Why Should You Get Your Vehicle's Oil Changed?
Engine oil is an essential factor for your vehicle's engine. It helps keep engine components working smoothly together, it helps draw heat away from the combustion chamber and prevent varnishes and carbon from accumulating in your engine. Needless to say, engine oil is a vital component of your engine because, without it, it's likely to overheat and breakdown prematurely.
When Should You Get Your Mitsubishi Oil Changed?
We recommend you get your oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles to make sure your engine is at optimum performance. Factors like your driving style and weather conditions affect how frequently you should get your oil serviced. For example, your Mitsubishi should have its oil changed more frequently during the cold Ohio winters than in the summer. However, we recommend not exceeding 5,000 miles since your last oil change and checking your owner's manual if you're unsure about when to change your oil.
What Happens if You Don't Change your Oil?
If you avoid changing your oil, the results aren't pretty. There will begin to be buildup in the cooler parts of the engine such as the crankcase, camshafts, and valves. In result, it can lead to sludge or carbon deposits coming out of the old engine oil.

Getting your oil changed is one of the most inexpensive services you can get for your vehicle, especially at Mentor Mitsubishi. The price of your oil change at our Mentor dealership will vary based on the type of oil, but you can expect the cost of your oil change to start around $34.95.

Why is the Oil Change Light On?
Your vehicle's "oil life" is based on two things; engine conditions and accumulated engine revolutions. Your vehicle's on-board computer calculates the remaining engine oil life and alerts you on the dashboard. The on-board computer monitors engine temperature and load, trip length and total miles driven as well as vehicle and engine speed.
