remove the cable again. Then when you start it allow it to idle for 20 mins in park.

SOURCE: Mitsu Montero Sport '02 engine stalls but not when air cond is on.

hi there. the reason that the engine idles good when the air-con is engaged is that ussually all vehicles nowadays have a vacumm advance mechanism. this is triggered mainly by a electric solenoid valve which is also attached parallel to the source supplying power to compressor. a small vacumm hose with a diameter like a common pencil or ballpen case. its made of rubber and it runs from the alternator vacumm pump then to the solenoid valve and to the vacumm advancer unit attached to the injection pump throttle. this system raises the idle a tad higher.

if your montero runs completely normal and you experience no other problems with your engine except for your present problem, then the solution is just raising the idle a little higher. if your montero is equiped with a RPM guage on the dash, try adjusting the idle to around 800 rpms. it would be healthier for your car if the idle raises a bit when you engage the air-con because this would compensate for the added load on your engine.

hope this helps.

Oh my gawd, lol. Clean the screen and probably replace head gasket. Have head checked for flatness when removed because these Mitsubishi engines love to warp the heads when baked. Might as well pull the engine and work on it that way. Just go through and look for problems.



90% clogged? with what? I would think the filter would of caught the crap instead of the screen. Did you have the car at a mechanic lately, where they possibly could of done something to provoke that clog? . I have never heard one of them screens clogged up like that, EVER!

I have suction where i put oil in, when i remove the cap the car trys to stall what do I do? 2002 montero sport limited


You don't add oil with the car running

You broke the vacuum for the crankcase evacuation
(PCV System)

If you have idle problems then they have to be diagnosed

if your sure the cooling system is full than i wouldn't be surprised if you had a head gasket that has failed.

This would explain the water noise, and overheating.

With the engine cold remove the radiator cap, start the vehicle and let it idle. continue to monitor the coolant level in the radiator. top it off if it gets low. If you see a constant perculation of air bubbles coming out of the radiator than the head gasket is bad.

Sometimes you can also smell the radiator or the overflow. If it smells like exhaust than the head gasket is leaking.

1989 Mistubishi Montero with rebuilt engine won't start.


You'll lneed to test for 3 things:
Spark at the plug
Fuel, making it to the cyliinder
Compression, above the minimum spec.

Sometimes when engines have been rebuilt, they have really poor compression as they try to start for a few minutes of cranking. If you have good oil pressure, check compression, if low add a tablespoon of oil to each cylinder to build compression, as soon as it starts it will begin to seat and seal itself, as well as provide ample lubrication.

For Fuel and Spark, just normal diagnostics, based upon your description, I won't mention doublechecking now that it has been cranked a bit.

WD40 can be sprayed into the intake while cranking to get one lubed a bit and to start to idle, it will stall when you stop spraying, indicating a shortage of fuel.

good luck

Engine knocking on a 1995 mitsubishi montero


I use 6 to 6.5 litres in my 2800 (non-turbo) engine. Six litres is safe.

The loud noise: Careful please. I have had a big-end (the bottom of a connecting rod) come off while driving - Of course you loose one cyllinder's power and the noise is very bad. Also damages the crank shaft. If the noise does not go away by adjusting the oil level, have the engine checked immediately.
