#294 of 341 TPS voltage calibration???
Mar 03, 2011 (11:58 am)
I'm in the process of replacing the TPS sensor, however, I have read in several places online that I must calibrate the TPS once its replaced. I have a digital multimeter, however, I'm not really sure how to calibrate the TPS. The TPS looks as a plug and play type of sensor, but it does have a spring in the back that looks as it can be rotated for adjustment, Is that how i'm supposed to calibrated???? Also, where is the TPS located in a Mitsubishi montero sport (2001)????
#296 of 341 Possible electrical problem...
Apr 12, 2011 (7:06 am)
1998 4WD Montero LS.
Alright, so my alternator has been replaced a few months ago. My ongoing problem at the moment is that something is draining my battery. My mechanic took a look and found that an alternator wire was causing a short so he fixed that. I got my car back, but I still don't trust it. When I drive it feels sluggish when I accelerate. I feel the need to put my car in park and rev it to keep my battery from pooping out on me when I am at a stop or stop light. As I was pulling into a parking lot my car kind of died but it managed to start. I know something is still wrong because my warning lights will flicker at times and that is when I start to get worried and paranoid because that's how I know my car is still not 100%. Someone have any ideas or suggestions? I have a busy schedule with work and school and this just adds to my stress.
#297 of 341 harmonic balancer?
Apr 13, 2011 (9:12 pm)
I have a 1992 montero sport sr . It would idle really rough on humid days, and there were a few when it wouldn't start at all. It started acting really bad and I called my boyfriend who told me to park it and he would look at it. When he got it home the next day, he parked it in the garage and the harmonic balancer was hanging on the timing belt. When he puts it back into place and he snugs the center bolt as tight as he can it still wiggles. The part that fits against the cam is chewed up alittle but he thinks there is some other part that fits between it and the cam. It has 139,000 miles on it and the belt had been replaced 16 months ago. Any idea if there is a missing part? or suggestions on how to fix it?

2002 Montero, 107K
Fan blower only works on #4 setting.
Where is my fix?
Info irrelevant to post: bought in 2003. Was a rental before I got it.
1. Didn't want to shift into 4WD after not being used all summer.
Eventually went in on its own.
MY FIX: put it in 4WD once a month even when not needed
2. Lights on 4WD indicator burned out one by one
First left rear, then right rear.
MY FIX: Don't look at them. I've owned vehicle long enough to feel
what it is doing.
3. Bad hub bearing passenger front.
Long time problem. Thought it was choppy tires from bad
alignment. Felt it as I steered. Got progressively worse over 1.5
years (yep that long) until it finally said "hey, you got a problem"
Got new tires, reputable alignment still present, but turned into an
intermittent grind, rather that a "tension" when steering.
MY FIX: Dealership replaced hub housing. $530.
INTERESTING NOTE: Dealership was insistent on replacing my
brakes and rotors at the same time because "the mechanic might
not be able to fit the caliper back on" After a firm, "You're not
changing the brakes, I can do that myself (instead of their $350
insta-quote)," they decided to check with the mechanic to see if he
could and SURPRISE, he could!
4. Recently installed a car started because we were warned that it would
void the warranty. Warranty is up, so on it went.
5. Cargo door wouldn't actuate properly.
MY FIX: WD-40
6. Interior smells like smoke.
NO FIX: Can't get my wife to stop smoking.

Hi I'm having the same problem, but continues until 45mph or 50mh then start again when driving at 60mph, so I haven't go above that since long, long time ago. How did you fix the problem or what is it?
Thank you for your time.
#301 of 341 '91 Mitsubishi Montero 5 speed won't turn over.
Jul 25, 2011 (6:05 pm)
I have a '91 5 speed Montero with 270,000 miles. Runs great! Yesterday it refused to turn over.
It felt like a dead or almost dead battery, Battery is new ( 3/11) Now it won't turn over.
All the electrics work, lights, radio etc. The left turn indicator would not flash recently now it works. I am wondering if the problem is in the key switch and the turn indicator issue as well as the non start are related.

Does the check engine light come on because the EGR can be getting stuck pushing fumes back into the engine causing it to shut down that is what happened with mine.

My problem still exists and that is the first thing that sounds like the exact thing that could be wrong with my Montero. Thank you and I will check it out and let you know.
