Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
I recently bought a used 2000 Mitsubishi Montero with 114,000 miles. For the first 2 or 3 weeks, everything was fine. Now, when I start it, if it's sat overnight, it seems to tap for the first minute, then goes away. If I start it after sitting only a few hours since driving, it doesn't do it. Someone said I should be using synthetic oil, and I don't know what oil was used at the change. The dealer did it after I bought it, and this is also the time the tapping seemed to start. Please, any help will be appreciated. Thank you!
Nothing to much to worry about.this is quite normal to many ingines. it may be gum build up, making a valve or piston ring stick. inexpensive first thing to try, run some engine restorer in the oil, one that say s it removes cabon and gum from engine, like wynns.follow instructions on can. you will see all the crud come out of the oil when you drain it.
