The evil side of this was to try and remove air pockets in the motor due to a design fault. If it fixed it they wouldn't need to replace the motor. Unfotunatley it hasn't really worked and they are replacing motors by the ship load.
The damage that can occur includes #3 piston melting, tubo, radiator, hoses tec all being damaged by the fault. Temp guages are going up slightly which is fobbed off by mitso as normal bur coolant is pooring out of overflow and ecu goes into limp mode.
It sounds to me to be as bad as the Nissan grenade issue but hasn't really been picked up on the internet yet
