Engine Cooling problem
1990 Mitsubishi Montero 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 178000 miles
The vehicle smokes when started, and at idle, not so much when driving. I am losing some oil, and have to add a little here and there. I was parked at idle on an incline and the vehicle temp gauge started going up, it only appears to do this on incline. The temp stays fine at level and when driving. No oil in coolant, or coolant in oil. I have had the head gasket and valves redone in the past and it seemed not long after that the vehicle started over heating again and had coolant pushed up in the coolant reserve tank. So I replaced radiator, radiator cap, thermostat and that seemed to fix the problem for a long while. But now the smoke, temp rise on incline, and small loss of oil. I broke engine down to replace water pump and am installing new fan clutch. Whats going on?
have the same problem?
