When to Change 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Mitsubishi Montero? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mitsubishi recommends having your 1999 Mitsubishi Montero’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Montero in the above table. Your Montero may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mitsubishi if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mitsubishi Montero. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1999 Mitsubishi Montero Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mitsubishi Montero motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Montero’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Montero spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
