Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport

Open Question

I'm doing a tune up on my 2002 mitsubishi montero sport 3.0l ls. I took apart the upper intake manifold and throttle body to get to the 2,4,6 cylinders. i have an all-data account but the information they provided was not what i'm looking for. i labeled all of the bolts for each section of the manifold as the are 3 pieces, but i cannot find a bolt sequence to torque the bolts, or even which bolts go where anymore. all- data is just giving me a chicken scratch picture that i cant make out. i guess what im really looking for a top view of the two manifolds and which bolts go where if that info is available. thank you

SOURCE: I need to change my spark plugs on a 04'

If you'll need to remove the intake (or plenum) from the engine there are @ 8-10 No. 12 nuts and or bolts which hold this in place. There are also 1-2 bracket (check by the firewall) you'll need to unbolt too. Be certain to replace the gasket that is found between the plenum and the intake and do not over tighten these nut/bolts only 20ft pounds or so. If you do remove this you'll have to remove the air inlet, throttle cables and remove hoses from the throttle body, some of which carry coolant to properlly preheat the air before enteringthe engine. I have worked on several early 89-93 Monteros without having to remove this for plugs; perhaps different under the hood of the sport.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: Torque and sequence to Intake Manifold for 3.3L Nissan Xterra 2000

Hi El Faraon,
I believe that you're dealing with 12 mm bolts and nuts....THESE ARE NOT THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE, but I believe that if you use them you'll be close....Tighten in three stages up to 22nm....choose the bolts from the centre of the manifold and circle outwards until you reach the last one.....It may be a good idea to draw an overhead or plan view of the unit, marking out the bolt positions.....Start at the centre and mark the sequence and follow that....What is important is starting at the centre, so that nothing becomes warped....

Hope this helps,

Regards, Johngee10

SOURCE: looking for torque specs and sequence of both

Lower intake bolts 11 ft. lbs start in the center of the intake and work your way out cross from side to side.Tighten the upper intake bolts with the same procedure with 89 inch pds.Be sure to apply threadlocker to the lower intake bolt threads.

My 1996 Mitsubishi Montero will start but not idle at all once driven. My father-in-law suggests adding some Sea-foam to the vacuum hose and the gas tank to help. My question is; where do I find the...


Back in the good old days, engines had various vac hoses that controlled other devices including the PCV valve. The idea was to use one of the vac hoses to pull SeaFoam directly into the intake and help clean deposits off the intake valves.
Today's engines have very few such hoses.
And in your case, the problem is probably dirty injectors or the throttle body itself.
So I would put the seafoam in the gas tank, but also check the throttle body to see if it is gummed up. You can use spray carb cleaner if it needs to be cleaned.

I have a 1999 Montero with only 1 key. It will not start the car now and the nearest dealer is 4 hrs away. Is there a way to reset the key? Thanks.


get rid of it! i have owned a 2001 montero sport since brand new. when they run good they run good! but any kind of repairs are way too expensive! $600 for a tune up is crazy. i did a tune up on my chrysler 3.5 engine in about a half hour and cost about $40 in parts. they do not offer repair books by chilton or haynes because they want you to go to mitsubishi for repairs. my friend who owns a repair shop DOES NOT work on mitsubishi's if he can help it! to have to take off the intake and throttle body to replace spark plugs is crazy. had i known i would NEVER have bought a montero sport! the maintenance cost are WAY TOO HIGH!!!!

The montero runs fine but will not idle if you keep it accerated it wont die other wise it will


I had the same problem with mine, I just adjusted the idle speed by tightening the throttle cable at the throttle body located on the top of the engine at the intake manifold. It's ran fine since, about 3 years now and the problem has not repeated itself, hope this helps.

I did this two months ago. The upper intake and all attached must come off to get to them. It took me 4.5 hrs with hand tools and the factory service manual.

How do I change spark plugs on a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero, and how long should they last? Thanks.


You have to remove the upper intake manifold to get at the wires and plugs. Mitsubishi recommends 60,000 miles for spark plug replacement, if you look in your owners manual they also want you to replacet the spark plug wires also. Timing belt also at 60K
