gasket leak from front and is o2 sensor necessary to fix?

How can I replace myself-is there something unusual for this car compared to my Chevy and Dodge?

When the problem presents I turn off the A/C for a couple of minutes and then it starts to work fine again, also if I set the blower to the max. sometimes it helps.
It always feels like the engine of the car is really suffering when the A/C is on, it does not overheats or anything but it just feels like is "overworking" more than what the normal would be. Also it makes way more noise, I know this because this is the second Montero Sport I have and I know how is supposed to sound and feel when the A/C is running.
Another thing is that if the temperature outside is 80 or over it does not cools off if the car is park or going at a very low speed.

I want to be able to do some of the small repairs for this used vehicle that i just purchased.

i am thinking that the sensor need to be replace .

The AC at times works for about 1 to 2 minutes, then it completely stops working and only hot air comes out.

it acts just like a bad power booster but it has been replaced twice. pedal stops with plenty of room left but car still moves a bit before stopping.

I've had some trouble with the AC Compressor locking up, and was told by the mechanic that I would likely have to replace this in the future. This is an expensive repair (close to $1000). I am somewhat handy when it comes to working on vehicles, and I have the available time. I need some GOOD instructions on replacing the AC Compressor on my 02' Montero Sport. Anyone ever done one?

I recently had valve cover gaskets replaced on my vehicle . When I got ready to get my vehicle back , the mechanic informed me that my power steering pump was leaking . I saw the fluid backing backing up out of the pump. Every time I turned the wheel fluid came back out of the top of the pump . I feel like he did something wrong . What could have caused this and how do I know it's the pump and not something else ?

cannot keep fluid in reseroir. tube from reservoir has been replacesd seems to fit tight no visible leak from there.other sources of leak,internaly from pump?

My check engine light keeps coming on so I had a code readout and the code was P0450. A few months ago I had some hack replace my gas tank because it was leaking and now the truck, 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport, has the check engine light on. Also when I stop for gas and remove the cap, gas pressure makes a hissing noise. The truck seems to be running fine though. I was just hoping to get some input on the situation, oh yeah and the gas cap has a good seal.

i need to get my clutch fixed. 4x4 - v-6

When I removed the cam pulley on the right side of the motor, cylinder number one side, the cam came off of tdc and is now either one way or the other of tdc. My question is, have I done any possible damage to the pistons by moving the valves via the cam without moving the crank in the same fashion? On a side note, can you push the cam seal on the same side in too far? I think the seal started on a little lopsided and I pushed it on with a PVC pipe but it looks like it may be in too far. Should I pull it back out and get another one or will it be ok?

I want to change oil for the first time on my 2003 Montero Sport 4x4. Just wondering, if the drain plug in the front under the engine is the gear oil. Is the oil pan plug back by the passenger side door the correct one to change the engine crankcase oil?

Can platinum spark plugs be used instead of iridium tipped spark plugs?

I changed the spark plugs and valve cover gaskets on my montero sport and it will not start up again. The interior gets power but the engine will not turn over. I don't know where to start looking because I am not sure what step I could have missed putting the intake back on.

check engine light soon came on. disconneted neg.bat.cable. light off. came on again 800 mi.took to Advance. No codes came up while light was off. Thoought I would start with changing the oil & filter before I plunked down money with a "real mechanic"Changed 3500mi.ago.So where is oil filter?other ideas??

i juist changed both sensoars on exhaust. the engine light came back on and they said it was a fuse or something befour it was getting to the sensor. and the cruze control light stays on every time i start the engine now does that have something to do with it.
