    Best practices for removing trans pan Gen 2-2.5 Montero?

    Removed all the bolts including theb3 hidden by the cross member and yoke. Not a whole lot of area(s) where you can get a putty knife between the pan and trans to split the two.

    Another valve seal question -smog due

    Yep, I know there are a lot of threads on replacing the seals but I'm under a time crunch. I've known that the time would come that I'd need to do this, but I just failed the visual inspection part of smog since the montero had smoke come out of the tail pipe after the tech rev'd it then let...

    Gen 2.5 fabricating transmission skid

    Wondering if the tabs that the engine skid plate mounts to at the rear of the plate are strong to mount a skid to, or should I incorporate a lip to go forward using the cross member for additional strength and use the tabs to keep it in place? The pattern I laid out would bridge the space...

    I looked around the Mitsubishi forum but didn't see an answer. When replacing the coolant it would seem that about 35-40% stays in the block. Do folks usually pull the engine coolant drain plugs to empty the block (if so where are they located-looked in FSM but didn't see them callout), if not...
