You don't add oil with the car running

You broke the vacuum for the crankcase evacuation
(PCV System)

If you have idle problems then they have to be diagnosed

SOURCE: Mitsu Montero Sport '02 engine stalls but not when air cond is on.

hi there. the reason that the engine idles good when the air-con is engaged is that ussually all vehicles nowadays have a vacumm advance mechanism. this is triggered mainly by a electric solenoid valve which is also attached parallel to the source supplying power to compressor. a small vacumm hose with a diameter like a common pencil or ballpen case. its made of rubber and it runs from the alternator vacumm pump then to the solenoid valve and to the vacumm advancer unit attached to the injection pump throttle. this system raises the idle a tad higher.

if your montero runs completely normal and you experience no other problems with your engine except for your present problem, then the solution is just raising the idle a little higher. if your montero is equiped with a RPM guage on the dash, try adjusting the idle to around 800 rpms. it would be healthier for your car if the idle raises a bit when you engage the air-con because this would compensate for the added load on your engine.

hope this helps.

How do you replace rod bearings 2002 montero sport 3.5

If they are in good condition, why replace them? Replace them with the same exact size you remove from them. You do not have to go 20 over or 30 over unless you have the engine or crankshaft turned at a shop where they remove a small amount of metal to make the surfaces nice. If that happens, you would need to compensate for that metal removal by installing an over sized bearing. But the shop would also be required to inform you on what size if that happened.

I use a prerun grease that is black. really doesn't matter as long as it is thick enough to stay until your ready to start the motor. Don't forget to prefill your new oil filter with new oil. This will decrease the time that oil fills the filter and save milliseconds that could cause damage to new parts. Also, go to the auto store and buy a bottle of zinc additive for the first breakin period of the engine bearings. Zinc is a very needed substance in the oil for new engines. It will help protect your engine during break in period. I use the lucas brand and pour it in with the new oil. I also use Castrol oil because it keeps engine parts clean and I have used it all my life, (my preference only) Stick with the 30wt oils because they seem to have the better additives needed, but use the zinc on first 500 miles. Take your time with what your doing, any mistake will mean disaster in a very short time. I know by experience it doesn't take more then 25mph to seize an engine. Clean your passages also. Anything stuck in a passage will crash a motor faster then you can shut it off. Watch you oil pressure and be sure it comes up quickly when first starting. All that hard work your doing, you better check yourself over and over for mistakes.

T came on and the engine stalled out. There was some bottom end noises and i had it towed home 300 miles. I took of oil pan and the oil suction screen was 90% clogged. At the time it overheated there was...

Oh my gawd, lol. Clean the screen and probably replace head gasket. Have head checked for flatness when removed because these Mitsubishi engines love to warp the heads when baked. Might as well pull the engine and work on it that way. Just go through and look for problems.

90% clogged? with what? I would think the filter would of caught the crap instead of the screen. Did you have the car at a mechanic lately, where they possibly could of done something to provoke that clog? . I have never heard one of them screens clogged up like that, EVER!
