Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Mitsubishi Montero? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mitsubishi recommends having your 1992 Mitsubishi Montero’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mitsubishi-recommended oil change intervals, your Montero may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mitsubishi Montero. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Mitsubishi Montero

  • What can low oil do to my Mitsubishi Montero engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Montero’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi Montero oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Montero exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
