How Often to Change 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2018 Outlander’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mitsubishi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mitsubishi Outlander. Mitsubishi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2018 Outlander. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Outlander’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Outlander by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

  • 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, generate excess heat, 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 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mitsubishi exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
