Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero
The check engine light (actually Service Engine Soon) is NOT on. Interestingly enough, while we were running the water pump test you suggested, the temp continued to climb as we were adding more fluid (which I am assuming means the pump was working since the fluid level continued to drop), but when we turned the car off and pulled the drain valve from the radiator and drained off about 2-3 cups, the temp gauge went down to normal operating temp. I climbed back up again when we turned the car back on. Any idea what that indicates???
Glad to hear the water pump is working!
Have you checked the seal of the radiator cap?
Another possibilty I forgot to mention is the fan clutch. This is what engages and disengages the fan. If it is working you should hear a 'click' sound as it engages and disengages.
