Any engine oil change should be performed by a professional. The data presented in this article were taken from official owner’s manuals, and recommendations are given based on our personal experience. If your car is still under warranty, it is best to contact an official dealer to do the oil change. Otherwise, you need to know how much and what kind of engine oil to put in your engine.
We recommend changing the oil in the Mitsubishi Outlander engine every 6,000-10,000 miles. It is recommended to adhere to basic checks and the specified schedule so as not to encounter the following problems:
- The lubricating properties of oil lose their relevance if the oil is outdated and now does more harm than good. As a result, there is a lack of lubrication between moving mechanisms, noise, and vibration, engine knocking, overheating, and increased fuel consumption.
- Heat dissipation properties deteriorate in the oil, and there is not enough ventilation, which leads to overheating and melting of engine components.
- Reduced corrosion protection.
- Combustion and wear products accumulate in the engine channels. They become clogged, and the engine fails.

How Much Oil Goes From Low To Full On Dipstick?
To accurately assess your engine’s oil level, using a dipstick is the ideal option. To use it correctly, remove it and wipe clean with a cloth before placing back in its tube. On each side of the dipstick you will see two separate indicators: “low” and “full.” While how much oil needed varies depending on vehicle type, generally speaking between half way to full up should suffice when reading the stick.
