How do you replace the spark plugs on a 1995 Mitsubishi Montero?

I purchased the Bush Platinum spark plugs and cables. Total cost: about $115.00. The work took about 4-5 hours; I did not want to rush this at all! � Here is what we did: 1. Remove Air intake (this is easy to say... but just take your time, it is not impossible to get the job done). 2. Loosen the V3000 (LS) air cover, just undo the screws the hold that part. 3. Number your old spark plug cables so you know where they go. 4. Replace ONE spark plug at a time and change the old cable for a new cable of the same length (mark the new cable with the same number of your old cable in case you loose track later). 5. Place the V3000 (LS) back in place, do not over-tighten the screws! 6. Place back into place the Air filter tube; make all the connection previously removed and you should be finish.

Take your time and do not rush this work - if needed take some pictures with your digital camara to remember where things go.

How do you repair the antenna mast on a 1992 Corvette?

Go to the Delco radio shop and ask for a rod and mast assemley. You then take the antenna apart and install the new parts. Hope this help out. cananda Remove the retaining nut, the wrench is in the mast kit. Have somone turn on the radio as you gently pull the antenna away from the car. If most of the white cable comes out with the mast, follow the diagram on the instruction sheet and orient the toothy part of the cable corectly. Have somone turn on the radio as you feed the cable in. Fasten the retaining nut and turn the radio on and off a few times.

1998 montero sport Mitsubishi LS I start cranking but it keep turn over but wont start the engine what is wrong?

You must remove the aluminum Intake manifold ( upper & middle portion only ) to access the spark plugs. It's best left to a Professional Mechanic to do the job. The cost can vary. Look at atleast $400.00.. Just as a side note. The biggest hassle will be putting all those hoses & wire plugs you disconnected back in the right spot. The other is locating the proper bolts ( under all those hose & wires ) to remove the intake. Remember that this intake manifold only breathes air so no antifreeze BS to worry about. If you have the proper tools, patients & alot of time you can do it. I suggest perhaps taking some digital photos of the engine before you dig in - it will assist in getting some hoses back to the right spot ( label or color code hoses & wires first ) Good Luck ! And I will be doing this this weekend!

Changing the sparkplugs and wires in the Montero Sport, regardless of the year, is not an easy task. If you are not mechanically incline, then take it to the dealer and pay them to do the job....should run about $300 to $400. If you are mechanically then you may attempt to do the job yourself by following the step by step instruction on the web link listed here: http://www.monterosportonline.com/diy-perf2.html

Good luck!

How do you replace the headlight assembley on a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport?

A. You will need a flat-head screw driver. B. under the hood you will see that behind the headlight there's a housing type fixture. Turn counter-clock wise to remove this housing. The bulb is seated within this housing. You will notice that you can't simply pull the bulb out. There's a tab that houses the bulb within the outer housing which prevents you from doing so. Use your screw driver to hold this tab down while pulling the bulb housing out. If you have difficulty locating this tab, note that your replacement bulb also has this same tab on it.

How do you replace the alternator on a 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport?

I hope that i can be of help. I had to replace my alternator. First remove the positive and the negative cables from battery. Take time to look at manner inwhich the belt is woven around the alternator and the pulley, it will have to go back on the same way. Remove the air intake nozzle by removing the 2-10mm bolts on the radiator support. Remove the electrical plug from the back of the alternator. squeeze white clip down with small flat bladed screwdriver and then squeeze the dark gray clip, I found it easier to remove after the belt and bolts were removed. There are two bolts that are holding on the alternator. The top one is a 14mm and the bottom one is a 12mm. The belt tensioner is located between the alternator and the crank pulley. You need to jack up the front of the vehicle and remove the splash pan (4-14mm bolts). Look up and you will see a hex headed bolt on the bottom of the tensioner pulley. Again, 14mm, a little awkward, but a socket and extentsion will clear the lines. Back off generously and you will have enough slack to remove the belt. When replacing, put the top bolt first, then the bottom. Belt back on, double check for alignment, and then go underneath and tighten the bolt to the tensioner until snug, not too tight. The other two belts on this engine all remove and tighten with the same proces. Once you have the correct tension reattach battery cables.

How do you fix high idle problem on a 89 240sx?

If your idle was fine and then just became high, don't adjust the idle control screw. Your problem would be indicative of another issue. Perhaps a vacuum leak. turn the idle control screw to the left ... no neither of those.....your are getting air that is accounted for by the mass air flow sensor....there for its either a) throttle plate not closing or b) idle air controller stuck open.

What is the best grade of oil to use on a 3hp Briggs and stratton lawn edger?

Use a straight 30wt oil of your choice. It does depend on if it is the old flat head valve engines, or the new over-head valve engines, which is because of the new EPA laws....all flat heads use 30 hd... the over-head valve engines 10-w30, although prefrence is your own, Briggs & Strattons oil is actually Mobil 1, ( I seen that when I toured Briggs & Strattons factory while working for Central Distributors of Briggs.) Briggs & Stratton recommends the use of SAE 30w detegent oil with an automotive rating of "SJ" or higher when ambient air temperatures are 40 degrees or higher. Under 40 degrees it is acceptable to use a 10w-30 or 5w-30 depending on the weather, but air cooled engines run hotter than liquid cooled so check and change oil frequently. It is also acceptable to use a SYNTHETIC 5w-30 oil year round, but the oil must be changed as often as regular engine oil.

