Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport

2 Answers

I just bought a 1999 mitsubishi sport limited suv, i bought it because of how clean the motor was and it ran very well. It didn't blow out any blue smoke out the tail pipe when I first started it and even took it for a drive, checked the dip stick for oil to before i bought it and it was good, but when i was driving it home i went to pass a person and i looked in my rear view mirror and there was a whole lot of blue happening, so i gunned it again but it didn' t do it, so i just thought oh well it was just nothing, i get it home and my oil light comes on for 2 seconds and i hear a knocking noise, so i shut it off right away and checked the oil and it barely showed on the dip stick, had to add 4 quarts. now that is baffeling me because it wasn't smoking before when i took it for a test drive and hasn't a speck of oil on the engine it looks like new, what could be wrong.

Well if you checked the oil when its hot that would maybe explain the no oil. Did you try to drain the motor first then add new oil. make sure you didnt over fill the engine with oil as this will blow the seals. If you just bought it id take it back. In my state you have 7 days to back out of a contract. But if you added new oil Put cardboard under the vehicle then try to turn it on (only if you didnt overfill it.) then figure out where the leak is coming from. If you can diagnose the leak i can help you from there. If its not a leak and its burning the oil and since you say its blue smoke this is generally a sign of bad pistons or piston rings. If it were thick white youd know it was a headgasket. But id say first look for the leaking oil. If not check the combustion pressure of each cylinder. Find which cylinder is off factory spec and there will most likely lie your problem. here is a video showing a compression test if you dont know how.
Note* that not all of what he says in the video applys to you as he is talking of mg's but this is to show you how to do a compression test if you so choose.
if you need further assistance please let me know. I will be glad to assist you further.

My air went out...


My 2001 limited did the same thing. I bought a refridgerant refill kit from Walmart and plugged it in, but it showed that the level of refridgerant was fine. Turns out the AC belt had come off. I found it laying in the skid plate. My auto shop charged me $25 for a new belt and putting it on.
