What to Know About 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mitsubishi Cordia, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Cordia. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Cordia maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mitsubishi, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Cordia running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mitsubishi Cordia

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Cordia. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Cordia may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Cordia battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Cordia stranded. Your Mitsubishi Cordia could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia running newer, longer. See Mitsubishi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Cordia in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia? We can help with that, too!

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mitsubishi Cordia's steering system require regular maintenance.

1985 Mitsubishi Cordia Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia. Get answers to common Mitsubishi Cordia maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mitsubishi Cordia? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Mitsubishi Cordia need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mitsubishi Cordia engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mitsubishi? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mitsubishi Cordia, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