Why would your V-6 Montero crank but not start when the tach shows 1500 RPM and the ignition switch is on?

Beware of engine ECU (Engine Control Unit) memory wipe out after total battery loss - you may not be able to crank as the throttle correction history dat has been lost - on automatic transmission try to add idle RPM with your right foot when pressing the brake with the tip of your left foot and drive with two pedals (gentle with braking!) to the next repair shop which can re-calibrate the ECU. good luck david (Pajero 1995 3.0L V6) check the distributor, or the coil, had a mustang 5.0 that did the same thing. good luck Mine does the same thing, but I've never put a Tach on it. What I have found is that it does it when it is hot and after it has been driven for a while. the temporary solution I've found is with the ingnition cranked, shifting from park to neutral will start the car . The Haynes manuel says that it is the Neutral start switch, but I have yet to try and replace it. hope that helps. My Montero is a 93. Greg http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/mitsubishimontero/

Radio

How do you take the radio out of a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport to locate the serial number?

remove the nobs and bolts behind them, take off the face plate, then you should see the little screws holding the stario inplace. The #s are on the back .

if your gentle you can pull the cup holder slightly out and insert a small flat head screw driver inside to lift up the bottom plate of the cup holder assembly and the number is written on the front top of the radio.

I just removed the cup holder and used a small mirror (like the one a dentist uses, available at hobby stores) and a flash light to read them. You should see 2 sets, 1 begins with "MR" that's the part # and the other is the serial #. Just remember that after you write them down to reverse them.

How do you tell which wire is the positive and negative and which is for the high and low beam on a 2001 Montero Sport LS?

Testing Polarity on wiresThe basic way to determine polarity on a wire is to probe it with a digital voltmeter. Modern vehicles use many solid state controls for various functions and circuits so ONLY use a digital voltmeter/multimeter.

Firstly, go purchase a cheap digital multimeter (from radio shack or harbor freight, starting at about $5 ). Put the meter in dc volt mode, 12 volts (or more) range. Hold the black meter probe on a metal body/engine ground-point and probe the wire in question with the red probe while the circuit is powered on.

If the wire has 12v + power on it you will get a volt reading. If the wire is open or has ground on it then there will be no 12volt reading.

Next, if there was no reading, repeat the test with the red probe attached onto the cars battery at the PLUS terminal (+), then probe the wire in question with the black probe (with the circuit powered up). If there is a 12volt reading then that wire has ground on it, no response means an open wire or the wire has B+ power on it.

Your electical system should be safe if you use a digital volt meter for this operation.

WARNING! Use the info following at your own risk! Improper use of a testlight can DESTROY your controller circuits!

If the circuit under test is a high power circuit (enough amperage normally goes thru the wire in question to light up a 12 volt lightbulb or headlight for instance) then a digital voltmeter CAN give a false indication of 12 volt power as that type of meter draws virtually no power to speak of. In other words, the meter can indicate power but a high resistance connection in the circuit could still prevent enough current flow to light up a bulb.

You can test this type of circuit with a load generating tester know as a 12 volt testlight. Here is where the danger lies; If in fact you are probing into a digital control circuit with a testlight (instead of the power circuit you thought you were working on) you will short it out and most likely destroy the solidstate control mechanism.

You can test for ground by clipping the testlight cord to B+ befor probing the wires or you can test for power by clipping the testlight cord to ground befor probing a powered on circuit. You can also test a bulb by grounding one contact and probing another with a testlight clipped to B+, if the testlight comes on at all no matter how dimly then the bulb filament connected to the terminal you probed is good.

To determine the highbeam wire unplug the connector from the headlight and probe the connections carefully for B+ with the circuit powered up. The one that has power only when the high beams are turned on (blue light on dashboard lit up) is for the highbeams. The one with no power ever is the ground and the other is for the lowbeams.

without being too confusing.

Where is the flasher unit to fix a left turn signal on a '96 Mitsubishi Montero?

Hey Tina==If just the left signal is staying on, it isn't the flasher. One of the bulbs, either front or rear, are burned out. Find out which one isn't working and I think you have to take the housing off of the car to change the bulb. GoodluckJoe If the bulb is not burned out, it's most likely the turn signal combination switch. The turn signal portion of it easily breaks off internally, leaving the signal in the last position (left in your case). The combination turn signal and light switch will need to be replaced. On some Montero models that can be be done without removing the steering wheel. Just removed the bottom steering wheel cover, move the steering wheel in the lowest position and remove the top cover. Then remove the two screws that keep the combination switch in place, unplug the wiring plugs (press plug release and pull out). Relative easy procedure. Buying a new switch will be the most painful part, OEM parts are expensive. Maybe you cna find a refurbished combination switch at an acceptable price.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1996 Mitsubishi Montero?

