Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero
Someone put too much oil in the vehicle and now the engine is making a loud knocking sound coming from the bottom of the engine.
I think its either the oil bump, or the timing chain guide

I use 6 to 6.5 litres in my 2800 (non-turbo) engine. Six litres is safe.
The loud noise: Careful please. I have had a big-end (the bottom of a connecting rod) come off while driving - Of course you loose one cyllinder's power and the noise is very bad. Also damages the crank shaft. If the noise does not go away by adjusting the oil level, have the engine checked immediately.
