The engine temperature gage reads hot...coolant
The gauge on the dash is not accurate at all, you can get a obd live data monitor or you can test the coolant with the engine running and use a reliable thermometer, ( you take the cap off the radiator and run the engine till it gets hot. You also need to check and see if the thermostat is stuck closed.

Mitsubishi montero sport 2002 will not start
Back in the old day,s you could take the battery cable off with the vehicle running - 60's . begining in the 70's they started using transistors in the vehicle electronics . A voltage spike could short out a PCM - engine computer etc.... If you want to test a alternator take it to a qualified repair shop or take it off the vehicle an have a parts store bench test it .
Did you test for B+ voltage at the connections on the alternator ? Without B+ at the right connections it won't charge .

2002 montero high teamperature no leak or any thing
Could be several issues:
1. The radiator is blocked internally or externally with road and insect debris.
2. The radiator fan may not be working. There's a control sensor on the bottom of the radiator that controls a relay that drives the fan. Fan motors can seize. Can you easily rotate the fan?
3. MIGHT be a head gasket on the way out. Have your garage do a compression and leak down test.

Where is the ac port located to add freon
On a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero LTD, the a/c charging port is between the battery and the windshield. It is the port that has a cap labeled with an "L
" (Low Side)
When the a/c is on, "L" (Low Side)
while the "H" (High Side) gets hot.
Make sure you use the Low Side (cold)
for adding Freon.
(note: over the counter freon kits should not fit the High Side port anyways)

I have replaced my brake pads. Had the discs machined and there are no oil leaks yet my pedal almost touches the floor if I dont pump it. what are the likely problems.
the most likely problem here is a faulty master cylinder . There is no residual pressure in the disc brakes lines but if you have rear drum brakes there is residual pressure here counteracted by the return springs holding the shoes in the cylinders.. Which ever you have with the pedal going to the floor but being able to be pumped up is an indication of air still in the lines or leaking piston rubbers in the master cylinder
Accumulator in a brake system (money from suckers) and $3500 to have it fixed (money from suckers). Find yourself an accredited brake and clutch shop and get a second opinion and check the results with a second quote Then you may be on the right track . I would recommend that you have another go at bleeding the system starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest using the help of a friend . I would not be surprised that after getting some air out that the brakes suddenly work properly.

Changing spark plugs
Spark plugs look like this:
They are screwed into the engine head, and each has a wire (approx. 7-8mm or .25in) attached to the top of it. A dedicated spark plug wrench or socket is needed for removal of the plug after the wire has been disconnected from it.
