Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
When i shift to drive,sometimes engage.then few seconds it will disengage same like you put your gear into nuetral.
First I suggest to check trans fluid level, if the quality and level is
right, try a maintennace job before... could be a problem with the
torque converter or valve body solenoids.
Hope this helps.

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

the problem is caused by the "end clutch" this is the 4th gear or over drive gear of the auto trans, it is mounted in an alloy cover on the chassis rail side of the trans, will requre removal of this cover and new clutch packs fitted, until then just drive the car with OD off, any trans shop can replace this for ya, fairly easy,

I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...
The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???
I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
