When it comes to your Mitsubishi Montero, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero.

There's no need to guess when it's time to get Montero maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1989 Mitsubishi Montero maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mitsubishi themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Montero running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Mitsubishi Montero problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mitsubishi Montero Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Mitsubishi Montero and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Montero. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Mitsubishi Montero. In general, car batteries only last 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Montero stranded. Your Mitsubishi Montero won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Mitsubishi Montero running newer, longer.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mitsubishi Montero? You know your Mitsubishi Montero better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Mitsubishi Montero? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mitsubishi Montero engines.
  • Can Mitsubishi dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mitsubishi Montero, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
