1985 Mitsubishi Montero Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Mitsubishi Montero

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 Mitsubishi Montero in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Montero’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Mitsubishi's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Montero’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Mitsubishi Montero

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mitsubishi Montero engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Montero. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Montero's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Montero: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1985 Mitsubishi Monteros

  • When should Mitsubishi Montero spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Mitsubishi Montero mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mitsubishi Montero engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
