1998 Mitsubishi Montero Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mitsubishi's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mitsubishi Montero? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Montero’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Montero's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Montero’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mitsubishi. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
