Mitsubishi Montero & Montero Sport This sport utility vehicle offers more size than the other Mitsubishi SUVs, but manages to keep a sporty look and comfortable feel, unlike many larger SUVs.

Talking Saving Ole Faithful

I have been the sole owner of a 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. It has well over 260000 miles, odometer stopped at about 226000, and wakes up every so often. I've kept it running since I got it with 2 miles fresh off the lot, only replacing alternator, battery, and starter, all else is original. Great Vehicle, and I would like to save it.......(Tear Drop!!!!)

The problem I'm having is that with a new battery, battery cables, alternator, and starter, it wont start. I can hear the starter "humming"/"spinning", but the engine will not turn over. I am hoping that it is something relative simple like a relay/fuse or something. I plan on taking it in for a diagnostics check to tell me """"EVERYTHING""""That is work with it, but if anyone wishes to chime in, all help is very much welcomed! HELP!!!!!!

Change the starter, it is not engaging the flywheel teeth.

Get a short wire and try shorting the starter solenoid contacts and see if that will engage it. I had a vehicle with that exact same problem, and that was a temporary fix. Then if it works you know you'll need a new solenoid. Sounds like a great vehicle you've got yourself there; got to keep her going...
