How Often to Get 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Oil Changes

Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2011 Outlander’s oil should be changed according to Mitsubishi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mitsubishi-recommended oil change intervals, your Outlander may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mitsubishi Outlander. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mitsubishi Outlander motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mitsubishi Outlander engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Mitsubishi Outlander oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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.
