1988 Mitsubishi Montero Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mitsubishi? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mitsubishi? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Montero towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Montero's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Mitsubishi Montero transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mitsubishi's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
