Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport

3 Answers

I hear a rattling sound near the center of the engine in my 1997 mitsubishi montero sport with a 3.0 engine. It started less than 30 minutes after I had shut down and my son starting it.I do not hear the noise near the valve covers which I think is good. PLS advise what it could be.

    the rattle is more towards the top front of the engine. Near the pulleys but on top again of the engine. I place my hand on the plastic cover and the rattle is very apparent. I do not feel the rattle at the valve covers. It seems internal since the rattle seems come across as a vibration that is very noticeable.

Is it behind the engine, below then engine. Most likely if it isn't coming from the engine, then it is a loose part, possibly exhaust pipe. It's something that you will need to narrow down just by listening. Without more details, we can't be more help of the Exact problem

    The first thing I want you to do, is just tighten everything down on the plenum or top of the engine. Make sure all bolts are on tight and everything, spark plugs are well fitted, etc.

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero sport xls 3.5 truck.


Hi David, The link below is how to test the crank sensor (1997-2004 3.0l Montero, Hope this helps......CHEERS
http://easyautodiagnostics.com/mitsubishi/3.0L/crankshaft-position-sensor-test-1#3
The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is located behind the timing belt... but testing it is done without removing the timing belt or its components. This is due to the fact that the crank sensor's connector is located on top of the engine and in plain view (next to the ignition control module). In the photo below, the orange arrow points to the location of the crankshaft position sensor connectors (photo applies to: 3.0L 1997-2004 Montero Sport).
