Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero
I have Montero LS 95. I do recall going on very sharp uphill on automatic transmission and the car almost died and I had to push on the gas to make it move and because I did not know that you can use manual transmission. The A/T red light start coming on and when it comes on I lose pulling power. Ever since that trip, i still have the A/T light comes on when I drive the car for long time (when the car is warmed up 10-30 miles) and i don't know how to resolve this problem. I went to AT specialist and they did diagnostic service on it and all of them said everything looks fine. I still have this A/T red light problem ever since that trip and it keeps coming when the car is warm (driving for 10-30 miles). When I turn the engine off, the A/T light goes off but comes on again after 3-4 miles of driving What do you think i should do to get rid of the A/T light from coming on? I forgot to mention one thing: I lose pulling power when the car comes to full stop and i have to shift to a second gear to get the car moving. Any suggestions. Some said it could be the speed sensor?!! Please help
Something in the transmission was damaged or broken going up that very sharp hill,when it almost died.The A/T light flashing is the vehicle's computer has sensed something malfunctioning,and is flashing because of that..It has a diagnostic trouble code stored in it.More than likely,the trans is going to have to come out to be repaired.I would remove the trans pan first.Relatively easy to do,and if inside the pan there are chunks or sizeable pieces of metal,then there is definitely damage internally.
