Question about Mitsubishi Montero
There could be several reasons for this.#1 the theromostat is stuck closed.(the quickest way to check this is to get the engine to operating tempature, if the upper radiator hos is cold your thermostat is not open and needs replacing.#2your cooling fans are not operating.( you should have 12 volts going to the cooling fans and you have fuses/relays that allow this. they are located in the junction box located under the hood to check the relay just have the engine at operating temp and then switch the relay( i use the a/c clutch relay to swap with) if the fan kicks on then you know it was the relay/fuse. If it doesn't it could be the fan is bad ot the temp sensor on the fan is defective.#3poor circulation ofcoolant.(the water pump has to circulate properly in order to to keep the engine cooled down. If all the other componants check out then i suspect that the water pump needs replacement. You will also have to power wash the radiator. Bugs,dirt and road grime restrict the flow of air over the coils and fins of the radiator thus not allowing the the heat to be dispersed properly. please rate the solution......thanks
