Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero

2 Answers

1998 montero,3.0 with 5spd man.trans,out of the blue did not start,I managed to push start,got it home cleaned battery connections now it will start but will kill right away unless I keep on the gas peddle did this process 8 or 9 times while letting it run for a minute or 2,still just kills right away as soon as I take foot off gas all the way. there is some slight belt squeeling noise occasionally is that a hint at maybe the Alternator being the issue or is this just the computer still resetting after I had the battery disconnected? Thanks

    When I went out to start this montero now it
    idled with no foot on gas,so I drove down street but it started to kill again unless
    kept up higher idle it seems like it does have
    something more to do with a loose belt or something

Most probably this problem is related to faulty alternator and alternator belt.This both has to be checked and faulty thing has to be replaced.The belt can be checked by its condition and alternator can be checked by meter.But if --BUT if --- the alternator and the belt checked ok then check the battery voltage.It should be 12 volt.If not then this problem is battery related.If there is 12 volt then battery is ok.But as you said that you disconnected the battery on that basis,------The most common thing that happens when batteries are disconnected is the computer forgets the idle speed and that has to be relearned.You should clean the throttle body 1st with some carb spray and a old tooth brush. -------Once clean and all back together you simply start the car and keep it idling by touching the gas pedal, in about 4 to 5 minutes it should adjust itself and start idling by itself.But if that is not helping then check the IAC valve/motor.Remove it and clean it and then check.Also confirm that there is no vacuum leak or any vacuum hose got loose. -------- The common possibilities for this problem are:--- (1) Faulty idle air control valve (2) fuel filter clogged and/ or water and impurities in the fuel system (3)faulty idle control system (4)emissions or engine control system components faulty (5)faulty or incorrectly gapped spark plugs &also check the spark plug wires (6)vacuum leak at the intake manifold or plenum or vacuum hoses. --------------- Either the idle air motor/solenoid is bad or not getting its electrical signal for whatever reason.
I don't think its the inertial fuel cutoff because the engine will run when your foot is on the pedal. It seems unwise to just go adjusting the idle up, the computer is supposed to do this. It could definitely be a sensor. But *the* place to start is the idle air motor/solenoid (goes by many names also called maf ). Its located on throttle body.You must make sure this component is getting the right electrical signal when the key is on. If you are getting a signal to that component then the idle air piece is bad. If you aren't, then the problem is sensor.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Won't start. 2 fully charged batteries tried. Cleaned battery connections. Just clicks when turning key to "Start". Car stopped while driving. Towed home.


This sounds like a loose connection at the starter, Follow the positive battery cable down to the starter. Check the connection for being hot (rusty color). There are two large connections on the starter check both. If one or the other looks discolored the starter may be damaged. Be sure the engine is not locked up. Try to turn the engine by hand at the main crank bolt.

1998 Montero Sport 4x4 V6 transmission with 205,000 miles doesn't shift. Just changed the tranny filter and fluid and it still doesn't shift.


I have never seen a trans with 205,000 miles on it,
& I once owned a trans repair shop

So pull it out & have it rebuilt

Fluid is changed to replace it's ability to
remove heat, no other reason

I try to start my vitara but all it does is clicks and the gas gauge moves up alittle then drops back down acts like it not have any gas and yes it does have gas


The clicking that you hear is the starter solenoid. You either have a dead battery, or a corroded battery cable connection. You cant always see the second one, so it's best to clean the connections wether or not you think they look corroded.
Either way, jump starting or push starting (if it's a manual trans) will get you home.

I would start with checking the battery and starter connections. If they seem tight and clean I'd look at the starter itself as the possible culprit.

I have a 1998 hyundai elantra i had to push it in


hi from uk have read your symptoms and from what you have described your starting /failure to turn engine ? 1st have you checked the leads to the starter motor are secure ? especially the single thin wire that fits to the starter solenoid on a spade connector ensure it is fully clipped on ? if ok ? may i suggest you try this ?= connect a single jump lead to the earth connector post on battery then the other end of jump lead to a suitable earth connection on the engine then try starter ifthis works your problem is a faulty/corroded or loose earth connection from the battery to the chassis/andon to engine usually connected to a bolt on point where trans connects to engine ? for info i have come across this problem a few times on accents and found that for some reason the thin wire connected to starter solenoid had come loose due to not clipped fully on also the earth lead from batteries have not had clean/securety loose bolt hope this helps and wish you luck

Military here and working on a foreign car and not a hummer haha. have a 1998 montero sport. bad starter, replaced and now can arc silinoid to fire starter which would only spark before i replaced but will...


Check the condition of the power and ground cables, Bypass the cables with a set of jumper cables, connect the NEG post to the engine with the black cable, and POS to the Starter Solenoid with the red cable. then try it if it starts the cables are bad or poorly connected.

check the battery voltage in stand by and cranking, try jump starting the truck. if the truck will start with a jump the battery could be bad.
If the starter solenoid is separate from the starter then it is possible the solenoid is bad.

Hope this is of some help.

Engine keeps dying after I turn it on.


I had the same problem when I did battery maintenance on my 1988 Montero Sport. The problem was explained to me, that the car's electronic pollution control computer data was erased when the battery is disconnected or the battery totally discharges. The car's computer uses this data to regulate idle speed and other engine factors. The solution given to me was to recheck the battery connections (make sure they are clean, and tighten down), start the vehicle, and just let it sit and idle for about 15 - 20 minutes (without racing the engine or driving the vehicle). This will rebuild and repopulate the car's computer engine data it needs to make adjustments. Hope this helps.
Mark.
