Top 10 Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Mitsubishi Running Smoothly

Top 10 Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Mitsubishi Running Smoothly

At Charlottetown Mitsubishi in Prince Edward Island, we understand that your Mitsubishi is a vital component of your daily life. Ensuring your vehicle is well-maintained enhances your driving experience and significantly extends the life of your Mitsubishi. 


Consult Your Owner’s Manual


Your Mitsubishi’s owner’s manual is an invaluable resource, offering specific information tailored to your model. It covers everything from the type of oil best suited for your engine to the ideal tire pressure for optimal performance. Consistently referring to this manual can help maintain your Mitsubishi’s health and even improve its longevity. 


Regular Vehicle Inspections


Performing routine self-inspections can be pivotal in catching issues early, preventing minor concerns from becoming major headaches. Using your Mitsubishi’s manual as a guide, regularly examine fluid levels, brake conditions, and battery health. 


Tire Maintenance

Correct tire pressure is crucial not only for your safety but also for maintaining your Mitsubishi’s fuel efficiency. Regularly checking the tire pressure with a gauge ensures optimal performance. Equally important is assessing tire tread depth, as uneven wear may indicate the need for tire rotation or alignment, maintaining stability and safety on the road.


Engine Oil Checks

Engine oil plays a key part in your Mitsubishi’s performance by reducing friction and preventing overheating. Regularly checking the oil level and colour is a quick way to gauge your engine's health. Remember, a change in oil colour to a darker shade is a clear sign that your Mitsubishi is due for an oil change, a simple task that significantly contributes to your vehicle's longevity.


Monitor Engine Coolant


Maintaining the correct level of engine coolant ensures your Mitsubishi’s engine runs at the optimal temperature. Regularly check the coolant levels and stay alert for any signs of leaks. If your vehicle loses coolant too quickly, it could indicate a more critical issue that requires immediate attention at Charlottetown Mitsubishi’s Service Centre.


Engine Air Filter Inspection


A clean air filter in your engine is crucial for maintaining good air quality inside your engine. It ensures that your engine is not clogged with debris, which can hinder performance. If you find the filter clogged or dirty, replacing it’s a simple yet effective way to improve your Mitsubishi’s efficiency and engine life.


Fuel Usage


Using the correct octane fuel as recommended for your Mitsubishi helps in maintaining engine health and efficiency. Lower octane fuels can cause engine knocking and reduce overall performance, potentially leading to long-term damage. Sticking to the right fuel keeps your engine running smoothly and efficiently.


Light Bulb Functionality


Ensuring all lights on your Mitsubishi are functioning is vital for safety. Regularly inspect headlights, taillights, and brake lights, replacing any bulbs that are no longer working. This ensures your visibility on the road and helps communicate effectively with other drivers, reducing the risk of accidents.


Windshield Wiper Condition


Good visibility is key to safe driving. Regularly check your windshield wipers for signs of wear and ensure they’re functioning correctly. If they aren’t clearing the windshield effectively or leaving streaks, it's time for a replacement. Our Parts Centre at Charlottetown Mitsubishi offers a range of high-quality wiper blades suitable for your vehicle.


Maintenance Record Keeping


Keeping a detailed record of all maintenance tasks, whether performed at home or by our service team, is crucial. This record helps you track when routine checks and services are due, ensuring that your Mitsubishi is always in top condition. Additionally, a well-documented service history can enhance the resale value of your vehicle.


Keep Your Mitsubishi Running Smoothly


Your Mitsubishi is a significant investment and deserves the best care for a safe and enjoyable driving experience. By sticking to these top 10 tips, you can ensure that your Mitsubishi remains reliable, efficient, and enjoyable on the roads of Charlottetown.
