There is a connector on the frame of the car where the door locks onto when closed. It has 2 big phillip screwdriver screws holding it on. Loosen them a little and maybe knock it in just a tiny bit to make the door close tighter to the vehicle. Hope that helps.

The most likely senario is that the water pump went bad which caused the overheating in the first place. Then after the engine shut down, the water pump seized up. When the engine was restarted, the timing belt started to smoke because the water pump, which runs off the timing belt, was not turning. Since the engine overheated to the point of shutting down, blown head gaskets are a possibility. Put a new timing belt and water pump on it and start it up. If it runs OK, you're good to go.

SOURCE: 1997 montero sport ran hot

I would say that the overheating was due to the thermostat, and that you've already done catastrophic damage. It's sounds like you've blown a head gasket, and possibly damaged a valve, rocker, lifter, push rod, or spun a crank bearing. If the rattle is coming from the top of the engine, it will be a valve, push rod, lifter, or rocker. If it's coming from the bottom, then it's a bearing. You should have a mechanic check it. When at idle take the radiator cap off, if you have any blow back, pressure, or bubbling, then you've blown a head gasket.

SOURCE: My 2004 montero sport has started to squeal when

Sounds like you may need a new power steering belt, or have the belt tightened. I would have the other belts inspected too.

2000 montero sport: There's a loud squealing noise coming from the engine. What could be wrong?

Squealing is most common with loose or worn belts, I would start by replacing the drive belt on the front of the motor and go from there, Its easier to troubleshoot a squealing motor if you know that the belt or belts are good.
