Question about Mitsubishi Montero Sport

1 Answer

Hi. Just got myself a slightly-used pre-owned 2010 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. I've been hearing a whistling sound whenever I accelerate abruptly or when I go beyond 40kph+. Would this have anything to do with the intercooler turbo? Thanks.

In my Tiguan 1.4 TSI, 2010 I hear a short whistle sound while press a sudden press on the accelerator (Not the normal Turbo charger sound), VW dealer confirmed requested to change the water pump which...

I have the same whistle sound, too.. since last year... just after warranty period. I've notice it comes from the clutch of the compressor that helps the engine until 3000 rpm when the turbo goes into the action. to replicate the sound, check left side of the engine, put someone to push the clutch pedal and then press on the accelerator. Check with VW if there is a solution, although I think you will run thousands of miles and no damage because of that.

My right turning signal in my 2002 Montero sport

Hi, this is a common problem and can be very annoying the only thing you need to do to solve this problem is to replace the arm you press when you want to make a turn left or right, what happens is that the switch inside wares then it sticks in the one possition you can sometimes get it off by pushing it in slightly as you try turning it to off position but failing that the only option you have is to get the whole indicator arm replaced. Their is no way of repairing these as they are a sealed unit, if you have any breakers yards near to you then you should be able to get one from their for next to nothing other than that you need to ring your local car spares shops and see what best price you can get

My vehicle makes a load whistling sound whenever it is traveling above 60 Km per hour

That sounds like an air movement problem and not a mechanical problem. Check for something plastic or rubber hanging loose below the front end of the car. If a flap has the connecting push pin missing leaving the connecting hole open it can make this sound. Also check the firewall for missing rubber plugs. If you live in an area where there are lots of deer you might want to leave it alone as the high pitched whine keeps them away from the roadway.:)

2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS 65,000Miles. My belts seem to make a lot of annoying, loud sound. Especially after it rains. Is this a timing belt/chain issue or one of the other belts?

I have a 98 Montero Sport, whenever my belt sqeaks I check the tension and usually thats the problem. Tighten them accordingly and it should solve it. As for the timing belt, mine is a belt not chain. First time I had it changed was at 100,000 miles and the dealrship said I was cutting it close ><
