Remember all that flushing of the rad I did? Well like 11-12 flushes and it was still pretty rusty. Lent the truck to my buddy for the weekend and he hooked it up to the rad cleaning machine at work.

The aftermath is some squeaky clean coolant!

He also hooked it up to the intake service machine to clean up the likely caked up valves.

Honestly I have noticed the truck runs smoother and the throttle is more responsive.

With all that done, I would say that the maintenance is entirely up to date!

Please enjoy this picture of how glossy the Sonax is still holding up:

The actuator in the driver's door is the master and usually the first to wear out since it's used the most. As noted above, the rubber stops inside the actuator come apart over time and cause your problem. Someone recently posted on the FB Montero page that they had found an aftermarket replacement for $20, which is probably worth doing since it's an easy component to replace.

There's a rubber stopper inside the actuator that gets worn.  What's happening is that the mechanism is going "too far" and bounces back to locked position.  Time for new actuator(s) (i believe it's the passenger side that's most likely to be worn for some reason) or open them up and rebuild the bumper.

Start with checking if the actuator in the rear (cargo) door is functioning properly. Sticky handle not returning down or other issues.
Mine is to the point the key works in the drivers door but I need to cycle it 3 times to unlock the other doors., they go up a little each time.
Seems the Pax door does not signal the control unit or something, been a long time since I tried it. The key will not open the other doors from the pax side.

My remote did not like being in my pocket when I seem to have gone swimming out of my canoe a decade ago so I can not offer allot on it. but,
When using your remote, watch all actuators. might be one door is draggy such that it does not signal the control unit properly. They all must freely unlock it's door or an error happens.

Recently the door locks started acting weird on the Montero.  Everytime I unlock the doors with either the key fob or the door switch it locks again right away.  I know the system is setup if you unlock it with your key fob and the door is not opened in 30 secs the doors relock.  To me it is acting like the system clock for that safety feature is not working as intended.  Anyone every have this issue before?  I am thinking the likely fix is to buy an aftermarket system, I think there is a link on here for a pretty cheap and easy on to install.  Maybe buy a remote start while I am at it...

I haven't encountered that problem myself but I remember that this guy has been recommended for repair service in the past - and even is a Montero owner himself.  .     

There are also replacement OE style tachs on yoycart pretty inexpensively.     

Good luck and let us know what you end up doing!
Gen 2 Montero / 96 SR tach help

My tach stays stuck at about 3000rpm when the engine is running. As soon as it starts it jumps up and stays there. Otherwise it sits on the peg like it is supposed to do.  If you poke the gas it will move about 200rpm . I've pounded on the dash to no avail. I thought I read something about a resistor somewhere. Any guidance? Thanks!

I think the center diff was not locking in the Lc position at first.  Everything seems to be working now.  I know another guy around here who had his not locking as well, he did some digging and said if they sit for a while there can be some oil sludge that forms causing the diff to not lock, my rig was in storage for 10 years before I bought it.  After you try it a few times it works.  I am guessing that was my problem.
