Cleaned t body all ports on top. 170ish K. Oil lite at idle in gear. Lots of vac.

was in shop for other repairs, shifter was found in 4wdL

Shifting from 4-high to AWD issue with my 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 3.5L.

It goes from 4-Low (all the way forward)
To 4-Hi (middle)
To AWD (all the way back)

Yes, I put it in neutral before shifting and I let it sit for like 10 seconds to give it some time to engage.

I've also tried doing it while in park.

Anyway, while shifting from 4-Hi to AWD, then beginning to drive, it makes a grinding sound while going, as if it's not completely engaging/disengaging. So I have to shift it back into 4-Hi to make it sound normal.

On a side note - I'm not quite sure while in 4-lo or 4-hi it's actually engaged because while driving in a tight Circle it doesn't "Buck" like four wheel drive normally does.

There are NO engine lights (or other arning lights) indicating a problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.

The montero has been sitting for month and the horn stayed on and high/low horn disconnected , tried to start the car and will not stay started when put in drive position, battery is older then 5 years but hold charge , alternator is good. Carbon built up and not car smokes when pressing acelarator. It was running just fine before it set to long , what could it be?

parking lock will not engage, cannot remove ignition key and steering sill not lock

My hill parking break light comes on. And stays on when driving or park. Also it's a sound like something is being let out sounds like air but tire is fine coming from rear

When handed the Fail certificate for my 2002 Montero Sport 3.5L from the smog station, I went straight to Pep Boys for the Bank 2 Sensor 2 02 sensor specified on the paperwork as being faulty. With the Bosch 13801 sensor in hand, I went home and got to work. The plug didn't line up exactly with the insert, so I broke of a little plastic lip on the Bosch, and slipped it in.
Alas, the check engine light keeps coming back on. Twice I've disconnected the battery for 20 minutes. Though the memory is wiped out, the radio continues to work, and doesn't need to be rebooted with a code.
Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

I edino,i a a challenge with my jeep, the engine is having a thick sound, from normal sound and on the dashboard the battery light and break light is on when the car is on, also my stirring is very Steve to turn. Plus what is the course off all this problems. Edithompson2004@yahoo.com

Code P0401 still exist, I cleared the code several times, checked the solenoid related to EGR valve, the EGR itself cleaned and its working normal, all related tubes are good, no leaks, there is constant 12 volt exist at EGR solenoid when turning the ignition switch on position, and goes away after couple of seconds when switched off. Any suggestion or more to look? Thank you.

We are at a red light and the car idels low and then stalls

I need the best shop ASAP. AND estimate. Third time with this problem and have replaced battery and alternator 2 times within 6 months.

Head gasket is blown on 2002 engine and it has 140K miles on it, so I just want to replace the engine. Will a 1997 engine be interchangeable and still have the capacity to run all the interfaces in the 2002 model?
