Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Montero
While travelling on the open road in overdrive at approx 100km and approx 2500rpm the rev counter will 'flare' up to almost 3000rpm. It stays at the higher rev's for anywhere between 5 -15 sec and then drops back to normal rev's again. It does this inconsistantly but is doing it more frequently now. Initially it would only do this on the odd occasion but now it does it everytime we take the vehicle out. On the last trip it would not up change when we needed to, i.e. when ovetaking or on a steep hill. I think it may be the lock up clutch. What are your thoughts?
First inpect the oil condition, pull the trans dipstick and see the oil colour and smell it as well. f it smells burning then you know there is quite a bit of wear and tear inside.
Second shot is to perform a transmission flush and replacing the filter inside the transmission as well.
If all these are unsuccessful then you are looking at a full rebuild of the transmission.
