My question is my 2002 Montero sport takes a while to shift does it mean I need a transmission


If transmission fluid level is up to par then you just might need tranny repair. And that is not cheap.

The service manual may help. You can get access to it free at your local library, but you have to go to the local branch to access it.

My 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport makes a high pitched humming noise when in reverse backing up. Does not make it when in gear driving.


If coming from transmission may not be a real issue. If coming from rear of car, likely a rear brake issue.

Hi, I have a 2002 RAV4 Sports model purchased in Cebu Philippines it has under 100,000 klms on the clock. It has an engine noise occasional daily a rattle like continues noise in the engine when it comes...


It sounds like you are dealing with a transmission issue. When metal heats up, it expands. This would be the reason as to why the noise eventually goes away. Your gearing is slipping and will eventually give out. I would take it to someone I trusted an have them drain the transmission of it's fluid and have them look for metal shavings. This usually shows up when the vehicle has been mis-treated or has been put under severely heavy loads and it being pulled uphill. Inexperienced drivers don't know how to use the vehicle gears correctly and this eats the sprockets within the transmission slap out.

Hope this helps.

2002 Montero Sport 4X2 jerks during and after shifting into 3rd or fourth gear. Particularly bad going uphill. Not so bad during hard acceleration. Have changed fuel filter, plugs, etc. Even changed center...


Check the 'U' joints in the drive line. Check the engine/transmission mounts for damage or looseness. The real enigma is trying to determine if this is an engine or a chassis problem. If the check engine light is on, doing a scan of the computer should show engine problems. If no light, concentrate on anything in the chassis for periodic binding. Good luck!

Could be a wheel bearing and/or a rear differential pinion bearing, which usually get worse when under load(going up hill). I would definitely start there.

My 2000 montero sport has little or no power when driving up hill


First thing I'd do is replace the fuel filter. If the car runs fine on level ground or downhill but struggles uphill, it's usually because a clogged filter isn't allowing enough fuel through to satisfy the engine's demand for enough to keep you at speed going uphill. Try that out - it's an inexpensive part and is usually the cause of your symptoms.
