1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Problems
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.
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.
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.
