1986 Mitsubishi Montero Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1986 Mitsubishi Montero Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Mitsubishi Montero radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Mitsubishi recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Common Mitsubishi Montero Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Mitsubishi radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Mitsubishi? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Mitsubishi Montero radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Mitsubishi Montero radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
