Mitsubishi Outlander: Tightening Torque, Lubrication and Maintenance

Mitsubishi Outlander Service Manual / General / Tightening Torque, Lubrication and Maintenance

Tightening Torque

Each torque value in the table is a standard value for tightening under the following conditions.

1. Bolts, nuts and washers are all made of steel and plated with zinc.

2. The threads and bearing surface of bolts and nuts are all in dry condition.

The values in the table are not applicable:

  1. If toothed washers are inserted.
  2. If plastic parts are fastened.
  3. If bolts are tightened to plastic or die-cast inserted nuts.
  4. If self-tapping screws or self-locking nuts are used.

Lubrication and Maintenance

Maintenance and lubrication service recommendations have been compiled to provide maximum protection for the vehicle owner's investment against all reasonable types of driving conditions. Since these conditions vary with the individual vehicle owner's driving habits, the area in which the vehicle is operated and the type of driving to which the vehicle is subjected, it is necessary to prescribe lubrication and maintenance service on a time frequency as well as mileage interval basis.

Oils, lubricants and greases are classified and graded according to standards recommended by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI).

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES

Information for service maintenance is provided in the "SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE TABLE". Three schedules are provided; one for "Required Maintenance" one for "General Maintenance" and one for "Severe Usage Service". The item numbers in "SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE TABLE" correspond to the section numbers in "MAINTENANCE SERVICE".

SEVERE SERVICE

Vehicles operating under severe service conditions will require more frequent service.

Component service information is included for vehicles operating under one or more of the following conditions:

1. Trailer towing or police, taxi or commercial type operation.

2. Operation of Vehicle

  1. Short-trip operation at freezing temperature (engine not thoroughly warmed up)
  2. More than 50% operation in heavy city traffic during hot weather above 32ºC (90ºF)
  3. Extensive idling
  4. Driving in sandy areas
  5. Driving in salty areas
  6. Driving in dusty conditions
  7. Driving off-road

ENGINE OIL

CAUTION

Test results submitted to EPA have shown that laboratory animals develop skin cancer after prolonged contact with used engine oil. Accordingly, the potential exists for humans to develop a number of skin disorders, including cancer, from such exposure to used engine oil. Therefore, when changing engine oil, be careful not to touch it as much as possible. Protective clothing and gloves, that cannot be penetrated by oil, should be worn. The skin should be thoroughly washed with soap and water, or use waterless hand cleaner, to remove any used engine oil. Do not use gasoline, thinners, or solvents.

Either of the following engine oils should be used: Engine oils displaying ILSAC certification symbol or conforming to the API classification SL, SL/CF.

For further details, refer to "RECOMMENDED LUBRICANTS AND LUBRICANT CAPACITIES TABLE - LUBRICANT SELECTION".

LUBRICANTS AND GREASES

Semi-solid lubricants bear the NLGI designation and are further classified as grades 0, 1, 2, 3, etc.

Whenever "Chassis Lubricant" is specified, Multipurpose Grease, NLGI grade Number 2, should be used.

FUEL USAGE STATEMENT

CAUTION

Using leaded gasoline in this car will damage the catalytic converters and heated oxygen sensors, and affect the warranty coverage validity.

This vehicle must use unleaded gasoline only.

This vehicle has a fuel filler tube which is especially designed to accept only the smaller-diameter unleaded gasoline dispensing nozzle.

The 2.4L model is designed to operate on unleaded gasoline having a minimum octane rating of 87 [(MON + RON)/2], or 91 RON.

NOTE:

GASOLINE CONTAINING ALCOHOL

Some gasoline sold at service stations contain alcohol although they may not be so identified.

Using fuels containing alcohol is not recommended unless the nature of the blend can be determined as being satisfactory.

Gasohol: A mixture of 10% ethanol (grain alcohol) and 90% unleaded gasoline may be used in your vehicle. If driveability problems are experienced as a result of using gasohol, it is recommended that the vehicle be operated on gasoline.

Methanol: Do not use gasoline containing methanol (wood alcohol). Using this type of alcohol can result in vehicle performance deterioration and damage critical parts in the fuel system components. Fuel system damage and performance problems resulting from the use of gasoline containing methanol may not be covered by the new vehicle warranty.

GASOLINE CONTAINING METHYL TERTIARY BUTYL ETHER (MTBE)

Unleaded gasoline containing 15% or less MTBE may be used in your vehicle. (Fuel containing MTBE over 15% in volume may cause reduced engine performance and produce vapor lock or hard starting.

MATERIALS ADDED TO FUEL

Indiscriminate use of fuel system cleaning agents should be avoided. Many of these materials intended for gum and varnish removal may contain highly active solvents or similar ingredients that can be harmful to gasket and diaphragm materials used in fuel system component parts.

LUBRICANT SELECTION

ENGINE OIL

CAUTION Never use nondetergent or straight mineral oil.

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

Mitsubishi Outlander. Recommended Lubricants and Lubricant Capacities Table

If these oils are not available, an API classification SM can be used.
