What to Know About 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Mitsubishi Montero, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Montero. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Montero maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mitsubishi, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Montero running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2001 Mitsubishi Montero problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mitsubishi Montero

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Montero’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mitsubishi Montero battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Montero) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mitsubishi Montero could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero engine. See Mitsubishi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2001 Montero in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero.

Maintaining your Mitsubishi Montero steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Mitsubishi Montero steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Mitsubishi Montero's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mitsubishi Montero maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mitsubishi Montero’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mitsubishi Montero? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2001 Montero is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Mitsubishi Montero to 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
