Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer


My 2002 3.5 oil lite came on and then stop running. The engine overheated, made some small bottom end noises and so I stop driving. Took off oil pan and oil suction screen was 90% clogged. The clog was the result of pep boys pouring radiator sealer in oil fill tube. Although pep boys changed the oil four times my Montero Sport had the problems mentioned above six months later. I have taken the top manifoilds and other parts in order to tune up engine. I have also clean suction screen. Should I put the top end back together and see if the clean suction of oil has solved the problem or go ahead and tear into the short block to see if there was any other damage?

You should check the big end and crank main bearings for damage.

I believe it means that your transmission fluid is either getting too hot, or there's not enough fluid

2001 montero sport xls sport horn on my alarm how do i stop it i pulled the fuse but it is still goint

You need to determine if it's the horn or the alarm. My Montero (not Sport) had 3 horns. All 3 of which go off w/ the Alarm, but only one is connected to the horn on the steering wheel. I could not make mine go off w/o pulling the relay under the hood.

My spring was bad in the steering wheel. I was able to bypass the wire using instructions that I actually found on a Mitsubishi Forum. Link below:

The oil warning lite came on and now there is knocking in the engine what should I do first?

You ran it out of oil! Dont Drive it or run it! Get at Least 2 qts of oil and put it in the engine. See if the knocking goes away when you start it. IF IT DOES NOT, YOU NEED A COMPLETE ENGINE OVERHAUL or a new engine

You don't add oil with the car running

You broke the vacuum for the crankcase evacuation

I have a 98 mitsubishi montero sport that has a small oil leak. i need to know how to fix it

It all depends where it is leaking. You may have a bad seal. If so, you will have to take off the block to get to your valves. Like I said, it just depends where the oil comes from. Make sure all your bolts are tight. They loose up after time.
