    I just got my Montero Sport GLX 2.5 Non-VGT AT vehicle. There are a lot of positive sides but one negative side is that it seems to lose power when negotiating an uphill specially if your coming from a full stop. It sometimes feel that it would die on me.

    Anyone ever experience this before? Appreciate sharing your experience.

    Ever tried a Ford Ranger Trekker? Kahit fully loaded ako ng pasahero sa loob at upon din ng gamit yung bed parang walang karga pag umaakyat ako ng Baguio, umo-overtake pa kamo, lalo na pag nag engage yung turbo talagang walang sasantohin. Lasenggero ng lang sa diesel hehehe!

    You really HAVE to cool down the engine for 2 mins before completely turning it off as to prevent your turbo from being damaged and having premature wear and tear. I do this with my monty everytime i use it.

    i think its not a negative side and lose of power, your vehicle model is really not that powerful for an AT. you should have bought instead the M/T model so you will have more ease in negotiating uphills at lower gear

    If you have a problem with uphills, chances are that you're simply using the wrong gear.

    Our 1991 Mitsubishi L200 with the same 4D56 engine but no VGT nor turbo (ergo, makes only 70 bhp and probably 50 whp) has no problem with steep inclines, as long as you keep it in first gear.

    The dreaded turbo lag on a non-vgt. Medyo bitin talaga yan kung nasa gitna ka na ng uphill from a full stop kaya mainam na i-lagay mo yung matic shifter sa lowest gear limit then buwelo para pag umabot ka sa paahon eh nasa tamang rpm range yung engine.


    At what rpm ba nag eengage ang turbo ng non-vgt?

    Uy a specific thread for non- vgt, like!

    Just got mine last Thursday, Savannah white, 2013 GLX AT. I will be writing my FR once I use it on slex or nlex.

    First thing to do is activate the GPS. I already tried taking off the HU cover & hindi naman pala mahirap, medyo ingat lang sa pagsungkit. Problema lang is yung pagkopya ng software from other sd, then update sa ver 2.3.

    Sino na sa inyo nakapag-activate ng gps? Pakopya naman?
