I just bought this montero for $2000, I think I got a good deal, the only issue so far is that the fan does not blow at all hot or cold, I do hear the ac coming on when I turn the fan/ac on but it looks like the blower just wont turn on.
I checked under the hood, I switched the relay from the light to test in fan relay and nothing, I replaced 1 blown fuse #25 (does not say what its for, theres 2 #25's together next to 2 relays) that is located on the outside next to fuse box, nothing...I have not checked the inside fuses yet my tester is too bulky and I have to take out 1 by 1 and there is like 20+ fuses down there.
do you guys have a diagram of the fuse box on the inside of car? its missing the cover, it would really help.
also if the fuses turn out not to be the problem any way to test the blower to make sure its not burned out? and where is it located? or what do you recommend i check next?
I am also having an idleling isue at stop signs and red lights, it just idles rpm drops and shuts off(but most of the day is running smooth no problems or vibrations, I can stop at redlights and leave the car running), engine light came on last night, took it to autozone they said ignition missfire or piston misfire, they said that ment spark plugs or wires, so that is what I am doing tomorrow, I bought spark plugs(ngk platinum), wires(duralast, which name brand wires+plugs do you recommend for this truck?), air filter, 20-50 oil(reg valvoline high milage), oil filter (fram i think?), intake gasket, the mechanic is going to install these for $100, is this a good deal?
I am in houston tx, he made a big deal about removing the upper intake to remove spark plugs...I think i can do that my self i dont know where the fuel filter is located, cant find a manual at autozone for that car.. everything else I bought I can do, but fuel filter sounds likes hard..what do you guys say?
I'm used to a honda accord, this sparkplug cover thing got me little upset :)
I found this picture just now, on how to remove the top intake cover thing....
have the same problem?
