Your 2005 Montero’s oil should be changed according to Mitsubishi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Montero in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Montero may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mitsubishi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Mitsubishi Montero

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mitsubishi Montero? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mitsubishi Montero engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi Montero oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Montero exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
