How Often to Change 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2000 Montero’s oil should be changed according to Mitsubishi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mitsubishi-recommended oil change intervals, your Montero may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mitsubishi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mitsubishi Montero. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2000 Mitsubishi Montero?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2000 Mitsubishi Montero motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mitsubishi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2000 Mitsubishi Montero vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Montero’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Montero by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2000 Mitsubishi Montero

  • What can low oil do to my Mitsubishi Montero engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Montero’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mitsubishi Montero oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Montero exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
