Air in the system try to purge air out there is a screw for it or let run for 15 to 20 min with radiator Cap off fill as needed ...if you have a air pocket jack up front of car so the radiator is highest point can let run heat will push air out

    Hey Flong 850..did you ever found out what to do for this trouble. I am told it is the ECU Cluster and would cost $675 by mitsubishi to have it fix. Would like to have a external temp gauge mounted but my mechanic can't find a way to do this. Any ideals?

Temp guage in red' dummie light on engine not hot


Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

2002 Montero limited overheats can't find problem.


Sounds like the thermastat is stuck closed. The water in the engine would get very hot while the radiator remains cool.Don't drive the car this way as serious engine damage will occur.

Have you repaired the temp gauge issue


I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Limited. The other day the temperature gauge went from normal temp to Max HOT. The radiator is still cool enough to touch, it is not boiling over, and there is still coolant in the resivour. The gauge would go back down to normal in a few minutes, but now it immediately climbs to Max Hot within 1-2 minutes of turning the car on.

Please can you help why only after about a mile the engine is red hot but temp gauge is only showing middle. is this normal. YEAR 2001 WITH SERVICE HISTORY ONLY HAD SIX MONTH.


When you say "red hot" do you mean actually glowing? If so, you'd have serious trouble. If you mean only hot to the touch, that's normal - these engines run pretty warm. And yes, the gauge in the center is normal - the OEM temp gauge is a dummy gauge, only meant to show you that it's either cold, overheated, or mainly OK. Use your oil temp gauge as your main indicator - at least it's graded numerically and you can actually see the oil temp.
