Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Stacey_jo219, You dont state here where the sound is coming from. Does it sound like the top of the engine? If it is, then you could have a bad lifter or two. This usually happens when the engine is run with not enough oil in it. This sounds more like a ticking sound than a knock as you state here. This will sometimes go away with time when you have the proper oil level in the engine. If it doesn't then the affected lifters will have to be replaced which is hard to diagnose which ones are bad so they are usually all replaced. If the sounds like it is from the bottom of the engine (this is more like a knocking sound) then it is usually a bad bearing on the crankshaft and the engine will have to be replaced. This is cheaper than rebuilding the engine. These are just two possibilities of what your problem could be. If you wish, resubmit your question and try to be more specific about where exactly the sound is coming from. Good luck with this.
