1998 Mitsubishi Montero Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mitsubishi Montero Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1998 Mitsubishi Montero. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Montero. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mitsubishi, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Montero’s engine running smoother, longer.

Mitsubishi Montero Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Mitsubishi Montero. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Montero. 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Montero's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1998 Mitsubishi Monteros

  • When should Mitsubishi Montero spark plugs be replaced? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Montero? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mitsubishi Montero engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
