You car has noisy lifters......"the tapping sound"........noisy lifters can sometimes be fixed by using aftermarket products like "RISLONE" or other simillar to it...

how old were the sparkplugs? maybe they were too old and the engine was fooling them...causing loss of power and knocking.......and **** to build on the rods...

is there water in the oil?.....sometimes when the head gasket has blown....there will be water "coolant" in the oil......

"have you checked the compression in all four cylinders"?
if you havent you should.......as engines get older.....they loose compression due to their owners...not changing the oil when they should....or also due to dirt getting inside the engine........thus causing the engine to make friction by using these particles in oil and then scratching the cylinder walls leading to oil comsumption........

the oil comsumption...........i think unless you wanna overhaul your 4 cylinder......you try using some aftermarket products......"only if you feel desperate"........you can always try using a higher SAE oil as these heavier oils will reduce oil comsumption......

i would say 10w30...if you are using 5w30..as i wouldnt try 10w40...in such a small engine......

ask a local mechanic...he can tell you what SAE of oil you should use...........i really hope this helps...good luck !

Just because there is oil on the plugs doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem with the head.

it could be rings. are sticking not sealing properly
the noise your hearing is probably sticky lifters that arnt moving freely

the first thing i would try is put a oil detergent in and a good oil filter (not the cheapest 1) im sure this will take care of at least 1 of your problems

When I bought my fairly used Montero 2000 from the dealer on August 2011 there was a hug white smoke coming out from the tail pipe whenever its started. The smoke gradualy reduced with time, but the engine...


"Hug" white smoke sounds bad. The dealer sold you a lemon. Burning oil is blue/black meaning bad pistons rings or valves. White smoke could be coolant leaking into the cylinders through a cracked head and/or head gasket.
Check you local laws concerning your warranty for used cars and try to return it to the dealer/scammer.

My montero sport is burning oil what the cause.?


Could be worn piston rings letting oil into the top of cylinder from below, or worn valve stem seals or valve guides letting oil in from above.. A shop could do a compression test or a leak-down test and give you a good idea of the engine's health. Low compression on any of the cylinders means the rings or valves are not sealing well, and could let oil in to burn. Either of the tests could point to the problem, but a leak-down test is considered the more accurate test
How much is burning? If you are burning more than a quart every thousand miles, it is a problem that needs attention. Most car makers say a quart every 3 thousand miles is not a problem and may be considered normal, although owners may dispute that as they often do. Some engines just seem to lose no oil between oil changes, but most do use or lose a little oil between changes, it is normal. If your oil consumption is on the high end, have the test done. If your rings are good, a cylinder head job (for the valve work) is much less expensive than an engine rebuild.

My mitsubishi montero sport over heated and now it doesn't start. What could have happened? it sounds like it's going tostart but it doesn't go all the way, it just makes a wierd noise.


To start check the oil and see if it is milky looking on the dipstick if so you have likely crack the head or blown a head gasket and possibly warped some valves witch would keep it from starting.

Ring your nearest mitsubishi dealer or ask the supplier of the head gasket you probably just bought ! It should also be on any gasket set supplied by any reputable supplier of replacement gasket/bolts etc.

1998 montero sport is blowing out heavy white smoke, there is oil in the vehicle


If your engine is producing white smoke this is anti-freeze making its way in to the cylinders. I highly recommend NOT running it until corrected. Have a compression check run to find where problem is and correct. Hopefully just blown head gasket, possible though cracked, warped head. If you feel a confident mechanic you can do this on your own, otherwise you'll need to take it to a shop for repais : (

Sorry, wish I had better news,

Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003 3.0 needs head gaskets and valves replaced. How many of each are needed? And what type of valves are needed?


This I believe is a SOHC (12 valve) engine. If in fact new valves are required I would purchase rebuilt heads and use yours for cores (each head will cost @ $250) I have done this job on my 1990 montero over a weekend. Just get the right parts, keep it clean, take your time and be patient.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
