Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero
Any other ideas on fixing the temperature gauge problem on the Montero? Could it be a bad temperature sensor?? Water pump?? Just throwing out ideas???
Good Day again,
Sorry to hear it wasn't the thermostat, Other possible causes inlcudes low coolant, water pump and or waterpump belt, radiator blockage, and radiator cap not maintaining pressure. Check you coolant level first, fill if it's low, typically if it was the pump you would devolop a coolant leak as the pressure builds in the pump assembly. Check the belt though, any squeaks while running? Also if the seal in the raditor cap is bad then no pressure can build. To test the pump remove the raditaor cap (ensure the motor is COLD!!) and start the motor w/o the cap installed, watch the coolant level as it is should be going down slowly as it pumps through the system. Also check the seal on the raditor cap for any cracks's or visible damage.
The temp sensor is a possibilty but a rare one at that.
Hope this helps again
