Your Guide to 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Mitsubishi Montero to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1999 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Montero perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 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 1999 Mitsubishi Montero and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Montero's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mitsubishi Montero battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Montero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mitsubishi Montero won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 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 1999 Montero. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1999 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.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Mitsubishi Montero suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mitsubishi Montero's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mitsubishi Montero maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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.

  • 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 does my Mitsubishi Montero need high mileage oil? If your Mitsubishi Montero has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Mitsubishi dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Mitsubishi Montero to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
