SOURCE: burning oil smell 03 montero sport

It's most likely the rear cam seals (o-rings) which is a pretty simply DIY, especially on the 3.5L model. The o-ring is only about $5.00 from the dealer (each, you need one for each side).

SOURCE: What does the A/T buttom

The A/T button is the power/economy mode which changes the shift points at which it up and downshifts. The A/T mode would be good for towing a trailor or a load inside the car up hill where you would want the engine to shift at higher RPMs so it would not be shifting so much back and forth everytime you go up and down a hill.

What could be the cause of oil burning and excessive smoking?


Sorry to tell you this, but it sounds like they may have put your rings in wrong or one broke right away. If you want to verify which cylinder it is, pull the spark plugs and see which one has oil on it. I suggest you take it back to the place that did overhaul and have done over.

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 have a 1999 mitsubishi montero sport with 3.0L engine smokes a lot and it does not goes away.


White smoke is antifreeze leak into cylinder.
Blue smoke is oil passing by rings or valve stems.
Black smoke could be gasoline problem or tune up problem.

Wish you luck on this repair.

I seem to be losing oil between oil changes, but none is on the ground where parked. The oil pressure light has not remained on after starting. What could be the problem?


this particular vehicle is known for this problem not knocking your ride but all mitsubishi.s are eventual oil burners the local tv station in my town owns three 01 monteros and all smoke alot when idling for lengthy periods after idling you press accelerator and a huge plume of smoke before coming to me with problem they were talked into replacing valve guides and valve stem seals @ over a thousand dollars in parts and labor did not help at all the most help comes from running 20w50 motor oil with one quart being subsituted with lucas oil stabilizer this helps there vehicle tremendously very little if any smoke now and this was embarassing for them they will be replacing vehicles soon with new ones and will not be purchasing a mitsubishi in fact there sales has slumped in this town to the point the dealership has now closed down and nearest is one hour away

2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport has smoke and condensation coming out of the back pipe-what would cause this?


It's trapped moisture in exhaust pipes, dont worry about it, unless car ovrheats and you have unexplained coolant loss and novissible leaks. this would be blown head gasket. Did you post this same inquiry more than once?

Why does the starter fuse on my 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport continues to burn out


I think this happened to my 03 montero sport. The problem was the cigarette lighter(it is on the same fuse as the ignition). It wasnt connected correctly and was shorting out the fuse. Since i dont smoke, I simply disconnected the cigarette lighter completely.
