Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges.

Overview of Essential Mitsubishi Cordia Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia. 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Cordia battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mitsubishi Cordia won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia running newer, longer. See Mitsubishi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Cordia in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mitsubishi Cordia can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mitsubishi Cordia steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Mitsubishi Cordia's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Mitsubishi Cordia maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mitsubishi Cordia cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mitsubishi Cordia? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Mitsubishi Cordia. Get answers to common Mitsubishi Cordia maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Mitsubishi Cordia alignment checked? You know your Mitsubishi Cordia better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Mitsubishi Cordia to high mileage oil? If your Mitsubishi Cordia has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Mitsubishi dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mitsubishi Cordia in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
