#28 of 207 2000 Mitsubishi - Montero Sport - 3.0L V-6- 100,000+miles
Jun 02, 2012 (6:33 pm)
Hi, I'm a GM/Ford tech, Looking for some help. Read a few of the discussions and got some answers. However, this thing has some other issues. 1st: Oil Leak (lots of oil)- coming from what I beleive is the cam covers in the back of the heads. Normal??; 2nd: Battery light/Red brake light came on- Battery at 12.08 volts but not dropping off while running, load system down with lights, wipers, A/C, etc. only went down to 11.98 volts and held. Seems like alternator is trying. But not real sure.; 3rd: Engine Light on- P0421 Catalyst warm up- the cat is covered by oil (thinking oil may be leaking into it and burned it up), P0403 EGR Solonoid Circuit- Checke voltage and have 12 volts supplied, vacuum check moved EGR valve. Don't have a scan tool to activate the solonoid, do these commonly fail?? Looking for some help, Thanks in advance.

#30 of 207 2001 Montero XLS (ABS Scraping/Grinding Noise when Braking)
Oct 30, 2011 (5:40 am)
Greetings everyone, last week my 2001 montero started to act up. I'm trying to diagnose this problem my self and get some advice from the some knowledgable montero owners, and rather than me describing the problem in detail, briefly I will let you know that the noise occurs when I first step on the brake pedal, once brake is held firm for example a red light the noise goes away, on the other hand, driving is as smooth as can be, but as soon as i put my foot on the brake the grinding and scraping noise comes back and here's a link to a video I made of what the problem sounds like, please if you know what this is your advice on going about fixing it without shelling out tons of money would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time.

Does anyone know where to get reasonably priced larger disc brake kits for the montero sport. we all know that they are 'underbraked', heavy vehicles. I went to Precision Brakes, nice people but want almost 10K for a kit. any suggestions out there? Scott
#35 of 207 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Rear Brake R&R
Nov 07, 2006 (8:00 am)
I am replacing the rear brake shoes on my 2001 Montero Sport (2WD). The drum(s) will not fit back on the units due to the wider girth of the shoes. I have loosened the parking brake at the console: adjusted the brake adjusting wheel: I still am not having any success. I have depressed the calipers, but they tend to ride back out, even after opening the hydraulic valve on the right rear wheel. I am reluctant to use brute force. Is there a secret that I am unaware of to successful reinstall. I hope so...

How did you solve this problem? More importantly, how did you get the drum open in the first place to get to the brake pads? I went to change the rear pads yesterday for the first time (I bought the Sport used) and was surprised to see that kind of assembly on disc brakes.
