1988 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 1988 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1988 Mitsubishi Cordia? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mitsubishi recommends changing your 1988 Cordia’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cordia in the above table. Outside of Mitsubishi-recommended oil change intervals, your Cordia may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mitsubishi Cordia. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1988 Mitsubishi Cordia Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mitsubishi Cordia? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mitsubishi Cordia engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
