    Thanks.
    LiquiMoli all the way!

    Step-1 LiquiMoli Engine Flush Plus (Rs.600 - 700); Cleans your engine, (Once in Months!)
    Step-2 LiquiMoli Engine Oil 5W-30 or 10W-40 (4L Pack Rs. 4200)
    Step-3 LiquiMoli CeraTec (Rs. 2700 - 3000); Protects your engine from wear & tear (Once in Months!)

    I'm also fan of LiquiMoli fuel additives for your car's fuel system
    I've tried following so far;

    - LiquiMoli Valve Cleaner
    - LiquiMoli Injection Cleaner (improved engine response noticeably)
    - LiquiMoli Fuele System Treatment/Cleaner (improved idling)

    Please note that I'm no way associated with LiquiMoli; Just wanted to share my experience and recommendations here.

    Oil additives or cleaners are used only when deemed necessary; not more than twice/thrice in a whole year!
    This is my opinion; and i'm not professional; Consult LiquiMoli's reference materials/website for technical details.

    BTW, recommended mileage for LiquiMoli is 10K, more conscious?.... you can change it by 8000!

    Default Knowledge point: Solution to fault code P0420

    Dilemma:
    ======
    I happen to be a little cautious to keep my ek in topnotch condition, if you are not, you may discontinue reading right away, u might get bored.

    anyhow, Fault code P0420 comes from catalytic converter removal. in foreign you can have around 5000$ fine if you hv removed the catalaytic converter (cat).
    it may or maynot trigger SES(service engine soon) or CEL (Check Engine light). in mycase it had not triggered CEL, but i came to know it from ODB2 monitoring via ELM327 scantool. a must-have for any ek or even any jdm owner. easily available these days, even i saw some good fellows on pakwheel are also helping by selling it at a very nominal rate.

    scenario:
    ======
    after removal of my ek's cat a few weeks ago, i felt it was running rich, i was too busy to match logged data with previous, this weekend, when i compared it, i was shocked, the air to fuel ratio was way too rich than 14.7:1 (the ideal)
    i embarked on solving it myself.

    Research :
    ======
    there are three solutions to remove P0420 & return to normal air-fuel ratio after a cat removal:
    1. replace cat, either buy it new, or get it from scrapyard, if not, then import, anyway replace it.

    2. fool the bank1 O2 sensor by moving the heated O2 sensor out of the direct throughput of exhaust pipe about an inch.
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550625
    The sensor will not see cat removal by sensing less gasses and send all-ok report to ecu. b/t/w heated O2 sensor is the post-cat, in-exhaust oxygen sensor visible near bumper from underside, diagonally connecting to exhaust.
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550598
    the way to do it is to remove and put it in an extender and connect extender to the exhaust. i chose that method, and more on that in next paragraphs.

    3. fool the ecu by modding the sensor wiring / overriding the values sent by sensor / sending favorable values to the ecu. i.e fool the ecu to see normal values, while sensor sends faulty values and midway you change them by electronics.
    i have all the materials, tools and the data on that one too,
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550599
    and if choosing 2nd method does not give me best results, i will go for it. and if not, then onto the 1st one.

    Analysis:
    =====
    i sorted these solutions from cost effectiveness point of view, the 3rd one, i.e modding the wires was most cheaper, components cost PKR 10 from proper place, i ve bought them, and if you can spare an hour, u can do it easily.

    then i sorted these solutions from risk point of view. the 2nd one got my focus because moving the sensor a few inches away will not at all harm anything, and if that did not help, i can always remove the extender, or choose other methods.

    lastly i sorted these solutions from quality point of view, and the 1st one is the ultimate choice if these two did not help but acquiring the catalytic converter of ek, here in Pakistan, and that also in an affordable price, is heck of a game.
    b/t/w it costs around PKR 7k-10k at scrapyards, and that also very very bad conditioned. n ofcourse u need time and get your hands black to find goodones among the badones.

