Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

  • What can low oil do to my Mitsubishi Outlander Sport engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi Outlander Sport spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
