January 24th, 2024 by

Hey Mitsubishi family! Let’s get those engines roaring and suspensions soaring with some maintenance tips curated for your Mitsubishi! From zippy Outlanders to trusty Lancers, these routine checks will keep your car running smoothly and safely for miles to come.

Oil Change Champ:

It’s generally recommended that for every 3,000-5,000 miles you drive, your Mitsubishi is in need of a fresh oil change. Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for the specific oil type and viscosity for your model. Remember, clean oil is the lifeblood of your engine! Pro Tip: Mitsubishi offers a handy online service reminder tool. Sign up and never miss an oil change again!

Tire Pressure Masters:

Pump it Up!: Don’t let your tires become sad and deflated! Check your tire pressure (including the spare) at least once a month with a reliable gauge. The recommended pounds per square inch (PSI) for your specific Mitsubishi model is usually listed on a sticker inside the driver’s door jamb.

Tread Alert: Don’t wait for bald spots! Use the penny test – insert Lincoln’s head, if the top of his hair disappears, it’s time for new tires. Remember, good tread is crucial for safe stopping and driving when it’s slick out when it’s raining and snowing.

Coolant Crew: Keep your Mitsubishi engine cool with regular coolant checks. Look for discoloration or low levels, and top off or replace as needed. Refer to your owner’s manual for the recommended coolant type and mixture ratio.

Brake Bleeders: Don’t let your brakes become squeaky surprises! Get your brake fluid flushed and replaced according to your Mitsubishi maintenance schedule. This ensures optimal stopping power and keeps your brakes happy and functioning properly.

Air Filter Aficionados: A clean air filter is like a deep breath of fresh air for your Mitsubishi engine. Replace it every 12,000-15,000 miles or as recommended in your owner’s manual.

Wiper Warriors: Rain or shine, good wipers are your best friends on the road for wiping away ice melt and salt, pollen, and rain droplets of course! Replace them when they streak or leave smears. Don’t get caught in a downpour with blurry vision!

Consult your manual: As a general rule of thumb for all specific car-related questions, refer to your owner’s manual such as specific maintenance schedules, recommended fluids and parts, and any additional tips for your model.