    Practical / hands-on / real world issues
    ========================

    initially i have chosen solution 2, the extender.
    the whole game is to restrict the exhaust gas flow in the sensor and hence less temperature, resulting the sensor send all-ok report.

    on a good sunny day (that's today morning) when i had a couple of hours to myself, i jacked ek up about 6 inches and whacked the sensor open, it was jammed ofcourse, a couple of squirts of rust-remover spray helps and torqueing it atlast opened it. (many a times during torqueing it, i thought to leave away the fuss, because i am not accustomed to under-car makenkian. but it suddenly opened. thanks to ALLAH, otherwise i was off.
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550629

    My half-**** research had told me that spark-plug-defoulers/adapters will easily fit as extenders.
    I had pre-obtained them also and merily got them drilled and upto my understanding pre-ready to be fitted, all done yesterday.
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550626

    after opening the sensor this morning, with a lot of effort, when i was just ready to fit the extender, i discovered that extender i had was way too smaller in dia than the sensor, i.e it was 14mm and sensor was 18mm. wtf. extenders wasted.
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550627
    Mitsubishi eK Wagon Fan Club! -1550628

    knowledge gained:
    the defoulers used in foreign are mostly in american cars where the sparkplug thread size is 18mm, while here and in jdm, ALL sparkplugs are 14mm threaded.

    Jugaard:
    =====
    now i had no choice but to find a way to obtain/make/lathe an extender. it took me more than 4 hours to figure out the exact bolt to fit in the home of sensor.

    all the knowledge gained today is just this line: "Heated O2 sensor thread size is M18x1.5", u need to tell the hardware storekeeper that you need "18x1.5 da 2 inch ala kaabla te nut".
    in return, on the cost of anywhere around 50-100PKR you will be handed over a fairly fat bolt and nut on it.

    i ve made it upto this part, the kabla thing. tomorrow i ll move on to the following part.

    you need to take it to a good machinist to:
    a) weld the nut on top of head of nut and
    b): then chuck in lathe, afterwards drilling a 12-14mm drill in it. [not all the way through, but leaving an mm or two,
    c):then drill a 3mm hole in nut at the end.
    lathe operation will cost u around 3-400 PKR

    ...... there u go, u ve got an extender. put sensor in it, and put the extender in the exhaust, volla u got your sensor fooled, the values returned to normal and hence the air-fuel mixture back on track. - the last line will be verified tomorrow, and IA i ll share it here that i got success or failure.

    a truly painful thing, u know, the cat-removal. after all cats are there to protect. when u mess with them, they mess with you.


    fun point
    =====
    in our part of the Asian region, we use char so bees for a corrupt entity. ... the fault code a car gets after cat-removal; for polluting environment; is P0420, the 420 code, mtlb gardi 420 ho gyi hay, isko set karein.

    What is maximum speed of Ek wagon??

    atf
    go for it, use good one.

    max speed:
    dont rev it above 4.5k rpm for long, its not built for that, and the 140 written on speedo is just for fun, it is a humble little commuter car, just to take you office with grace. nothing else. dont expect it to be a mustang. and on the speed question, if you are heavy footed and take it on highway around 100 or maybe to 120 sometimes, btw its yelling at that time, and the average you are getting then is below even 12km/ltr.

    ek stays happy upto 80, i would break your heart but the truth is that cc of the car is the right indicator for its optimal speed, i.e divide the cc by 10..... like if 1400 cc or higher divide 1400/10, u get 140, and that is the speed that car can be stable for long without trouble, ... if 1000 cc then 1000/10=100 km/hr; if 800 cc, then 800/10=80km/hr, ..... and in our case, u do the math.

    for preventing you from over-reving ur car, i.e to become lightfooted, install ELM327 and an android tab with torque installed on it. see the realtime rpm while you throttle, and it will warn you when you increase rpm from 3000.

    best of luck.

    When I travel to my village on my EK (once in a month or two), on GT Road, mostly my speed remains 90-to-110 Km/hr.

    YES, recommended is what asifzahidasif has explained, I just wanted to share my experience. But, you know, EK is such a decent and sober ride.... she will not complain if you try to keep her healthy!

    I even traveled from Lahore to Murree (from the Lawrence College road which is really hard to climb!) on same speed-range... without major stops in the way.

    Also, i really enjoyed my ride towards Peer-Sohawa / Monal on same trip. All the traveling was such a smooth and peaceful experience Alhamd-u-Lillah.

    I'm not sure about the problem but why don't you get it checked from Mitsubishi Momentum Motors, Lahore?

    If you've not changed transmission oil yet, after your purchase... and you've no idea how many miles it had already run.... you need to flush your transmission and fill up new transmission oil... ATF-SPIII.

    Any confusion or you need to discuss, please PM me your contact and we can discuss.
