Oil Changes for 1987 Mitsubishi Cordia

How Often to Change 1987 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Mitsubishi Cordia? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 changing your 1987 Cordia’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cordia may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mitsubishi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Mitsubishi Cordia

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mitsubishi Cordia? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
