This I believe is a SOHC (12 valve) engine. If in fact new valves are required I would purchase rebuilt heads and use yours for cores (each head will cost @ $250) I have done this job on my 1990 montero over a weekend. Just get the right parts, keep it clean, take your time and be patient.
I hope this may have helped,

Why is my check engine light on

Be sure you did blow a head gasket!!. Check for antifreeze loss, or white milky stuff in the oil. Look under the oil fill cap and radiator cap for white greyish goo. That will be a blown gasket from over heating.

To reset the engine light, there should be a toggle switch located somewhere under the dash, just switch it to the other side and your done. it is a very tiny switch, so you may need to look pretty hard for it.

I took my 97 Montero sport LS to the shop because I was told that my valve seals may be bad due to the smoke coming out of the tailpipe when i sit idle for a stop light or am in a drive thru. the shop says...

Because a head gasket are not valve seals. What color of smoke is coming out of your tail pipe? if it's burnt oil, have your valve seals replaced. Head gaskets seal the space between block and the cylinder head. I don't know why your head gasket was replaced when a shop told you your valve seals need to be replaced...makes no sense.

My mitsubishi montero sport over heated and now it doesn't start. What could have happened? it sounds like it's going tostart but it doesn't go all the way, it just makes a wierd noise.

To start check the oil and see if it is milky looking on the dipstick if so you have likely crack the head or blown a head gasket and possibly warped some valves witch would keep it from starting.

I have a 2003 montero sport leaking oil on the alternator. Is there any thing I could do to prevent this?

Find the oil leak and fix it
If coming from the timing case replace the gasket.
If from rocker remove it and replace the gasket
as if you have a oil leak then its fixable
1st check oil is it engine oil (black) or something else??????????

If you are sure that you have removed everything that is holding the cover to the head, you may need to use a bit of force to get it off as it may be glued in place. If your plugs go in through the cover, they must be removed .
