1986 Mitsubishi Montero Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mitsubishi Montero Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1986 Mitsubishi Montero’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Montero. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mitsubishi, you invest in your Montero's long-term health and engine performance.

Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mitsubishi Montero engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in 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. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1986 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Mitsubishi Montero spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Mitsubishi Montero mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mitsubishi Montero. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • 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.
