Mike, Sorry, I saw one of your old posts from 2009 regarding the installation of a new Instrument Panel Printed Circuit Board (part #MR532787) in your 2001 Montero. Did doing so "jack" with your odometer at all?

I had this happen to my 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Limited. Both Front Wheel Bearings went out within months of each other. Then not even a year later my rear end differentials went out. Now I am having overheating problems. I have over 259,000 miles on the car.

I went online and googled mitsubishi parts and many sites came up where you can purchase the part locally. in one of those sites, I typed the vehicle info and chose fuel system and they show a diagram with the corresponding numbers. find the number and name of the part (in this case, "fuel filter") then you can order the part online at a discount. hope this suggestion helps !
#337 of 339 Engine problems
Feb 27, 2013 (7:22 am)
I have 2001 Mitsubishi Montero LTD, few month ago appeared problem with engine. I have to start engine for 2 or 3 times. When is running on position „P“ and you push gas pedal the engine is speeds up easily. But when you change the gear to the „D“ the engine starts shake up and runs sometimes not on all 6 cylinders. Then you drive and even if you floor it the engine will not rev up over 2500 rpm. At „P“ can rev up to red pole without any problems.
I checked the fuel pump and cleaned it, I cleaned the injectors too. I tested the injectors, and they are working not equally but working. And after clean up it is still doing. Can anybody have similar experiences? Can anybody help, Thank you very much.

Had similar issue about 3 years back. Had to floor accelerator at times to keep car running. Try some cataclean & have accelerator plates adjusted. Car has now run well for a few years. Still need to press accelerator when starting on cold mornings. TK
#339 of 339 Re: 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport needing a Timing Belt Replaced... [mickeymouse2]
Mar 12, 2013 (8:52 am)
Going on fwy at 65 / 70 mpg. Timing Belt went out. It was replaced at 60,000. Thought I got a great deal, 4000 cash in November and this happened in Jan at 103,000 miles. In all probability it seems that being it is an interferance engine, that my valves are probably ruined. Got an estimate for 1800 to do the entire job. if so, ... should it just cut my losses and try to get another vehicle. This has insurance paid up for six months. Tags til next year, One owner, very nice looking with extras ? If I buy another used card, that could go too. Just at an impasse.
Any suggestions? I guess to find out if valves are ruiner or not, still have to do the change for about 650.00 before a compression check can be performed.
On top of that, I have two other FORDs that went out. different probs. Time to go for Honda or Toyota but they are so expensive. then again ...hmmm?
