Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4WD
Most likely you have a misfire, I'd be surprised if it didnt turn on the check engine light. It may be a coil or sparkplg problem.
Do this this. With your foot on the brake hard and the ebrake on put the car in gear and rev the car up a bit. What your doing is putting a load on the engine to see if it shutters. If it does it points to a coil issue usually or it just may be time plugs and wires

I have a 2001 Montero Sport with 325,000 miles on it. I had recently changed the plugs and wire set. A few months later my vehicle would shutter going uphill at 55 MPH. The engine light would come on. I checked the error code and it indicated the number 6 cylinder had misfired. I suspected the injectors but a bad injector would create the same problem at ,any speed. Once again I pulled the exhaust manifold apart and found my spark plugs where in a pool of oil. I changed the valve cover gasket and got a top grade set of plugs and wires. Now my Montero Sport rips uphill without any problems. Be careful when buying replacement parts as there is is a dramatic difference in quality. A cheap wire set and oil probly caused the spark plug to ground out before the electricity could reach the botom of the plug.
