Your Guide to 1987 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mitsubishi Montero to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Montero, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Mitsubishi Montero!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mitsubishi themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Montero's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1987 Mitsubishi Montero problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mitsubishi Montero Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Mitsubishi Montero and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Montero's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1987 Mitsubishi Montero be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Montero may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Montero battery. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mitsubishi Montero could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Mitsubishi Montero running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Montero. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Mitsubishi Montero? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mitsubishi Montero can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Mitsubishi Montero suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mitsubishi Montero's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Mitsubishi Montero services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
