    Have you drained out the extra oil? if so then the noise is most likely a connecting bearing noise.

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.

Knocking noise


Hi Janay, It would not take a good mechanic more than lifting the hood and listening to the engine to determine that the engine had knocked. By all means have someone else have a listen and a look and wait to hear the diagnosis they give. It's always a good idea to have a vehicle serviced on a regular basis. If you needed to add oil, to have the sound of the engine change, It sounds like you didn't bother? If the engine knocks more when you apply gas it seems to me that the connecting rod bearings and the small end bearing have both been damaged by the lack of lubricant (Engine oil). If you like the vehicle replace the engine, if not replace the vehicle. Regards John

MY 2000 Montero Sport has a loud knocking when i Start it UP ESPECIALLY WHEN ITS COLD IT GOES AWAY AFTER IT WARMS UP


Sounds like a hydralic lifter issue. These lifters operate the cylinder valves and run off oil pressure. When the engine is cold and the oil is thick worn lifters tend to rattle. When the engine warms up, everything expands and the lifters stop rattling. There is no easy cure for this except replacing the lifters. Sorry....

THE OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON AND WHEN I ADDED 1/2 QT NOW IT IS KNOCKING REALLY BAD AND SOUNDS LIKE THE ENGINE IS GOING TO BLOW UP


you have low oil pressure, so adding oil will not cure the light, if the engine is knocking u have damaged the engine bearings and it will need to be torn down and rebuilt.

2003 Mitsubishi Montero (full-size) check engine light is on, the engine sounds like it knocks as I accellerate and the shift diff. lights blink after driving 25 or 30 miles.


The engine is probably making a knocking sound because the oil needs to be changed or replaced. The check engine light is indicating that you will need regular dealership servicing soon, however you can still drive the vehicle but depending on mileage it will determine what services are required.

Engine noise at cold start-up.


Sounds like your oil pump inside the engine is not pumping oil fast enough when you start your vehicle its common problem for mitsubishi motors my car does the same thing.

good luck
