    hola tengo una montero del 95 y me sucede que si la dejo sin gasolina ... cuando le hecho empieza a dar unos empujones al grado de apagarse ... me prende una bombilla en el panel SMS y ya luego cuando la quiero prender no prende de toque ... y me dijeron que es que se queman unos censores ... pues se los arregle pero al parecer volvieron a danarse. Mi guagua es un motor fuerte lo que le llaman doble palos... alguien me puede decir si es que me estan vendiendo censores equivocados porque muchas piezas las he tenido que comprar originales porque no sirven de reemplazo ... y si es algo mas que pueda tener que esten quemando esos censores (son dos).
    Gracias

Call the dealer or get a Haynes service manual (about $20US) for the vehicle.  DO NOT use what anyone on this or any other forum tells you as gospel, since many Mitsubishi engines are interference in design (read: when the belt or chain breaks, valves and/or pistons can be severly damaged).  
Belts have a mileage rating, and whil I haven't seen a strictly set number of years they will last,  they are synthetic rubber and will over a long period of time (say a decade) get brittle even if the car is only drive to the store on sundays.  Chains last much longer.  Belt intervals go from 50K miles to 100K miles in the states
When you do the belt,replace the tensioner and any rollers in the path as well as the water pump and possibly the crank and can front seals.   The parts are cheap compared to the labor.  A $20 timing roller or tensioner gone bad, can cause a couple thousand dollars damage when it cause the belt to break !
