My montero keeps overheating. I put a new

These newer engines and air lock when changing the thermostat. Somewhere in the thermostat housing you should see some kind of a plug. You need to do this while engine is cool. Take the cap off the radiator. Remove the plug. You should get air out of the system. Keep letting air out as you put more coolant if needed. When all the air is gone put the plug back in and top off the radiator and you should be good to go.

I would replace the thermostat as a first step. It sounds like the thermostat is not opening after warming up, keeping the coolant from circulating.

I need a circuit diagram of the ECS control box for my Mitsubishi GTO twin turbo as it has blown and is hard to identify where the tracks go. thanks, Andrew

If you mean schematics, they won't do you much good even if Mitsu would let them loose. This kind of detailed info isn't normally available to their own dealers. Besides that, there are likely to be proprietary ICs in it that you cannot buy. I think you are looking at a new one and it will be costly.

Overheating & brake issues when turbos dumping

there should be a resevoir for the brakes that prevents that from happening... it's either not hooked up or leaking/failed. as for the fan.... locate the relay for the fan in the fuse panel engine compartment near the battery and replace it... if that doesn't work you need to do some troubleshooting ... starting with the fans actually working... to power to the sockets for the fans
