1996 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Mitsubishi Montero Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1996 Mitsubishi Montero in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Montero’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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.

Engine Tune-Up for Mitsubishi Montero

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mitsubishi Montero engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Montero. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Montero’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Montero: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1996 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Mitsubishi Montero spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mitsubishi’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Mitsubishi Montero mean? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Montero engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
