What Does Your Mitsubishi Montero Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Mitsubishi Montero transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Mitsubishi Montero transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Montero at all.

2001 Mitsubishi Montero Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mitsubishi? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mitsubishi tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Montero transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mitsubishi Montero transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mitsubishi. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
