1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Problems

Loose or Broken Crankshaft Pulley Bolt

The crankshaft pulley bolt may become loose or break causing loss of power steering operation and other related engine accessories. Some of these vehicles may be involved in a recall for this issue. Our technicians tell us that an updated bolt may be available. Replacing as necessary and properly torquing the crankshaft bolt will commonly correct this issue.

Handling Issues Due to Worn or Damaged Front Suspension or Steering Components

A vibration, steering wheel shimmy, or vehicle pull to the left or right may be noted. These conditions are commonly caused by worn or damaged front suspension or steering components. Our technicians tell us that extra care should be taken to inspect the front end components often and replace any worn or damaged parts as soon as possible to try and avoid these potentially unsafe conditions.

Front Brake Wear Issues

A pulsation may be noted upon brake apply, most commonly caused by warped front brake rotors. Front brake pads may also wear out prematurely. Our technicians recommend replacing worn pads and rotors with quality replacement parts in order to achieve the best possible longevity for the front brake components.

We bought our 1998 Montero Sport from an individual two years ago and had the timing belt replaced as soon as we bought it. The only other issues we've have with the vehicle were an alternator replacement ( did this twice because the first one was bad ), and replacing the door locking mechanism on the left rear passenger door. Oh - forgot; replaced valve cover gasket and main seal to repair oil...
