Here’s Why 1996 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mitsubishi Montero to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Montero has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Montero maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero!

Mitsubishi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Montero running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Mitsubishi Montero problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Montero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Montero stranded. Your Mitsubishi Montero won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero running newer, longer. See Mitsubishi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Montero in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero.

Routine upkeep for your Mitsubishi Montero suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Mitsubishi Montero steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Mitsubishi Montero's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Mitsubishi Montero maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mitsubishi Montero’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Mitsubishi Montero radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Mitsubishi Montero maintenance.

1996 Mitsubishi Montero Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero. Get answers to common Mitsubishi Montero maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 switch my Mitsubishi Montero to high mileage oil? 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.
  •  Why are my Mitsubishi dashboard lights on? 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
