Mitsubishi Montero Sport - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The hardest part of this repair is removing the two nuts. Soak them with penetrating oil first. If the nuts loosen stop and remove the vacuum line. Then remove the two nuts and pull off the EGR valve. A 90deg. mini pick and carb cleaner can be gently used to remove carbon buildup in both chambers. Before getting too carried away with cleaning. You should perform a vacuum test. Find out if the diaphragm is intact or leaking. Also see if the plunger moves freely when vacuum is applied. Sometimes the old gasket can be reused but don't count on it. They do break and if so both surfaces will need to be thoroughly scraped and cleaned. Let me know if there is anything else. Good luck.

You will need the code to unlock the radio. First you must leave the key in the ON position for one hour with the radio display on.
The radio will shut itself off, and next time you turn it on "code" will be displayed again.
To get your code you need to pull your radio out to read the serial number, then provide that to your dealer for decoding, or present a question here with the serial number and we can decode it for you and instruct you how to input it.

Follow your shift cable down to the transmission, it will be attached to the end of it. Before that, clear the code and see if it comes back again. Could be just a momentary glitch.

Radio units when disconnected from the battery supply lock as an anti theft feature.
New units are usually supplied with the code in the paperwork it came with. With a used unit you will need the serial number marked on the side or the back of the radio. You can use this to find the code on lots of specialist websites.
Try more than one as some will charge for the service and others don't.

This was a weakness of the Montero Sport models. If you google Montero Sport 4WD light flashing you will find lots of information. The best troubleshooting article I have found is here: This article is about the Pajero, but the Montero Sport uses the same platform so this article applies.

The Montero Sport uses several switches and vacuum modules to put the system in and out of 4WD. If any of these malfunction, the light may flash continuously, flash intermittently, fail to come on, and it can trigger the anti-lock brake light to come on. In brief, if the 4WD shift lever is engaged, but the transfer case doesn't engage, the sensors show a mismatch and will cause the light to act funny including triggering the vehicle's anti-lock break light. These SUV's need to be shifted into 4WD regularly to keep the switches and mechanisms working correctly.

Try this before you even think about a visit to the $$$$$ Mitsubishi Dealer:
Shift the 4WD lever between 4WD High, Low and 2WD at least 100 times. Often, this will free the mechanisms and resolve the problem. It worked for me after three years of trying everything else including the dealer replacing switches, etc. If this does fix it for you, just be sure to shift the vehicle in and out of 4WD several times at least one a week and this will keep the mechanisms lubricated and functioning correctly. If that doesn't work, try the above link (article). Good luck!

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...
