Engine Performance problem
1998 Mitsubishi Montero 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 126000 miles
Intermittent problems starting. Battery was replaced, cables checked by mechanic and new ends put on, ignition switch replaced.
No engine response when you turn the key, lights radio and heater turn on. Tried starting in neutral - no different. Seems like we open the hood look around check cables and slam the hood and it will start when you try it again.
We have a check engine light on - mechanic said this was not related to the problem but alerting us about something to do with transmission (sorry cant remember exactly but it didn't seem imperative).
Problem occurs weeks apart and sometimes two or three times in one day.
Our mechanic seems clueless since it always starts when he sees it.
Related or unrelated we are not able to get the 4WD to engage.
have the same problem?
