2001 Mitsubishi Montero XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


I absolutely LOVE my Montero. It has been the best car I've ever owned. It does awesome in the snow and ice and it climbs like a goat! I wouldn't be afraid to take it anywhere. We also own a Dodge 4WD and a Toyota 4WD but for winter driving in the columbia gorge, I always use the Montero. I feel very protected and safe in it. I have replaced the right hub assembly twice in it and also the computer board in the dash (temp gauge said it was overheating but it really wasn't). Even with those little problems, I still wouldn't trade it for any other SUV, it's THAT good!

Hi, I have a 2001 Montero that is doing the exact same thing. I have 86,000 miles on mine. Sometimes within seconds of starting it the dash tells me the engine is hotter than hades. Other times the temp gage is completely normal. I know its not overheating, and I was wondering what you repaired in yours to fix this problem? Just the computer board in the dash? Thanks Michael