If you're just replacing the bulb..... Passenger Side: Reach down and unscrew the white clamp. Pull towards engine to remove the bulb. Unclip the black wire holster and the bulb should come off. Replace with new bulb and make sure you dont scratch or touch it. Push bulb back into dome in until snug, put on the white clamp, then plug it back in.

Driver Side: Remove the radiator/antifreeze overflow container by sliding it upwards. And then do the same thing from the other light. Make sure u put the container back.

I just replaced my factory lights with the hyper white look, looks great...no problems, no instructions were needed.

If you are replacing the entire glass casing, I'm not sure how to help you. Look for screws I guess. Hope this helped somehow.

How do you adjust headlights on a Montero Sport?

Take it to the dealer or a shop that has the proper equipment to do this properly. You don't have the correct tools. I have taken my 2002 Montero Sport to the dealer 3 times to have the headlights adjusted to no avail. What kind of tools are necessary to adjust a headlight? Shouldn't it be a screw driver? I can get closer to the specs than Pete Moore Imports in Pensacola, FL. Ok if the dealer is no help then here is the best you can do without professional equipment. You'll need a screwdriver and a wall or garage door to adjust the headlights. Start by parking on a level surface in front of the garage door or wall; turn on the headlights and look at the door or wall to see whether they are aligned properly. Using the large screw near the headlight, adjust the level and position of the headlight up, down or side to side. Tighten or loosen the screw to get the beam pointed in the right direction. Some newer cars have a level that makes this process simple. Be sure to get the bubble in the level in position by turning the screw.

Why does the antenna on a 1999 Montero Sport make a grinding noise for about ten seconds when it goes up?

There's a plastic cable with teeth inside your antenna. A gear in the antenna base engages this "cable" and pushes/pulls the antenna. Sounds like either the gear or cable has some broken teeth. It won't hurt for the motor to keep going like this, but your antenna may break at any time. hth, K All true, and new antennas are fairly cheap <$40 and easy to install http://www.antennamastsrus.com/Mitsubishi/Montero%20Sport/Mitsubishi%20Montero%20Sport%201997-2004.htm

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE OUT INTAKE MANIFOLD TO GET TO ALL DRIVERS SIDE PLUGS AND THE ONE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE GOOD LUCK

what kind of answer was that, is their anyone with brains out there

***the person is 100% right. I just had my brother in law change my plugs and wires, Auto body wanted to charge me 500.00 dollars, because of the difficulty

Go to www.monterosportonline.com and they will give you detail by detail including pics. Best of luck because there is a lot of work to do.

Yes correct the intake will have to come off , but i am trying to find out why there may have been sludge on the spark plugs is it normal because they are located in the valve cover or not?

Yes the plugs go thru the valve covers. if there is oil or sludge as you say on the outside of the plugs,you will ned to change the valve cover gaskets felpro's gasket set comes with new orings for each hole to prevent oil leaking thru onto the plugs.

This tune up isnt for the weekend oil change guy but you can do it if you take your time and have a good memory........theres alot of unbolting, wire harness unpluging and vacuum unplugging as well! ya might wanna take pics as ya go so everything goes back together correctly. Mark all the spark plug wires at the coil so ya know where they plug it at cause once its together ya cant tell who is who! The firing order is on the wrote on the intake.

How do you replace the ECU on a 1999 Mitsubushi Montero Sport?

I'm not sure of that models location of the the ECM, or ecu, but I'm betting it's under the passenger side seat, or located on the right side passenger kick panel, if it's under the seat, removing the seat makes it way easier, unplug the old ecm's connector(s), undo 3-4 10mm bolts that ground the ecm to the trucks metalwork, install the new ecm by boldint it to the metalwork first to insure you do not accidentally short with static or what not the new ecm, then plug the harness back in. If it's on the kickpanel, same process, just be prepared to get a crick in your back when you take it out.

Disconnect the TPS sensor connector. It's the lower of the 2 connectors. The other one is the idle sensor. Turn ignition key to on. At throttle fully closed, the reading on termial C of the connector should read 0.4v to 0.5v. (Looking INTO the connector with the notch on the connector pointing UP, C is the right most pin) At throttle fully open, the reading should be 4v. If readings are wrong Loosen the 2 holding screws (only enough to twist the sensor). Adjust accordingly. Tighten the screws.

Would a Nissan 300 ZX turbo engine fit into a 240 SX?

Answer

I'm pretty sure you can even fit a 300zx twin turbo engine (VG30dett)into your 240sx. Many people would perfer a skyline turbo/twin turbo engine(RB25det/RB26dett) though. All you need is lots of money and access to a shop to change your motor/transmition mounts, and cut off some stuff to make room. If you're interested, check this guy 1991 240sx with a skyline motor, and they may even help you with your 300zx engine if you contact them. http://www.mckinneymotorsports.com/projects.php

I'm positive you can put a vg30dett in a 240sx cuz people put ls1 corvette engines in them all the time my friend a has one with a ls2 in it
