1983 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Mitsubishi recommends having your 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Cordia may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mitsubishi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mitsubishi Cordia. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mitsubishi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1983 Mitsubishi Cordia vehicles.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Cordia's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Cordia by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1983 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mitsubishi Cordia? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Cordia’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Cordia exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
