Maintaining your Honda vehicle means ensuring its efficiency, safety, and longevity. Here's a recommended maintenance schedule to help you keep your Honda running smoothly.
Routine Maintenance (7,500 – 22,500 – 37,500 – 52,500– 67,500 – 82,500 miles):
At these intervals, Honda recommends to change the oil and filter, check and replace fluids, rotate tires, inspect tire tread and pressure, inspect brakes, and lubricate the throttle linkage. These regular checks and tasks ensure your Honda performs optimally and stays safe on the road. One place we at King's Auto Repair differ from Honda on oil changes is they claim 10,000-mile oil changes for normal maintenance. We see a lot of vehicles that develop engine issues once they are out of warranty from these extended 10,000-mile oil changes. Mostly timing chain and Variable Camshaft issues. We only use high quality synthetic oil from Quaker State or Pennzoil to keep your engine clean and running efficiently. Checking other fluids like coolant, brake fluid, and transmission fluid should also be part of your regular service visits.
Intermediate Maintenance (15,000 – 45,000 – 75,000 –105,000 miles):
As your Honda hits these milestones, it requires more extensive services. This includes lubricating the chassis and hinges, replacing the oil drain plug and gasket, replacing windshield wipers, replacing spark plugs as needed, rotating and balancing tires, servicing the transmission,inspecting the undercarriage, checking shocks and struts, checking and adjusting the clutch pedal, inspecting the A/C and heater, replacing the air conditioning filter, inspecting the parking brake, re-torquing the drive shaft,checking headlights, interior lamps, and exterior lamps, inspecting steering systems, gear box, and wheel, inspecting the fuel system, checking differential oil, checking brake linings and hoses, and conducting a road test for quality control. These steps ensure your Honda remains reliable and efficient.
Major Maintenance (30,000 – 60,000 – 90,000 – 120,000miles):
Reaching these significant mileage markers means your Honda requires comprehensive maintenance. This includes checking the fuel tank cap gasket, fuel lines, and connections, servicing the PCV valve, servicing the transmission, inspecting and cleaning the battery cables and terminals,replacing differential oil, checking transfer case oil, lubricating the propeller shaft, inspecting air elements, checking exterior and interior lamps,lubricating wheel bearings, inspecting the propeller shaft flex coupling, and conducting a road test for quality control.
