To check the clutch fluid

To check the clutch fluid The clutch fluid in the master cylinder should be checked when performing other underhood services. In addition, the system should be checked for leakage at the same time.

Check to make certain that the clutch fluid level is always between the “MAX” and “MIN” level markings on the fluid reservoir and refill the fluid, if necessary.

A rapid fluid loss indicates a leak in the clutch system which should be inspected by your authorized MITSUBISHI dealer and repaired immediately.

To replace the fluid

Recommended brake fluid conforming to DOT 3 or DOT 4 should be used.

The reservoir cap must be fully tightened to avoid contamination from foreign matter or moisture.

DO NOT ALLOW PETROLEUM-BASED FLUID TO CONTACT, MIX WITH, OR OTHERWISE CONTAMINATE THE BRAKE FLUID. SEAL DAMAGE WILL RESULT.

WARNING

Take care in handling brake fluid as it is harmful to the eyes and may also cause damage to painted surfaces. When the fluid is spilt, wipe it up immediately.

Diesel–powered vehicle

The reservoir for the clutch fluid also serves as the reservoir for the brake fluid. Refer to the paragraph on the “Brake fluid”.
