What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1998 Mitsubishi Montero?

Here’s Why 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mitsubishi Montero to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Montero could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Montero, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Montero's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Mitsubishi Montero problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1998 Mitsubishi Montero for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Could your 1998 Mitsubishi Montero be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Montero battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Montero stranded. Your Mitsubishi Montero won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Mitsubishi Montero running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Montero. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Mitsubishi Montero.

Routine upkeep for your Mitsubishi Montero suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Mitsubishi Montero steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Mitsubishi Montero's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mitsubishi Montero maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mitsubishi Montero cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mitsubishi Montero? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Mitsubishi Montero maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
