I definetly highly reccomend you to use Mitsubishi genuine Diamond SPIII Fluid, you'll feel your transmission more powerfull, and will help you to keep it just like new. I've tried with "Import multivehicle" from Castrol but a within 6 months the gears began to slip.

SOURCE: transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode

I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...

Well when you are in cold weather and after a high mileage. The Transmission solenoids fails when its cold and they get stuck for a moment and all i can say is that you warm your car for a while before you leave your house and thats good for the engine too and aslo will keep your car running for a long time. Good luck

SOURCE: where is the automatic transmission

Its in the transmission pan area part of the valve body,this sensor just does one thing report the temperature of the transmission,If you are stuck in 3rd gear this sensor has nothing to do with gear change, it is not responsible for shifting. If you pulled this from a generic scan tool it may be a logic code that has suspended a function code, go ahead and change it , there the filter and fluid will get changed and if you get a code it will be a function code

1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport speedometer isn't working. Replaced speed sensor and the output sensor. Also it's not shifting until driven for about 15 minutes and then it starts to shift normal.


I have the same shifting problems with 3 Toyotas.
I have not found a cure, but here is a suggestion.
Likely the slow shifting is sticking valves or pistons in the transmission.
Try to have the transmission serviced, by changing the fluid and the filter, if it has one.
I should recommend you go to a "highly spoken of " local transmission shop.
I have had really bad results with national brands, who are very determined to overhaul your transmission for a few thousand dollars.
Ask your local shop about the speedometer problem.
God bless your efforts.

I just replaced a leaking transmission seal on my 2001 Mitsubishi Montero sport put transmission back. Now truck will not move! Any suggestions?


if its an automatic, go through the gears a few times, while its running and you have the E brake on,, you probably have air in the lines, go from Park all the way down to Low, and back,, feeling for the selected gears to pop in place

Montero Sport, Automatic transmission fluid change


Ok, Mobil atf is more of a universal fluid, where Mitsubishi atf would be specifically formulated to be used in their products. Personally I would use the Mitsubishi as it is brand specific, but you can use either one with more than likely no problems.
