    Hyundai Power Steering Fluid PSF-3

    I've found with both my cars (Mitsu and Hyundai) there can be confusing specs for fluids (coolant, ATF, PS, etc.). I decided to just purchase them from the dealer's parts dept. It costs more than the stuff at AA or Autozone, but it's also stuff I only buy once every few years. Try finding a...

    Oil recommendations for 2005 Hyundai Elantra 71kmi

    My 2005 Elantra has 57k miles. I use Havoline 5w30 and Purolator 14459 filter. Been a good combo for me and my easy driving style. BTW, if you are still on the original timing belt, get it changed ASAP. You are on borrowed time.

    5W-20 or 5W-30 for my Elantra?

    I've run 5 UOA's on my 2005 Elantra, using everything from cheap $.99/qt oil to PP synthetic. No real diff except for the cost, but I am a conservative easy driver and use a 6mo/5k OCI or less. You could probably run Mazola in the BetaII engine if you changed it regularly (just kidding). As a...

    2004 Mitsu Diamante, havoline 5w30, 4.2k mi.

    Greetings, Been a couple of years, so thought I'd do another UOA on the wife's Diamante. Car is coming up on 8 years old, looks and runs fine, but has very low total miles (57455). I was particularly surprised with the low insolubles and silicon, as I have not changed the air filter in over 2...

    Havoline 5w30, 2005 Hyundai Elantra, 5008 mi.

    Below is the latest UOA on this vehicle. I skipped analysis the last 2 oil changes - hence the gap between 10/19/08 and now. I wanted to see how the Havoline 5w30 looked in this vehicle, since it was absolutely stellar in my Diamante. This report is not quite as good as the Diamante's 2 UOA's...

    Castrol GTX 5W20 - 25,056Miles - 07 Galant ES 2.4L

    I was simply referring to the OP's 4 cylinder, which is the UOA we are discussing. I have no first hand knowledge of Mitsu 4 bangers - only the 3.5 6 cylinder in my Diamante. I'm inferring that maybe Mitsubishi manufactures a pretty darn good engine, whether 4 or 6 cyl. Hope that clarifies...
