Question about 2007 Mitsubishi Montero Limited

1 Answer

I have an 02 Mitsubishi Montero Limited at about 50 mph it makes a rumbling/vibrating sound that lasts anywhere from 5-10 seconds. The sound and feel of it is exactly like the ridges they put in the road near stop signs that vibrate when you go across them. It does not happen all the time and it happens so randomly that I can't associate it with anything but the 50 mph. My montero is 4 wheel drive but I keep in 2H and according to the manual the back 2 wheels should be illuminated on my panel but they are not. No matter what gear I put the thing in those 2 back wheels will not show up. Also the middle light on the illuminator box blinks orange after about 20 minutes of driving. This may or may not be related but it started about the same time that the sound did.

I just had the same noice it started the same way. I would hear then it would go away. Its is my girlfriends car, so i figured when it got worse i could pin point it and fix it. Will that's what happened. It got so bad i had to drive it home that day. i could not figure out where it was coming from i knew it was the front i could not tell if it was the differential or a axle CV joint. So I jacked the whole car up off the ground carfully and had someone in drive seat place it in gear no noise. Then i had them place it in 4 wheel drive and there was the noice. It turned out to be the wheel bearing hub assy.
Spent 100 bucks for new hub fix problem, napa had. Autozone sells a Timken which is the top of the line MADE IN THE USA. But since i was trade this in soon got the china one.

2001 Montero Sport does not have power when climbing mountain pas

Considering what has been done, the problem sounds like a fuel issue. Do a fuel pressure test, it should be 47-50 psi with vacuum line pulled off fuel pressure regulator. If low replace filter and try again. If still low replace pump. Please make sure to rate me when done. Thanks

2001 montero/ rumbling noise in front

There are a few things that this could be, and I see that you have replaced a few of the items that it could be but steering systems are a weird thing so here ya go:

  1. Excessive inner CV joint angle
  2. Sticking inboard joint assembly
  3. Lack of lube at the ball joints
  4. Loose upper strut mount
  5. Worn tie rods
  6. Loose stabilizer bar
  7. Loose suspension bolts
  8. And, believe it or not, a blister or bump on the tire
If you got a Chilton's or Haynes manual to do this job, it states in there how much grease should be packed into the bearings. Also, making sure of the length of your CV axle.

Post more info you would like, to pass on.
