Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer

Changed water pump & timing belt last night. Car ran fine at idle and test drive. Wife went on errands this morning and after the last stop. Car would not re-start. Could the timing belt skip a tooth rendering the engine to not re-start? The engine turns over smoothly about three revolutions, then acts rough, then smooth again. The "check engine" light is not illuminated but, I did do a diagnostic (OBD II) test with no errors to report. I also checked the fuses in the cockpit and engine bay all look good. Any help would be most appreciated.

Just a thought that the belt could slip if the tensioner did not locate properly. Seems too coincidental that it is not related to the timing belt.

SOURCE: Idling Problems

Besides the throttle positioning sensor, the crankshaft sensor, the O2 sensor, and a bad or clogged EGR valve will cause this problem. These sensors can have an intermittent problem without producing a code or causing the check engine light to come on. Persona;ly, I would start with the EGR valve.

SOURCE: Rough idle

I took mine in to change the plugs and they said there are four O2 sensors in the fuel mixture system and two were bad. I didn't replace them since they were a little pricey ($500 to replace both) and I have 103,000 on the car. Has very similar roughness and occasional oscillations, but no stalling. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Will not run smoothly when engine warm unless MAF

I would guess you pretty well havew it figured out. Change the MAF sensor.

have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump-regulator pressure and filter performance. You state that the filter was last changed in 2007 so it is well past it's blocked up date .. Run fault codes . replace the canister . Have a compression test done as the engine is getting long in the tooth and may need refreshing .. Check that the cat converter is still operational as they will block up the exhaust system and cause poor performance

You can't do any testing, until you have a battery
that will take and hold a charge

Then you move on to testing the Alternator,then
Fuel Pressure & continue on with other testing

Before you waste time and money you may want to have someone look at the vehicle because the belt may look fine but may have jumped a tooth and now you may have major engine problems.

sounds like you blew a head gasket or cracked the head it will be expensive to repair. anytime you have white smoke coming out the exhaust you have water in the conbustion chamber.
