what is wrong with my 2002 Monterey sport AWD

Asked by Feb 24, 2017 at 11:49 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport XLS 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I ran into a signal pole with my Montero sport. The front drivers and
passenger wheels till inward now and loud squeezing noise comes from
underneath of vehicle. I don't know what to look for to identify the problem.
What do I look for and how do I fix the problem? Your advice is appreciated

2002? It is likely totaled out if the wheels are out of alignment. The engines pulleys or belts may be rubbing on something. I sure wouldn't try to drive it until someone with experience evaluates it.

So you damaged the front end of the vehicle. If you don't know what to look for, it's best to have someone who can. Telling you over the internet isn't going to help much. It sounds pretty serious to me. You most likely bent some suspension/steering components. Such as a control arms, steering rack, etc. It is not safe to drive from what you are describing, with the load squeaking noise. You could have damaged some engine components, such as a cooling fan and of course body panels. So get the vehicle into a shop ASAP so they can get it on a lift to inspect the damage. You'll be doing an alignment after repairs.
