1988 Mitsubishi Montero Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mitsubishi Montero Run Better

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, especially if you want your 1988 Mitsubishi Montero’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Montero’s power on the road. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Mitsubishi for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Montero’s long-term engine performance.

Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1988 Mitsubishi Montero. One option 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Montero. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Montero. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Montero's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

Questions About 1988 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Montero? 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 stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
