We have a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero limited non-sport that has 175k miles and in our state we have yearly emissions tests. Our mechanic checked out the car after engine light came on. There are three issues with the truck and I need to know if its worth fixing or to trade it in toward a new vehicle.
- The car has a pretty serious oil leak or its burning oil. After about 1000 miles we have to put in 3 quarts of oil.
- There is a vacuum leak somewhere that is causing an error code P0131 to fire. Something about too much lean
- Error code P0431 fires and the catalytic converter is shot. Not a sensor but the full deal.
So my question is, in your opinion what would it cost to fix these issues or is it worth it to fix these issues?
