1985 Mitsubishi Montero Oil Change Service

When to Change 1985 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mitsubishi Montero’s oil changed? Turn to 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 having your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Montero may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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, 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 Montero. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Mitsubishi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1985 Montero. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero

  • Should I check my Mitsubishi Montero motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mitsubishi Montero engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi Montero oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Montero exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
