Where is the best place to buy a new one? Is it a relatively simple process?

Mine comes on right away at cold startup. This little lady does not seem to want to get back on the road...

Well this question seems to be one of the great Montero mysteries. 40 views and no ideas. Not complaining. I don't blame you. I have no idea either. I've been combing Google with no luck at all.

Just figured I'd bump one last time in case one of you guru's hadn't seen this yet, before I go through the stealorship. They can "special order" it for $40. Could be worse, but I bet the damn part costs 50 cents to make.

I know this is risky business, but I'm really temped to just bypass it...

Hey Mr. Ray, your A/T Temp light in the dash comes on as soon as you start your engine??? Is that right?

I use www.mitsubishiparts.net for all of my OEM replacement parts. They are located in Centralia, WA. Or at least that is where parts are always shipped to me from.

looking at that website I found two part numbers you should look into.

Thanks for that info, Jay. I'll check those out. Yeah, the light comes on immediately on a cold start. So at least we know its not because its actually hot, which is certainly the lesser of 2 evils. Would rather have a false positive than a missed positive.

AutoMater makes a trans fluid temp sensor with gauge (CW warning light) and adapter if you want to go that route.

At one time I thought I'd install this so I got the adapter which I modified on a lathe to extend the sensor tip.

It's yours for free if you want it.

Thanks very much for the generosity, PCC! I'll look into that product. Might be overkill for what I use the Monty for but never hurts to be safe.

Not sure on the part number but it is easy to change unless your truck is all corroded stuck together. Unlike my rust free 91 southern truck. Well maybe a small amount do surface rust on the horn you can see through the grill.

All you do to change the sensor is unplug it, unscrew it, screw in new one , and plug back up. I did this 10years ago or so and no problems since.


I just want to tell you both good luck, and we're all counting on you.
