1991 Mitsubishi Montero LS 3.0L naturally aspirated from North America
Good car, I have faith in it
I bought it with a couple of busted piston rings, knowing I'd have to rebuild the engine. Had the engine rebuilt. But one of the hydraulic lifters seems to be making a ticking annoying sound. Hence the reason I chose the straight face. That's pretty much my main concern. Either it's clogged or it's not seating the right way. I will add a lifter cleaner, then go ahead and drain the oil and see if that goes away. If not, I am taking it back to my mechanic to address the issue.
Interior headliner lights don't work.
I have a brake light that I might have to replace both sockets.
It has like an old metal scent to the interior.
The body has zero rust.
I do need to replace the lower control arm bushings, so I can get a good alignment.
Overall it runs fine. Just wish I had more money to restore it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
