Friend, I wanna recommend to you Mitsubishi fully synthetic oil. It's cheaper than Ravenol. I have tried all branded oils, but no one can get better than MMO. You can try it and see the result. I am a mechanic; all my customers say it's very smooth. When starting, customers really don't know Mitsubishi have their own oil, and they think is it genuine oil. 100% genuine.

Friends, I've owned the Waja 1.8 standard with the f4p engine DPO gearbox for 13 years now. I just stick with Elf-Renaultmatic D3syn (rm55-per-liter nowdays, need 3.3 liters) for the AT and keep stock for EO when TESCO have a promotion like Shell, Castrol or Total. Most of them are 5 liter per-pack, 100% original European oil). Value for $ I think Shell Semi (rm90), and the best oil for me is Total Quartz INEO mc3 (rm130). The Waja needs almost 5 liters and I D.I.Y it.

Where can you buy the ELF Renaultmatic D3 syn oil? I've been searching high and low for it, but failed to find any. I am in need to change the gear oil for my Waja 1.8. Now my car won't start and the gear light on the dashboard won't light up. What do I have to change?

My Waja 1.8 ATF ELF Renaultmatic is supplied and changed by RENAU TECH AUTO SERVICES S/B at USJ 1.

Hahaha... I've been using my Waja 1.6 ever since they launched this model in the year 2000. This baby has already been with me for 17 years. I have other cars at home, but I'm just simply reluctant to sell this car, even though there are so many problems such as door handles break most of the time, power window brackets broke into pieces, and recently I'm facing a similar problem of high RPM when I start the engine, but my engine check light is on permanently after 30 seconds - 1 minute, and because I have no time for this, I've left the car at home for more than 6 months... Can anyone help?

I've got this problem with my Waja 1.8 Renault engine 2003 model.

I will try to describe the Auto Gear problem. Just started a week ago now, the gear indicator light changes from D and is jumping to others like D2/P/N/R during driving. When that happens, the gear will not change... the car still can move.

Please, I need advice and help. Where is the best shop to service or solve this issue.

I hear the TCU or sensor not working. Can anyone help?

Any suggestion or change the gear box?

Your multifunction gearbox switch... don't worry, rm300-rm400 last time I changed it.
