oil filter stud using the screw extractor (Recommended tool: MB992684), or equivalent.

NOTE: This recommended tool is a component of the screw extractor set (MB992678).

3. Using special tool MB992676, install the new oil filter stud and tighten it to the specified torque.

Tightening torque: 49 +- 5 N*m (36 +- 3 in-lb)

4. Install the engine oil filter.

ENGINE OIL PRESSURE CHECK

CAUTION

Since sealant is applied to the thread of the engine oil pressure switch, take care not to damage the engine oil pressure switch when removing it.

2. Remove the engine oil pressure switch. <2.4L> <3.0L>

3. Install the engine oil pressure gauge.

NOTE: Use a 1/8 pipe thread adapter.

4. Run the engine to warm it.

5. After the engine has been warmed up, check that engine oil pressure is within the standard value.

Standard value:
At idle: 29 kPa (4.2 psi) or more
At 3,500 r/min: 294 − 686 kPa (43 − 100 psi)

6. Remove the engine oil pressure gauge.

7. Install the engine oil pressure switch.
