Question about 1992 Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 1995 mitsubishi triton 4wd ute. During routine maintenance the fan belt was replaced and it was noticed that the v pulleys didn't line up correctly. Took the timing covers off and removed the harmonic balancer and it seems that the crank shaft has moved backwards. We are in outback remote qld australia and it difficult to get advise on this problem. I suspect that the crank thrust has colapsed but there has been no noises comming from the engine. I was wondering if you had come across this problem and would I be correct in the above assumption or can you shed any light on what it might be caused by. thanks Paul

Spark plug gap for 1997 mitsubishi trition 2.4 petrol ute

Spark plug gap does not effect the engine timing so it's not that critical. Thirty 5 (.035) should work just fine.
Otherwise consult a service manual fro your model or call a Mitsubishi service centre

We need to replace a fan belt that broke. Does

You can do it. If it takes longer than 10 minutes something is wrong. If its a V8 make sure the tensioner is good, Fan belts rarely just "break" so check all the pulleys.

The computer should relearn the settings after a couple of days, if it does not then you need to see if there was a plug or wire left of somewhere when the work was done. where was the damage done so I can give you a clue on how to fix it.

It is just a sensor. It will cause no damage to your car. It might annoy the heck out of you though.
