2000 mitsubishi montero sport 3.o v6 2wheel drive.
I need to replace my valve cover gaskets. I KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE VALVE COVER AND DO THE GASKETS. I do not know how to remove everything in my way, and what to remove. i do not want to take off anything that i do not have to. Does anyone know how to and can give me a detailed description on how to?

Recently with in the last five months I have changed the altenator 4 times last one was two weeks ago and oil from the front cam seal is leaking on the altenator.I have also changed the battery twice. was wondering if this is that hard of a job that i can do myself or if there are any special tools needed for the job. ir if its not that exspensive let the profesonal do it I do have faith in my ability.

Our 2003 Montero Sport sputters once the engine gets warm and will continue to do this every couple of minutes, its as if you are running over the rumble strips on the side of the highway. We have changed the catalytic convertors and also put new plugs and wires on the vehicle but it didn't get rid of the problem. Wanted to know if someone had a better clue on what to possibly check. This things were changed after the vehicle went to the dealer and was checked by their computer. Could this possibly be the mass air flow sensor, or the O2 sensor?

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.

can a non mechanic remove a catalytic converter. And how do you do it?

What are the parts needed for a tune up

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.

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?
