1985 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 1985 Cordia’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Cordia may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mitsubishi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mitsubishi Cordia. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Mitsubishi Cordia Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mitsubishi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Cordia’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Mitsubishi Cordia

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mitsubishi Cordia? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mitsubishi Cordia engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi Cordia oil at home? 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
