Evo 6 tme lhd – work log

Hi guys,

New in the world of Mitsubishis, I bought an Evo 6 TME in red, was my dream car when it came out, finally managed to buy one. It is 100% standard, and I will keep it this way!

It needs a good service tho, so I am in the hunt for good service parts (filters, oil, spark plugs, timing belt, etc.), to make her good for next spring!





Cheers.

Get her serviced by a Evo specialist mate as if you ever sale you will require service stamp as proof of service or lads won't be interested

Thanks guys! I live in central Europe so no big Evo specialist there. I am a mechanic myself so I intend on doing all the work. I will not sell the car so not having the "right stamp" should not make a difference. Plus I take care of my cars very well, probably even more than people making money out of servicing these cars, as I am not rushed by time and a boss

It is a LHD RS-2 as they call it. I am away from home at the moment so I will put pictures in the first message this weekend when I come back!

Again it is hard to get parts here for the car, so any websites (in the UK or else) is welcome! I guess there are lots of bad names in the business, I just don't want to cross their road!

Ross Sport will sort you OEM parts no problem;

Welcome and congrats. Will be a very rare sight in Europe, super rare in LHD in any event and don't forget, Tommi's car was LHD too! Anyone know how many LHD TME's they made? Can't be a big figure.

Thank you guys. I have updated the first post with a picture of the car (sorry for the quality, my phone is pretty bad). The car is in very good condition, never been damaged, never seen salty road, it is rust free, so that's good!

On the other hand, there are few issues:

- hydraulic lifters tapping noise (cold and hot, intermittent problem but almost permanent)
- PAS noise (level of fluid is at minimum at the moment so probably filling to the top will solve that issue, permanent issue)
- front knocking noise when going over uneven surfaces (I suspect something related to the antiroll bar)
- bit of play in the rear right wheel (probably a bearing)
- engine off but ignition on, I hear the throttle body moving very fast (intermittent problem)

I will investigate these issues as soon as possible, in the meantime I am open to advice or maybe these are common to this car, I don't know?

I will take more pictures when I get the chance.
