When to Change 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mitsubishi Outlander’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”

Mitsubishi recommends changing your 2013 Outlander’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Outlander may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mitsubishi Outlander. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mitsubishi Outlander engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mitsubishi Outlander engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mitsubishi oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Outlander exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
