    Suspension Question (KYB Gas-A-Just)

    Burnt Rubber Smell Under Load

    Hi All, I've been trying to diagnose a strange smell on my 2003 Monty Limited. I usually smell it in the cabin with the drivers window down or the sunroof open, and am accelerating up a hill. Picture going on an uphill on ramp to a freeway. It also manifests itself when going up a long...

    I know there are many existing threads on the topic of shocks already, but hopefully this community will indulge me one more. I have a 2003 Monty Limited. I put 265/75 BFG KO2's on it a awhile ago, and they're great. Since putting them on I've been using it more off road and the shocks are...

    Running out of gas....with gas still in the tank

    Hi all, I think I may have a dieing fuel pump on my 2003 Limited, but I figured I would consult the hive-mind here before buying parts. Problem: Driving along and the engine starts to lose power, and die, and then come alive again. It does this for about 1 min, and then dies completely. I...

    How To: Adding a Cabin Filter to Gen III Montero

    For some as yet unknown reason Mitsubishi Motors decided not to equip US bound Gen III Monteros with a cabin filter, even though the Heater/Fan Box is designed to accept one. Instead they just left the blanking plate in sealing it off. I like to keep the dust out when I'm offroading so I...

    Montero Model Year/Generation Reference?

    In my quest for a new off-roader, I've been looking very closely at the Montero's. Problem is there really isn't a great single reference to what all the differences are between the years, and generations as far as US Spec Models are concerned. With that in mind I'd like your help in...
