2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

You need 9.8 quarts of Dexron III or later, for a dry fill. A wet service fill will be less, about 6-7 quarts. Autozone or any other auto spares outlet will have it.

I can think of no reason why you should have this trouble.

The drive shaft assembly is generally made up of an outer constant velocity joint, a shaft and an inner plunge type cv joint - your description doesn't make it completely clear what it is you replaced. Replacing the cv shaft suggests you could have replaced the shaft and outer joint, the outer joint or the complete assembly.

There are alternative types of joints that could be used - the Hardy Spicer type for instance, which must be "timed" with it's opposite number at the other end of the shaft in order to eliminate an output speed variation when transmitting torque at an angle, perhaps the problem you are experiencing.

That is the only idea that occurs to me apart from the possibility the abs system might have developed a fault...

its an egr CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION which means can be any type of problem with the whole circuit -- wiring --connections fuses relays etc not just the egr valve more than likely the valve was good need to check and test the whole egr system

hi putting seafoam in fuel will clean the valves and pistons over time to use to do lifters you need to add to oil measure out the right amount for the oil measurements on the can.. also the tapping is it more when its cold or just the same no matter hot or cold or is it more louder when hot. when was the last time the timing was checked, are you using 5w/30 or 10w/30 oil.

Does vehicle engine turn over. If yes, then pay attention to fuel system. Check for good power and ground at fuel pump connector. If no power check fuel pump fuse, relay and for open wires (power, ground) to fuel pump.

If you already replaced fuel pump and filter and still no fuel pressure at injectors rail, your problem is more than likely electrical. Check for good power and ground at fuel pump connector. If no power at fuel pump connector, check your fuel pump fuse, relay and wiring for opens(broken) feed wire.

Could be an oil leak that's causing the alternator to go out. I had my alternator replaced and had my cam bore seals replaced, but the alternator just went out only after having it for 1 month. Going to have it replaced again tomorrow. It could be that the oil was leaking on the new one before I got the oil problem fixed. Before the brake and battery light came on, my service engine soon light came on and I took it to the dealer and they told me it was my 02 sensor so I had that replaced. A week ago my service engine soon light came on again. I checked my gas cap and made sure it was tightened and the light went off after I cranked it up again. I replaced the battery after the alternator went bad the first time because the battery died after 2 weeks. I don't have any solutions to this problem but it is very frustrating. I bought this SUV brand new in 2002 and have not had any problems in 9 years, until this situation. I had the timing belt changed at my 60,000 interval, fuel injections cleaned, I even had the transmission power flush at the dealear suggestion. Car drives great always has, but I don't want to keep having to have a new alternator and battery every 1-2 months. If anyone knows the problem and a way to fix it please post.

Hi Terry:
Is there the remote possibility that the serpentine belt is not routed correctly?
It sounds like the pump could be rotating in the wrong direction.
Rule of thumb.....
Inside (ridges) have to fit on pulleys so that ridges fit in slots.
Outside (smooth) fit on pulleys so that ridges do not contact face of pulley.

Hi Maryann:
Seats are usually bolted to the floor so removal involves kneeling on the ground (with the door open) and looking under the seat. Use the appropriate socket to remove the bolts and the seat will lift out. There may be some wires to unplug.
You will probably find that the slide mechanism is jammed or a spring has come off. Repair should be straightforward.

Oh my gawd, lol. Clean the screen and probably replace head gasket. Have head checked for flatness when removed because these Mitsubishi engines love to warp the heads when baked. Might as well pull the engine and work on it that way. Just go through and look for problems.

90% clogged? with what? I would think the filter would of caught the crap instead of the screen. Did you have the car at a mechanic lately, where they possibly could of done something to provoke that clog? . I have never heard one of them screens clogged up like that, EVER!

When you put Freon in, there should be oil in the freon also. Usually says it on the bottles. Make sure it is not the belt making chirp sounds either. Loose belt can make them chirps or squeaks.

These rarely go out, you can find them all over the wrecking yards also if you need one.

If they are in good condition, why replace them? Replace them with the same exact size you remove from them. You do not have to go 20 over or 30 over unless you have the engine or crankshaft turned at a shop where they remove a small amount of metal to make the surfaces nice. If that happens, you would need to compensate for that metal removal by installing an over sized bearing. But the shop would also be required to inform you on what size if that happened.

I use a prerun grease that is black. really doesn't matter as long as it is thick enough to stay until your ready to start the motor. Don't forget to prefill your new oil filter with new oil. This will decrease the time that oil fills the filter and save milliseconds that could cause damage to new parts. Also, go to the auto store and buy a bottle of zinc additive for the first breakin period of the engine bearings. Zinc is a very needed substance in the oil for new engines. It will help protect your engine during break in period. I use the lucas brand and pour it in with the new oil. I also use Castrol oil because it keeps engine parts clean and I have used it all my life, (my preference only) Stick with the 30wt oils because they seem to have the better additives needed, but use the zinc on first 500 miles. Take your time with what your doing, any mistake will mean disaster in a very short time. I know by experience it doesn't take more then 25mph to seize an engine. Clean your passages also. Anything stuck in a passage will crash a motor faster then you can shut it off. Watch you oil pressure and be sure it comes up quickly when first starting. All that hard work your doing, you better check yourself over and over for mistakes.
