How often should I service my 1985 Mitsubishi Montero?
You want your Mitsubishi Montero to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Montero maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mitsubishi, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Montero perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1985 Mitsubishi Montero problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Montero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mitsubishi Montero battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Montero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mitsubishi Montero won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero engine. See Mitsubishi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Montero in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
